Sorry this is so late. Today I took advantage of the $5 Friday Sales at Safeway. You must be a Just 4 U Rewards member in order to get the reduced prices. Below is the breakdown of my transaction.
Buy 2 Boxes Cheerios at $5 (4 for $10)
Use a $1/2 Any General Mills Cereal Coupon (from 8/17/14 Smart Source coupon book)
Cost was $4 for the 2 boxes
Buy 2 Boxes Trix at $3.34 (3/$5 or $1.67 each)
Friday Special. After today it goes away. But, you can still use the 4 for $10 deal.
Use another $1/2 Any General Mills Cereal Coupon, making this $2.34.
Safeway gave me another $1 discount as a Just 4 U member reward.
Making these 2 boxes $1.34 for both or 67 cents each.
Buy 1 Gallon Whole Milk Regular price, $4.99 - Free with the purchase of four boxes of General Mills Cereal for $10.
I was able to get the milk for free, even though I used the lower priced Trix deal (3 for $5) for the final two boxes of cereal. I could have gotten four boxes of Trix and paid an even lower total price, but I didn't want that many boxes of one cereal.
Use a 55 cent off coupon. See ground beef below. There is a printable coupon for this savings. Even though the milk was free, the register still took off the 55 cents..
Total cost -55 cents
Buy 1.33 lbs. Lean Ground Beef at $4.83
The ground beef packages come attached with a 55 cent peelie, which is immediatly good on any California Dairy Product.
Total cost for today's trip was $9.62, a 63% savings on my grocery bill!
