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

Jan 2~ Coupon Inserts, and Target Coupons

  I don’t have the time today, it is Sunday, and I go to church-and it is my son’s birthday—But I wanted to let everyone know that there are some GREAT coupons in todays paper that will make it possible to stock up on a lot of items. If it is possible, I would recommend buying more copies than usual(the $.50 off Yakisoba coupon is back!) I had been kind of cutting back, but I am buying at least 10 today. Also, there are some good coupons on Target.com to print also. The Weight Watchers, Kraft Dressing, and Quaker Oatmeal, Special K, Planters, and Kashi Coupons will work out to some really great deals!

Dec 28~Stockpiling Wisdom-Not Hoarding..

  I was talking with a friend about what we were going to do with some expiring coupons, and how much of some things to buy without it being considered ‘hoarding’.
First of all-
Why should I be concerned about what other people think of my coupon usage and the amount of food I have in my home (which with all my kids what some people consider a lot, doesn’t seem to last so long!)- and
We were talking about cake mixes and frosting, and how much we should buy when we can get them for $.38 each. Since some of us got the Giant Cupcake and Donut pans, cakes are the fun thing, so here is how I figured out how many to buy..
*some of you may think this is extreme…
I am going to buy 30. Does that seem excessive? Well here is how I came up with 30.
9-one for each family member’s birthday
7-one for each kid if they bring cupcakes to a class, party, etc
12-one per month for a family dessert
2-any holidays or events I may need an easy dessert.
=$11.40 for cakes, and $11.40 for frostings

If I ran out and bought cake mix when I needed it and they weren’t on sale or I bought the cake mix for $.99 and the frosting for $1.29 which is pretty good anyways-
=$29.70 for the cake, and $38.70 for frosting

I am saving $45.60 PLUS a whole bunch of time by buying them ahead of time. The expiration dates are for September 2011 anyways!

Total Spent at Raley’s-$22.86, and that includes toilet paper, diapers, wipes, milk , chips, hair products,etc!!!

If you don’t have the same coupons, then you can mix and match to come up with your own scenarios. Really, the free chips is not worth it to me, but since I need diapers, wipes and toilet paper I feel better spending some money out of pocket and getting the other stuff with the Catalina.

If you come up with a better or different scenario, share it with us! I know not everyone needs diapers and wipes!

Update~ I did some shopping for a friend too, and here is what I ended up with at Raleys
Total Value~$216.86

I ended up doing the Proctor and Gamble Catalina deal 2 times~ I got 4 Pantene, 1 Tide, 1 Bounce, and 1 Charmin TP, and the free chips.
Then with the Catalina I bought the Star Olive Oil and got the Star Balsamic Vinegar Free with the e-coupon-I printed the $2 off from Allyou.com, more hummus, 3 cans of organic beans, 2 Bags of Doritos, and the Free bag of Lays.

It was fun, but it was so crowded and I am done shopping for the year!!!
