I haven’t stockpiled much of anything for the last few months. I’ve been really busy with unpacking and the holidays– plus, there are very few things that I really NEED at this point besides fresh food. So! this weekend, I decided to take advantage of a couple of sales. This isn’t my grocery money for the weekend– just my stockpile money that has been piling up since October. :) (I budget $10 a week for stockpiling–in addition to my monthly grocery budget)

Shopping Trip: OOP: $51 {3rd Perfect Pairing trip}

Snip20131122_44

 

I was lucky enough to snag another $10 off 3 Perfect Pairing coupon from a friend of mine–and with all the great Ralphs eCoupons (which are all available right now!) I decided to take a trip in again. :)

Not sure what I am talking about? Take a look at the entire promotion HERE. You can also do this at Food 4 Less with Less Out of pocket. Check out the details on the promotion HERE

I went to Ralphs and Albertsons. Here is my breakdown:

Albertsons:

Bought-

(2) Essential Everyday Crackers $2.50 each
(3) Crav On French Fries $2.99
1 lb bananas
Cilantro
3 Limes
3 Avocados $1.25 each
(2) EE Cream cheese $0.99 each
(2) EE Rice Cakes $2.50 each
(2) 32 oz Bags of EE White Rice $1.79 each
5 lb Bag of Cuties $2.77
(1) Tapatio
1 lb Strawberries $2.99
Jalapeños
1 onion

Used:
(4) Essential Everyday BOGO Free coupons
(3) FREE Product Crav On coupons
used $20 off $20 purchase coupon from Gift Card deal
Paid: $4.75

My Ralphs trip wasn’t as great as I hoped for. I wanted to use the $5 off meat coupon in conjunction with the $5 off Seafood eCoupon that was available. I THOUGHT that if I purchased $15 worth of Seafood and $10 worth of Beef that both eCoupons would come off (since the $5 off $20 eCoupon is for meat AND Seafood) However, that did not work for me.

I think if you plan to do the same as me– you are better off sticking to strictly seafood vs. mixing them up (or maybe the $5 off $20 eCoupon isn’t working for Seafood? Despite what it says)

Bought :

– 4 Bottles BV Coastal $5.59 each
– 2 bottle Smirnoff $9.79 each
– 4 boxes General Mills Cereals $2.50 each
– 4 Betty Crocker Pouch Cookie $1.67 each
– 1 Coffee mate creamer $2.99
– $17 worth of Salmon
– $11 Ground Beef
– 2 Gallons of Milk (Free with purchase of milk and Betty Crocker cookies
– 1 Sprite $1.19
– 6 Toblerone Chocolate $1 each
– 3 Duracell 4 pack batteries $1.99 each
– 1 Stacys Baking Chips (found in the Deli/Bakery)
– 3 mini lunchables $1.69 each
– 2 McCormick Gourmet Spices $2.99 each
– 1 Canadian Bacon $2.69

Used:

– (3) $0.50/1 Duracell coupons
– (3) $1/2 Toberlone coupons
– Free Stacys eCoupon
– $1/1 Coffeemate coupon
– (2) $2/1 McCormick Gourmet Spices coupon
– (2) $0.75/2 Betty Crocker Cookie Mix coupons
– (2) $1/2 General Mills coupons
$10 off 3 Perfect Pairings Hangtag
– $6 off $60 eCoupon
– $5 off Seafood eCoupon
– $40 Perfect pairing promo
Paid: $47.00, will submit for the $8 Smirnoff Rebate in the 11/10 RP
= like paying $39 for entire order!

If you want to use all of the Ralphs eCoupons that are available–I would suggest that you purchase $20 worth of seafood and $40 of groceries and of course, your six bottles of whatever. :) My thoughts are (because it worked last time I did this) that the $6 off $60 eCoupon, $5 off Seafood and $5 off $20 Meat or Seafood eCoupons will all come off your order if you do it that way.
