Saved 61% on Meat at Albertsons!!!

It's week two of my war on the grocery stores! Have you joined my army? I am determined to save money on real food, healthy food for my family. That can be tricky when there are rarely coupons for meat and produce. That's why you should definitely take advantage of coupons that help you save on your overall purchase and apply them to transactions that include meat/produce at good prices...hence today's trip...

I spent $34.08, saved $52.77, a 61% savings!!! Here's what I got and how:

  • Garbage bags- $4.79 (Not a great price, but we desperately needed them. I'll have to stockpile these soon.)

  • 10 Oscar Mayer 1lb shaved lunchmeat $2.99
    Use 5 $1/2 Oscar Mayer shaved lunchmeat from SS 5/15, plus get $10 instant savings for buying 10
  • 9 pounds Albertsons Chicken Drumsticks, Thighs or Whole Legs, or Whole Fryers- $1.00/lb (no coupon needed)
  • 6 Boxes of Selected General Mills Cereal $1.88
    4 Bisquick Shake n’ Pour $0.75 (no coupon)
    Use 3 $1.00/2 – General Mills Cereal, Basic 4, Cheerios, Chex, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Cocoa Puffs, or Cookie Crisp – (
    Final cost for all ten items after $5 instant savings : $11.28
  • Used one "Double the Value" coupon- These came in your mailbox in a "savings booklet" about a week ago. As long as you're using at least one coupon that is $1 or more in value, this is essentially like using a $1 off your order coupon. It's just that simple. Put it in with the rest of your coupons. There is no need to tell the cashier which coupon to use this on. Just make sure there is a $1 coupon in your stack to maximize the savings.
  • Used one $5/$25 order that I received for signing up for the Albertsons email savings program. (Get the link at You can receive up to 5 with referrals!)
Total before Club Card and coupons: $86.85 which still would've been a good deal,
paid just $34.08 after all was said and done!!!!!

Oh! And did I mention that each and every one of my Cheerios boxes had a $1.50/1 Pampers coupon on the box, and they don't expire for almost a year!!!

What are you waiting for? Go get some cheap groceries!!
