Tuesday evening, my sis-in-law and I took off for Albertsons. We had put together a huge run. We had gone through the Albertsons ad the week before and figured out our stock up deals and then got on to ebay to find the coupons we were needing. Yes, we purchased coupons from ebay. Once we knew we were able to get the coupons we needed, we called the store and placed a special order for each of us.
We have built up a great relationship with the store manager and they do an amazing job at having everything ready for us when we arrive.
Here is what I purchased this last run...
70 boxes of Ronzoni Garden Delight Pasta (combination of spaghetti, rotini, and penne)...FREE!!
20 jars Peter Pan peanut butter
40 jars Ragu pasta sauce
50 bottles of Wishbone dressing, variety
6 Pop Tarts
6 Sprayway glass cleaner
2 Orbit gum (needed as a filler)
3 pints of Starbucks ice cream (not pictured)
My out of pocket was $58.53, my savings was $562.55...making the shelf cost for all of these items $621.08. That, my friends, is a 90.58% savings!!
Do you notice that some of these items are in boxes?! When you special order you get your items in cases. It actually makes storing these items easier because I can just stack them in the garage next to the shelving unit that I'm already using for my overstock.
I can't wait for our next stock up deal. It's nice that I actually have items that I can cross off of my grocery list for at least the next 6 months...probably longer!
