I tried out the General Mills deal on shelf prices, though I added some extra things to make sure that I would get the Catalina. For four boxes of Total, two boxes of Cheerios and two GoGurts I spent .40 after my manufacturer coupons and $10 Catalina I earned from my first run. Not too shabby! I would love to go back and get more stuff but we'll see if I'm up to it.

The pork chops were a great deal- after the meat markdown coupons I ended up paying about $1.59 a pound. I will package them up using my Foodsaver and will freeze them  for future meals. Always, always check the meat section for markdowns- it is well worth it!

  1. Just an FYI. I discovered that it seems the best mark downs on clearance items, clearance produce and marked down meats is on Tuesdays at Shaws....
