    Sara Lee Outlet

    On the advice of my friend Theresa, I decided to check out the Sara Lee Outlet in Green Bay.  There was a coupon in Sunday’s paper for buy one white or wheat loaf, get one free.  The cheapest price I can usually find for Sara Lee bread is $1.88.  At the outlet store, it’s $0.99 (so is EarthGrains!).  The hamburger/hotdog buns are only $0.75.  We love Sara Lee bread, so I think this will be my official bread store from now on.  Since it freezes so well, I can probably get away with only stopping once a month.  This week they also have a special; extra 15% off if you use a reusable shopping bag (which I did).  I bought 2 breads, 2 hamburger buns and bread crumbs for just $2.96.  Considering the bread alone would normally cost me $3.76, that is one sweet deal.

    Copps Double Double Days, 4/20

    Yes, it’s true!  Copps is allowing you to double 10 coupons per $25 order again.  Double coupon day must be doing well for them.  That’s the third time in recent months that Copps has done this.  I hope they keep it up!!  Here are my planned deals for the week…

    • GM Cereal Deal: Buy 6 boxes at regular price, get $10 off at checkout plus coupons for free milk & eggs.  Boxes average $3.75 each x6 = $22.50 – $10 = $12.50 – doubled IP coupons from coupons.com (various) = as low as 6/$3.50 or $0.58 per box.  VERY good deal.  Final price depends on which cereals and which coupons you choose.
    • Green Giant canned veggies, $0.48 each (limit 4)
    • Kemp’s Milk, 2/$5 – $1 MC in ad (doubled) = 2/$3
    • Del Monte fruit chillers, $2.19 – $1 MC (doubled) = 0.19
    • Crystal Farms cheese slices, 2/$4 = $1 off 2 MC printed in previous ad (doubled) = 2/$2
    • Manwich, $1 each – $1 off 2 MC (may not double?) = 2 for FREE or 2$1
    • Roundy’s fruit snacks, $1
    • Roundy’s whipping cream, $1

    New Page

    Hi Everyone!

    Just wanted to point out that I added a new page called Couponing Info, up at the top.  There’s not much there at the moment and I’ll be adding more later.  But, it does have the coupon abbreviations that I use, as well as some helpful websites.  Check it out, and feel free to let me know if there’s anything in particular you’d like me to add.   Thanks!
