I made a second trip to Pathmark today where I spent $18.55 which brought me to a couple dollars over my budget. But it was worth it for what I saved. My savings was $68.04. On this trip I used an unusual combo of coupons that even had the nice people at my Pathmark scratching their heads. But in the end it was all good as I try my very best to be an honest coupon shopper and not try to “get away” with deals that are not legit.
First off, the 3 Reese’s Puffs cereals were on major discount as the expiration is close approaching but I know that my 2 kids will devour them within a week. I also had coupons for them which brought them down to about $.25 a box. Then I found a coupon (tearpad) on a shopping trip previously that was for $3 watermelon when you buy 2 Ball Park Franks. They were not on sale but I had a coupon for them plus they also fell into the $6 off pork when you buy Ball Park Franks & Kingsford charcoal coupon that I had. Did I lose you yet?
I also used my $5 off $15 coupon from Stop & Shop as well as a $5 off $40 Pathmark coupon. Then finally the Sorrento were on clearance, again because the expiration date is approaching, and I also had coupons for that. It was a little confusing but it worked. And I got a lot of great products for a little amount of money.
By the way, has anyone ever tried to freeze mozzarella cheese?
