Meijer is running a great deal this week with Ragu pasta sauce and Creamette pasta. If you buy one jar of Ragu sauce you get one box of Creamette pasta free. I went today to try this out and to see if you could get two free boxes when you buy two jars and it worked!! The best part is that the sauce is on sale for 1.38 each, plus you can use the .50 off 2 coupon from the 11/16 Redplum insert.
So if you buy two sauces and two boxes of pasta the total will be 2.76 (after the free pasta comes off) and you'll get 1.00 off with the coupon (after .50 coupon doubles to 1.00), so you'll pay 1.76 for two sauces and two pastas!! So if you use one sauce and one pasta per meal that's only .88 per meal!!!
Just add some free or cheap veggies from previous deals and you've got two really inexpensive lunches or dinners!!!

You're total before any discounts will be around 27.57 (guessing on the price of mascara). You'll then get your 5.00 discount making it 22.57. Then if you use all of the above mentioned coupons you'll get another 18.79 off, leaving only 3.78 to pay!!! For 7 products, that's a great price!! It comes out to .54 a product!!

This weeks coupons should be the last sets we get in 2008!!! There are no scheduled inserts for the other two weeks of the year, due to the holidays. So this Sunday we should be receiving 1 Smartsource, 1 Redplum and 1 P&G insert.
I saw a couple of great deals, first Daisy sour cream coupons for .50 off 1. At Kroger those are on sale for 1.00, so when the coupon doubles they will be free (sale may end Sunday, so you may want to run out and get it that day!)
Also, there is supposed to be a .50 off any 1 4-pack Cottonelle toilet paper. If you get that one, you'll get free toilet paper at Kroger, as they have 4-packs for .99.
I saw lots of coupons for Betty Crocker, Campbell's, Pillsbury, Kellogg's and the usual P&G products. So stock up now and enjoy two weeks off of clipping!!!

Remember Meijer only doubles two identical coupons per order, so if you have more than two coupons, be sure to separate them into different orders so all of your coupons will double!!

Just A Note:
I made a quick look over Meijer's ad online and didn't see a whole lot. They have Bob Evan's Frozen Breakfasts on sale 1/2 price and with coupons that could be a good deal. Also certain Lysol cleaning products are 1/2 price, and again you could use coupons on that for a good deal.
I will be shopping on Friday this week, so after that I'll know a little more about what's out there. I should have my list ready sometime tomorrow, and I'll share that so you can see what I'm planning to purchase.
Other than that, you can stop over at CVS for Palmolive dish soap .24 after coupon and ECB, a free bottle of Smart Water (after ECB) and a Garnier Shampoo or Conditioner free after coupon and ECB.
Have a great week!!!
PS: I'm working on a Thrifty Thanksgiving post, as I've now decided to undertake my first full Thanksgiving meal for my husband's family. This should be interesting!!!

Here it is!! My Kroger haul for today!! I ended up going to two Krogers (only about 8 miles apart and since I only paid 1.86 for gas yesterday I could afford to visit two!!!) and did a total of 3 orders. They are doing a Mega Event where you get 5.00 off your order automatically when you buy 10 participating products. So basically you get an extra .50 off each item when you buy 10. You're allowed to do 3 sets per transaction which is 30 items. So I did a two orders with 30 items each and one order with 20 items for a total of 80 items. I also found a few other great deals as well. Go ahead and make your guess now as to how much all this cost me. I'll reveal the total at the end!!

*Not part of Mega Event - Kroger Saltines .97 and 1 gallon of Organic Milk for 1.00 (expires today) which I plan to make homemade yogurt with and probably some pudding!!
Total of These Items = 16
Total Amount of Items All Together is 93. Regular Price for all of these items would total 220.73 and I paid...........

Let me tell ya, on trick or treat night, the stores are empty!!! We stopped by Target and Meijer after we did one hour of the two hour trick or treat time and found both stores eerily quiet!! But alas, at Meijer we got a few more deals before the week was over. Here's what we got (I did one order and my husband did another):
*2 Steamfresh Frozen Vegetables. We used one 1.00 off 2 Meijer Frozen Food Insert Coupon and two .35 off 1 paper coupons.
*2 Taco Bell Salsas. We used two 1.50 off 1 Meijer Mealbox Coupons
*4 Jell-O Boxes (I forgot my coupons for these, but they're still worth it with the catalina deal)
*2 Fleischman's 3pk yeast packs. We used two .45 off 1 coupons.
*2 Velveeta Shells and Cheese. We used one 2.00 off 2 Meijer Mealbox Coupon.
*3 Johnson's Buddies Soaps. We used one 3.00 off 3 coupon.
*2 Aunt Millie's Whole Grain Muffins. We used two .50 off 1 coupons.
*2 Breyers Ice Creams. We used one 1.00 off 2 Meijer Frozen Food Insert Coupon and two .50 off 1 coupons. (these are not pictured as they are refreezing as I type!)
*2 jars of Cinnamon.
Plus we used a total of 5.50 in Catalinas from previous orders. My husband paid 1.03 for his order and I paid 2.63 for a total of only 3.66!! And if that wasn't good enough, we got back another 5.00 in Catalina's, a 3.00 off 3 Johnson's coupon and a 4.00 off 20.00 in general merchandise coupon (good for Christmas presents!!)
Just to recap, because I was pretty proud of this one!! We paid 3.66 and got back 5.00!! We came out ahead 1.34 and brought home all these products!! Now that's what I'm talking about!!
