Hope for Tomorrow, Grace for Today...what it means...

For in this HOPE we are saved. But HOPE that is seen is no HOPE at all. Who HOPES for what he already has?

~Romans 8:24

And if by GRACE, then it is no longer by works; if it were, GRACE would no longer be GRACE.

~Romans 11:6

More Safeway...Okay...I may have a problem!!!

Alright...I had a big post typed up, and my 19 month old in my lap deleted it all and I couldn't get it back. I have no energy to re-type that!

Long story short, I went back to Safeway (stop laughing at me, Lisa!), but I didn't do another $10 off $50 coupon transaction for moral reasons. On the coupon it states 1 per household. I am assuming that is for the week, though I don't know, but I didn't want to push my luck and ruin future saving for me and others!

So I did 2 transactions.

If you want coupon links/other ideas, please go to http://www.frugallivingnw.com/ because they have the links for printables. I had them all on here, but again, the boy deleted it.

I got the Ziploc containers in the first transaction, used coupons and paid $4.96 (because I saved my doubles for the next transaction. I am sure I could have used doubles for both, but I didn't have another paper coupon for it, and my cashier wasn't going to do it without the paper coupon. Again, not going to push it. I got 2 $2 catalinas for my next trip.

In the second transaction, I got the rest of the stuff and used several coupons (though I was out of the Coffee-mate coupons...still a smoking deal, though!). I think all the coupons I used can be printed, so you don't even need insert coupons from the paper!

Remember that you have to buy 8 or more of the promo items together in a transaction to get the $.50 off per item

The total was $7.05 after doubles

I paid with $3.05 cash and my $4 in catalinas!!

Total Out-of-Pocket for all in the picture...$8.05 (because they rounded up my first transaction for cancer research...Aren't I a giver?? 4 whole cents! Yikes!)


  1. You are so funny!! You did awesome!! Is there a screaming deal on the Go-gurt right now? My boys love those!

  2. yep went to walmart and safeway before work this morning so i could get my deals too. I'm a little crystal light obcessed so I did the 8 items for $4 off was 8 boxes of crystal light ( with coupons too ) then did the ziploc bags ( with coupons ) and got my 3 creamers too!! Plus saved $7 with coupons at walmart this morning and had the cashier tell me she was excited to see us "young gals" using coupons!! What a great way to start the day.

  3. Go-gurts are $1.99 with the buy 8 deal. I had coupons and doubles. I think there are ecoupons, but I used them at an earlier sale.
