Hy-Vee Final Total (after you factor in coupons & catalinas): $68.78
The Kraft Catalina is rolling, so I wouldn’t need to hold all of my coupons till the end. However it was fun to watch my total go from $120 to $31 on that last transaction.
Prices for cereal were a little high at my store – so I may do one or two more transactions, I probably won’t have 30 boxes of cereal stocked up after this week. However, make sure to print off the current General Mills Cereal Coupons, because they will change over this evening.
Items that were free for me this trip: Dawn Dishwashing Liquid with $.50/1 Manufacturer Coupon + $.50/1 Hy-Vee Fundraiser Book Coupon, Kraft Singles, CapriSuns, and Dannon Activia Yogurt (with FREE coupon I got at BlogHer).
Awesome deals included $.28 Velveeta Shells and cheese (after catalina), $.09 Oscar Mayer Hot Dogs (after catalina), $.27 Lay’s Kettle Chips (after $1/1 Printable Coupon (NLA) and $.50/1 Hy-Vee Fundraiser Book Coupon.
There were tear-off pads of $1/2 Orville Redenbacher Popcorn at my Hy-Vee the day before the $1.00 sale – so I was able to get $.50 a box popcorn after coupon.
And so you don’t think I’m perfect – I bought the wrong size Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal (should have got the LARGE size).
What about you? How many times did you go to Hy-Vee this week? Leave me a comment and let me know.
