back from a couple hours of shaws shopping i didnt due quite as good as you (family doesn't LIKE THE HC SOUP)
and i had no cats to start but all in all it was a great trip I split with my sister total before sales and coupons was 231.67
less store savings and cp 207.15
total oop 24.52
and I still have 10.00 to spend

Ronell said...

Thanks Becky! Great job anonymous! See even though it takes A LOT of planning ahead it's totally work it to sit down and work the deals before you go to the store. I'll sit here for what seems like forever planning everything out so I have as little as possible OOP. It pays off in the end!

Now everyone don't forget to hit up Shaws every day that you can this week to get your 10 HC soups use 3 $1/3 blinkies it will come to $7 and you will have $3 in overage to buy household items you need like bread, milk, eggs, meats, etc. Then you will get another $10 CAT, keep rolling! Happy shopping!

Ronell - that is NUTS!! I can't believe you got all that for FREE!! Great Job! I wish we had that store here, so i could use your suggestions. I just wanted to say nice job on your blog, and great job on your DEALS! :)

I noticed the wesson oil could you tell me is the congra deal spend 25 get 10 just want to see if I can make it work for me I dont see it in my flyer Thanks Ronell

Ronell said...

Hi Anonymous, so sorry I didn't get back to you earlier! The wesson oil is part of the conagra deal spend $25 pre-sale and get $10 back! So I would purchase (2) wesson canola oils which are $7.99 regular price and then (4) Healthy Choice soups which are normally $2.69. Ends up $8.00 OOP and get $10 back!

one more question the bars and fruit snacks can they be mixed and matched to get the 3.50 or must i buy 5 fruit snacks or 5 bars Iknow today is the last day tring to make one more trip where do I find the list of items I only see the back page deals in my flier

Ronell said...

Anonymous, I don't believe that you can mix and match fruit snacks with the bars. You can however get Nature Valley bars and chex mix bars and mix and match those. You also don't have to buy 5 I think if you buy 4 you get $2.50 and if you buy 3 you get $1.50. Good luck with your trip! Oh and the conagra is an unlisted promo. It's not in anyone's flyers so you may want to give it a shot! Especially with 10 HC soups you get $3 in overage and get your $10 back!

The Starkist deal did not give me a catalina - bummer! I paid more as well as the prices are higher here.

Ronell said...

Naturally Frugal Mama did you purchase the solid white albacore in water? It's just the plain tuna pouches, not the tuna creations or whatever the other ones are. I'm also not sure when that $1 CAT deal ends. Sorry it didn't work out for ya! They should have been $1.67 though.
