I have been trying to explain to people how I do this and many say they can’t run around to all the stores and get the items. So I am showing them to make a list of the items on sale and only get those items and leave. Depending on the sales you can probably do this in 15- 20 min with no kids. It takes me 30 min, but I am trying to occupy little face’s time. I plan my shopping trip Tuesday nights after I receive my flyer in the mail. Pull my coupons and make my list. I put all the coupons in an envelope with my list and go to the store. The only detour I may do is going through the produce to see if there are any sales.
Tom Thumb sends out the sales flyer on Tuesdays. If you live in the Dallas area, you will get them in your mailbox. This is why Tuesdays are one of my favorite days to get the mail. Usually I get the paper and review the sales and also look at their super Q’s. These are store Q’s and can be combined with a manufacturer Q to make a product even cheaper. This week I paired my Cheez IT store Q with a manufacturer Q to get the price down.
Here is how I did:
(1) Apple Juice Store Brand $2.49 Sale price $1.49 – Stock up! This is cheaper than Walmart-Final $1.49
(2) Cheez It 9 oz box - $3.29 – Sale $1.49 $1/2 Q Cheez it brand crackers printable
-Final $0.99 each
(2) Mission Flour Tortillas 10 count $3.38 – Store Q for $1.00
-Final $1.00 each
(2) Ore-Ida Hash Browns $3.50 – Store Q $1.99 each, $1/2 Store Freezer Q book
-Final $1.49 each
(2) Ore-Ida Potatoes O’Brian - $3.50 Store Q $1.99 each
-Final $1.99 each
(2) Lysol 4 in 1 cleaner $3.19 – Store Q $1.99, $1/2 Lysol cleaner SS 4/17
All together I spent $16.64 and saved $16.47. While this is not a large percentage, I did get a very low price for juice and tortillas I cannot purchase anywhere else. I will probably go back and get more tortillas next week. I plan on freezing them. Someone told me they froze well. Let me know if you have tried this with success or failure. I am curious to see if this will work. I prefer the whole wheat tortillas for more fiber and nutrition. I may make some in the next couple of weeks if I cannot find them on sale.
I didn't have an additional Q for the Potatoes O'Brian, but I have a recipe I make with pork chops. It is a great stockpile recipe. I will share once I make it. How did you do this week? Did you find any great Deals or Steals please share. You can even share your blog site.
