Triple dipping at Safeway!

Safeway has a pretty good deal right now for Kellogg's cereals. At first, it doesn't seem like a great deal, but combine a few different deals to make it GREAT!

First, the cereals are $2.49 on sale and if you buy 5, you will get a free movie ticket instantly for any movie up to $12. Now, use some coupons:
$1.50/2 6/5 RP
$1.00/2 6/12 RP
or several $1.00/2 or $.70/1 at
Now, your cereal is either $1.49 each (with $.70/1 corn pops or Raisin bran printable coupons), $1.74 each, or $1.99 each with $ off 2 coupons. Not a super price for cereal yet.

But, look for the boxes that have the cars promo on it. For every 4 codes you put in online (1 code per box), you can get a $5 gas card (visa pre-paid card). So, you have now paid from $7.45-$9.95 for 5 boxes of cereal and you will get $5 back in a visa/gas card and a free movie ticket. Good Deal!!

Some, a very few, types of cereal that are included in the cars promotion are also good for a different $10 rebate when you buy 10 boxes. You can find details here:

Buy some of the cereals that cross over and you can now send for a rebate with 10 upcs. GREAT DEAL!!!!!!!

Triple dipping: free movie ticket, $5 gas card, $10 rebate

What feeding 10 people looks like

This is our produce buy for the week. I shop on wednedays at the hispanic markets for produce as they have the best prices and wednesdays they have produce specials. I am almost exclusively buying my produce here now or price matching at walmart.

We got 43 lbs of produce tonight including apples, cantaloupe, grapes, strawberries, onions, tomatoes, lettuce, mangos, and peaches.

We also got 7 lbs of rice and 15 lbs of meat(pork chops and whole chickens).

We paid @ $38 for all of this with $20 of that being the meat. We will have to get more meat and still have oranges to get, but with 10 people in the house, this will last us about a week, maybe a few days longer, but we will be buying more next Wednesday.

Though this is a coupon blog, it is rarer these days for me to get free produce with coupons, so this is the way to go. And since my huge stockpile of free boxes of rice is gone now, I will also be buying rice here until I can get it free again. I am paying $1 for 3-4 pounds of rice when it is on sale instead of $1.50 for one pound at Fry's.
