March 3rd deals...


I bought 35 boxes of fruit snacks this morning at Albertson's. They are on sale for $ 1.00 a box. Then I used 7 different internet printable coupons and did 7 seperate trnsactions. Plus for every 5 you bought, you received at $ 3.50 catalina! Super cheap fruit snacks!

1st transaction looked like this:
Bought 5 boxes= $ 5.00
Used 2 .50 coupons
New total/OOP= $ 4.00
Recieved $ 3.50 catalina good on my next purchace)

2nd transaction:
bought 5 more boxes= $ 5.00
- 2 .50 internet coupons
New total = $ 4.00
- $ 3.50 catalina from trans # 1
New total/OOP= .50

(and on and on for as many transactions as you would like to do. I did 3 at a time, took my stuff to the car and repeated. I ran out of coupons, so my average per box is slightly higher than the .10 a box, but I wanted to stock up, so it was fine that I didn't have any more coupons to use towards the end.)

Total Spent= $ 5.50 (after factoring in last $ 3.50 cat received)averaged out to be about .16 a box
Total savings= $ 94.48
