Jan 4~ Coupon Class/Workshop this week!

 Happy New Year! Does anyone have a New Years Resolution to save money? Cut spending? Learn how to use Coupons? If you live in the Sacramento Area, We are going to be having a coupon class/workshop this week! Thursday January 6 at 6pm! I will be going over the basics of how to get started using coupons, how to start making a stockpile, how to save money and cut your spending, getting more food and household products for less money (higher quality too!) and much more! There will be people there to answer questions and hands on help is available too! 

The Class will be held at Family Community Church
6331 Watt Ave.
North Highlands, CA 95660

The class time is 6pm-6:45pm in the Fellowship Hall. Please enter in the side doors.
Family Community Church has an event that is starting at 7pm, so we will need to be finished before that. (You are welcome to stay though!)

If you have any questions, or want to let me know that you are coming (helps us set up!)
email me at Diana@pantryoverflow.com
If you are on my email list, I will be sending an email out with this information as well.

Jan 3~Safeway Catalina Promotions



When I was at Safeway last week, I receive a lot of Catalina coupons! With their new Just 4 You program I get some really good coupons. I also got these 3 Catalina advertisements. They all run until Jan. 23, so we should be expecting some good sales!
Catalina are these extra coupons or ads that come out as well as your receipt after your purchase. When there are different promotions going on by a manufacutrer, you will get a catalina coupon with a dollar amount that is good on your next purchase. it is just like cash! Your next purchase does NOT have to be another day or time. You can buy your items that will give you your catalina, then do another transaction right after and  use your catalina to pay for that order. Just tell the cashier you have separate transactions.  Here is the list of Catalinas, and how to arrange your transactions..

Nature Valley Granola Bars OR Fiber One Bars
Buy 3- Get $1.50
Buy 4-Get $2.50
Buy 5 or more-Get $3.50
**If you are printing the Nature valley Coupons to use this week-print the Fiber One Coupons too because I am sure we will see a sale on these before the promo is over!

These are great deals to stock up your pantry for snacks for your kids, or to donate to your local church for their kids classes!

Here is an example of how I am going to do this transaction;

Transaction #1
