Great Kool Aid Deal At University Safeway

I found this deal on Thurday night at the Safeway on University Ave.  I haven't had a chance to blog about it so I checked tonight to make sure there were a few packets left.  Well there were more than a few... there were about 8 display boxes full with a choice of two flavors, lemon/lime or watermelon/cherry.  The packets are regularly priced $.30 a packet.  The clearance sticker lowers the price to $.15.  The newsminer actually had two coupons in the inserts at the beginning of the month for Kool Aid.  One was Buy 2 Get 1 Free  and a Buy 10 Get 5 Free.  They automatically scanned off -$.25 and -$1.25.  If you have those coupons you can buy 18 for $1.20 ($2.70-$1.50).  Or you can get an even better deal and print a $.50 off a purchase of 5 packets HERE.  (Enter the Kool Aid giveaway on Facebook and they give you a coupon.  Make sure you hit the back button to print it twice.)  Using two of these coupons will score you 10 packets for $.50!  $.05 a packet!

Catalina List for Safeway and Freds

For those of you that don't have a clue what a catalina is...
You may have noticed a machine that prints out coupons during or at the end of your transaction.  Look closely at those coupons.  When I type OYNO (On Your Next Order), I am talking about a coupon that will print out for a stated amount that can be used towards your next order.  It is almost like a gift card in coupon form.  So when you read the catalina list, the wording "receive $3.00" does not mean they will hand you $3.00.  It means the printer will print a catalina coupon that says something like "Get $3.00 off your next order."  And that $3.00 coupon can be used towards basically anything.  If you get it for buying toothbrushes, you could use it on soda.  You can save a lot of money if you know what products trigger a catalina to print.

Refilling Your Ink Cartridge

video
I had to cut down the quality by about 92%.  It is a little echoed (almost like a lisp) but you get the idea.  I'll try to work on that for the next video.  I think it has to do with standing right next to the microphone.  I'm learning.  :)

I wanted to post a video showing people how to refill their own ink cartiridges.  I'm a huge fan of it.  Printed coupons is the number one way I save money.  I realized very quickly that I had to make it cost effective.  As far as saving paper, I printed out coupons on the back of every old paper I could find, including information packets and medical bills (without personal information).  Now I wait for a sale at Fred Meyers and pair it with their $3 bonus savings coupon on office supplies that I normally get in their quarterly coupon packet for using my club card.  Last time I made $.20 when I bought 500 sheets of paper.

Saving on ink was a little daunting of a task but after shelling out money for yet another ink cartiridge I thought, "What do I have to lose?"  And ever since then I have been saving money on my saving money adventure.  It honestly isn't very hard at all.  Though as you can tell by my hands it got a little messy this time.  I highly encourage it though.  Have a little faith in yourself and give it a try!

The ink runs at about $12.00 for an 8 refill supply at Fred Meyers.  They run 10% off ink coupons in their flyer pretty frequently but sometimes they run even higher percentages off.  Though note it is in the electronics section, not office supplies where I personally think it makes the most sense.  Another bonus is that I actually get to use all the ink in my cartiridge.  I don't throw away ink just because it is low.  I wonder how much ink is really left in a low cartiridge.  Maybe I don't want to know. :)

My Amazon Purchases

Things I'm ordering of amazon...

Froot Loops with Sprinkles Cereal, Sweetened Multigrain, 17-Ounce Boxes (Pack of 3)  Choose S&S for 15% off and free shipping.  $6.96
Rosarita Refried Beans, 16-Ounce Cans (Pack of 24)  Choose S&S for 15% off and free shipping.  $21.43

I can't wait until the Friday deals.  I just couldn't find good prices on the things we are running out of around here.  A lot of my week is going to be organizing my pantry and my coupon book.  Do you ever find yourself searching all over the place for a coupon you know you just saw yesterday?  I know I could be saving more if I just took a day to organize.  So that is what I'm doing.  I hope you all have a fantastic Thursday!

When I went to Safeway...

I saw advertised on another site that there was a B1G1 free sale on Tostidos plus free 2L Pepsi at Safeway.  I went to Safeway to take advantage of this deal and I found that there isn't a buy on get on free sale on the tostidos but they are on sale for something like $2.65 (which was cheaper than if they were BOGO because buying two on sale was cheaper than buying one at regular price, over $6).  But the coupons I found were hanging on the soda bottles and were buy two bags of tostidos, get one 2 liter pepsi free.  And this is very important..... one free pepsi coupon per transaction.  If you do multiple coupons they scan but it doesn't come off your bill.  That is at least what I came across.

More On Monday

I'm probably not going to be posting much until Monday.  The family, including me, has had a very sick two weeks.  Sadly the kiddo had another seizure from his temperature.  I even had a fever and I never get fevers.  So we are laying low and having movie parties.  Silver lining to any sickness is watching your whole disney movie collection.  :)

Somethings I noticed before we fell into the land of runny noses...
Those Frozen Food Coupon books were restocked at Safeway.  This was last week but they seemed to have many at the North Pole and Airport Safeway locations.  I also scored big time last week at the clearance area in North Pole Safeway.  I took pictures to post of all the groceries but I think it is better to look forward than back at this point.  Money is going to be very tight for the next two months so I'm going to stock up on the deals and live off of our current supply.  At least it will be good motivation for gardening.  Vegetables and fruit drain our grocery budget but are a must have.  Hope you all have a great weekend!
