Lunch Break Albies Run- A Few Fab Finds!

Here is what I purchased today. Not pictured my 2 gallons of Milk for .17 each!

If you missed out on how to get the Milk for .17 see Cathy's post here.

My produce rule is to get produce that is on a 4 or 5 star deal according to PYP that week. So you don't have to go to multiple stores!
So I bought Peaches and Nectarines .99 lb. 4 star
I was in a rush so I forgot to buy:
Eat Smart cut vegetables 10-12 oz. $1.00 5 star
Hot House tomatoes 1.49 lb. 4 star
Leaf lettuce - green, red, or Romaine $0.99 5 star
Russet potatoes 10 lb. bag $1.99 4 star

Bagel Bites $2 x 4 = $8
Tuna $1.25 x 6 =$7.50

Used (2) $1/2 Bagel Bites coupons and doubled
Used (2) $1.50/3 Tuna coupons

Saved $7 with coupons

Bought 10 items in promotion got $5 off instantly!

Final Price: $3.50 for everything after coupon and deal!
Plus I got a $1 catalina coupon to use next time so it was like paying only $2.50

We love these instant Breakfast shakes. I even got the ok from Dr. O to drink them. Sorry Cathy, but he said they are way better for you than cereal! ;)

They are $2.50/box after deal, coupon & doublers

This is not a killer price on these, but it is about as good as I can find. When ever I can get them for less than .27/serving I stock up. These were .25/serving!

Now for my Fab Finds!
Haagan Daaz Ice Cream cups $1 each

Used $1/3 coupon here
Doubled to save another $1
Final Price: $1 for 3 or .33 each.

I used the ice cream cups as a filler for the bread.

This Roman Meal Bread is priced at $1.98!
Find a pink peelie on the bottom for $1 off
Use doubler. SAVE another $1
Final Price: .02 overage

The bubbles are pictured b/c Albertsons will not pay you to shop in the store, so the bubbles ended up being my filler item to bring the subtotal back above negative. I was not thinking ahead or I would have used my produce or something I was needing as a filler. This is what I grabbed when the checker said to me, "we can not pay you to shop here."

Total .48

These Hefty bags were in the clearance for $3.99

I used $1 off from RP 5/17 and doubled my coupon!

Remember to always check the clearance section!

FYI- When I bought my Tuna these coupons printed with my $1 catalina for $1/3 and $2.50/7.

This may or may not happen for you. May vary by store!
