Extreme Couponing Canada Shopping at Save on Foods, No Frills and Zellers, $33 Paid for $214 Worth of Items
Today was a rather large shopping trip day! I picked up items for myself and for Operation Christmas Donation 2011.
I did start off the day by picking up a the blockbuster deal at Old Navy in the wee hours this morning. Purchased 2 sweaters and received the free camera!
The staff were doing some fun activities and giving out bonus dollar coupons to customers in the checkout line. You got a coupon if you were able to present them with a random object they asked for, for example an Ontario driver’s license, US money, chapstick. I was able to get a hold of one when they asked if anyone had a “real calculator, not the kind on your phone!”. When couponing, I carry a calculator EVERYWHERE!
Then after breakfast and a quick nap I headed on over to Save on Foods to do some stacking as I found a few more Ritz Munchables coupons stashed away in my binder.
At Save on Foods I picked up:
3 x Delissio Pizza 2/$10 – (3) $2 coupons from Nestea canisters and (3) $2 coupons from Nestle chocolate boxes = $1 each
4 x Ritz Munchables 2/$4 – (4) $0.75 coupons from tearpads (N/A anymore) – $5 WUB 5 Kraft instore coupon = $0.25 each
3 x Ritz crackers 2/$4 – $5 WUB 5 Kraft instore coupon = $1 each
3 x Rice thins crackers 2/$4 – (3) $0.75 coupons from tearpads (N/A anymore) + above Kraft Coupons = $0.25 each
Coupons used: $27.25
Total paid: $7.75
After Save on Foods I headed over to No Frills for cheap tomato sauce and fish fillets! Was very pleased to find an entire freezer section full of the Bluewater fillets!
No Frills Breakdown:
8 x Bluewater fish fillets $2 – (8) $1 coupons from previous Redplum insert = $1 each!
4 x Hunts tomato sauce $1 – (2) $1 WUB 2 coupons from coupon booklets, N/A anymore = $0.50 each
2 x Hunts thick & Rich tomato sauce $1 – (2)$1 WUB Hunts tomato sauce and tomato paste from tearpads, N/A anymore= $0.50 each
2 x Hunts tomato paste $1 – coupons used with tomato sauce above = $0.50 each
Coupons used: $12

Lastly, I headed over to Zellers to pick up some deals using their Facebook Printable Coupon for $10 off when you spend $40 or more. The ultra and fibreguard bleaches are on sale for 2/$5 this week and can be used with the $1 Clorox bleach coupon from inserts a while back!
The regular bleach goes on sale for less, but the coupon is only valid on the more expensive bleaches and with the Facebook coupon I figured now is a better time then any to stock up.
Here’s the Zeller’s Breakdown:
10 x Clorox Bleach 2/$5 – (10) $1 coupons from previous insert, N/A anymore = $1.50 each
