Gas prices


All starred items are priced at what I would consider a good deal and a buy it price. 

This week's shop was at Edmonton Southside. 

All sale prices are valid until closing on March 29, 2015. 


Free Kellogg's Cereal This Week

Cereal can get very expensive, especially in a house with six people.

There are two ways that I buy cereal.  At Costco on sale, or when I can find a deal with points or free item coupons in the box. 


We generally stick to high fibre, low sugar cereals like Mini- Wheats, Honey Nut Cheerios and granola. 

About twice a year my kids will get Froot Loops or some other sugar cereal that I deem more like a snack than a nutritious breakfast.

Kellogg's is running a promotion when you buy select cereals, you receive a free breakfast item such as banana, strawberries, granola bars or a box of cereal.

You get your free item, simply by following the directions inside the box and ordering the product of your choice online. You will be mailed a free item coupon in 2-4 weeks.

I always look for the cereal on sale and try to use coupons to buy it. This week I found the best deal at Co-Op.

Select Kellogg'c cereal is 3 for $9.99. 


This week on Checkout 51, there is a buy 2 Mini Wheat's and get $1.50 off coupon. You can use it three times instead of the usual one time offer. 


I also have an app called Coupgon, that allows you to save money right at the till but it can only be used at certain grocery stores. In my area that store is Co-Op.

Coupgon has a $2 coupon on Froot Loops this week. This is my transaction:

4 boxes of Mini Wheats  $13.32

2 Boxes of Froot Loops $6.66

Used 2 x $2 Coupgon rebates at the till, saved $4  Paid $15.98

Submitted my receipt to Check Out 51 and saved another $3, total now  $12.98


I couldn't find the Froot Loops with free breakfast coupons at Co Op, so just my Mini-Wheats had pins for free cereal. I will order 4 coupons for free Mini- Wheats worth up to $6 each.

This means my cereal was essentially free, when I receive $24 worth of Mini-Wheat coupons in the mail.

There is no household limit for the free product coupons and you have until July 31. 2015 to order your free item.

Here are the products available to order:

Mini-Wheats, Rice Krispies, Frosted Flakes, All Bran, Froot Loops, Nutri-Grain Soft Bakes Bars, 2 lb of Bananas, Fresh strawberries, or 1 Litre of milk.

Free Milk at Safeway


This week at Safeway, when you spend $30 you get a free 4L of Lucerne milk, or 1.75L of Earth's Own, So Nice or So Good non-dairy beverage.

Sometimes when this deal happens at Safeway, I struggle to find $30 worth of good deals to buy in order to qualify for the free milk. 

My policy is not to pay extra for groceries in order to get points or free items. That just defeats the purpose, don't you think?

Today, I had no problem finding good sales to get to $30. This is what I bought:


It has been a really long time since I have seen a decent price on KD. My stock up price is $.50 cents a box.

A couple weeks ago Rexall had a weekend deal for .59 cents. Costco no longer carries the cases of KD, so I rely on this deal at Safeway.  I bought 3 cases.


Buddig lunch meat regularly goes on sale for $.99 cents at Safeway and I like to keep a variety of sandwich meat in the freezer for lunches. I stocked up on these today as well.

I noticed select flavours of  Oikos and Liberte were 50% off, so I got a couple tubs of yogurt as well. At 50%, this is cheaper than Costco.


Another great deal at Safeway this week is Tostitos at 4/$10 and Kellogg's Jumbo Cereals at $5.99.


To use the coupon,click on the link to print or save in your photo album on your phone and simply show it to the cashier. The cashier needs to see the PLU number in the top right corner.

6 Cake Mixes & 6 Frostings for $10


Save On Foods is celebrating 100 years and have had some fantastic weekend deals.

This weekend you can buy Betty Crocker Cake Mixes for $.69 cents and frostings for $.99.


While I prefer to make my own from scratch cakes, these are perfect for last minute desserts or for the budding 10 year old baker in my house!

This way I can still encourage her cooking skills with less mess in the kitchen. 

I bought six mixes and six frostings for $10.08 and saved $29.40. 


There is a great selection of cakes & frostings on sale but this deal ends tonight.

Target Sales - Week 5


More reductions took place this week, as Target continues with liquidation sales. 

After a conversation with one of the staff members, I learned there were five truck deliveries just to the Sherwood Park store this week.

While some shelves are empty, others are packed full with more stock still waiting in the back.

This is good news if you've been waiting for prices to go down. There are some Targets that are quite empty, while other stores are full.  

Last week all the scanners were removed from our local store as they weren't always accurate. This week the scanners are back, I'm sure because the staff have other things to do then check prices for customers all day! 

Here are the current sales as of March 5, reductions just took place today.  



Costco - March 2


This week at Costco I would consider "baby" week. There are great sales on formula, diapers, wipes and baby clothing.

Target Sales - Week 4


I've been avoiding Target for the last couple weeks as I am still quite sad about their departure.

Lame? Yes, I know.

But to be fair, I scored a lot of great deals at Target, the staff at my store were pretty awesome & I love the product lines they carry.

So as I work through my stages of grief, I did go in for you guys so you would know if there are any good deals yet. 

Target is still putting out new stock. In my store, there is Easter candy, a large make up display in the front and summer stock in the back. These products were not in the store a few weeks ago.  

