$56.46 Worth of Freebies at Giant - Carbs Edition!

Remember me talking about being a crazed little squirrel, stocking up for winter and a December baby? I wasn't kidding, ladies and gents. Today I did a run to Giant with my family, and besides our usual milk and produce, I also stocked up on some Quaker instant oatmeal at $1.88/box (originally $3.99/box!) after coupons, some Barilla pasta sauce at $0.90/jar (originally $2.59/jar), and a few other items. Tip: If you're picking up the Quaker instant oatmeal, get the boxes marked with "2 Extra!", meaning 12 pouches (18 oz.) instead of 10 pouches (15 oz.). They both ring up as 2/$5, so you might as well get the most bang for your buck.

Catalina deal alert: My checkout coupons printed out a Catalina offer: Buy any two Skippy All Natural Peanut Butter Spreads between 09/07 and 11/1, and receive $1 off your next shopping order. If I hit the Skippy All Natural on a sale with a coupon, this $1 Catalina would be gravy. :)

But - truly, isn't this always the case? - today's freebies were the most fun part. Through a series of events, I ended up with 13 copies of the 08/23 insert, way more than I usually have. Thus, I had 13 coupons for $0.50 off Barilla Piccolini pasta - just one of the freebies. I also scooped up a few Reese's King Size freebies, originally mentioned in this past Giant post, and paid $9.20 after coupons for 10 Kellogg's products, which will qualify me for the Kellogg's Fuel for School Rebate.

Sum? I'll net a profit of $0.36 for $56.46 of the free groceries. To see more details, click on the picture below to see it largest! Click here to see our post with the list of all of this week's Giant coupon matchups.

By the way, if I'm invited to a potluck this fall at your house, don't be surprised if I bring pasta salad or Peanut Butter Cocoa Krispies treats. ;-)
