I’ve been accused of being a “teaser” because of my last post. Wha wha what? I can’t believe it!
So, how did I get those deals? Here’s the breakdown:
Let’s start with the Fryin’ Magic (or in my case Bakin’ Miracle):
This was on sale this week at Meijer for 1/2 off, making it $1.10 = $3.30 for 3.
On Meijer Meal box, there was a coupon for a $1 off 3 boxes of this item, which brought the total down to $2.30.
Also, attached to each box was a Manufacturer’s peelie coupon for $0.75 off each box.
Are you following?
That brings the total for those 3 boxes down to 5 cents!
Nivea Lip Care:
Right now these are on a price drop at Meijer for $0.99.
I had a $1 off coupon from my October All You Magazine for Nivea Lip Care, which made this item FREE!
There are also several of these $1 off coupons found online and in your weekly newspaper inserts.
Meijer frozen vegetables are $0.99.
On Meijer Meal Box, you can print a coupon for 50 cents off each bag, making them $0.49 each!
You can print as many of these coupons as you want, so we are totally stocked up on frozen veggies!
These tubs are on sale this week at Meijer for $1.33 each.
On Meijer Meal Box there is a coupon for $1 off 3 tubs, since I bought 6, this brings my total down to $5.98.
Are you ready, because here comes the best part…
For every 2 you buy, you get back a $2 Catalina, so I got $6 back in Catalinas!
Bringing the total down to FREE + I made 2 cents:)
Oh, and if you don’t know what a Catalina is, it’s the coupons that print from the machine when you check out, they are good for money off your next purchase.
I just realized that with my math and calculations, that brings my total to 51 cents, not 46 cents…so I’m not sure where I miscalculated! Oh well. Anyway. How did I know about all these deals? Did I figure them out myself? Hell. No. There is a local blog I visit that does all the match ups (deals) for the stores in my area each week! I even went to a coupon class they hosted on Monday night!
I’m sure I’m going to get comments from people saying “Boo, there’s no Meijer where I live!” Don’t panic! Go to your local store’s website, and look there for store coupons. Store coupons can be paired with a manufacturer’s coupon, and that’s how you get the best deals! Also, look for a blogger in your local area who does the match ups each week. Couponing is very popular, so there’s bound to be someone!
