If you have a Kroger store nearby, find out here how you can get free oatmeal and Colgate toothpaste with e-coupons from Cellfire.
For those who haven't done so, there is a $1.50/1 Yoplait Kids yogurt coupon available here. You should be able to print two by hitting your back button after you print one. This yogurt is often on sale for less than $2 which makes it a very sweet deal after this coupon.
Lea Ann from Mommy's Wish List emailed me this morning to say she had signed up for the Star Fine Foods email list last week and today she received a free recipe booklet and coupons–including a coupon for a free product from Star Fine Foods.
I can't guarantee that if you sign up for the email newsletter, you'll also get the free product coupon, but it's certainly worth a shot! Go here to sign up.
If you've used the $1.10/1 coupon to get free or almost-free Progresso soup recently and found you didn't love it, you can get your money back using this form here. (Thanks, Melissa!)
Ya'll, I have entered a new level of couponing as of today: I used e-coupons. You know, those hi-tech, new-fangled coupons that you load onto your card and can't see or feel, you just have to believe that they are there and believe that they will work? Yep, those.
And contrary to all my fears, they actually worked. Every single last one of them.
Okay, so I only used four, but still, it felt like a major victory. Almost as good as when I went in and tried CVS-ing for the very first time.
Lest you think I did it all by myself though, I have to tell you that Lorrie was at the store, too, and she held my hand through the whole process. If it weren't for her, I would have never tried them in the first place.
I think I'm hooked now, though, as they worked beautifully and saved me some extra money! Yay!
Here's what I got at Dillons and Aldi:
The Idahoan potatoes were free, thanks to coupons a kind friend shared with me. The Yoplait, oatmeal, and Cottonelle were also free, thanks to e-coupons. The Progresso soup was $0.30/can, cheese was on sale for $1.58/8 oz., butter was $1.88, milk was $2.99, Kashi bars were $1 after the $2/1 coupons and a sale.
We bought eggs and fruit at Aldi, since it's much cheaper there and Aldi is so close to Dillons.
If only the Pampers were free. *Sniff* I'm certainly missing CVS when it comes to free diapers. I considered going back to cloth and/or off-brands almost exclusively but after a few days of severe diaper rash, we switched back to our beloved Pampers. There are just some things you can't skimp on and diapers happen to be it for us right now.
All in all, we spent about $38 total this week to buy all the groceries pictured above. Considering I saved $45 at Dillons and that I also bought diapers, I'm pretty happy with that total–especially since it's under our $40 weekly budget.
I still have a freezer full of meat and frozen veggies, along with lots of yummy baked goods from our Baking Day last week, so aside from picking up some free carrots at Target and some $0.19/lb bananas at Wal-Mart (a nearby store has $0.19/lb bananas on Thursday so I can price-match at the Wal-Mart down the street!), we should be set for this week. I'll post our full menu soon so you can see the specifics of what we'll be eating this week.
Kashi recently introduced a new product to the market–Kashi cereal bars. These bars are similar to Nutri-Grain bars but with the healthful goodness of Kashi!
On sale these bars are likely around $2.50 or so. Use this $2/1 coupon to snag a great deal on a yummy new product. By the way, let us know what you find these regularly-priced at in your stores. I'm guessing somewhere around $3.50 or so, but I've not checked yet. (Thanks, Jaycie!)
