HyVee 3 Day Sale

Advertisement

Its Thursday afternoon and I'm exhausted. I don't want to cook dinner...maybe we should have takeout. This is a COMMON thought that runs through my head....unfortunately my budget doesn't have room for that kind of thinking.

Enter HyVee!

HyVee is having a 3 Day Sale beginning today that includes a rotisserie chicken for $3.99. If I pair this with the Green Giant vegetables I have in my freezer that I purchased for $0.49 and the Rhodes freezer dinner rolls that I purchased for $0.25 and maybe mash up some potatoes... I've got a healthy dinner for my family without having to do much cooking (or dirtying up my kitchen) at all for under $5! MUCH cheaper than going out to eat.

A couple of other good deals at HyVee that are part of their 3 Day Sale:

$1.38/lb HyVee brand butter I didn't get in on the last deal thanks to germ warfare... so this makes me feel a little better. I'm going to stock up for Holiday Baking...I'm no Paula Dean, but I do like to have butter on hand.

Yoplait Yogurt 10/$4 This is a good price at $0.40/ea ... if you buy 12 and use 2 $0.50/6 coupons from recent inserts or printed from HERE then you reduce the price to $0.32/ea. If you do this deal don't forget to rinse and save the lids and then mail them in! Yoplait's 'Save Lids to Save Lives' campaign goes through the end of the year. For each lid mailed in Yoplait will donate $0.10 to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

DelMonte Fruit Naturals 10/$10 If you subscribe to All You Magazine or have purchased one at WalMart recently...you will find there is a $1/1 coupon that will make these FREE. You can also use the $1/5 from the 9/20 Red Plum insert...or if you were lucky enough to have printed one off of RedPlum.com a few weeks ago you will have a $1/2 that you can use.

Be sure to check out their flyer from yesterday's River City Pulse to see what other deals you find....then check back and let us know what you find!

I have an entire section on my personal blog, SuperJenn.com that will give you tips on How to Coupon: http://www.superjenn.com/category/saving/how-to/

in this area you will also find a post that shows how I organize my coupons with a binder and clear plastic inserts: http://www.superjenn.com/so-you-have-some-coupons-now-what/

I really like the binder method, it works really well for me. I occassionally give them away at SuperJenn, of all the giveaways I've done those are by far the most popular...and I've given away Wiis!!!

madman (Anonymous) says… I really appreciate the feedback. Beginners luck I guess, believe it or not this the first week that I have ever used a coupon. From reading this blog and help from my sister I have finally decided to try it. So far this week I have saved $28.62 on stuff that I need already for need for my family. I am totally blown away. I was so scared to try it, I don't know why.

I have a question about how you organize your coupons so that you get the best use of the coupons and time? Any tips on that would be appreciated. I did find this website mygrocerydeals.com which has all the sales for Target, HyVee and Dillions. You can click on the item and make a grocery list from each store so you can stay organized when shopping. Maybe there is already a blog about this you can direct me to…. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I am a Grocery Gamer. It is a website and they actually have lists that match the coupons with the sales for stores. It is a service you pay for and one I think is well worth it.

The Grocery Game lists use the insert dates from the paper to tell you which coupon to use. For example, if oatmeal is on sale, they will tell you the date of the insert found in the Sunday paper. There are usually 2 - Smart Source & Red Plum. Proctor and Gamble also put one out monthly.

Some people like the leave the inserts intact & clip the coupon as needed. They usually stick the insert in a folder or something.

I file mine in a box with index cards because I like to have mine clipped and ready to go at any time.

Here are a couple of good spots for general info about couponing to help get you started. http://terismessageboard.thegrocerygame.com/showthread.php?t=63542 http://terismessageboard.thegrocerygame.com/showthread.php?t=62

Nice job for starters. I have never understood why some are so against saving money. As you have found out it pays off.

There are different methods to organizing your coupons. What volume of coupons you are handling or if you are planning on using an online service may make the choice for you as to what method you use. It would be helpful to know if you are just couponing for a small family or a large one. I am sure with a little info there are some on here who can give you the information you are looking for. An example is I use a small 12 partition plastic expandable file that that has the categories labeled but isn't much larger than a legal size envelope. That works for me but it would never work for a larger volume of coupons.

Jenn - yesterday must have been a rotisserie kind of day, because that's what we had for dinner. I made a wonderful rice and summer squash casserole and tossed a salad. Great easy meal for us on hockey nights.

Oh and the Yoplait whips are the bomb! Yummy!

Madman ... I'm glad that worked for you at Dillon's...technically it shouldn't have since it was two manufacturer's coupons for the same product ...but hey...I'm not one to say "Oh...let me give you your money back"...LOL

Just didn't want someone else to be upset if it didn't work for them :)

madman (Anonymous) says… It was any brand and I did it today and Dillions allowed it.Maybe they shouldn't have? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Not sure but if they allowed it then it must be okay. I printed it out. It says manufacturer's coupon but it also says it is from the Midwest Dairy Association so maybe since it isn't brand specific, it technically isn't a manufacturer's coupon?

Cool deal you got with the yogurt. :)

madman (Anonymous) says… Dillions has the Yoplait for .60 each. Then if you upload .50 off for six on cellfire to your Dillions card, print off the .50 off coupon for 6 Yoplait @ coupons.com (doubles to $1) and .75 coupon for any brand of yogart @ coupons.com (doubles to $1) you get all 6 for $1.32. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Is the $.75/off any brand of yogurt a store coupon rather than a manufacturer coupon? If it is a manufacturer coupon, it won't work if you are just buying 6 Yoplaits because you can't stack manufacturer coupons. Maybe if you bought 7, it could work.

The cellfire (and don't forget Shortcuts!) are stackable but not doubled. Those are handy to have on your card.
