My Albies Trip 11/08

We got doublers yesterday, so that means I headed out late last night to try to scoop up the week's deals. I did three sets of the General Mills promo and then a 4th transaction to use a set of doublers. They were out of the Danimals drinks and Crush Cups, (they said they would have more coming in on Tuesday) so I will have to go back in a couple of days. They were also out of the Cinnabon bars and Wholly Guacamole. :( Sad! They also said they would not be getting any more of the Wholly Guacamole until Wednesday (after the sale) so that means no free guacamole for me. :( Luckily, I got some avacados to make my own. Lol. The items above should have cost me $173.04. I only paid $33.15, PLUS I still have $10 in catalinas to use on a future visit! I saved $139.89, or $81%!! I also earned $.15 off per gallon of gas, which I filled up after shopping and saved a total of $2.32 on a full tank. :)

Here are my four transactions broken down for you:

2 boxes Cheerios
2 boxes Cocoa Puffs
2 boxes Cinnamon Toast Crunch
2 boxes of Trix Swirls
2 Cottenelle Flushable Wipes
6 Viva big roll paper towels

Total for promo: $30.96

I used 4-$1/2 General Mills cereal, 2-$1/1 Cottenelle IP HERE, 6-$.40/1 Viva (SS 10/11 or there is a $.40/1 printable HERE or HERE, but I did not do the printable), and 3 doublers, making my OOP $19.56, plus I then received $15 in OYNSO (catalinas good toward your next purchase)!

6 Betty Crocker frosting tubs
6 Betty Crocker cookie pouches
1 - 5lb Gold Medal Flour
2 Yoplait Delights
1 Shedd's Country Crock spread

Total for promo: $30.44

I used 6-$.50/1 BC frosting (GM 10/4 or there is an IP HERE), 6-$.40/1 (GM 10/4 or IP HERE and HERE), 1-$.55/1 Shedd's (I got this from a baggie full of coupons I found at the Walart portrait studio), 1-$.50/1 Gold Medal flour (HERE), 2-$1/1 Yoplait Delights (GM 10/4 or SS 11/8 or IP HERE), and three doublers, making my OOP $4.44, PLUS I received another $15 in OYNSO.

2 Betty Crocker Scalloped potatoes
6 Lipton/Knorr rice sides
8 Green Giant veggies
3 Betty Crocker cake mixes
4 Pillsubry Toaster Strudels

Total for promo: $30.57

I used 4-$1/1 Pillsbury Strudels IP HERE, 1-$.40/1 BC potatoes IP HERE and HERE, 1-$.50/1 BC Potatoes (I received this in a free sample I received last week), 2-$1/3 Lipton/Knorr IP (HERE, and three doublers, making my OOP 6.17, plus I received yet another $15 in catalinas.

2 Soda Pop toppings ($2.99/ea)
2 Propel Fitness Waters ($.50/ea)
1 Danimals Crush Cups ($1.50/ea)
4 Michellina's Budget entrees ($.50/ea)
2 Avacados
1-5lb bag of russet potatoes

Total before coupons: $14.75

I used the in-ad coupon making the avacados $.88/ea, 2-$1/1 Soda Pop Topper (exp. yesterday), 1-$1/1 Danimals (SS 11/1) and three doublers, plus one of my $5 OYNSO from the previous transaction, making my OOP $2.98! I also still have $10 left in OYNSO from the last transaction.

Not too bad! I only spent $33.15, but I am not counting the full amount towards my weekly budget, as I purchased the cookie and cake mixes to use as gifts (like FabulesslyFrugal mentioned HERE) for Xmas.
