Commissary Savings

As I mentioned in the last post, I went to the commissary earlier this week. I just had to tell you about some great deals I got. I saved $37 and change in coupons alone and a lot more in sale prices. Crest toothpaste, several different varieties, was on sale for $1/tube. I had 25 coupons for $1 off making them free. I had to restrain my self and it wasn't easy but I only took 5 of them home. The killer cereal deal I mentioned in the last post was this. Buy 3 boxes of Kellogg's cereal and get 1 gallon of milk free. Any brand any kind of milk. Well, Rice Krispies were on sale and I had coupons for $1 off making them something like 67 cents each and my hubby's favorite Raisin Bran Crunch was on sale for the same deal and of course I had another $1 coupon. So I got 3 large boxes of cereal for less than $2 and got a free gallon of milk. We buy the German milk that you keep in your cupboard until you need it and then refrigerate. It's like Parmalat in the States. It's 90 cents for 1 quart and I got 4 of them thus saving $3.60. How cool is that! 3 boxes of cereal and a gallon of milk for less than 2 bucks! Other cool deals were 2 18 count packs of Kotex for 29 cents each. They weren't on sale but I was out of them and had 2 coupons for $2 off so it was still a great deal. 5 boxes of pizza rolls for 45 cents each. 2 bottles of St. Ives body wash for something like 35 cents each combining coupons and sales. A large bottle of Coffee Mate flavored creamer in my favorite flavor for about a dollar. Maxwell House coffee, the large can, was on sale for $5.99 and I had a coupon for 1.25 off so I got 2. There were other deals but those were the killer ones. I was quite excited about them. Anyone else get any good deals this week?

I miss having a commissary!!! I am glad you found those great deals. I can't say I found any great deals this week....but didn't have much shopping to do, either. Oh.....I did get good quality pork chops and pork roasts, two of them, for .99/lb. Not bad for meat these days!
