Food Storage on a Budget – April 2012

Planter’s Peanut Butter:

This is on sale at Albertson’s through Tuesday 2/$6.00. I used two $1 off 1 coupons found at this site and then used two Albertson’s double coupons from the Sunday paper to bring the total cost down to $2.oo for two jars.  Even better, when you buy two you get a $1 coupon back to spend on anything you would like at Albertson’s.  That makes the long term out of pocket only 50¢ per jar.  Time to stock up.


Food Storage on a budget – 2012

I keep thinking that I should get back to working on my food storage, but the couponing has not been terrific for me lately. Even over the holidays, that last year were fantastic for baking supplies, the deals were pretty ho-hum.  I thought I’d try again as this weeks’ prices on sugar from Albertson’s are really good.

There is a store coupon that brings the sugar from $4.29 /4 lb to $1.99.  I combined it with a printable coupon from smart source ($1.00/2) to get each 4lb bag for $1.49.  I think I’ll try to get 40 – 50 pounds.  I know this is above my $5.00 per week limit, but in these times of good-couponing-famine I think I need to strike while the iron’s hot.

The total should come to $14.99 for 40 pounds of sugar.
