I always feel like the cook who has a spoon in every single pot….I really just am inspired by so many people and ideas which combined with my love for learning and challenging myself, I set out to mater couponing. I have to say it is very exciting, but immensely time consuming to really get the deals like they are starting to spotlight on television.
Because it takes so much time, it like many other proverbial spoons got put back in the drawer, a knowledge that I possess but only take out of the drawer on special occasions.
This week at our Hy-Vee I hit a little jackpot, the spoon went back into the pot. They had an in store coupon $4.00 off milk when you bought 4 boxes of Kelloggs Rice Kripsies cereal. This reminded me that I had peelies for free M & M’s candies when you bought 2 boxes of Rice Krispies, these were peelies that I acquired from Target. Also to sweeten the pot I had $1.00 off fruit with the purchase of 2 boxes of Kelloggs cereals. I knew I could do a bit better and went to the Kelloggs website to look at the coupons available and sure enough they had $1.00 off 2 boxes of Rice Krispies.
So let’s recap my arrangement before going to the store:
$4.00 off milk WYB 4 boxes Rice Krispies
2- $1.00 off 2 boxes Rice Krispies
2-$1.00 off fruit WYB 2 boxes Kelloggs cereal
2- Free M & M’s WYB 2 Boxes Rice Krispies up to $2.99
I also had the Rice Krispies coupon from the newspaper Red Plum insert from April 17th.
There were enough coupons for me and my husband to each do a transaction.
Total for all of this………..
The bags in the front were $1.00 each and are poppy seeds from teh bulk section, I think we got about 6 pounds for $2.00!!
The total bonus to this is that these boxes were marked with codes that can be redeemed on the Kelloggs website here. Each box has one code 4 codes earns you a $5.oo pre paid visa gas card. I already entered and sent away for my free $10.00 in gas!!!
