My Mini Extreme Couponing Shopping Trip

PhotobucketSo many great deals lately that I couldn’t resist.  So, I went back to ShopRite last night (Saturday) and sent my husband this morning for the Oatmeal deal.  I was a bit nervous since I was using an $8 catalina that I got from the Natural Instincts deal.  Sometimes those high value catalinas beep.  My husband probably would have said okay never mind and just paid the $8 instead of getting the cashier to have it pushed through.  But, it scanned through without an issue and his trip was a success.  He even said the people behind him commented on the trip.  Do I dare send him for a more complicated deal?  Ah, no, I’m not pushing my luck yet.

On the trip today, I opted for the 5 Quaker Oatmeal using 4 coupons because I had the $8 catalina I wanted to use.  If I had done the deal I had posted with the 4 instant oatmeal and 1 grits, I would have been under the $8 and I couldn’t use my catalina.

Here are my deals:

    Today I made meat loaf using butterball turkey meat. In 3 shopping trips I managed to buy 16 packs of meat. I also cooked chicken soup with free Pennsylvania Dutch pasta. I got for free around 20 packs.

    I tried something new with my stash of egg noodles. Stovetop cooked chicken breast in teriyaki sauce and then added cooked egg noodles to the pan. My kids loved it! For the grownups in the house, added cooked onion and red peppers.

    I was at Shop Rite today and Spike’s Salsa is still on sale for $0.99!

  • Q. Pon

    I did the grits deal and my $5 catalina printed out, but it says “on your next Quaker purchase.” Does that mean I have to use it on Quaker stuff? I thought it was going to be a $5 shoprite coupon.

    Thanks!

    • Joan

      Bummer, but store ad says $5 on Quaker products.

  • Michele

    Where did you get the $1/1 Quaker products coupons?

  • Lucy

    I made meatballs with the ground turkey ( I got 4 packages) they were soooo yummy, I used the Ragu sauce that was on sale few weeks ago and the pasta from the ‘can can sale’ he he. Very cheap meal and everybody was impressed 🙂

    Thanks very much for posting great deals!!!!!

    Did the $8 catalina have natural instincts on it? If it did, isn’t it supposed to be used for Natural Instincts product?

    • Cindy

      It’s a catalina to be used on anything in the store.
