Safeway deal

Yesterday was my big grocery shopping day for the month. (I shop BIG once then semi-big later on) It's always a bit crazy, as all the kids come with me and we have to cross the ferry so it just becomes a whole day ordeal. I found out that Safeway was having another one of their promotion deals where if you buy 25 of the selected items you get $20 off your next purchase. This can be rolled into 25 more items to get $20 more off...on and on until the sale ends (July 29th)

So I just thought I'd try it out.

I bought:

4 bottles Sierra mist
1 bag Chex mix
2 Brownie mixes
1 bag Cheerio snack mix
1 tub Frosting
2 Jolly time popcorn
3 Ragu past sauces
4 boxes pop tarts
2 Peter pan peanut butters
1 6 pack Sprite soda
4 Snickers marathon energy bars

I chose my items based on the coupons I found.
I paid 38.18
and got a $20 coupon for next time. :)

If you include the $20 coupon, then I got all those 25 items for 18.18 (if you're really into math that's an average of $0.72 each!)

If you have a Safeway nearby I'd recommend you give it a try.
Go here for more great deals people have found!

I'm going to pick up a paper today to see this week's ad and start my plan for round two, hopefully it will be healthier!

(Just in case this left you wondering, no that isn't all I bought. We went to Costco next for the real bulk of my shopping.)

Your list was a kids dream Laura! (come to think of you know, I'm dieting, so it's my dream said FROSTING.)

I'm going to check it out. thanks for the tip.

I seriously wish that I was better at scoping this kind of thing out.

I keep reading about it, but I am too lazy to get off my fanny and work on it.

I don't do those kind of sales, since it's usually all store bought mixes, enriched bleached breads, pop, chips and stuff like that that we just don't eat......

And we don't do sales like that because I don't normally buy that type of stuff, so it isn't a savings if I don't need any of it. I've heard of people doing sales just because they think it's a good deal...

Is all of that stuff good for you to have around, considering the fact that you're on a diet????



Take care!
