I just bought my Sunday newspaper (The Post-Gazette publishes an early edition on Saturdays) and I think I’ll buy a second copy.
There are two SmartSource inserts, a Valassis insert, and the P&G insert. Lots of coupons!
Before I even bought my newspaper, I flipped through to see what coupons were in it. There were two coupons for General Mills cereal: $1 off two Chex cereals, and $1 off two General Mills cereals. I ripped them out and bought four boxes at my Giant Eagle.
Giant Eagle is having a sale this week, when you buy four GM cereals at $10, you get $4 back instantly off your purchase. So that’s $6. Use those two coupons, and it’s $4. A dollar a box! What a deal.
I also bought another bag of frozen boneless skinless chicken breasts ($6).
My weekly grocery total is now at $35ish.
I’ll post some CVS deals later (don’t get excited, they’re kinda blah).
For now, we’re going to the church rummage sale and bake sale.
I don’t know if I’ll buy another newspaper or not. If I can find one at the Dollar Tree like MoneyCommonSense suggested, I might. There ARE a lot of coupons, but just a few things that I might actually buy. Definitely get one copy of the newspaper, and if you want another one, go for it.
