We came home from vacation last week to find ourselves knee deep in beans, zucchinis and cherry tomatoes, so we didn’t actually need to many groceries.

But I’m pretty excited about the Albertsons Round Up on the horizon, I already placed an order for 2 things, and now I’m just waiting to get the ad in my hand to see what else will be a killer deal.  We’ll see.

Here is what I picked up this week.

Albertsons $2.50

Plain yogurt for Zucchini Brownies.

Albertsons $1.99

Fresh dill for Dilly Pickles.

Albertsons $ 3.13

Total Spent This Week $7.62
Total Spent This Year $851.47
Total Spent This Year on Garden Seeds/Supplies $496.58
Total “Seed Money” donations received $23.00

So there you have it, a pretty boring week {grocery shopping wise} indeed.

How are you doing on your grocery budget lately?  Are you a gardener?

Is you garden your supermarket?

The Albertsons Double Coupon Report – What Did Mavis Buy?

free crest toothpaste

If you are an Albertsons Double Coupon Shopper, you may be interested in the shopping trip I did this morning.

And hey, even if you’re not an Albertsons shopper, you still might want to take a look to see how I saved a bunch on groceries today.  All those funny little coupons sure do add up when you combined them with a good sale.

I was patiently waiting my turn in the check out line this morning as a lady with a huge order was finishing up.  I noticed she was buying several cases of yogurt and quietly asked her what she was going to do with all of it.  She was like, Well, I have a bunch of coupons and I am getting the yogurt for $1 per 4-pack, and then a FREE milk catalina is going to pop out.  So I’ll be getting 3 packs of yogurt and a gallon of milk for like 3 bucks.  Not bad ehh?  

But then, something happened.

The free milk catalina didn’t spit out.

Yada, yada, yada, she had to get the free milk at the same time she was buying her yogurt.  There was no magical catalina and most importantly no 2 week window to use the coupon for milk.  She had to take all the milk right then and there.

As she was standing there trying to figure out what the heck to do, I quickly offered her a $10 Starbucks Card I had in my wallet that I scored for free from Swagbucks.

Oh Happy Day.

Talk about being in the right place at the right time.

Here is what else I picked up at Albertsons this morning.

Crest Toothpaste – $1.49

Mavis Goes to Albertsons – iTunes Gift Card Promo Idea

Mavis Albertsons shopping trip

Have you heard about the buy $100 of partcipating gift cards and get a $20 Albertsons store coupon deal?

I purchased $100  in iTune gift cards {which I would have bought over the next few months anyway} and then used the $20 Albertsons Store coupon to stock up on a few groceries.

I had 2 transactions.

I purchased the gift cards first, and when I spent $100 on the gift cards I received 2,000 Albertsons Preferred Savings Points.  Which in turn bumped my Preferred points to over 5,000 points which triggered a $5 Albertsons store coupon at the bottom of my receipt.  Yee-Haw!

So, in a nut shell, if you have the extra funds available, now would be a great time to snag a few gift cards and get a bag of groceries for next to nothing.  Just remember to buy the gift cards before you buy the groceries.

Here is how I used the $20 coupon to my advantage.

3 gallons Albertsons 2% Milk $2.59 each
1 Everyday Essentials Bacon $3.50
2 Trop50 Orange Juice $2.00 each
11lbs {aprox.} Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts $23.62
Used $1/1 Everyday Essentials coupon {Albertsons Coupon booklet}
Used $20/1 Albertsons Store coupon {from gift card deal}
Used {2} $5 off your next shopping trip Abertsons Preferred Rewards Savings coupons
Final Price: $7.89 oop

 *Remember, most stores will not let you use the store coupon on liquid dairy products

iTunes, Sears, Lowe’s, Cabela’s, Applebees, Kohl’s, Bass Pro Shops, JCPenney gift cards are included in this promo.

Will YOU be buying any gift cards this time around to get the $20 coupon?
