Make Your Dime Go Further With Mini Rolls


By now you've all seen how to get Fruit Roll Ups for $.10 this week at Albertsons. One way I'm making my dime go further is buying Fruit Roll-Ups mini rolls. The regular size has 10 in a box, but the mini rolls have 18.

When my kids want a snack, they usually want 2 of whatever I give them, no matter the size. Especially since the younger one is in the stage where he needs something in each hand and isn't a fan of me breaking or biting his snacks in half to accomplish that. With the mini rolls, I get almost twice as many for the same price.

I also try to remember when baking cookies, cutting brownies, etc., that if I make them smaller, the kids can have 2 for the price of 1 regular size, and to them it's all the same. Or they've just never known the difference. Either way!

I bought 5 fruit roll ups in 1 transaction just this morning and it printed. It should work just fine!

I bought 15 boxes of these yesterday, but NOT for my kids. My hubby LOVES them. Now he can have 1 in each hand!

I went this morning and becaus I have a friend that does not coupon..I go to her house and get double tht eamount of coupons. So I got 25 boxes of the fruit snacks this morning. Even cooler? On about 10 of the boxes was another $1/2 coupon. WOOHOO!! I'm tempted to go and buy another 25 boxes!

I usually get those too, but at my store they were marked regular price and not even ringing up for a $1. I'm glad it worked for you!

Jessica- That is a temptation! What are you going to do?

At the 36th and state store, they are not marked as $1 but ring up as a $1 and they print the catalina. I did WAY TOO MANY today, I special ordered, So I did not clear the shelves :)

Can anyone confirm what is included in the $1.00 sale. I have not been to Albies yet, but my neighbor said it was ONLY the fruit snacks, not the fruit roll ups or gushers. She is new to couponing, so I just wanted to double check! Thank you if anyone has any info on this.

I went to Alberstons @ Woodinville today, and can confirm that the Betty Crocker fruit roll ups, fruit by the foot, fruit stickers, and gushers were all marked $1, and, buying 5 of the 18-pack of mini-rolls triggered a $3.50 catalina. There were plenty on the shelves of all kinds except I took the last 5 of the 18-packs. Sorry - I hope they put more the shelves for you tonight. =S
