Monday Matchups ~ all the meals, all the deals!

Happy MONDAY my friends! How are you??

 

So far this week, I did a MEAL PLAN HERE

 

I planned a simple RITE-AID Ups rollHERE

 

I read the paper and review the adsNOTE – The Aldi ad for this week shows a fresh family pack of chicken breast for 1.89/lb on WEDS – the FRESH meat special buy day…??? Has anyone done this deal??

 

I got a small Redplum and a Smartsource in each of my papers today…

 

The SmartSource coupon inserts also include some GREAT Tops coupons that can be combined with regular manufactures coupons….

 

So Back to TOPS:

After the H&B week and then the dollar doubler week I figured I had no reason at all to go to TOPS this week but WOW – the deals are still rolling…. Lots of buy this many, save this much deals and basically they equate to $1 LESS per item so really good prices! Don’t forget all the click to card coupons available on the Tops site; including a $5/$50 coupon (or 2), so add that now!! Click HERE

 

Click HERE – for all the TOPS deals I am interested in this week!

 

SO – favorite meal?? Favorite deal?? Share something with us!!

Rite Aid Deals and rolling the UPS – HERE

 

~ And after careful review and much coupon sorting…

 

BELOW are MY favorite TOPS deals for this week – Take a look at the ad!!

 

General GREAT Deals ~

Ground Beef @ $2.99/lb (Best price I have seen on decent burger in a while…sad but true!)

Whole Boneless Pork Loin @ $1.99/lb *Personally I cut this in 1/3’s and make 3 separate roasts BUT did you know you can ask the butcher at the store to cut this for you… all chops… whatever you want! This is a delicious cut of meat and a GREAT price!!!

Butter @ $1.99 (STOCK UP!!)

Eggs – 2/$3

 

10 for $10 sale – Buy 10 and get the 11th item free (so .90 each – great deal on 2 liters to start stocking up for camping season!)

  • Pepsi 2 Liter
  • Gatorade
  • Propell
  • Snapple
  • Upstate Intense milk
  • Tops Pasta
  • Del Monte Tomatoes
  • Green Giant canned Veg
  • Rotel Tomatoes use the $1/3 Rotel coupon from the 1/18 Smartsource
  • Chef boyardee cans and Micro cups
  • Starkist Albacore Canned
  • Manwich
  • Quaker Popped rice cakes use the $1/2 Quaker Popped coupon from the 1/4 Redplum pay $.50

Nabisco Snack crackers – 3 / $6 ( $2 each ONLY when you buy 3)

– the $1/3 Nabisco coupon from the 1/18 Smartsource

Sugardale Hot Dogs – $1.25 (We hoard these for fish food – fishing at camp!)

– the $.50/1 Sugardale coupon from the 2/1 Smartsource

= $.25

 

My reason for shopping this week ~

BONUS 200 GAS POINTS WHEN YOU BUY 5 CEREAL – LOVE the cereal stock up option!! All cereal (as listed in ad) is $2.50/box!

Buy 5, deduct your coupons and still get 200 BONUS gas points worth $6! That is an additional savings of $1.20 off each box… so for example, I have $1 of Post Honey Bunches of Oats Q’s… so my cereal will be only $1.50 ($2.50-$1 coupon) BUT I will get $1.20 value in free gas, so cereal is only $.30/box!!

BUT WAIT… I also have “buy 2 cereal get a FREE gallon of milk coupons”…

AND would you believe I also have “buy 2 cereal and save $2 on coffee coupons”… and there is a super deal on a small canister of Maxwell House for only $1.99… so FREE coffee as well!

THIS is my favorite coupon deal ever – LOL!!!!

 

  • General Mills – $1/3 General Mills coupon from the 2/22 Smartsource (I have received 2 catalinas for $2.50 off of 5 boxes recently so check your stash and check your printables!)
  • KELLOGGS
  • Quaker (look for peelies!)
  • Post (I ordered some good coupons for these!)
  • TOPS BRANDS

 

…and FINALLY ~

Then there is this deal… HEALTH AND BEAUTY CARE COUPON FOR BONUS GAS POINTS – IN AD!!

(100 Pts WYB $10, 200 Pts WYB $15 and 300 Pts WYB $20) * be safe, scan the” in ad coupon FIRST

There is also THIS pdf printable from Tops for $5/$20 HERE

AND this $2/$10 in Health and Beauty coupon HERE

AND click-to-card just issued 3 coupons for TopCare Children’s Suspension ($3), Omeprazole ($3) and Ibuprofen ($2)… add them HERE

… I need to check for more coupons…. But liking:

  • SOFTSOAP hand soap – B1G1

  • IRISH SPRING or SOFTSOAP Body Wash or Speed Stick GEAR Deodorant – 2/$7
  • SUAVE Shampoo – $1
  • HALLS – $1.25 (use the $1/2 Halls coupon from the 2/8 or 1/11 SS)

riteaid-logo

Rolling my UPS at Rite-aid this week….

 

I am excited to get some toothpaste stocked up again… When I started couponing, at one point I had over 100 tubes of toothpaste, then I went to Coupon-ers Anonymous for my “issues” and now that I have had to buy toothpaste the last few weeks, you can see why this makes me happy… hahaha

Also had a friend give me a few more Tresemme Qs, so I will do the shampoo again and the Chloraseptic is always good to have on hand… By the end of the week, I will go back and re-roll all my ups in to the Centrum/Robitussin Deal to start building those up again too… Nothing worse than needing cough medicine and having to pay $7 when with a little preplanning you can have it on hand for only $1!!

So HAPPY SHOPPING!! What is your favorite deal this week??

Rite-aid (week of 2/8/15)

Wanna play a “STOCK UP” game with me? I have been sadly lacking about posting my Rite-aid scores lately and to be honest, my stock pile is looking pretty lame…. You know as told to me by the pilferers amongst us!

So I figure if we can all start with about $10, we can start getting some GREAT deals and play the rolling game!

This week (using this week’s coupons) I am going to get:

 

ReNu solution – $7.99 *LIMIT 2

-$2 02/08/15 inserts

$7.99 – $2 mfq

= $5.99 out of pocket

GET -$4 UP = $ 1.99

 

 TRESemme 32oz or select styler – $3.99 * LIMIT 4

-$2 Tresemme Product (RP 02/08/15)

Buy 2 = $7.98

– $4 mfq

= $3.98 out of pocket

GET – $3 UP = 2/$.98

 

Then because RA makes you wait a day to use your UPS, I will go back and do these 2 items again using the $7 in UPS I will have….

If you have more UPS, or want to start a little stronger and have the coupons from the past, this is also an excellent deal:

 

Glade $5 UP wyb $15 (DD with Catalina $3 wyb 4) *LIMIT 2

-$2 off 2 Glade Product (SS 01/04/15)

Candles are $3 / Buy 5 = $15 (or 4 candles and 1 ziplock bag also $3)

– $4 mfq

= $11 out of pocket

GET -$5 UP and $3 Cat = 5/$3.00

 

So – are you hitting RA? What good deals did you find??
