My Fry's Trip -- Yipee!

I headed into Fry's today to cash in on the $10 off $50 Fresh & Easy coupon. I was able to get my total up above the $50 pre tax by getting some FREE stuff that added to my total before coupons were deducted. I won't run through my whole purchase but I will give you the highlights:

Best Life Buttery Spread $1 (sale) - $1/1 MQ = FREE
Tampax Gentle Glide 18 Ct. $2.99 - $2 IPQ - $3 eQ = $2 OVERAGE!
    ** I purchased 2 packages and had planned to pay .99 each after IPQ. However in the end a $3 eQ    came off. I still can't figure out where it came from. If anyone knows let me know so I can post it on the blog! **
Bounty Basic Paper Towels 1.19 - .25 MQ = .19 each
     ** I buy these coupons in lots of 20 off of ebay. I pay $1.44 shipped! A great way to stock up on something we use all the time. Combine this with the $1/1 eCoupon and you are in for some serious SAVINGS! **
Fry's Bread .88 - .50 Target IPQ (doubled!) = .12 overage
Old El Paso Seasoning Packets 1.19 - .50 MQ = .19 each
     ** wyb 3 you'll receive a $1 OYNO Beef & Chicken Catalina
Barilla Piccolini Pasta $1 - $1/2 MQ = .50 each
    ** wyb 3 you'll receive a $2/3 Catalina Coupon -- when you use this you'll get them for .33 each! **
Guerrero Tortillas $1.50 - $1 IPQ = .50 each

In the end my savings were 80% -- Hooray! Thanks so much to Kim over at Arizona Savings for sharing the link to the $10 off $50 purchase coupon! Check out her Favorite Deals post HERE. I also loved the match-ups over at Centsable Shoppin! THANK YOU! I know a lot of work goes into those posts!

Did everyone read the post over at Arizona Savings?

It inspired me to cash in on another great diaper deal! I used her scenario only I only did it once (only 2 codes available!) and got a box of Pampers Size 1 diapers - 180 ct. shipped for only $12.00!!

That's only 6 cents each!!

.50/1 eQ 2L Pepsi & Sierra Mist

My husband came home last night excited to report he'd used an eQ from our Shoppers Card unwittingly. I love a man who loves to save money! The .50 eQ on Pepsi Max and Sierra Mist available on the Fry's website came off when he purchased a 2L Diet Pepsi currently priced at .88 cents. Only .38 for a 2L!

Now I've just got to get my behind to the stores this week for my next covert mission: extra shoppers cards!

Jack in the Box -- Grilled Pastrami $1/1

I saw this coupon online and thought I would share.

Friday Safeway Trip -- Diapers & Soup

I think this is the hands down best deal I have ever gotten on diapers! I didn't even mean for it to be this good, but sigh :) I cannot complain one bit!

9.99 - Huggies Little Snugglers diapers pack
-$2.00 Safeway Store Coupon (in last Sundays paper or just ask the clerk like I did)
-$2.00 IPQ printed a few weeks ago
-$2.00 Huggies eQ Little Snugglers/Little Movers
-$3.00 Huggies eQ Pure & Natural
=.99 cents cost!
1.00 - (3) Soup at Hand
-.50 (doubled) MQ
.81 tax
1.80 cost for all 4 items!! HOORAY!

The story on the eQ's both coming off... I don't know why but it is a happy little thing isn't it!

They did not have any Pure & Natural diapers in my Safeway store. I was really bummed b/c I had another IPQ for the P&N variety for $2.50/1 and it expired yesterday. So I was sad that I would get to score a second pack of diapers for $2.50 thinking the Little Snugglers were costing me $4. Well, when I went up and checked out BOTH eQs came off!

Want to score this deal? Go on over to scroll to the bottom and click on Coupons. Load the Huggies eQs to your card, grab an IPQ or the $1.50 Huggies MQ from a past Sunday paper and head on in to Safeway TODAY! The Safeway Coupon for 7.99 diapers only is good through today 9/18.

I didn't have one so I just asked my clerk and she scanned the one she had behind the register. The FIRST TIME a Safeway trip has left me happy! haha

Real California Milk Coupons

I know there is drama about the Real California Milk coupons. Read all about my drama HERE.

But just wanted to let all those haters see for themselves that they are not FRAUD. Please to go the Real California Milk Homepage and scroll down to the bottom. Click on either the "Click Here to Download a Coupon" button's for either Cheese or Milk products. What do you get? A PDF.

Remember that the products must carry that seal. A lot of the Lucerne cheese at Safeway carries this seal. And Kim over at Arizona Savings has been able to use it on the milk as well. As you can see in my drama that my Safeway is not so friendly.

Free Mini Monopoly Game at Frys

I saw this post on It's Hip to Save. So, I thought I would print the coupons "just in case" I found one of the items on one of the toy clearance tables at Frys (Pinal/McCartney.) They have quite a few Mini Monopoly games on clearance for $4. So, after the coupon......FREE!!!

They also have Pictureka Flipper Game for $9.10 so after the $4 coupon..........$5.10.

I did see one Clue game but didn't check the price, Sorry.
