I {heart} FREE groceries!

I'm starting to get the hang of this whole couponing thing- and- it's not very hard or time consuming and the best part is we ended up with a ton of FREE groceries this week. Who doesn't like FREE???? I am a HUGE fan of FREE... here's just some of my scores for the week.

RAINBOW
Wednesday is double coupon day at our local Rainbow. They will double up to 5 coupons and only coupons that are $1 or less can be doubled. In addition, you need to spend $25 in order for coupons to be doubled.

After perusing the Rainbow ad I came up with a plan:

Ritz Crackers OS for $2.50- MFG Q $1/1- Doubled= .50 a box
Wheat Thins OS for $2- MFG Q $1/1- Doubled= FREE
Band-Aids OS for $2- MFG Q $1/1- Doubled= FREE
3 Jello OS for 3/$1.98- MFG Q $1/3- Doubled=FREE + .04 Overage
Kraft Dressing OS for $1.67- MFG Q $1/1- Doubled= FREE + .33 Overage

I also purchased some of their Sale items:
Hamburger Buns= .49
Hot dog buns= .49
2 Roundy's sour cream tubs= $1.76
2 Roundy's Butter= $2.56

Total Food Purchase: $5.43

Now, I'm sure you are asking, "But what about the $25 additional purchase?". I bought a $25 gift card (I needed it for a gift anyway). If you didn't need a GC you could always buy a Rainbow GC for your next shopping trip, or if you have other shopping to do simply buy $25 worth of food.

From now on I will only shop Rainbow on Wednesday's!!! Yay for double coupon day. You may want to check with your local Rainbow, I'm not sure that all Rainbow's offer this AWESOME DEAL!


TARGET
I also scored at Target this week by stacking Target coupons with MFG coupons to = FREE or significantly reduced.

100 Cal Packs $2.94- Target Q $1/1- MGF Q $1/1= .94
Wheat Thins $2.04- Target Q $1/1- MFG Q $1/1= .04
Ritz Crackers $2.54- Target Q $1/1- MFG Q $1/1= .54
1lb. Bulk Apples $1.49 per lb. Target Q $1/1lb= .49
2 Kraft Dressings $1.59 each- Target Q $1/2- MFG $1.50/1- MFG $1/1= FREE + .32 Overage
2 Kraft Cheeses $2.19 each- Target Q $1/2- MFG $1/2= $2.38 for 2

Total Food: $4.07
