The Deals: Ok, I know you’re all wondering about this being paid to shop thing so I’ll cut right to the chase on that one! I had printed 2 coupons each for a $1 off a bottle of Kraft BBQ sauce. This week Hy-Vee had said sauce on sale for .78 but after my coupon I actually was making .22 on each bottle! Sweet! Other Hy-Vee deals included Miracle Whip for .99 each (that’s 77% off), Potatoes were only $1.58 for the 10 pound bag, the Ziploc Bags were marked down to $2 a box and there were tear off coupons on the display for $1 off a box, the Wheat Thins and Triscuits were each just .99 a box (that’s $2 off each, or a savings of 67%) and the Ball Park Franks were $1 each (70% off).
Price Chopper also held some sweet deals if you printed off those Kellogg’s cereal coupons that were available online last week! I paid just .78 a box for the Raisin Bran and Mini-Wheats – that’s 78% off. The blackberries were .88 a container (78% off), the tomatoes were .88 a pound (65% off) and last but definitely not least I paid just .18 a package for the Bar S Jumbo Franks! They were on sale for .68 a piece and I had a save $1 on 2 coupon which brought my savings to 91%.
Notable at Aldi were the Gala Apples – 3 pound bags were $1.29 each so I snagged 2.
