My Albies Trip Today

A great promo, doublers AND ice cream. Does it get any better? All this for $29.39! And I even bought non-sale items (GASP!) because I had to get a few staples and I didn't feel like going to 2 stores.

Here's how I did it:

Transaction #1:
I did the Breyers deal we told you about here. It was my first promo transaction, so I did not have the $15 catalina factored in.

$22.20 total OOP

Transaction #2:

4- GM cereals $1.88/each- used 2 $1/2 GM cereals 11/8-SS
1- Yoplait YoPlus $2.49/each- used $1/1 11/8-SS
2- Betty Crocker Frosting $1.69/each- used 2 $.50/1
4- Betty Crocker Potatoes $1.69/each-used 4 $.40/1
1- Gold Medal Flour $1.79/each - used $.50/1
3- Progresso Soups $1.69/each- used $1.10/3
1- Pillsbury Toaster Strudel $2.99/each- used $1/1

TOTAL BEFORE COUPONS: $30.00
-$8.20 in coupons
-$3 in doublers
-$15 cat from Breyers transaction
=$3.80 total OOP
Receive ANOTHER $15 cat

Transaction #3:
Everything else you see in the picture!
I used these coupons:
2- Lindsay Olives $1/2
Cheese $1/2 lbs
2- Healthy Choice $2/1
Coupons for 2 free bags of Alexia Crunchy Snacks I received in the mail

GRAND TOTAL FOR ALL 3 TRANSACTIONS: $29.39!!

I SAVED $118.06!!!

Dang thats awesome. Crazy you got the bryers deal at the same store I was told no and I'm bummed I had to put it back cause my head wouldn't let me do the math and when I got home I realized it woulda still been a good deal. :)

My 11/8 SS insert did not have any GM cereal coupons...in fact, there was nothing that matched up to the sale in the entire insert. I get the Press Tribune...is the Statesman insert different?

Proud Mom,

Occasionally the Statesman gets different coupons in their inserts than the Press Tribune. I used to get the Tribune but switched to the Statesman because that was the case a few weeks in a row. For the most part though, they usually contain the same coupons.
