extreme couponing canada

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

Subtotal: $35
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!

4 x Hunts tomato sauce $1 – (2) $1 WUB 2 coupons from coupon booklets, N/A anymore = $0.50 each

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.
