Money Saving Mom

FARM FRESH…
As you may remember, Wednesday is double dollar day at Farm Fresh.  Well they were also having a deal if you spend $30 on participating products, you get $15 off your next purchase!  IMG_1982Here’s a run down on the deals I got:

Transaction 1:

Item Reg. Price Sale Price Coupon Sale & Coupon
Gold Medal Flour $2.79 $1.79 $0.50 $0.79
Betty Crocker Frosting $2.00 $1.69 $0.50 $0.69
Kleenex $1.33 $1.00 $0.50/3 $2.00/3
Progresso Chicken Broth $2.69 $1.69 $0.50 $0.69
Scott Paper Towels $1.99 $1.00 $1.00/4 $4.00/8
Pillsbury Toaster Strudel $2.79 $2.50 $1.00 $0.50
Klondike Bars $3.69 $2.50 $1.00 $0.50
Yoplait Yo-Plus $2.99 $2.50 $1.00 $1.00/2
Yoplait Delights $3.29 $2.50 $1.00 $1.00/2

Total of Transaction 1 before sales & coupons = $46.43
Total of Transaction 1 after sales, coupons, tax & “green bags” ($0.05 off for bringing  in your own bag) –> $11.60, plus $15 printed out for my next transaction!

Transaction 2:

Item Reg. Price Sale Price Coupon Sale & Coupon
Fiber One Toaster Pastry* $2.39 $1.50 $0.75 FREE
Scott Paper Towels $1.99 $1.00 $1.00/4 $3.00/4**
Pillsbury Toaster Strudel $2.79 $2.50 $1.00 $0.50
Klondike Bars $3.69 $2.50 $1.00 $0.50
Huggies Big Pack $24.99 $19.99 $1.00 $17.99
Lindsay Olives $1.39 $1.39 $1.00/2 $1.56/4
Milk $2.48 $2.48 $0.50 $1.98**

*Forgot to take a picture of this
**Coupon didn’t double, but I didn’t notice until later and didn’t think it was enough to hassle over :)

Total of Transaction 2 before sales & coupons = $49.86
Total of Transaction 2 after sales, coupons, $15 Catalina from T1, tax & “green bags” –> $11.82, and the $15 didn’t print out, so I went to Customer Service and they  just credited my card the $15 which is way better than having Farm Fresh money!

So total of the day before sales & coupons = $96.29
Total after everything (including the $15 credit) = $8.42!  I mean get real!  That’s a savings of $87.87 or 91%!!

TARGET DEALS…
Right now at Target, all the Halloween candy is 75% off, making everything SUPER cheap!  If you think you need more candy, then head over for this great deal (it might even go cheaper the longer you wait).  I know I said we only had 3 trick-or-treaters and a ton of left over candy, but it was all chocolate stuff and Luke really likes the fruity kinds (so I got him a present!).  I thought I could use these chocolates for cookie baking since Thanksgiving/Christmas is coming up fast!IMG_1985 Here’s a run down on the deals I got:

  • Sour Patch/Swedish Fish - $6.99 –> $1.74
  • Hot Tamales/Mike & Ike - $6.99 –> $1.74
  • Starburst/Skittles - $6.99/ea –> $1.74 x 2 = $3.48
  • Hershey’s Kisses - $6.99/ea –> $1.74 x 2 = $3.48
  • Reese’s - $4.79/ea –> $1.19 x 2 = $2.38
  • M&M’s - $2.99/ea –> $0.74 x 8 = $5.92

Original total = $75.44
Total after coupons & sale = $14.74!
Wow, now that’s a STEAL…That’s a savings of $60.70 or 80%!!  I also noticed that I missed a Starburst/Skittles coupon where I could’ve saved $2 more.  So make sure you stock up on your Target Qs before heading over for your deals!

I'll take care of Luker 2 and you go shop for the great deals! Got me beat by a long shot! If you keep saving so much money, then you can get back to Texas sooner!!!
