My Albertsons Extravaganza!!!

Okay, so I was able to get to Albertson's today while my kiddos were in school and it really was worth all the frustration that I had the day before!  I first went to my local Albertson's and did pretty well there.  I was able to get the following:

Transaction 1: 
-14 packages of Jennie-o ground turkey
-10 boxes of cereal
-1 2lb brick of cheese
-7 bags of M&M's
-4 Silk soy milks
-4 Steaks

Grand total:oop was 24.81

I also recieved 3 catalinas for free milk and can submit for a $10 gas card from Kelloggs
(I was able to make this such a rockin deal due to the fact that I was able to get $25 gift card for transferring a prescription, so my total would have been more if not for that.)

Transaction 2:
-10 boxes of cereal
-2 bags of m&m's 
total oop:$11.00
*this would have been cheaper but I only had 1 set of doublers from my paper, and they store was out

It was at this point that I went to a different Albertsons (the one on 181st) where they actually had products in stock! Rather then type this six times here is the run down
6 Transactions:
-6 boxes of cereal in each transaction
-1 bag of m&m's (in my 1st transaction)
Total spent oop: $24.00

So for around $53 dollars I got 56 boxes of cereal, 4 steaks, 14 pounds of ground turkey, 4 soy milks, and cheese...BUT I also have 18 Catalinas for free milk (up to 3.99 value:18x4=$72 savings) AND will be submitting to get $50 in free gas cards...so this turned out to be a total moneymaker!

Oh, and before you go running off to call Hoarders for my cereal hoarding I just want you to know that we will be keeping a few for ourself and donating the rest to a local food bank (same with the milk).  So not only did I get to buy all our cereal for the year, I am making a charitable contribution to my community, and my daughter can't wait to go...she loves to donate!  Yeah...I have to say this was one of my fav trips yet!!!

3 people have had something to say about this:
