$2.52 Smith's Shopping Trip!

Here is what I bought today at Smith's for $2.52 oop. It would have only cost me a few cents but I got distracted and forgot to add instant potatoes to one of my transactions. Oh, well! I can handle $2.52 plus I earned another $3 catalina, so I still made money on the deal. I am not going to break all the transactions for you because I did quite a few. Here is what I got:

8 Quaker Oatmeal True Delights
1 Reg. Quaker Oatmeal
4 Stride Gum
1 Huggies Baby Wipe tub
1 box Cinnamon Life Cereal
12-15 Betty Crocker Instant Potato pouches ( I forgot to count before I put them away)

Smiths and Albertson's are both running Quaker Deals this week. Both deals are buy 5 participating items, pay $5 ($1 ea.) Smiths has Quaker cereal and oatmeal. Albertson's has Quaker cereal, oatmeal, granola bars and Aunt Jemima pancake mix. The True Delights oatmeal is part of the deal at Smiths. i did not find this variety at Albertsons. The Smiths on Durango/Elkhorn did not have the blueberry flavor so I went to a different Smith's location to get what I wanted. You might want to call around. I was able to get all my oatmeal free today with the following coupons.

$1/1 True Delights Oatmeal here and here
$1/1 Quaker Instant or Quick or Rolled oats here ( you have to create your day experience to be able to print the coupon)

Another Note: The Betty Crocker Instant Potato catalina is still running until April 18th. Learn more here. The pouches of potatoes are now on sale for $.84 ea. Buy 3, pay $2.52 earn a $3 catalina. Then you have overage to use on your next transaction. I bought a group of 3 potatoes with each of my transactions today so that it would eat up my total. How many of you have been able to stock up on potatoes? The stores I have been to recently are restocked, so if you haven't been able to get any, try again.

I bought one bathroom and one kitchen cleaner and I really like them.
