Weekend Shopping Deals

I was able to get a few really good deals over the weekend, so I thought I'd share them with you today. First of all, here's what I got at Tuesday Morning on Friday:

They had a sale that started at 9:00 on Friday. It included a bunch of Martha Stewart tools, and I went to see what they had in the line of punches. I wasn't able to get there until late afternoon because I had a funeral to attend, and I didn't see any punches that interested me. But I did find a few other things! :) Here's what I got:

  • Fiskars craft knife blades - $0.99/5
  • 3 packs vellum quotes - $0.79 each
  • 3 rolls damask stickers by Heidi Swapp (51 stickers per roll, and they're BIG stickers!) - $1.99/roll
  • Making Memories "Halloween" paper that doesn't look a bit Halloween to me - $2.99/25 sheets
  • Making Memories titling letters - 4 shades (2000+ characters) for $1.99

Here's a closeup of those vellum title packs (Best Occasions brand):

And here is a closeup of the damask stickers in black. (I also got them in white and pink.)

And finally, a picture of the reverse side of that "Halloween" paper:

Last of all, I'll share my best grocery deal of the weekly shopping trip. This week I had to get groceries for revival, and the church pays for those groceries since I fix all the meals myself ... So I didn't take pictures, but I did get a few great deals that I bought with my own grocery money. The first great deal is all of this cereal, plus 2 gallons of milk (not pictured because I didn't buy them yet) ...

... for $13. Not bad for 11 boxes of cereal and 2 gallons of milk!

I got the Honeycomb at Superfresh with a 3/$3 coupon I was able to use because my revival groceries hit the $25 mark (thanks to other fabulous deals I was able to take advantage of). Also at Superfresh, I got roast for $1.69/lb, pork loin for $1.97/lb, and a gallon of Wesson canola oil for $4.99.

Then at Food Lion, I scored 8 boxes of Frosted Flakes and 2 gallons of milk for $10. You see, they had a catalina promotion going on that ended on Saturday. Since I went shopping Saturday (which I hate to do, but the rest of the week was busy), I was able to combine it with the weekend sale on Frosted Flakes - 2/$3. The catalina deals was to get a coupon for a free gallon of milk (up to $4) if you purchased 3-4 boxes of cereal in the same transaction.

So I did the deal the first time, paid $6 for 4 boxes of cereal, got a catalina coupon for a free gallon of milk ... and discovered $1/2 coupons inside 2 of the boxes. So I went to the Food Lion closest to my house and bought 4 more boxes of Frosted Flakes, used the two $1/2 coupons, and paid $4 for 4 boxes of cereal and a catalina coupon for a free gallon of milk.

It's a good thing we LOVE Frosted Flakes! :) We like to eat cold cereal as a bedtime snack.
