Cookware Scenarios

OK, I took a quick trip to Publix today just to get some prices on some items. You have a lot of options depending on the things you need. The best way to keep your OOP low, is to use a $5/$25 Rite Aid coupon. Call the Publix you plan on shopping at and make sure they are taking them before you go. There's not a lot of items on sale this week. But it can be very easy to rack up $25. If your not sure what you have coupons for, look in the 9-26 PG insert. Proctor & Gamble only come out with inserts once or twice a month and this is the only place you can get coupons for their items beside their mailers. If you don't have any of their mailers yet, then go through your PG insert and see what you can do.

For instance, Tide is on sale this week for $5.99 and there is a $1/1 coupon in the 9-26 PG. The Tide Stain Release tabs are $6.99 but there is $3/1 in the same insert. You could buy 2 Tide detergents and 2 Tide Stain Release tabs for a total of $25.96 (before tax). After using the $5/$25 Rite Aid and 2 $3/1 Tide Stain Release and 2 $1/1 Tide your total would only be $12.96 (before tax).

If you need any polish spray, now is a good time to get it. The Swiffer Dust & Shine is priced right now $3.79. Use the B1G1 and $.50/1 coupons from the 9-26 PG. You could buy 4 of the Swiffer Dust & Shine, 1 Tide Stain Release and 1 Downy liquid fabric softner (smaller bottle priced at $3.19). You total would be $25.34. Using the $5/$25, 2 B1G1 Swiffer Dust & Shine, 2 $.50/1 (will double) Swiffer Dust & Shine (you should be able to do this since the B1G1 coupon attaches to the free item), 1 $3/1 Tide Stain Release, and 1 $1/1 Downy. Your total now would be $6.76!

Maybe that can help you get started. The key is to try and get items with the highest value coupon available to lower your total.

Remember, you have until 10-17 to do this. And you have to purchase it all in one transaction. The coupons from the 9-26 PG do not expire until 10-31. I may wait until Monday when the sneak peak in available to see if anything else goes on sale.
