Weekly Spending Summary (4/6-4/12)

Wednesday, April 16th, 2014

Some of you have wondered where I get my printable coupons. Here are the main coupon sites that I use: Coupons.com, Coupon Network, Smart Source, Red Plum, Ibotta, Hopster, Checkout 51 and Saving Star.  Manufacturer websites and Facebook pages are another great source.

Favorite buys:

  • Finish detergent $1.00/box
  • Free Right Guard deodorant
  • $0.05 Liberte organic yogurt
  • $0.78/lb. Hatfield ham steaks
  • Boneless, skinless chicken thighs for $1.39/lb.

Total Spent: $89.84
Total Saved with Coupons: $30.15
Total Saved with Sales: $30.96
Total Saved: $61.11

CVS: $0 (gift card)
Saved with Coupons: $5.00
Saved with Sales: $3.38

 

I used a gift card that we earned through our credit card rewards program to pay for this purchase of $1.06.  Unfortunately, the CVS that I went to was out of stock on the other things that I wanted so I ended up just getting these deodorants that were free after coupons/sales.

Bought:

  • 2 Right Guard deodorants $3.00 each

Coupons Used:

  • Two $2.00 Right Guard coupons from Sunday newspaper coupon inserts
  • $1.00 in Extra Bucks (CVS coupon that print at register for purchasing specific items)

Got Back:

  • $2.00 in Extra Bucks coupon for purchasing the Right Guard (can be used on next purchase of any item)

Rite Aid: $5.30
Saved with Coupons: $7.35
Saved with Sales: $14.07

As I’ve said before, I don’t typically buy baby food because by the time our children start to eat, they can usually eat table food, mashed.  And besides, it cheaper to make your own baby food anyway.  But when I can get it free like I did this week, I’ll take it.  I find these little sealed containers so handy for when we are traveling or away from home.

The Anacin was a $1.01 moneymaker and the Finish detergent is about $1 a box after the mail-in rebate (and that includes the cost of the stamp!).

Bought:

  • 2 Gerber baby foods $0
    (bought with rain check and they were free after UPRewards during that promotion)
  • 2 Finish detergents $6.49 total (on sale buy one, get one free)
  • Anacin $4.99

Coupons Used:

  • $2.00 Anacin printable coupon
  • $5.00 in UPRewards (Rite Aid coupon that print at register for purchasing specific items)

Got Back:

  • $4.00 UPRewards coupons for purchasing the Anacin (can be used on next purchase of any item)
  • $4.99 via a Finish mail in rebate from the Sunday newspaper coupon inserts

Giant: $1.11
Saved with Coupons: $1.80
Saved with Sales: $0.73

Don’t you love my huge Giant purchase this week?   I really wasn’t planning to go at all but then my husband unknowingly took the last of the homemade yogurt in his lunch and so I had no yogurt to use as starter for my next batch.  Unfortunately I didn’t find this out until I was in the middle of making it, so I had to make a quick run to the store for some unflavored yogurt which is what the Dannon was for.  I was happy that I had a Checkout 51 yogurt offer to help cut my cost and I ended up paying just $0.19 for it.

The Plum Organics was free and the Liberte yogurt was only $0.05 after coupons/Saving Star.

Bought:

  • Plum Organics baby food pouch $1.00
  • Dannon plain yogurt $0.69
  • Liberte yogurt $1.25

Coupons Used:

  • $0.50 Plum Organics printable coupon (doubled to $1.00)
  • $0.40 Liberte printable coupon (doubled to $0.80)

Got Back:

  • $0.50 via Checkout 51 for purchasing yogurt (the offer was forany yogurt!)
  • $0.40 via Saving Star for purchasing the Liberte yogurt

Weis: $2.18
Saved with Coupons: $16.00
Saved with Sales: $12.78

We love these Hatfield ham steaks- they are so flavorful, tender and delicious!  So I was really excited to get them for just $0.39 a piece or $0.78/lb.  We’ve already enjoyed some in a green bean/potato/ham dish as well as on salad.

Bought:

  • 8 Hatfield Ham Steaks $2.39 each

Coupons Used:

  • Eight $2.00 Hatfield printable coupons

Aldi: $6.45

Headed to Aldi to take advantage of their special on carrots and sweet potatoes and grabbed some sour cream and red potatoes while I was there.  Speaking of sour cream, I’m quite ready to find a good deal on it again!  Usually I can get it for less than $1.00 a container and I stock up but it’s been quite a while since there has been any decent deal on it.

