Iron Shopper Week 2

ironshopper Iron Shopper Week 2

Welcome to week TWO of the Iron Shopper Challenge!  Every Monday I will set up this post where you can share  and brag about the deals you got at the stores you shop.  On Sunday morning I will close this thread and name the winner of the Iron Shopper Challenge for the week.  The winner will be selected based on the number of votes their entry receives.  So make sure to make your entry appealing to get people to vote for it.  Share your deal with friends and family to get more votes too.  Competing is OK but having fun is what’s important.  I want this to be a forum where you can share and brag about the deals you have gotten.

After Aimee’s win last week, who will be the winner this time around?  Remember that it’s free to play and you get to share your deals plus you also get a chance to win a $20 prize.  For a list of the rules and how-to’s check here.   I will provide you with the link to share at the bottom of your comment in case you have problem figuring that out.

Have fun!

    I got all this for $4.34, including tax. Actually, if you want to get technical, it was more like $15,004.34, and the $15,000 for the little guy was a far better bargain than the $4.34 for food :) I will also use this for the $10 Kraft rebate, so it is actually a $5.66 MONEYMAKER! I made $.75 on each bottle of salad dressing (1 bottle wasn’t available to get it’s picture taken), so I used that to pay for the coupon-less items like milk and bell peppers (each bag was marked down to less than $1 — made some super yummy stuffed bell peppers the next night :) ) Here’s the breakdown in case anyone is interested:

    Transaction 1:
    4 bottles of Kraft Dressing $1.89 each, $7.56
    1 bag of bell peppers $.70 (to eat up the overage from coupons)

    -$4 — $.55 off Kraft dressing (doubled to $1)
    -$4 — $1 off Kraft Dressing Meijer Mealbox coupon

    Total: $.26 OOP

    Receieved $3 Kraft Dressing Catalina

    Transaction 2:

    Same as above, except bag of peppers was $.63 instead for $.19 OOP

    Transaction 3:

    1 box Kraft Macaroni and Cheese $1.29
    -$1.29 Facebook free coupon
    1 package Oscar Mayer Turkey Bacon $2.68
    -$2.68 Kraft First Taste free coupon
    2 packages Oscar Mayer Roast Beef, $5
    -$4 facebook coupon
    2 boxes Kraft Pasta Salad $1.98
    -$1/2 Meijer Mealbox coupon
    2 bottles Kraft dressing
    -$2 Meijer Mealbox coupons $3.78
    -$.55 Kraft dressing coupon (doubled to $1)

    Bag of lemons $1.05
    Bag of Zucchini $.19 (oops! he must have rung it in wrong — don’t know how to go back to get it fixed . . .)
    Bread $1.89
    Milk $4

    -$6 Kraft dressing catalinas

    Total: $3.89 OOP

    Received $1 Kraft Dressing catalina, which I used for the last bag of peppers.

    Send in for $10 Kraft Rebate = $5.66 Moneymaker!

    So that’s about (hard to tell how much the peppers would have been if not marked down) $45 for -$5.66, a savings of %113!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE Meijer!

    I got this deal at Redner’s. Marcal tissues & 4 pk. toilet paper were on sale for $1. I had 20 coupons for the tissues $1/1 and 20 coupons for the toilet paper $2/1. I purchased all 40 coupons on ebay for .99 cents( and free shipping!). In addition I had four more tissue coupons from my Sunday coupon inserts. Everything for just the cost of buying the coupons – .99 cents.( 24 boxes of tissues and 20 packs of toilet paper. I’ve given away some to my Mom already before I took the picture)

    • sorry for the spelling mistakes… I was in a rush

      • Mercedes says:

        holy cow! buy diapers for me too!

        • *Amanda says:

          I have more at my house Mercedes! Let us know when you’re in NY. You can come over and go shopping in my sons closet! Over the last 2 weeks MC and I have driven all over the place to avoid depleting any one RA. My 6mn old son, 2 close friends children and 3 baby shower gifts are all taken care of. I wont post this as an “Iron Shopper”- But you all get the point from Mary Catherine’s post above.

    (less two $2 off any Armour-All product HERE)
    (less $3 off any 2 Armour-All products TARGET COUPON)

    Total Spent: $11.52 GROCERIES

    Notes: I bought the Shout, Olay and ArmorAll because I had an “overage” on these by using manufacturers coupons with Target coupons/gift card promotions; this overage lowered the cost of things we’ll actually use, and gave me a few more things to donate. I haven’t tried Smart One meals before, but the next few weeks will be crazy around here, and we’ll have people in and out of our house, so having these meals in the freezer (as well as the lunch meat) will give us a lot of quick meals when needed.

    I stopped by two stores after work yesterday..
    My first stop was Target to pick up some cleaning supplies. There were a couple really great deals and there were some welcome surprises hanging out in the $1.00 bins as well. It threw my deal quotient off some but in the long run it was the better deal for us.

    On my first transaction, I got

    2 bottles of Scrubbing Bubbles Extend-A-Clean $8.69 each
    1 Scrubbing Bubbles Gel Toilet Cleaner $3.99
    1-Scrubbing Bubbles Fresh Brush 2 in 1 Starter $6.29

    I used
    2- $5.00 off Extend A Clean mf coupons
    2- $3.00 Target Extend A Clean Coupon
    1 B1 Gel Get1 2-in1 Starter kit Free

    I payed $6.72 out of pocket and will submit for SC Johnson $5.00 rebate for a total cost of $1.72 for this transaction.

    My second transaction contained
    10 pkgs of Goody Polly Bands my partner uses in his long neat ponytail every day. He uses 6 of these one time use bands everyday so whenever I find them inexpensively like I did on this trip I stock up. These were $1.00 per package=$10.00
    I also got
    3 hair claws & 2pkg smaller claws for me as well also in the dollar bin. $1.00 each=$5.00
    3 bottles of Shout Laundry Stain treatment.@ $2.24 each=$6.72
    2-6pk ribbon @ $1.00 each

    I used 2-$1.00 Target Shout coupons
    2-.75c mfg Shout coupons
    1-.55 mfg Shout peelie coupon

    My total was $21.03 I will also submit this for the SC Johnson rebate for $5.00 making this transaction $16.03.

    My total for both transactions before coupons was $54.09, I payed $27.75 oop and will receive $10.00 in rebates making this a net of $17.75 for 25 products.

    Then I stopped at my favorite grocery store where they double coupons up to 99cents each.
    I bought:
    4 Warm Delights brownies $1.99 reg. $1.75 sale
    10 bottles of Bulls Eye BBQ sauce $2.58 reg $1.29 sale
    4-International Delights Irish Cream coffee creamers $1.89 reg $1.50 sale
    2-Benedryl Itch Sticks $2.49 ea
    4-pkg al fresco Buffalo Chicken sausage $4.49 ea reg $2.49 sale

    I used:
    3-.75c Warm Delights brownie coupons
    1-.50c Warm Delights brownie coupon
    10-$1.00 Bulls Eys BBQ coupon
    2-B1G1 Free International Delight coupons
    2-.55c. International Delight coupons
    1-Benedryl $5.00 off any 2 coupon
    4-$1.00 al fresco sausage coupons
    1-$2.00 OYNO Catalina coupon
    1-$4.00 OYNO Catalina coupon

    My total before all combined coupons and sale price was $64.57 and my total out of pocket was $9.49.

    All combined transactions, I spent $36.81 out of pocket and will receive $10.00 on the SC Johnson rebate for a net total of $26.81 for $118.59 mfg retail total on 44 products for a 77.3% total savings.
