So I am back to square one with this promo and looking forward to stocking the freezer. Note– with these deals I never buy things that my family won’t use- especially perishables which are difficult to donate. We are expecting baby #2 in May and I am very happy to have lots of frozen meals/snacks on hand for the last weeks of my pregnancy and after the baby is born.

I also had a 10/50 coupon for the grand reopening of my store. I have several more of these coupons that don’t expire until 4/4 so I plan to work these weekly. I also used the $4 catalina from the Post cereal deal.
If you have 10% off on your Safeway card you can also really maximize your discounts- I have heard Safeway is even doubling that discount in some areas.
Also my store has had special Grand Reopening sales for the last two weeks. If you happen to pass by a store with this signage out front I highly recommend stopping in! I picked up tons of great coupons and tried (unsuccessfully) to win one of the 300 random gift cards they gave out last weekend. The ads are slightly different and have a few items that are part of the Grand reopening and exclusive to that store.
Stay tuned as I will be using this catalina on the Chill at Home promo in the next few days.
1. A free 12pk of soda courtesy of WalMart
2. A free hand car wash valued at $15.00- no purchase necessary
3. A $25 gift card to Chevron for contacting my local State Farm agent to see if they can beat our prices on insurance (they couldn’t- but I would have switched in a heartbeat if they could)
4. A $25 welcome voucher from a local feed store. It wouldn’t have occured to me to buy dog food except I drove past and saw a sign advertising Iams for $25. I went in with my coupon and got this 40lb bag of high quality dog food for $2.13.
Thank you for stopping by my blog! I am a stay at home mom of one 19 month old and am expecting #2 in May. This blog is written for the millions of moms (and non-moms) out there that want to learn how to seriously stretch a dollar. By sticking to a budget and making every penny count we are able to enjoy life and spend money on the things that are really important to us. As the blog name indicates- we are committed to a debt free lifestyle and we are slowly getting there- one coupon at a time!
We live in the land of no doubles and no CVS (Northern California)- where the cost of living is high and getting great deals is even more of a challenge. If I can do it anyone can do it!
