A Little Goes a Long Way…

Posted by Seth in Food, Good Deals

I know many of my friends took advantage of the Saturday/Sunday Triple Coupon deals at Pathmark… I sure did.  If you didn’t, well I hate to be rude, but you’re an idiot.  Keep an eye out because rumor has it they will be back, if I were you, I’d snatch a nice assortment of $1 coupons (the maximum they will triple) either from the paper or a coupon clipping service.  I had a nice collection of $1 coupons for things that cost around $3, and many things were on sale, so I ended up walking away with a bit of free stuff.

For once I didn’t walk away with a bunch of body wash or cleaning products …  some real groceries that will last quite a while. I spent about $30 total out of pocket for all of the above – I took advantage of the huge discount as some of this stuff would not come this cheap again.

10 Bottles of Tabasco – free
8 Boxes of Popcorn – free
8 Boxes of Chex Mix 100 Calorie snacks
6 Bags of Quaker Rice Cake Snacks
2 bags of herr’s potato chips – free
2 bags of tortilla chips – free
2 bottles of Bailey’s coffee creamer – free
4 packages breakfast sausage – .50/each
2 pounds of mozzarella – $1/each
6 bottles KC Masterpiece bbq sauce – free
3 bottles soy sauce – free
4 bottles Teriyaki marinade – $1/each
9 bottles Frank’s – free
2 bottles Budweiser bbq sauce – free
6 Weber seasonings – free
12 Wacky Mac pasta – free
8 Garden Delight pasta – free
2 hot dogs – $1/each
6 cans Shave Gel – free

So if you’ve been following, you know I make my own frozen dinners.  Following the theme of this post, I picked up two small roaster chickens for about $10 from the store, and put them on my rotisserie (charcoal, of course).  Using the chicken, along with rice and vegetables that I already had in storage and were cheap or free, I made myself about 16 dinners.

No need to waste the leftover chicken parts.. they all went in to the pressure cooker and I made some chicken stock. I got almost 7 quarts!

Upcoming Pathmark Coupon Deals

Posted by Seth in Good Deals

If you have been keeping up with the coupon nerds, this shouldn’t be news to you.

May 6,7,8 Pathmark will be doubling coupons up to and including $2

May 14-15 Pathmark will be tripling coupons up to and including $1.

If you have any coupons more than $1, I would use them this weekend.  Save the ones less than $1 for the 14th and 15th. I haven’t seen the Pathmark ad yet, but just looking through my stash, there will be some very cheap stuff to be had. Enjoy.

Easy $100 saved at Shoprite this week

Posted by Seth in Good Deals

One of the receipts.. $60 saved, $23 spent. I'll take it.

This was an easy one.. ended up with a bunch of (for the most part) healthy stuff that I definitely will not waste.  Except for a few, all of these coupons you can print on the Internet at home.  They all coincide with store sales too.  If you have more than one computer, you can print more coupons.

My Shoprite (most of south Jersey) doubles coupons but only up to $1.  So if you have a 75C coupon, you’re only getting an extra quarter.  If I had the time, it would have been worth the extra savings to drive to Central Jersey (Hamilton), I think that is the closest one to me that fully doubles. 

I don’t remember exactly which coupons came from where, but they are all on , , or . Go to these sites and print up coupons for:

  • Cinnaburst Cheerios (you need quantities of 3 – explained below)
  • Pillsbury stuff – quite a few of these – print everything but the pie crust, so Crescent Rolls, Sweet Rolls, Cookie Dough, Italian Rolls, maybe one more (I forget). Print 2 of each.
  • Kellogg’s Raisin Bran
  • Birds Eye Steamers Frozen Vegetables
  • I Can’t Believe it’s not Butter spray w/ olive oil
  • Silk Soymilk (click here for that one, it’s $2 off, register and fill out the questions, it’s worth your time)
  • Nestle Chocolate Morsels – for baking

Other coupons, I found these in the Smartsource mailing that comes to my house in the middle of the week in what I thought was junk mail!!

  • $1 off 2 International Delight coffee creamers
  • $1 off Sorrento block of Mozzarella cheese
  • $1 off 3 Dole canned pineapples

You’ll need a Shoprite Price Plus card, you can sign up for one at their web site. 

Go to and link up your Shoprite card, and activate all of the electronic coupons for all of the stuff you just printed..  you’ll get extra cash off on top of sales and coupons.

That’s it. Go to the store, grab items for each coupon you have, and go ring it up.  Make sure you get exactly 3 boxes of Cheerios, because when you check out, you’ll get a coupon printed for a free gallon of milk on your next trip.  I had 6 coupons for Cheerios so I made 2 separate trips to get more free milk.   Also, grab an 18 pack of Shoprite eggs, those are free with the 2 I Can’t Believe it’s not Butter sprays.

So for about $50 out of my pocket(I splurged on some Skinny Cow Ice Cream that was on sale 🙂 ), I took advantage of $101.57 in savings and got the below mountain of food, stuff I won’t have to buy again for quite a while.

  • 6 Boxes of Cheerios
  • 4 Boxes of Raisin Bran
  • 3 bags of Nestle chocolate chips (oh yeah, it’s brownie time)
  • 8 Pillsbury items – crescent rolls, cookies, bread. I’ll bake these and freeze them, probably
  • 12 bags Birds Eye Steamer frozen veggies – broccoli, corn, mixed veggies
  • 2 Half-gallons of Lite Silk Soymilk (low calorie, far away expiration date)
  • 1 Pound Sorento Mozzarella cheese\
  • 3 cans Dole Pineapples
  • 2 Spray butters
  • 2 bottles non-fat flavored coffee creamers – 32 servings each, nice
  • 1 pack of Skinny Cow Ice Cream Sandwiches (they were on sale and they taste good)
  • 18 pack of Eggs
  • 2 gallons of Milk, free on my next trip

The store deals expire 4/16.
