Grocery Store Pics for the week of 5/12/10

Red Grapes: .99/lb
Dole or Fresh Express bagged lettuce: .78
Gala Apples: $1.29/lb

Boy what a week here.....They are giving us plenty of practice for the upcoming SUPER DOUBLES!!!

E-Vic Special: Aquarias 24 pack water: $1.99, limit 1

Green Giant Creamed Spinach: $1.00, use the .50 printable, Link: GG Frozen Veges
This particular item may not thrill you, but there are some great recipes for spinach dip that call for the creamed spinach.  Perfect to make ahead, freeze and bake when needed.
Gold Medal Flour: $1.50

Fruit 2O 6 pack $2.09, use .55 printable, Link:Fruit 2o 6 pack

Spray n Wash: BOGO at $1.67 ea, use the .75 printable, Link: spray n wash

Shrek-tacular Savings:  Save $4 instantly when you purchase 10 participating General Mills Products using your VIC card.

There are a ton of scenarios for this, but I have listed below what I did today.
2 Betty Crocker Box Potatoes $1.25 ea, use .25 q from 3/28 SS = .75 ea
4 Betty Crocker Cookie mixes $1.50 ea (2 different flavors), use the .40 q from the 3/28 SS = .70 ea
4 Totinos Pizza Rolls 40 ct., $2.50 ea, use the $1/2 printable: Totinos = $8.00 (great for Youth Group snacks!!!)
Total: $14.45 - $4 instant savings = $10.45
In addition, I will get a $5 catalina good on my next order for purchasing 4 of the Totinos Pizza Rolls.
Grand Total: $5.45
I also have 2 $2.50 catalinas off my next order from doing the McCormick deals, so that will knock my out of pocket to $5.45, my grand total to .45.
Is your head swimming yet?

Another FANTASTIC scenario is...
Purchase 5 Betty Crocker frostings at $1.25 ea
Purchase 5 Betty Crocker cake mixes at .89 ea
use .75 Betty Crocker Cake Mix AND Frosting 5/2 SS

Your grand total will be .45 after you use your coupons and it takes $4 off automatically.
Here's the thing....HT's coupon rules are a little fuzzy on this one - "We double up to three identical items with manufacturer coupon; additional coupons for like item will be honored at face value." question is - are different flavors of an item considered "identical"???? If you think you'll have a problem with this, only use three coupons and purchase 4 other items that fall within the list so that you can get the $4 off your order.

Here is one last scenario following the coupons rules with no interpretation necessary:
2 Betty Crocker Box Potatoes at $1.25 ea, use .25 q from 3/28 SS
2 Betty Crocker Cookies Mixes at $1.50 ea, use .40 q from 3/28 SS
3 Betty Crocker Cake Mixes
3 Betty Crocker Frostings, use 3 .75/2 q for cake mix and frosting
After the $4 is deducted from your order, your total is a whopping $1.57.  Yipee!!!

The way to get your out of pocket the lowest is to purchase mostly inexpensive items, only getting a couple of the higher priced items.  Even if you don't think you will use the item - let's say the box potatoes, you can donate them to your local food pantry.

Three Day Sale: CapriSun 10 pack:$1.77 (limit 4), use $1 Capri Sun Sunrise Product 4/25 SS
= .77

Sargento Shredded Cheese: $1.88, use .75 Sargento Reduced Sodium Cheese 4/18 SS
= .38
There is also a fairly new printable at for .75.

Wacky Mac Pasta: .99, use the .50 printable from

Have a great week!!!
