This food bank booty was collected in a few days from 4 different area stores, Kmart, Fred Meyer and Albertsons. The receipt scans suck but if you click on it you will be able to see the transactions clearly.
At Kmart: 3 boxes of Post Raisin Bran Cereal regularly priced at $3.99 per box, on sale for $2.00 per box.
Pre-coupon total = $6.00
Minus:$2.00 off any one printable manufacturers coupon x 3
Coupon total = $6.00
Total cash spent = $0.00
At Fred Meyer: 5 cans of Bumble Bee Tuna, regularly priced at .59 cents per can.
Pre coupon total = $2.95
Minus: Fred Meyer store coupon for 4 cans for $1.00, coupon value = $1.36
$1.00/5 printable manufacturers coupon
Coupon total = $2.36
Money spent = .59 cents
Albertsons: (2 trips) 5 boxes of Quaker Instant Oatmeal, 4 boxes of Quaker Granola Bars and 1 box of Quaker Oatmeal Pancake Mix. (I kept 2 boxes of the Instant Oatmeal and 1 box of the granola bars, but the remaining items were donated to the food bank.)
Pre coupon total = $38.90
$1.00 off any Quaker Instant Oatmeal Manufacturers coupons x 5 = $5.00
$1.00/2 Quaker Granola Bars manufacturers coupons x 2 = $2.00
$1.00 off Quaker Oatmeal Pancake Mix x 1 = $1.00
Albertsons "Twice the Value" store coupons @ $1.00 each x2 = $2.00
Total coupons = $10.00
Subtotal = $28.90
Albertsons Preferred Shopper Savings of $28.90
Total money spent = $0.00
So, by combining manufacturers coupons with sale items and store savings, I got 8 boxes of cereal, 4 boxes of granola bars, 5 cans of tuna and 1 box of pancake mix for what it costs to buy 1 can of tuna at regular price! And, I was able to donate $42.16 retail value worth of food to The Second Harvest Food Bank, something I am feeling really good about :)
