Great Deals I Found this Week

Rather than post all my grocery trips from this week, I thought I would highlight some of the great deals that I found.

At Target, Delmonte canned veggies were on sale for 50 cents each. We eat mostly frozen veggies with the exception of green beans. We ate our last can this week so it was the perfect time to stock up.

Bought (8) cans of Delmonte Green Beans, 50 cents each
Used (2) $1/4 printable MQ (no longer available)
Final Price: 25 cents each :)

Eight cans will last us a few months since we usually only eat green beans every other week. Target also had the Stouffer's Toasted Subs on sale for $2.50 each. I had an opportunity to stack coupons to get them for cheap!

Bought (2) Stouffer's Frozen Toasted Subs, $2.50 each
Used (2) $1.50/1 Stouffer's Toasted Sub printable MQ from FaceBook (become a fan and click on the News tab)

Safeway is having a Buy 5, Get $5 off promotion until Tuesday. There are several different items included in the promotion....Nature Valley granola bars, Pop Tarts, Quaker Oatmeal, and various different cereals. You can read about the included products in the Safeway Ad. My husband likes healthier cereals and he was almost out. So I decided to get him cereal and surprise the kids with PopTarts (I haven't bought them in a long time and I knew they would be excited!).

Bought (3) PopTarts, $2.00 each
Bought (2) Crispix, $3.00 each
Used (1) $1.25/3 Poptarts MQ 3/28 RP

Giant Trip #2

The kids asked to go to the playground tonight. The playground we went to was right around the corner from Giant so I decided to stop by and pick up milk with my FREE milk catalina.

(2) 4-packs of Dole Fruit Bowls - $2.00 each
