I used a $5 off $50 coupon and paid 13.87 out of pocket. Half of this stuff was my mom's - she's paying me back $4 of that, so really I got everything for 9.87. Not bad for all that shave gel & foil!

I'm going back today for .50 Chinet paper plates - they're 1.50 on sale and there is a 1.00/1 IQ here. Some people are finding .55/1 peelies on their plates, but my store doesn't have any peelies.

I'm soaking up every last minute of this doubles week - are you?

Last Doublers Trip to Albie's!

Sorry for the fuzzy picture - camera phone picture!

Well, the doublers expired on Tuesday, so I made one last run with them. I hope this doublers thing is a monthly occurence. This is the most fun I've had grocery shopping since I moved to California almost a year ago.

AZ readers, you won't be able to replicate these deals because So Cal Albie's is different that your Albie's. But I am posting so you can see I am still alive and couponing!

2.00 Frosted Mini Wheats (2) - clearanced with 2012 expiration
-1.00/1 MQ from Vocal Point mailer (2) + 2 doublers
Wish I had more of these coupons! There were at least 20 clearanced boxes left!

1.00 Starkist Ready to Eat Tuna Pouch (2)
-.50/1 IPQ (2) + 2 doublers
.49 Pillsbury Brownie Mix (10) Raincheck from WYB 10 deal a couple of months ago
-.40/1 MQ 6/12 RP (10) + 10 doublers
.31 overage on each or 3.10 overage all together!

1.50 Lawry's Seasoning Packets (4)
-.50/2 purple peelie MQ (2)  found at Bashas in May + 2 doublers
1.00 each
Not a good deal! I don't know what I was thinking, but I miscalculated thinking they'd be .50 each.

FINAL TOTAL = .90 out of pocket

More fun at Albie's with doublers!

I am officially addicted to doublers at Albie's! They don't come that often in Southern California so I am cashing in while I've got them.

Here's what I did today...

1.79 Best Life Buttery Spread (6)
-1.00/1 IPQ + doubler
.21 overage each

2.00 Chips Ahoy Ooey Gooey (2)
-1.00/1 IPQ from Facebook promo last month no longer available + doubler (2)

3.00 Dreyer's Ice Cream (2)
-1.00/2 6/12 SS + doubler
2.00 each
According to multiple So Cal blogs, I should have received a $4 OYNO back making these free, but no $4 cat printed. I know the machine was working because I got the 20% Payless coupon. Darn it!

4.19 Albie's milk
-Free Cat from last month's Nature Valley deal

1.00 Starkist Ready to Eat Tuna Pouch (4)
-.50/1 IPQ (4) + doubler (4)

Total out of pocket was 2.47 - I still have a few doublers left, so I'll see what else I can match up!

My first Albie's doublers trip...

105.15 worth of groceries for 6.88 out of pocket!

I know all my AZ friends won't be able to replicate these deals - So Cal Albie's is a different company that the Albie's in AZ. But I am posting this for my California shoppers...

I love doublers at Albie's!

I had heard about them all over the frugal blog world for years and was always so jealous. I guess one this is one good thing about shopping in California. Thank goodness! I need all the perks I can get out here. AZ people - count your blessings to be where you are. I have never seen milk here below 3.00 a gallon EVER. Ugh... Anyway, onto the doublers...

This was my first experience with doublers, so I read up on the blogs about limits, etiquette, beeps, etc. I had all my items split out so I only used 2 doublers per transaction (per the coupon), but when I got to the cashier, she said she'd just combine everything! I had one doubler for each manufacturer's coupon I used. I figured I should go for the gold and cash in all the coupons I could. Getting things for free is very rare in California, even with coupons, so I went a little nuts. 

Here's the breakdown...

There was a 1.88 WYB 6 sale going on-

1.88 Keebler cookies (8)
-1.00/1 yellow peelie MQ (8) found at Albie's about a month ago
-1.00 doubler for each MQ (8)
.12 overage each!

1.88 Frosted Flakes (2) These are BIG boxes! The Cars 2 promo boxes were not included.
-1.00/1 Frosted Flakes IPQ (2) - no longer available
-1.00 doubler for each MQ (2)
.12 overage each!

1.88 Kellogg's Nutri Grain Bars (6)
-1.00/2 MQ (3) I found these inside Nutri Grain boxes a few months ago
-1.00 doubler for each MQ (3)
.88 each Not free, but a good stock up price!

1.88 Pop Tarts (2)
-1.00/2 MQ (3) I found these inside Nutri Grain boxes a few months ago
-1.00 doubler for each MQ (3)
.88 each Not free, but a good stock up price!

2.04 Fuji Apples
-1.00 off fresh fruit wyb 2 Kellogg's Nutri Grain Bars MQ Also from the Nutri Grain boxes
-1.00 doubler

3.00 Oscar Meyer Deli Fresh Combo Pack
-1.00/1 blue peelie MQ found on package
-1.00 doubler

1.00 Lunchables (12)
-1.00/2 pink peelie MQ (6) found on Lunchables earlier this summer 
-1.00 doubler for each MQ (3)
All 12 for free!

6.88 total paid out of pocket!

How many Huggies wipes did you get?

I was so excited to see this Huggies wipes deal at Walgreens this week! I have two in diapers so I like to keep a healthy stockpile of wipes at all times. I went Saturday night when my store turned the next week's sale prices on to make sure I was able to use all my coupons. The shelves were fully stocked, but I didn't want to take any chances waiting until Monday (I don't shop on Sundays).

Here's what I did...

5.99 Huggies refill pack
-2.00/1 Wags coupon from August coupon booklet - these are all over the store
-2.00/1 Wags coupon from Infant Care Booklet - I've never seen these, but I was able to use the code
-.50/1 MQ 7/17 SS
1.49 each!

I also had one coupon for .75/1 Huggies wipes from a home mailer, so one of my packs was actually 1.24! What a great deal!

The Infant Care coupon booklet was out in the spring time I guess, but I've never seen it. I had the coupon code (5519) and the cashier just manually entered the numbers. As long as you have the cashier scan the manufacturer's coupons first (which is always a good rule of thumb at Wags), you won't have any beeps. It worked perfectly! I hope you all are able to find wipes in stock - this deal is all over the internet. So, hurry, hurry if you want wipes too!
