My Meijer Deals!

September 16, 2009



Here’s what I did this week at Meijer… I spent just over $3 on all of this!  YES!  That’s not a typo… $3!!!

I did the Nabisco/Kraft rebate again.  This time I did it for the food pantry, and will have the rebate sent through for them.  It went like this…

5 Kraft Easy Mac… $5 ($1/5 Q plus $2/4 Mealbox Q)

I know some of you wonder…

September 9, 2009

I just reorganized my stockpile, so I thought I’d show you.  This is just food.  Toiletries and household goods have other spots.  And I do have a large pantry uptairs.  Forgive the angle.  My stockpile is in what we call “the tunnel”.  It’s a narrow hallway of shelving on either side (thanks Dante!), so I can’t get a straight-on angle that would include more than a few boxes of cereal.

Cheap Hair Stuff

This week, Walgreens has Scunci hair accessories for 99 cents!  Pick any Scunci accessory $3.99 and under, and have the checker scan the in-ad scunci coupon.  Great deal!


Cheap Soup!

September 4, 2009

Just this week I noticed that we were down to the last can of soup from last winter’s stockpile.  And voila!  A soup deal!  Here’s a simple deal to do at Jewel now through next Wednesday…

Buy 7 cans Progresso soup (make SURE they ring up at $2.87 before preferred card… the vegetable soup rang up too cheap)

Use 2 $1.10 off 3 or $1.00 off 3 Qs, available here or here

Pay $9.47 oop (assuming you use the $1.10 coupons), get back $5 OYNO

Total of 64 cents per can!
To be sure you hit the $20 to trigger the catalina, be sure to scan your soup first, watch to see that the total hits $20, THEN scan your preferred card!
