A good week indeed!

FREE!
This was a GREAT week in grocery shopping - I got everything in the picture above for Free!  You read it right, FREE!  The grocery sales and coupons all synced up for some amazing freebies, here's how it worked.
  • Lawry's Taco Seasoning: On sale for $.50 - $.50 coupon for 2 packets = Free. I had 4 coupons because I get 4 Sunday Papers so I got 8 packets for Free.
  • Nivea Body Wash: On sale for $3.99 - $4 off coupon = Free. I had 4 of these coupons so I got 4 bottles for Free.
  • Bugles Chips: On sale for a $1 - $.50 coupon which is multiplied to a $1 off b/c the store is multiplying coupons = Free.  I had 4 coupons so I got 4 bags for Free.
  • Chex Mix: On sale for $1 - $.50 coupon multiplied to a $1 off = Free.  I had 8 of these coupons so I got 8 bags for Free.
  • Valley Fresh Steamers: On sale for a $1 - $.40 coupon which was multipied to a $1 = Free.  I had 4 coupons so I got 4 bags for Free.  Only 2 bags are pictured b/c we already ate 2 bags!
  • Suddenly Pasta Salad: On sale for a $1 - $.40 coupon multiplied to a $1 off = Free.  I only 1 coupon printed from the internet.
  • Cover Girl Eye Liner & Eye Shadow: 
    • Eye Liner: On sale for $1.09
    • Eye Shadow: On sale for $1.24
    • I had a $2.50 coupon for 2 Cover Girl products. ($1.09 + $1.24) - $2.50 = $.17 credit
    • I had 4 of these coupons so it was a $.17 credit x 4 = .68 credit
    • There was also a store promotion, get $4 off your final bill if you buy any 4 Cover Girl products
    • The total taken from my final bill was $4.68.

I also got these 3 cake mixes for free b/c one of the grocery stores ran this promotion: Buy 2 Betty Crocker Cake mixes and get 3 cake mixes for Free!  I used a $1 off  (1) Betty Crocker cake mix + (1) frosting coupon and got these 3 cake mixes for Free.

As I stated this was a good week!

This was last week's freebies...
  • Snuggle Dryer Sheets: On sale for $2.99 - $3 off coupon = Free.
  • Flipz Pretzels: On sale for $ 1.00 - $.50 coupon, multiplied to a $1 = Free.
That was it for last week, not the quantity of items as this week.  This week was like hitting the mother load!


Did you find this interesting or was more like a painful math lesson?  Leave a comment below and let me know!

  1. Love it! I am never that good, I only get 1 paper, but I do love freebies! I hate it when I have a store coup and a manufacture coup and they mistakenly only use 1 and take both coups, then I realize it when I get home and I am out a perfectly good coupon! Gotta be better about checking my receipts. Kroger out here which is Frys gives you free products if the price comes up wrong which I have caught a few times. Good for you! Thanks for sharing your tips!
