Just back from vacation so not a lot of time to shop this week, but my $18.35 Fred Meyer rebate was waiting to be used so that cut down on a big chunk of my bill. All my stores are close together so it is easy for me to hop from one to another in a short amount of time.
Fred Meyer – This is my main store for food shopping. They have the yogurt I like (which I am willing to pay a little more for) and they send out lots of coupons and a quarterly rebate. Over the summer they had double fuel points and I probably saved around $25 from that. And they have a free item every Friday! My most recent rebate was $18.35 which I used to grab some staples for the week.
Wheat Germ – regular price $4.99 (an expensive item but glad it was covered by my rebate!)
(3) ½ gallons of milk – $1.25 each with in-ad coupon = $3.75
Dozen (cage free omega 3) eggs – $2.99
6 Dannon coffee yogurts – $.50 each = $3.00
3 Tillamook coffee yogurts – $1.25 each = $3.75
4 Chobani strawberry – $.50 each sale price = $2.00
Simple Green = $2.00 regular price. Got 4 Simple Green for 1.00 @ Walmart. It was two different transactions. Transaction #1 Bought 2 Simple Green = 4.00 – Used $2/1 Simple Green (www.hopster.com) – Used $1.50/1 Simple Green (www.Hopster.com oop = .50 cents Transaction #1 Bought 2 Simple Green = 4.00 – Used $2/1 Simple Green (www.hopster.com) – Used $1.50/1 Simple Green (www.Hopster.com oop = .50 cents Total oop= $1.00 making each Simple green .25 Cents.

Went to Target to get some Hot Pockets & Bagel Bites when I got my receipt, I discovered there was a promotion. My receipt shows buy 4 get 1 free. I purchase 6 Bagel Bites & 4 Hot Pockets. Hot Pockets were $2.04 each ($8.16) and the Bagel Bites were $1.99 each ($11.94). I purchased them all together so it gave me 2 Bagel Bites free since they were cheaper. On the Hot Pockets I used a $0.50/3 MC & $1.00/4 TC and the Bagel Bites I used (2) $1.50/3 MC & (1) $1.50/3 TC. That brought my total down to $10.12 before taxes I used 3 $5 gift cards from my trip earlier this week and got them for free!!!

What do you mean by Rite Aid coupons? I have used the video deals coupon with an additional MQ. I guess I am wondering if one uses the coupons you load to your card (digital coupons), can you also use an additional MQ from the newspaper?
Every year I donate toys to the Toys for Tots Foundation and I set a budget for myself of $50. I use my coupons to always get the most out of my money. Last year I was able to donate approximately 25 toys with my budget and coupons! (All toys were name brand like Fisher Price, PlaySkool, Nerf, etc). Toys for Tots is something I have held very dear to my heart for the past couple of years and my former Marine daddy participates with his Marine Corps buddies every year. For any of you that has extra cash to spare (even just a few dollars) to buy a toy, then please consider this organization at Christmas time! I start finding deals early in the year and save up until donation time.