Sales are now 20-40% off and there are a lot more empty shelves.  

Right now I would say the best deals are on Easter products, gift cards & wrap, movies/music and select cosmetic lines that only Target carries.  

You must keep in mind that even at 20% off, that's comparable to a sale at other stores. Know your prices and do the math before you buy.

Superstore Deals - Cheese, K-Cups & Cookware

This week there are some great deals to be had in Superstore on Armstrong Cheese, Folgers K-Cups, and cook/bake ware. 



Armstrong cheese already fits my $1 per 100g price, but there is also a $.75 cent coupon hanging in front of the cheese or on the coupon board when you come into the store. This brings the price to $.89 cents for 100 grams- definite stock up time.



I stock up on K-cups when they are $.50 cents or less each. Look for the Folgers Black Silk & Vanilla Biscotti for $7.48. Use the Checkout 51 rebate for $2.50 and pay just $.39 cents for each K Cup. If you like a dark cup of coffee, the Black Silk is perfect! 


Don't forget to have a look in the kitchen section, there is 50% off on Anchor Hocking, Corningware & Baker's Secret products. 


All sales end at closing on February 19, 2015.

Target Liquidation - Day 1


I stopped in quickly yesterday to see what the Target liquidation looked like. Despite a snowstorm outside, the parking lot was nearly full and the store was very busy!

Discounts ranged from 10-30%. I've seen sale prices better then this liquidation, yet people were buying carts full of items! 

Anyway, here are the discounts: 


I wanted to give you a visual of why you need to shop smart during liquidation sales.

 The top picture is Charmin on liquidation at Target. It works out to $.33 cents for a single roll. The bottom picture is Charmin at Canadian Tire this week- it's $.18 cents a roll. My stock up price is anything under $.25 cents for a single roll. 


In my Target there were still clearance items from before the liquidation. If your lucky enough to find clearance stickers, then you apply the extra liquidation price on top of the clearance price.

For example: These girls clothes were on clearance for 50% and because the liquidation is 20% off the whole girls department, these clearance items are now 70% off.



From what I saw, the only items I would buy now is clearance with extra liquidation discounts, birthday/anniversary greeting cards for the year since it's unusual to find them on sale, and Valentine's items that I still need, since that department is now 20% off.

Redbox Leaving Canada


I received a text message today from Redbox: 



I almost cried.

Why is it so hard to keep decent businesses in Canada that actually save us money?! Yes, Target- I'm talking about you too! 

I am hoping this isn't a new trend as our dollar continues to drop.

There really isn't much information out there on the "why" yet. I found one line buried in a business report.



Since we live on an acreage & pay for the amount of data we download, Redbox was a great way to see a movie for cheap.

Looks like we have a week left to rent some movies and cry into our home made popcorn! 

We will miss you Redbox! 

15% Day - Feb 3, 2015


15% Tuesday, the first Tuesday of the month at Save On Foods, is an excellent time to do a grocery stock up. I've highlighted a few good deals that I will be taking advantage of.  

You need to spend $50 to get 15% off your entire bill. To calculate a good price, I take the sale price and subtract 15% from it. 


Almonds are cheaper than Costco with the 15%. My stock up price for flour is $1 per kg. For K- cups, anything under $.50 cents is what I'm looking for.


I never pay more than $.50 a can for Campbell's soup, and no more than $1 for tuna. 


Although I could get Clif bars cheaper at Costco, I like to chose my own flavours. At $.85 a bar, these are a perfect protein snack for my growing boys. 

The Cottonelle works out to $.16 cents for a single roll, I don't buy anything over $.25.

At $3.33 each, that's a great price for Zevia, but I will also use a $1 printable coupon I found on

Target Deals - Jan 29


Well I hadn't been in Target for a whole week, with the crowds I had seen in the parking lots, I thought major clearing out had begun. 

Nope, just the usual clearance deals and there must've been a delivery yesterday, because staff were stocking shelves everywhere! 

There are some shelves completely empty, but spring items are popping up in the store.  

Employees have no clue when clearing out prices will start, and the Starbucks is already gone. 

So, on to the deals... 



These purses are marked down to $19.99 from $40, blazers are also the same. Various ladies Beaver Canoe pajamas are 50% off as well. 


Various toiletries are 50-80% off, everything from deodorants to nail polish to mouthwash.  


Look on the endcaps (shelves on the end of the aisles), for clearance on stationary & party supplies to granola bars and gum. 


Still lots of camping supplies on clearance, as well as bike accessories and school supplies.


I was surprised to see the amount of toys still available at 50-80% off, Barbie, Playdough & Sofia the First dolls. 


For boys, there are Nerf and Disney Planes toys. Also look for the Barbie camper marked down to $83.99.


Still a lot of cute items on clearance in the baby/toddler clothing. Snowsuits are marked down 70%. 


Carter's newborn items are 40% off and men's underwear are marked down to $3.90 from $15. Mostly size small are left.


I am guessing with the droves of people going in and buying everything at regular prices, that Target is in no hurry to start reducing items yet. You can still find regular prices on Valentines and Easter items. 

Starting this week, you will no longer find a Target flyer.

Happy Shopping!
