Save Money Monday 6

Got some really good couponing deals this week. The kids and I hit 5 stores today. Two were not for couponing. I went to Trader Joe’s to get my favorite Orange Chicken and some steel cut oats to make crockpot oatmeal. The other non-couponing trip was Wal-Mart to pick up whatever I couldn’t get while couponing.


Couponing, Meijer, ChicagoMeijer currently has their buy 10 for $10, get the 11th item free deal. I only intended to go in for the Bisquick, Creamers and Sunny D. I saw that the chicken nuggets were $1 each and we love this kind here, so I got enough to get the 11th free item. Also, the cat food was $2.79 each and I had 2 coupons for $3 off. I made money on the cat food!

  1. Great shopping I want that FINISH Deal where did you get the coupon?

    I hate JEWEL thats all I’m saying. I went to dominicks and with the online coupon selection I got Turkey for $3.98 a lb and they had it for $5 a lb on the sign. I think it’s crazy they make you jumps through hoops but I love saving $

  2. Airwick was in the 3/20 Smart Source
    Finish was the 3/6 Smart Source

    You buy 2 of the Airwicks and 3 of the Finish to equal $20 and get $10 back in ECB.
