Great deal!

Thanks to Katie's recent post about a great deal with Safeway stores, I headed over there yesterday. The special was for when 5 items of Sara Lee, Hillshire, Jimmy Dean, and Ball Park were bought, a coupon would print for $10 off your next purchase of any size. I was planning on stocking our freezer before leaving on the trip, so when we got back we'd have something to eat for dinner! Of course, after I buy my initial purchase to get the coupon, the cashier's register is not working and nothing prints out, so the manager handed me a $10 bill. Hey, that works! I decide to come back after church that night so they'd have time to get their system back up & running. I bought as much meat as I thought our freezer would hold for now, divided it up into a couple transactions. The 16 year old cashier looked shocked when I told her I should get back a $10 coupon as it was printing it out. She asked how I knew that, and I told her there were signs saying it would happen. For a moment there I think she thought I was psychic! :)

Our store doesn't carry Sara Lee breads, which I was kind of hoping for, but that's ok, we stocked up on meat! The crazy thing was that all the meat was either 2 for $5 or 2 for $4! Good thing we eat pork!

2 packs of Ball Park hot dogs, 1 box of turkey sausage patties, 5 containers of lunch meat, 2 rolls of sausage, 1 package of bacon, 1 package of cocktail weiners, 4 packages of kielbasa, and 3 Sara Lee pumpkin pies (on clearance from the holidays, so only $3.50 each in contrast to the regular $8-9 price). Total worth regular price: $106! Total worth sales price: $85! Total out of pocket: $27.00!

I still have one more $10 coupon, and will go back to buy products that we need later on. So, that will had $10 more to the savings. Praise the Lord for His providing a great deal!

Wow!!! Too cool. I am glad you were able to take advantage of that deal. I am jealous we don't have one either :(
