The joys of a kid-less shopping trip..

by Melody on January 26, 2011

After a LONG day of early-rising kids and ZERO overlapping naps, my husband watched our boys while I ran out to Fred Meyer to score some crazy cheap coffee creamer and regain my sanity.. 

I promise I bought more than just coffee creamer.  And I promise I left some on the shelf.  I just really wanted to share with you my fabulous deal.  I just knew that after the day I had, there was going to be no creamer left.  Not only was there tons, but my FAVORITE flavor, Peppermint Mocha, was sitting there calling my name..

Transaction #1
(4) Coffee-mate creamer 16 oz $1.50

Subtotal: $6
- (2) $1/1 printable
- (2) .75/1 printable
Paid $2.50 + received $3 catalina

* I also received a $1/4 Coffee-mate creamer coupon from the catalina machine, which prompted me to do a second transaction.

Transaction #2
(4) Coffee-mate creamer 16 oz $1.50

Subtotal: $6
- $1/4 coupon from previous transaction
- $3 catalina from previous transaction
Paid $2 + received $3 catalina

Bottom line: I paid $4.50 for eight creamers, plus I still have a $3 catalina to use.  After factoring in the catalina, this is like paying 19 cents each. Madness.

If my kids wake up early again tomorrow, I will be ready.

I got the 1/30 Red Plum inserts in the mail today and there is a $1/2 Coffee-mate coupon that will match nicely with this deal if you don't have enough printables.

Erin – That's awesome, I'll have to head back for more. The expiration dates on these are FOREVER so you can really stock up.

Addie – I saw that on the bottle, hooray! I wonder if it won't be as special now that I can get it all the time? No way.. :)

Do you know if the sale only runs through Saturday?

According to Frugal Chic Living, it runs through 2/1, so we can use the coupons coming on Sunday!
