Safeway Savings January 17, 2008!

Ohhh-eeee! I'm so excited and I just can't hide it! I did sooo well on my weekly Safeway shopping thanks to the return of my beloved $10 off 10 breakfast promo. Check out the middle of the new flyer for what qualifies. We can eat cheap breakfast for the rest of our life if these deals keep up!

1st order:
3 boxes Quaker Instant Oatmeal on sale $2 each (use 3 $1 coupons)
7 boxes Jimmy Dean Turkey sausage on sale for $2.50 each
Total before sales and coupons-$45
Total after sales, coupons and promo- $10.50
That's a savings of 77%

2nd order:
2 boxes Fiber One Cereal on sale for $2.50 each (use 1 $1/2 coupon)
2 boxes Life Cereal on sale for $2.50 each (use 1 $1/2 coupon)

2 Quaker Simple Harvest on sale for b1g1@ $5.29 (use 2 $1 coupons)
Total before sales & coupons- $48.20
Total after sales, coupons & promo- $6.29
That's a savings of 87% or average of $.63 an item!!!

So bottom line - I got $93.20 of groceries for $16.79! My dream of becoming like my hero Money Saving Mom is coming closer to fruition! Love and thanks to Crystal!

  1. Awsome Peggy! I just love saving! You had a fantastic week! I am atonished at how much money I have been saving. I decided to keep tract of the entire year and see how I do. Great job!

  2. Very inspiring! Did you break it into two orders so that you got the $10 off deal twice? Does it not take it off twice if it is one order? Thanks!

  3. Peggy,

    You are my hero! I think of you as Safeway Savin' Mom! Since that's the only deals store in my area I heartily look forward to your posts and you've saved me tons of money! Thank you! I would have missed this one if you hadn't broken it down for me!

  4. Michelle -Thanks! I am staying on track to see what my spending is as well - I'd like to get even better and track what it would have been vs. what I paid and see over the year the total savings - perhaps I'll get around to making that spreadsheet soon!

    Pieces - yes, I did 2 different orders to get the $10 twice! It won't work if you do it all in one order.

    Mrs. Jo- thank you for your kind words! I am so happy that moms can communicate in this way to help each other to do their best at saving and homemaking! It's great to have the blogging community!

  5. awesome! I'm searching and searching for that Tree Top coupon? Do you know where you found it? thanks! I'll be Safeway bound tomorrow!

  6. I didn't do to shabby at Safeway either. However, I was told that I could only get the deal once per household. Do you have more than one Safeway membership perchance?

  7. cc- I think it was from a Sunday paper a while ago.

    Em-a-Roo- the ad says "once per transaction" - and the cashier even said that you can do as many as you like in separate transactions!

  8. (I'm a newbie.) Is this Brick & Mortar Safeway or Safeway online? I live in Alaska and can't order online.
