Frugal Friday With Marsha 6/7/13

I hope this post finds that all have had a good week and heading into a good weekend.

This week I will talk about the sale at our Dillon's (Kroger) store.  It's a couponers dream sale.
For every 5 General Mills products you buy you get back a $5 catalina store coupon to be used on your next shopping trip.
Store coupon means that we can use them even if we have a manufacturer's coupon for every item in our cart.  It also means that the sales tax is taken off for that $5 too!!

I could easily go absolutely crazy with this one, stock up on Totino's pizza, fruit snacks, salad mix, cereal, cake mixes and more, just to get the $5 coupons to pay for milk, meat, eggs, cheese, etc.

I'm not planning on going overboard.
I've made 2 trips.
I didn't take a picture of my first trip but bought:
6- Totino's pizzas which were $1 each after coupons
4-Suddenly Salad, also $1 each after coupons ---Then I got $10 back for buying the 10.
I also bought 5 packages of Oscar Mayar Bologna on sale for $1 each and rec'd back a $4 manufacturer's catalina.
Then, I bought a hanging plant because it was so pretty and on Manager's Special for $3.99.

I spent $20.80 on this trip and rec'd back $14 total in catalinas

Here is what I bought on the next trip using more coupons and the $14 from the first trip:
Yes, 5 more bologna's.  They are filling the deep freeze now, but with lots of big family get togethers over the summer, we will use these up.  In fact, I'm still thinking of getting 5 more.

I spent $2.12 for what is in this photo plus got back $9 to use on my next shopping trip.
I will be making that trip this morning  :)

What do you have to share this week?

Squidoo Hopping--Thanks!

Thank you for the kind words and encouragement in last week's blog hop post.
I will continue to post each week.  I really enjoy hopping to the lenses and blog posts that are shared each week.

Busy days and hurried lifestyle, this is me for some time now.  I hope to learn how to relax!  Or, how to get it all done without stressing.

Please share your choice of 1 or 2 of your lenses this week, as well as any blog posts you may have written pertaining to squidoo.

This week I'm going to share my newest garden lens since I did add photos to it.  I'm also going to share my giant sunflower lens since today I am working to transplant them into a neat row today.

Thanks again!
