Reader submission- Safeway deal!

It's always exciting to see results from our readers that find just as much success as we do. 
So here are her numbers! 

Trip #1: 15 boxes of cereal
                         20 boxes of fruit snacks
                         5 boxes of Nature Valley Granola Bars
    Total items:  40 items
    Total paid: 66.60
    Total Saved: 137.16
*got 2 $3.50 catalinas & a save $1 on 5 lunchables
*got a raincheck for Quaker oats squares ($1.50) planning on getting 20 boxes!!
** One key to remember is that Safeway gives rainchecks at the register.  When the cashiers ask, "Did you find everything you were looking for?"  Don't be afraid to let them know an item or two that you were missing to get the sale price when it's in stock.  Our reader gets to go back and get 20 boxes of those Quaker Oat Squares for the same deal that she would have today, if it were there.**
The deal was so great, she couldn't help making a second trip to keep stocking up!

Trip #2: 20 boxes of fruit snacks
             20 boxes of cereal
              5 boxes of Nature Valley Bars
              1 Princess and the Frog DVD
    Total items: 46 items
    Total Paid: 92.84
     Total Saved: 146.05
*got a $3.50 catalina
*got a $4 off any cereal
*got a $2 off any 5 General Mills Cereal
One of the biggest things to remember is that you DO NOT have to have coupons to SAVE, SAVE, SAVE!  All these savings happened by just swiping the Club card and paying attention to the deals.  The store coupons that are printed at the register are always helpful, especially those catalinas
What was your big deal of the week?
If you ever have questions on the blog post on the sales or how we would calculate an item, feel free to email us.  We'd love to help explain so you get the best deal possible.

One tip I'd give this reader is to order coupons from a coupon clipping site like The Coupon Clippers to get some extra savings off her $1.50 per box price!

Email submissions, be proud of your money saving adventures!
