Loves me some grocery bargains (but loves me some giving birth better) 5/18/09

I'm just a wee bit preoccupied with the fact that I am almost to my due date (tomorrow!), can anyone tell?;)

Here's to hoping this is my last shopping trip post for a long time--but ah, I've said that before, haven't I( for like 4 weeks!)?!

So Albertson's has been awesome lately and has been workin' those doubles. I can hardly believe I live near a store that does this!

Here's a trip to Albies with doubles and coupons along with $4 in catalinas from the Kraft BBQ sauce deal last week. My out of pocket total was $1.81, I believe. I used 2 BBQ sauce coupons, a $2 off any meat purchase when you buy Kraft products coupons (on the Ball Park Franks), in ad coupons for the Ritz and Cheese, 2 $1/2 coupons for the juice and one $1/2 for the Bar S Franks along with 3 doublers.

Another Albies trip using doublers and the El Paso Cat. Deal. Spent $6 oop and not pictured are the newspaper I had to buy to get the doublers (lame!) and Nalley Pickles I got for $0.89 after doubles. Also pictured are the hot dog buns which were free after I got a catalina for $3 off meat cat from this which I used on the next transaction which is also pictured. For the turkey, 2 cans cream soup I spent $0.78 out of pocket.

I ran to Safeway to use up an expiring catalina for $2 and found that we had some "welcome to the neighborhood coupons at our new house. $2 off rancher's reserve beef and $2 off seafood when you spend $10 were two of them. Ialso used $1/1 coupons for the cornflakes to get them free, along with a free strawberries when you spend $10 coupons. I got all that shrimp for $3 after coupons! The skinless boneless chicken was $1.69/lb for 4 lbs. My total was just over $9 in the end.

Fred Meyer was my last stop, with the Kashi Waffles $0.29 after sale/coupon, Lay's kettle chips about $1.15 each after coupon/sale, bagged salad for 2/$1, Tillimook icecream $2.50 (so good...can't buy this often or I will eat it all!), pineapple was $1.98 and hunts marinara was $0.69 on special. Oh and ground beef was $1.49/lb. Not sure of my total, but I believe it was around $20 here. And the cutie in the picture was my big bargain helper:)

Can you tell me more about the El Paso catalina deal at Alby's?

You got some good deals for sure! Did you know that tomorrow's ad has doublers in it all week? If you had the energy to go and someone asked you when you were due it might be fun to say, "today!" Both of my pregnancies I've gone and gotten my hair cut on my due date. With my first child it involved a perm too. It was fun making the stylist nervous! :) Keep us posted as you can about all the baby details!
