My Haul from Giant Eagle, Rite Aid and K-Mart…about $30 spent for around $150 worth of goodies!

Some meat/cheese products not pictured…

Whew! What a night at the stores (with Mike wanting to strangle me the whole time…I finally sent him to Home Depot to buy himself a wrench, or a clamp…or something…).

Haven’t quite figured out the exact details yet, but I spent around $30-$35 for what I’m estimating to be around $150 worth of product (retail). This is after sales, promotions, Catalinas, register coupons, and Rite Aid rewards that I received back were factored in. I also got some Saving Star money back, but haven’t figured that into the total yet, which would make it a buck or two cheaper.

Rite Aid

  • 3 Pledge Multi-Purpose cleaners
  • 2 Lysol disinfectant wipes


  • 16 rolls of Sparkle paper towels
  • 2 Brut deodorant
  • 2 Sure deodorant
  • 2 Rite Guard body washes
  • 1 bag of dog treats (free with coupon in K Mart’s monthly ad)
  • 3 bottles of Purex detergent
  • 2 Soft Scrub cleaners
  • 1 Glade plug-in

(I’m new to the whole K-Mart coupon game (it is kind of confusing/infuriating!), but once I master the ins and outs I will be posting the best deals here on the blog, because with their doubling of $1 coupons, in-store register coupon deals, freebie coupons, and $5 gift cards, you can score some MAJOR free/cheap goodies here! But my total there should have been less if I’d done the deals correctly. I’ll figure it out and get back to you.)

Giant Eagle

  • 6 boxes of Totino’s pizza rolls
  • 2 Green Giant Seasoned Steamers Veggies
  • 1 box of Super Pretzels
  • 6 cans of Red Pack tomatoes (assorted varieties…yeah homemade sauce!)
  • Package of 14 chicken patties (Mike looooves these when he wants to munch late night…)
  • 4 Suave Shampoos

Shop n Save (forgot I made a quick stop there!)

  • 2 bags of Fresh Express salad mix
  • 3 boxes of Hamburger Helper (They still have selected varieties available for $1 if you still have some 75 cents/3 coupons laying around…I did!)
  • 3 bags of shredded cheese
  • Case of Mountain Dew cans (grrrr…no sale, no coupons…but Mike doesn’t drink coffee and he needs something to wake himself up in the morning…)
  • 2 packages of Chips Ahoy! cookies (there was a Facebook $1/1 coupon, making these 88 cents each, but it’s gone now, I checked for you guys) 😦
  • 2 lb Pork Sirloin roast (my freezer is already bursting at the seams with cheap chicken/ground meat, but we love pulled pork from the Crock Pot, and it was only $1.79/lb)

I think I got it all!! Anybody else have any great coupon halls this week? Tell us about it in the comment section below…


$1 off Sunbird Seasoning Packet (make your own Chinese take-out!) Free at most stores, Money-Maker at Wal Mart!

Giant Eagle (Pittsburgh area and national) Coupon Matchups 9/21…A Few Quick Deals Worth Stocking Up On!

The sale ad for Giant Eagle this week kinda made me want to press the snooze button a few times…but hidden amongst all the over-priced, supposed-to-be-sales advertisements were a few hidden gems!!

My Fave Deal of The Week (just cause I really wanted to try these, and they seemed really overpriced!)

  • Totino’s Pizza Stuffers are on sale 3/$10, plus save $2 instantly when you buy three
  • That brings the price down to 3/$8
  • Use 3 of the 75 cents/1 Totino’s Pizza Stuffers coupon from the 9/11 GM insert (which will double)
  • Get Pizza Stuffers for $1.13 each when you buy three. Not a bad deal!!

And a few deals that MAY be Pittsburgh-area only, please let me know if you are from outside this area and your local GE is still offering these deals:

  • Giant Eagle King Size White Bread is only 69 cents! (Don’t be afraid people…a clerk at GE once told me that the store-brand bread is actually made by Schwebel’s or some other well-known bread company, so feel free to stock up while the price is hot, smash as many loaves as possible into your freezer, and forget about worrying about bread for school/work lunches for a while!)
  • Bottom Round Roast is only $1.99/lb…not a FANTASTIC price, but you can still make a decent roast for 2-4 people for under $5 at this price. If you’re craving a big hunk of slow-cooked meaty goodness, go for it!)
  • General Mills Cereal (Cheerios or Reese’s Puffs) are on sale 5/$10…use this printable 50 cents/1 Cheerios coupon to snag up some cheap cereal for $1 a box.
  • Aquafresh Toothpaste (selected varieties) is only $1 per tube! The Aquafresh web site has a TON of coupons, depending on what types of toothpaste are available at this sale price, you can probably snag some up for FREE.

And if you happen to have a subscription to All You Magazine (if you don’t, you should get one!!)

  • Hunt’s Snack Pack Puddings are 10/$10…use the 50 cents/2 (will double) coupon on page 37 to get them for 50 cents each.
  • Ditto with Chef Boyardee Canned Pasta! Same sale price, same coupon, same page!!
