Couponing for Community Update

I've decided to take part in the Couponing for Community event going on!  Here is day 1's finds.  It's mostly stuff I found around my house.  I did a Shaw's trip tonight so I will be adding stuff to this tomorrow.  I'm exhausted and going to sleep.  9:05 pm and going to bed....this is very much a first for me.

My big find tonight was cereal.  5 boxes of Raisin Bran at Shaw's (for the New England participant!) is $9.95 ($1.99 ea).  I printed off 2 $1.50/2 boxes from SmartSource.com (I think this coupon is now just $1/2).  So $7 OOP for 5 boxes of cereal - BUT you get a $4 CAT when you buy 5.  So $3 (.60 cents ea) for 5 boxes of cereal for the food pantry.  Not "free" - but cheap enough for me to be nice. 

If you are a Stop & Shop shopper, you can print off 2 .50/1 Wacky Mac coupons at SmartSource.com.  These are on sale this week for $1.  The coupon will double - leaving you with 2 bags of pasta for free.  You can also take great advantage of the Stop & Shop doublers that were in this week's circular. 

Many thanks to Kaley at Cha Cha Ching on a Shoestring for coming up with this fabulous idea!

Hey Becky. I have not seen that cereal CAT posted anywhere - do you have more details? Thanks!

Hey Aubrey - it's one of those "hidden" CATs that got printed off on the coupon papers a little while ago.

All Kellog's cereals:

Buy 3, Get a $2 CAT
Buy 4, Get a $3 CAT
Buy 5, Get a $4 CAT

Even though only a handful are on sale for $1.99 this week - it is all Kellogg's cereals. There are usually always coupons for these at Coupons.com & Smartsource.com RedPlum.com might have some too. Not sure right now...and of course, the paper prints them all the time.

Kaley - thanks for organizing! I love a good little grocery game...especially one that helps people and gets me to clean out my cabinets!

Hope your Stop & Shop card is hooked up to Upromise too because they have Wacky Mac coupons this month.

I just came across the Couponing for Community this morning and think it is a great idea! Looks like a great box of goods to share.
