This One Definitely Had Me Doing My Happy Dance!!!

Yes, that's right, I dance in public.  But you would too if you scored these sweet deals at Shaw's!  You still have plenty of time to do just that, and the best part is ALL of the coupons I used were internet printables, so you can do this even if you aren't a newspaper insert collector!

First, make sure you have plenty of ink in your printer, then head here and start printing!!!  What you'll need for these particular deals is the $.85/3 Betty Crocker baking items, $.60/1 Honey Nut Cheerios, $.85/1 Cascadian Farm Product, $.60/1 Chex Mix and $.85/3 Totino's Pizza Rolls.  There are MANY others including the Yoplait Kids Yogurt, Yoplait Smoothies and Cinnamon Toast Crunch which are amazing deals this week.  I just happened to have saved those for another trip ;-)

I will give you the rest of the links as we go!

I did have two transactions, not to circumvent any coupon policies, and not because of any concern with multiple GM deals discounting correctly, it was all about the Catalinas!

Transaction #1:

4 Crystal Light On the Go
Regularly $2.99
On Sale for $1.99 each

4 Oscar Mayer Hot Dogs
Regularly $3.79 each
On Sale for $1.99 each
I used 2 $1/2 OM Hot Dogs Coupons
Final Price $1.49 each

2 Kraft American Singles
Regularly $4.79 each (which is insane compared to the store brand)
On Sale for $3.69...a little bit better
I used 2 $1/1 Kraft Singles Coupons
Final Price $2.69 each

Total before sales and coupons $36.70
I Paid $19.30, plus I earned $13.00 in Catalinas; $10 for buying 10 items participating in the Kraft Catalina, plus Crystal Light is running it's own Catalina deal right now!  That's a savings of 47% just based on what I spent, since it's my philosophy that you don't count the Catalina until you use it, that's when it saves you money!

Now for the major deals!!!
