I went to a few yard sales today. I got all this at two yard sales and only spent $6.25. Two of the things (Match Box airplane and a Diego coloring book) are still in their original packaging and will be used as Christmas gifts. The wrapping paper is also brand new.

I didn’t do much shopping last week so this week I did a big shop. Not so much a lot of items but a lot more then I normally spend. I went to both Fry’s and Safeway. I found a bunch of new recipes I wanted to try and was missing items for all so had to buy several items that were not on sale. I seem to have a lot less time now that I have two kids so I am just going to jot down the best deals from now on. Transaction Seattle’s Best Coffee (Reg. $8.99, Sale $5.99 - $1.50Q = $4.49) Knorr Pasta (Reg. $1.79, Sale $.88 - .75 cell fire - .75/2 doubled to $1/2 = .01/2) Thomas English Muffins (Reg. $3.89, Sale $2 - $1Q = $1) I spent $85.32 and saved $77.87 which is only 48%. I had to buy dog food (not pictured) so that always throws my savings off.
Safeway is running another Mix & Match sale where you buy 10 participating items and they take $5 off your bill. There were a few things we eat included in the sale so I decided to check out the sale. Not only that, but raspberries are on sale for $.88 a carton. That is a great deal. I got there and they were completely out. When I went to check out I asked about them and they brought me up some that had just arrived on the truck. I am now in the process of freezing a bunch of raspberries. Yummy!! Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal (Reg. $3.49, Sale $2 - .50 M&M sale - .75Q doubled to $1 = .50) 2 Ken’s salad dressing (Reg. $3.69, Sale $2.19 - .50 M&M Sale - $1Q = .69) 3 Jello Pudding (Reg. $1.85, Sale $1 - .50 M&M sale - $1/3Q = .50/3) 2 Peter Pan Peanut Butter (Reg. $3.19, Sale $2.49 - .50 M&M sale - $1Q = .99) 2 Tropicana OJ (Reg. $4.59, Sale $1.99 - $1.25/2Q = $2.74) Lucerne Butter (Reg. $3.99, Sale $1.49) 2 pkgs Steak (Reg. $28.46 & $27.61, Sale $6.89 & $6.68) Yellow and Orange Pepper (Reg. $1.99, Sale .50) 2 Athenos Feta (Reg. $3.99, Sale 2/$4 - .50Q doubled to $1 = 2/$3) 10 Raspberries (Reg. $3.99, Sale $.88) I spent $44.81 and saved $116.44 which is 72%.
