My Meijer Trip

May 20, 2009

Ahhh… another UNBELIEVABLE week at Meijer.  For those of you who are new to couponing, there are good weeks and there are not as good weeks.  The past two weeks have been CRAZY awesome!  So today, I spent $18 in groceries and saved over $150!!!  And $5 of the groceries was for a friend 🙂


Here’s a basic breakdown of what I did…

Bananas, honey, milk & yogurt… FULL PRICE!  What are ya gonna do?  I did have 2 40 cent off coupons for the yogurt

10 ears corn… 19 cents each

6 packages of Kraft singles… $1.68 each, used $1/2 printable and $1/2 Meijer coupons=68 cents each

9 boxes Triscuits/Wheat Thins… $1.67 each, used $1 printable=67 cents each

Crystal Light Raspberry Tea… $3.29, used FREE Catalina I got for buying 2 Wheat Thins!=FREE

2 Ragu Pasta Sauce… $1.50 each, used $1/2 coupon from newspaper and $1/2 Meijer coupon=50 cents each

6 Sweet Baby Rays Marinades, 6 Sweet Baby Rays Dipping Sauces, 5 Sweet Baby Rays Grilling Sauces… 99 cents each, used $1 coupon from newspaper for each=FREE

2 DanActive 4-packs… $2.00 each, used $1 coupons from newspaper=$1 each

4 Ortega Taco Seasonings… 71 cents each, used 75 cents/2 coupon from newspaper and $1/4 Meijer coupon=34 cents for all

2 A1 Steak Sauce (seasoned varieties)… $2.50 each, used $2 coupons from newspaper and $1/2 Meijer coupon=FREE

And the BEST deal of them all…

2 Leapfrog Tag books… on clearance for $5.40 each (from $12.99), used $5 coupon from newspaper=40 cents each!!!

I also bought Audrey a bike helmet, which I didn’t include here, because it wasn’t in the deals.  However, it did bring my pre-coupon price to over $100, so I was able to use a coupon for $8/$100 purchase at Meijer.  So there you have it… my BEST Meijer trip ever!



  1. WOW!!!! I just made my own list off of yours! Thanks!

  2. What does the cashier say to you when you’ve gone from over $100 done to less than $20? She must think she did something wrong and they must dread having to ring all those coupons;)

    • Some think it’s cool. Some get annoyed. But the stores purposely have their sales when the coupons are out to get your business!

  3. That Highland store is so much more expensive than Merriville! I don’t know if it is worth the gas though or the time to drive out to Merriville. You of course did Great! I am going back for come Wheat Thins – Of Course.
    Then – I will post my Crystal Light deal – The Crystal Light is a Meijer Coupon – so you can stack with the $1 printable from the Kraft Printables – so you should be able to make $1 on each one and then also purchase the Crystal Light Skin Essentials – Free. That is a lot of Free Crystal Light.

  4. Kate,
    How do you get more than one printable coupon. I am only ever able to print one.

    • Karyn,
      If you hit your back button, you should be able to print a second one. Or go back to the site and do it again. Many of the Meijer deals were with the Kraft coupons, and you could print a second set of those at the Jewel Osco savings site and at kraftfoods.com
