Safeway Has Some Great Deals

I did say at the beginning of the year that I was going to keep an eye on other stores to see what promos were going on. I know there's one at Giant that I haven't gotten to yet - hopefully will this weekend since I need diapers - have 1 less in diapers these days but still, 2 in diapers costs me plenty.

This week I couldn't resist heading over to Safeway and picking up a few things we really needed.

Here's what I got:

I spent: $26.82
And saved: $47.59 (65%)

That's not bad for savings but $9.01 of my spending was the ground beef and $5.00 was the milk which means I spent just $12 on everything else! ($0.81 was tax) I got 15 boxes for $12 or $0.80 a box.

6 boxes of cereal
6 boxes of fruit snacks
3 boxes of oatmeal

All the products are part of their Buy 3, Save $3.00 sale.

The match-ups were a little tricky but mostly because it was a lot of printables.

I used 2 $1.00/1 Quaker oatmeals coupons from HERE. I printed it twice - maybe you can print it more - didn't try.

I used 1 $1.00/1 Honey Nut Cheerios coupon and 1 $1.00/2 coupons from HERE.

I used $1.00/3 General Mills cereal coupon from G 1/3 or

And I used 3 $0.50/2 coupon from - all 3 of them doubled. I should also have gotten a $3.50 Catalina off my next purchase according to MoneyWise Moms but mine didn't print or if it did the cashier was too distracted by my triplets that she didn't give it to me. I will have to call and find out if I qualifed.

Safeway's coupon policy does not limit the number of internet printables used as long as the scan properly at the register. Harris Teeter's official policy is that they will only allow 2 per order but I believe it's up to the store as to whether or not they enforce it because so far mine never has.

For more match-ups for Safeway this week head on over to Moneywise Moms - this is a great sale and very worth heading over to Safeway for!