Bought:

  • Sweet potatoes 3 lb. $1.19
  • Red potatoes 5 lb. $2.99
  • 2 Baby Carrots $0.49 each
  • Sour Cream $1.29

Misc.: $74.80

$20 of this was for money to buy milk for $2/gal. from a local farm.  The other $54.80 was for 40 lb. of boneless, skinless chicken thighs that I got at a local stores meat sale for just $1.37 lb.  I canned some of it, froze some raw and froze some cooked and chopped.  I’m hoping that I’ll be all set on meat for several months now since I just bought ground beef this month too!

I used a gift card that we earned through our credit card rewards program to pay for this purchase of $1.47.

The toothpaste was free, the Nexcare a moneymaker of $0.50, the Dawn cost $0.50 and the nuts were just a decent price.  I was very happy to get the medical tape as we were needing some.  I’m amazed how often something unusual like that that we need just “happens” to be on sale about the time we need it!

I got some wonderful deals this week even though I didn’t do any of the gas deals.  There were some decent gas deal that I could have done but I didn’t really need any of the products and just decided to pass them up this time.

The Ragu was $0.75 each, the Eight O’Clock coffee was just $1.69, the ketchup was $1.49, the Fisher Boy fish stick were free and the Farmland bacon only $1.24 each!  I was super excited to get bacon for such a great price.  We’ve already enjoyed some in homemade Egg McMuffin sandwiches using some of the Thomas English Muffins that I got several weeks ago for incredibly cheap.  Such a delicious, easy meal!

I also was happy to get more coffee before summer hits.  This will likely be the last good deal I’ll be able to get on it until fall or early winter.  And while we don’t go through coffee as fast in the summer as we do in the cold months, we still do use it- especially for homemade iced coffee. (You’ll find a link to the recipe below where I talk about it and the free coffee that I got!)

Bought:

  • 2 Ragu pasta sauce $1.25 each
  • 4 Eight O’Clock coffee $2.69 each (on sale buy one, get one free)
  • Nature’s Promise organic ketchup $1.99
  • 2 Fisher Boy Fish Sticks $0.99 each
  • 4 Farmland Bacon $2.24 each (on sale buy one, get one free)

Coupons Used:

  • $1/2 Ragu coupon from Sunday newspaper coupon inserts
  • Two $2/2 Eight O’clock printable coupon
  • $0.50 Nature’s Promise coupon from in-store coupon machine
  • Two $1.00 Fisher Boy printable coupons
  • Four $1.00 Farmland printable coupons

Aldi: $16.54

Stopped by Aldi for a few of my “regular” things as well as a few things that I don’t normally purchase like canned Great Northern Beans.  We were having guests for dinner the one evening and while I like to have people over, I always get hung up on what to serve.  There were lots of things that I could have made using ingredients that I had on hand but for some reason my Creamy White Chili just felt like the thing to make.  It’s delicious and so easy to throw together.  And so I decided to go ahead and get the beans and sour cream to make that.  Silly?  Maybe.  But sometimes it’s worth spending a tad more just to alleviate the stress!

Bought:

  • Sweet Potatoes 3lb. $1.79
  • 2 Sour Cream $1.29 each
  • Coffee Filters $1.19
  • Cinnamon $0.99
  • Spinach $1.79
  • Heavy Whipping Cream $1.99
  • Corn Chips $0.89
  • Napkins $1.49
  • Brown Sugar $1.19
  • 4 Great Northern Beans $0.59 each

Misc.: $38.75

  • $20.00 of this was for grocery cash.  I’ll use this to purchase produce at our local farmer’s market as well as eggs from a local farm.

  • $18.75 of this was for 15 lbs. of ground beef that we bought from my in-laws.  My dad-in-law works for a farmer and they had a cow go down that needed to be butchered.  His boss told him that he could have it for the cost of butchering it and they generously allowed us to enjoy some of at that price too- just $1.25/lb.!  And that other little pack of meat that you see?  It’s some bologna that they got made as well.  My mom-in-law just threw that in as a little bonus!I’m going to use my trick of mixing ground turkey with the ground beef to make it last longer, since I can get ground turkey for much less than I can typically find ground beef.

  • This Dunkin’ Donuts coffee was totally free!  Yes, you read right.  I was so excited!  I won a giveaway from my favorite couponing blog, For the Mommas and this was part of it.  Even better than the coffee was the $250 Visa gift card that was part of the giveaway package as well.  I’m serious, I nearly fell off my chair when I read the email saying that I had won that!  Such a fun surprise!  And the coffee is really good too.   I’ve been enjoying it in my homemade iced coffee.
