Here's what I scored based on Gina's scenario:
5 boxes of cereal, using this coupon and a few other recent MFC's
1 bag Nature Valley Nut Clusters, using this $1.00 printable
2 boxes Nature Valley Granola Bars, using MFC coupons
2 boxes Fruit Roll-ups, using MFC coupons
Total OOP: $5.37
It was fun to watch the register go from $33, taking 2 $5 off 5 amounts off for the Safeway sale, then subtract doubled MFC's and Cellfire/Shortcut coupons. The cashier said, "Wow!" and I responded, "that's why I'm here with my coupons!"
Now if I can just get to Target for another cereal sale, we'll have enough cereal for the year?!
