Keri's 1-12-11 Shopping Trip in detail

Hello all! I will go through my trip in detail. First I went to Albertson's to take advantage of their cereal sale.

In their sale you need to buy $15.00 worth of Kellogg Cereal to be able to get 6.00 free milk. BUT you know what- the 6.00 comes off instantly even if you do not have milk in your purchase. So, I guess it is an option. Use the 6.00 credit for free milk or not. :o)

Earlier last week I printed several cereal coupons from and it blended well with this sale! If there is still some kellogg's cereal coupons on there, print them and copy my trip! :o)

This morning I recieved a notification that gotmilk was giving out free milk to the first 100,000 people so I signed up and I got a free half gallon chocolate milk!!

I had some peelies for free marshmallow when you buy 2 rice krispies! I used those as well.

Here is what transaction #1 looked like:
2 Holiday Marshmallows @1.00/ea= $2.00
6 Kellogg's cereal @ 2.50/ea= $15.00
1 Viva half gallon milk @ 2.14
TOTAL: 19.14
Save 6.00 INSTANTLY!= -6.00 off
2- Free Marshmallows coupons = -2.00 off
3- 1.00 Doublers= -3.00 off
1- FREE Chocolate milk= -2.14 off
1- 1.00/2 Mini Wheaties= -1.00
2- .70/1 Cocoa Krispies= -1.40
1- 2.00/2 Krispies= -2.00

Here is transaction #2:
6 Kellogg's cereal @2.50/ea= $15.00
TOTAL: 15.00
Save 6.00 INSTANTLY!= -6.00 off
3- 1.00 Doublers= -3.00
2- .70/1 Raisin Bran= -1.40
1- 2.00/2 Crispix= -2.00
1- .70/1 Raisin Bran Crunch= -.70
1- .70/1 Corn Flakes= -.70

Here are the pictures and the reciept!

Then, I scooted over to Target to use up my Kikkoman coupons and get 2 things I needed from the dollar spot: a caddy and a little file organizer.

Target Trip:
Green Caddy
Green file organizer
HP Photo paper
2 Ortega Taco seasoning packets
1 Scrubbing Bubbles Spray Kit
6 Gillette Shaving Gel
2 Swiss Miss Hot Chocolate
5 Kikkoman sauce..
ALL FOR: $2.03!!!!!!
NOW NOW.. if I did not need the green caddy and green file organizer it would have been only .03CENTS!

Now.. is couponing worth it for me?? IT SURE IS!!!

What is Stockpile Porn?!?!

 "So, I have to share a guilty pleasure of mine with you. I LOVE looking at other peoples’ stockpiles! Who doesn’t? I didn’t coin the phrase, but the first time I hear it referred to as “Stockpile-Porn”, I laughed out loud. Looking at pictures of each others’ stockpiles is a strange addiction and once you start looking at the photos, you can’t look away! Ha, ha." - The Krazy Coupon Lady

This is my (Keri) basement- I have a large room under the stairs and I chose this location because it is usually dark and dry- and cool! Perfect for preserving food longer! :o) I bought the shelves at Target for my Scentsy business but some of them bent and has been banged up so I moved it to become my food pantry shelves for the time being. Dustin is planning to build long white shelves that wrap around the walls all around. :) WOOT! I can't wait. All of my shelves are catergoized to find things easier.
My categories are:

Cereal and crackers on tht tops of two shelves
Breakfast items (granola, oatmeal, etc) on one shelf
Pasta on one shelf
Flavored water/hot chocolate/drinks on one shelf
Pop on one shelf and more under both shelves on that side
CapriSun, Juice on one shelf
Sweets Mixes (Cake Mix, Brownies, Frosting) on one shelf
Snacks on TWO shelves: Cookie mix, fruit snacks, cookies, tons of candy.
Vegetable shelf
Baking stuff on two shelves
X-shelf (random things with no place to go)
Picnic supplies on the top shelf (plates, cups, etc)
Storage/Lightbulbs, etc on the top shelf
Condiments on one shelf
Sauces on one shelf
Soup on one shelf
Boxed dinners on one shelf.
There you go! All my personal items- toothbrushes, deodorant, shampoo, etc etc is in the bathroom closet upstairs. :o)

Keri's 1-6-11 Safeway Trip

I decided I might as well get some more fruit snacks on my Bozeman trip today. It is NOT too late for any of you to sprint over to a Safeway and pick up some fruit snacks boxes for .09 cents each!

I got 20 Fruit Snacks.. I split them in 4 groups of 5. (Because I want the Catalina to roll over on them.) What is a Catalina?? They are "store credit" that is issued to you at the end of check out when you purchase certain things and a certain amount. For this deal.. it was: Buy 5 Betty Crocker Fruit Snacks, get 3.00 Catalina.

Transaction #1: 5 Fruit Snacks- Store deal: Buy 4 or more.. get the .99cents price for all.
Total: 4.95
Used $1.00/3 internet printable coupon AND $0.50/2 internet printable coupons

Transaction # 2, 3, and 4: 5 Fruit Snacks.. .99 cents each since I bought more than 4.
Total: 4.95
Used $1.00/3 internet printable coupon AND $0.50/2 internet printable coupons
PLUS! I paid with the 3.00 Catalina.
TOTAL: .45cents! (THEN I GOT ANOTHER 3.00 CATALINA with EACH transaction to be rolled onto the next.)

I left the store with 3.00 catalina still in my pocket good for anything in the store. :)
TOTAL after coupons and catalina for all 20 fruit snack boxes: $1.80!!!!!!
