Shopping in San Luis for $35!!

For all my friends in San Luis, Pismo, and surrounding cities, did you know that Scolari’s doubles coupons!?! Here’s my first coupon match-up for this store, but hurry, these deals are only good through tomorrow! I will try and post more soon.

Disclaimer: The plan I lay out at the bottom is assuming you have zero stockpile- an empty pantry. This plan is intended to get you fed while building your stock. As you accumulate items at stock-up prices, your Out Of Pocket will fall since you no longer need to purchase things at full price. If, however, you have a small stock, you may be able to eliminate some items. Therefore, I have listed whether I think things are good prices or not. Enjoy!

Scolari’s Deals (Good thru 11/16)

  • Post Cereals (includes Honeycomb, Fruity Pebbles, or Cocoa Pebbles)

Sale Price 2/$4

Use $1/2 Post Cereals printable coupon fm coupons.com, doubles to $2

Total $2 for 2 boxes of cereal (stock up price)

  • Digiorno Pizza (looks like these are the pizza/side combos)

Sale Price $6.49

Use $1.25/1 coupon fm RP 10/16

Total $5.25 (decent price)

  • Bar-S Bologna

Buy 2, use $0.75/2 fm RP 10/23, doubles to $1.50 off/2

Total $1.68 for 2 (or $0.84/ea which is a stock up price)

  • Mountain High Yogurt, 32 oz

Sale price $2.49

Use $0.50/1 fm SS 10/23, doubles to $1

Total $1.50 each (stock up price)

  • Fuji Apples- $0.99/lb (good price)
  • Hass Avocados- 2/$0.88 (stock up price)
  • Red Potatoes- $0.79/lb (poor price but oh so good!)
  • Del Monte Canned Vegetables- $0.89/ea
  • Bay View Farms Pan Bread- $1.88 (good price)
  • Assorted Pork Chops $1.97/lb (good price)

Here’s what I would buy...

4 boxes of cereal (uses 2 Q’s which is what you can usually print w/1 computer)- $4

2 loaves bread- $3.76

4 packs bologna- $3.36

2 tubs yogurt- $3

4 lbs of Fuji Apples- $4

3 lbs of Pork Chops- $6

4 cans of veggies- $3.56

2.5 lbs of Red Potatoes- $1.98

1 Digiorno Pizza- $5.25 (this is pricey, but a nice treat if you are trying to avoid eating out)

Total OOP: $34.91 plus tax

Here’s what I would make with that...

Breakfasts: Cereal

Lunches: Bologna sandwiches with avocado (sounds gross but it’s yummy and has “good fats” instead of the kind in mayo), serve with Fuji Apples (reserve 5)

Snacks: Yogurt (mix with honey or sugar to sweeten and sprinkle with cereal for a crunch!)

Dinners: Pork Chops with Homemade Applesauce (take 5 reserved apples, peel and chop, throw in crockpot with generous sprinkle of cinnamon, cook on low 3 hours till soft, cool a bit and puree in blender), mashed red potatoes, and canned veggies

Digiorno for a treat!

This should get you through at least 4-5 days, plus you’ve started a stockpile! If you can’t afford $35, I’d cut the Digiorno first. Remember, you can freeze lunch meat, bread, and yogurt!

Please let me know if you have any troubles doubling coupons! And, as always, I recommend printing and taking the store's coupon policy to be sure you get what they promise. ;) Happy Shopping!
