Great Deals and Easter Jars

For Easter, I wanted to make something cute to hand out to my neighbors. Layla had the idea of Easter Jars. We used ModPodge to glue decorative paper on the top of the lids and give it a nice shine. Then I also glued ribbon around the rings. And last of all, filled the jars with lots of chocolatey goodness. I'm excited to hand them out! 



I definitely had to take advantage of Albertson's cereal deal this week. These cereals are $1.57 a box when you buy 2. Or pay $2.07 when you buy one. I had two coupons for $1/2. And then I bought one more box at the regular price, to total 5 boxes of cereal and I'll tell you why in a second. 
My total came to $8.35. 
Then I applied my two coupons. My new total is $6.35.
A Catalina coupon for $5.00 off my next grocery order was triggered when I bought 5 boxes of Post cereal. That's equivalent to making my order only $1.35. That's .27 CENTS PER BOX!
Anyway, I immediately went and bought a bag of flour for $4.99 with my coupon--and got a penny back. 
It was a good shopping trip.

Awesome! I did good by buying brownie mix for 61 cents. James already baked a batch.

Silly question ... how do you know when you are going to get a printable coupon back, like your $5.00 off one?

Those jars are super cute. I may have to copy you for my Primary class. Way to go on the grocery deals. I love paying so little for so much.

Um, yeah, you need to hold a seminar on how you get all these good deals. That is amazing.

Andrew said...

Yes, Megan did seem to get worse instead of better. Bummer, dude. :) I love Danny also. Adam is a VERY good singer. Amazing, actually. I just don't want him to win, which I probably will. I think someone else deserves to win more than him. Did you know that he was in Wicked?

My mom is obsessed with Cranberry Almond Crunch. She would be so jealous.
