First of all, you have to love a store that lets you used EXPIRED coupons – for up to three months after they expire! That is Cub Food’s policy – which can help compensate for the fact that they don’t double.
Everything you see, cost me less than $17! I can’t itemize for you as I can’t seem to find the receipt but soups were $.39, goldfish crackers were $1, Chunky soups were $1.25…and then comes the coupons! I had expired coupons for FREE hot dogs and FREE macaroni, coupons for all the soups — it was fun seeing the total drop!
Our Sentry store has Chunky Soup for $1.89 a can. The 20 cans you see would have cost $37.80…and the rest of the stuff would have to be added in. I love it when things are put into perspective, LOL!
A lot of these things have the Campbell’s labels for education seals on them…and when you spent $15+ you got a bonus 500 points! This is particularly good for us as Sarah is in a contest at her school…that 500 should jump her considerably into the lead
I DO think that dear husband has enough canned stuff for work to make it thru the winter…and the fish crackers are for the treat day at Sarah’s school (they came to $.50 a bag).
My pantry is only lacking in a few canned veggies, instant potatoes (great for thickening soups and gravies), chili beans and crackers.
Do you have an “inventory” that you try to maintain?
