My Tom Thumb Trip – 4/28

I had a Chill Out at Home $10 catalina (coupon) that expired on April 28, so I quickly pulled together a $30 scenario to take advantage of the Living Well catalina promotion (buy $30 worth of qualifying products, get a $10 catalina for your next purchase) and ran to Tom Thumb last night. I did two transactions.

First Transaction: Electrasol

I purchased eight boxes of Electrasol at $3.99 each and used eight $2.50/1 Electrasol coupons from the 4/19 SS insert. After coupons, the price was $12.90 and I received a $10 catalina coupon to use on my next purchase.

I then did transaction #2 at a second Tom Thumb to use the catalinas:

Sun Chips – $0.99
Price: $3.00
Coupons: $1.01/1 Living Well Ad Coupon (if you didn’t get it in the newspaper, you can find it at the front of the store. The coupon actually reads ‘$1.99 with card and coupon’) AND $1.00/1 Sun Chips coupon from April All You Magazine.

Planters Cashews – $3.99

Goodlife Cat Food (2) – $1.49 each
Price: $4.49
Coupon: Two $3.00/1 printable coupons (you can also use the $2.00/1 coupon – 3/8 RP)

Bright Green Facial Tissue (1) – $0.49
Price: $1.49
Coupon: $1.00/1 – Living Well In-Ad store coupon

Newman’s Own Pizzas (2) – $3.99 each
Price: $4.99 each
Coupon: Two $1.00/1 printable coupons

Eat Right Spaghetti – $2.00
Price: $2.00

Trop50 Orange Juice (1) – $2.50
Price: $2.50
Coupon: $1.00/1 – 3/15 RP

Reynolds Wrap Recycled – $1.29 (will be free after rebate that I mentioned here – no longer available)
Price: $2.29
Coupon: $1.00/1 – Reynolds Booklet that I got at Kroger several months ago. You can also print a $0.50/1 coupon here. I think the printable only works if you didn’t get the rebate on Earth Day. I will submit my receipt and rebate to get the Reynolds Wrap for free.

Skim Milk (1) – $1.99

Nature’s Own Wheat Bread (1) – $2.00

Everything except the Reynolds Wrap, milk and bread are part of the Living Well promotion.

I used the $10 catalina from the Chill Out at Home promo, plus the $10 catalina from the Living Well promo (from the Electrasol purchase), plus a $1.50 catalina from purchasing Starbucks coffee. I also planned to use a free Planter’s snack product coupon (up to $5.00), but the cashier was very confused about printable coupons, frees, etc. and the line was backing up, so I paid $3.75 out of pocket, saved $50.88 (93% savings!) and received a $10 catalina from the Living Well promotion to use on my next transaction. With the Reynolds Wrap rebate, my entire second transaction will almost be free.

I’ll use the Planter’s free coupon on my next Tom Thumb Living Well promotion purchase.

You can get other scenarios and coupon match-ups at Moneywise Moms.

PetSmart is holding a party on Tuesday, April 21 from 6-8 PM where they’re giving away a free goodie bag and a free digital photo with frame, while supplies last. Bring your pet!

Based on the contest rules, it appears to be mostly geared toward dogs, but I may still try to stop in to see if there are any goodies for cats.

Visit the PetSmart site to learn more and find a location near you.

My Kroger Trip (3/16)

More cat food (see my Walmart post)!

Iams Kitten Food (3) – $0.99 each
Price: $5.99 each
Coupon: $5.00 – 3/1 PG

Still looking for the free Whisker Lickin’s Cat Treats. The sale ends on 3/17 and every store I’ve been to is out of stock!

My Walmart Trip – 3/15

I went to Walmart to look for the free Iams kitten food that I’ve seen people write about on various blogs. But it was $7.98 a bag at both Walmarts I visited… nearly $2.00/bag more than Kroger’s every day price! So much for low prices at Walmart. As with every store, it pays to shop around.

I did get some free cat treats, cheap wet cat food and a free Rimmel mascara. Total cost: $1.98!

Rimmel Sexy Curves Mascara – FREE
Price: $6.47
Coupon: Free coupon from April 2009 All You Magazine – good at Walmart

If you don’t already subscribe to All You Magazine and you want some free mascara, this is a great time to pick up a copy at Walmart. Then be sure to subscribe. I noticed is running a special: 1-year subscription to All You Magazine between now and March 31 for $19.95 and get a $5 gift card good toward a future purchase. Or get a 2-year subscription to All You Magazine for $39.84 and get a $10 gift certificate.

Or for an even better deal, you can get a 2-year subscription for only $20 at Cherrydale.

Meow Mix Cat Treats – $0.03 overage per bag
Price: $0.97/bag
Coupon: $1.00/1 – 3/1 RP

Meow Mix Market Select Cat Food – $0.15/cup
Price: $0.48/cup
Coupon: $1.00/3 – 3/1 RP

In case anyone is wondering why I buy so much cat food, it’s because I have 4+ cat mouths to feed. I have two 11 year old indoor cats that I adopted about six years ago from Operation Kindness, two feral 15 month old cats that I trapped and fixed when they were less than 12 weeks old (they now call my backyard “home”) and the occasional visit from daddy and mommy feral cat.

Here are my feral kitties a year ago:

Aren’t they cute? I contacted Feral Friends to see if they could place them in a foster home, but unfortunately they didn’t have room and the vet thought they were past the point of being domesticated (typically by 12 weeks at the latest and they were 12 weeks when they were fixed). So I got the mom and two babies fixed so they couldn’t reproduce any more. I couldn’t catch the dad. He couldn’t be swayed by tuna.

And here they are now (photo taken through the window with the flash scaring the black kitty)…

The female was very skittish as a baby, but now lets me pet her. The male is a lot more skittish than he was as a baby, but loves to play with me through the window (along with his sister).

And my indoor cats…

Even though they have lived together their entire lives, they can’t stand each other!
