But this week they have a lot of General Mills things for 10/$10 if you buy a multiple of 10. Jewel also has automatic savings tied to your card if you check them online before you shop. My weekly deal was $1/1 Cinnamon Toast Crunch limit 2 per order and $1/1 Fiber One bars limit 2 per order. Then on two days I had $2/2 Pop Secret limit 6 deals.
I first bought 20 items for myself, costing about $6 after auto coupons and coupons from the papers.
Then we went back on Monday and bought 50 items, in 5 transactions with all the coupons I could find. We spent $13.78 on this:
After I took that picture, I went back on Tuesday morning because Matt was sick and needed 7-up and Jello, and got 10 more completely free with auto-savings items, plus a $1 coupon, meaning I spent -.77 for those 10, bringing my total for 60 items to $13.01 or $.22 per item!
33 granola bars
1 chex mix
We kept only a few things out of these 60. The rest are going to a food bank. It's crazy when the stores want to give things away!
