Earlier this week- my oldest offspring mentioned that we were out of chef boyardee. And for her this was a problem. She asked when we were going to get some more.
When it goes on sale I suppose. Lucky for her, a really great sale popped up at Kroger starting yesterday.
If you haven't looked at their ad- you might want to visit it. It's a pretty good sale. They have lots of stuff 'buy 10 get instant $3 off PLUS you get a catalina coupon good for $3 off your next purchase.
I didn't make a day of it- but I did buy 15 cans of chef boyardee, 4 cans of manwich and 11 boxes of pizza rolls. I know- neither are health food, but with kids and crazy lives they work. I also bought lettuce, tomatoes, grapes, a cantelope and banannas. I just felt the need to mention that. (I didn't take a whole purchase photo- that just seemed like too much work yesterday. sorry)
15 Chef Boyardee- $.99 per can (after all coupons and savings paid $.16 per can)
11 Totino Pizza Rolls- $1.29 per small box (after all coupons and savings paid $.29 per box)
4 Manwich- $.99 (after coupons paid $.14 per can)
My coupons- $.35 off 3 cans of chef boyardee (5 coupons, each doubled, -$3.50), $.40 off 2 totino pizza rolls (5 coupons, each doubled, -$4), and Buy 3 manwich get 1 free (-$.99).
Plus 3 $3 instant savings (one for each 10 items) -$9
$15.51 total out of pocket.
PLUS I have 3 $3 catalinas good off my next purchase.
So if you take off the $9 coupons I received, it is like I spent $6.51 for all of that!
And then- here is the icing on my coupon cake- while on the way to the restroom with my little man (we ALWAYS go to the restroom no matter where we shop, I think he's in a club or something) I looked over the clearance rack and there was a whole basket of this John Frieda shampoo marked down from $6.49 per bottle to $1. I had $1 off coupons! Some more free shampoo!
Always check those clearance racks and compare to your coupons. You never know.
