This is how you work the catalina deals!

Sharing is caring!

I had a fabulous trip to Shop Rite yesterday! For you Shop Rite shoppers, I took advantage of the few dollar days sales they have this week, and then turned around and used those “store dollars” to buy my fruits, veggies and meats. They are having a great sale on meat this week, with 3 out of the 4 good sales being our rock bottom prices. Here’s how I worked the deals:

4 8-packs of bounty basic paper towels- on sale 5.00 each
(needed to buy 4 to get he 5.00 catalina)
10 cans of chef boyardee beef ravioli- on sale 10 for 8.00(must buy 10)
(I needed 10 anyway to get the 3.00 catalina)
3 bags goodlife cat food- on sale 5.00 each
1 bag goodlife cat treats- on sale 2.00 each
(needed 4 of these items to get my 3.00 catalina)
1 box crunch & munch- on sale 1.25
1 3lb bag yellow onions- 1.99

coupons used:
store coupon for 1.00 off bag of onions
3 .35/3 coupons doubled for chef boyardee products
3 3.00/1 coupons for goodlife pet food
1 .50/1 coupon doubled for goodlife cat treats
1 .35/1 coupon doubled for crunch & munch
4 1.00/1 coupons for bounty products
1 5.00 catalina from last week
1 1.00 catalina from last week

Total OOP(with tax): 25.69 Savings: 33.76 or 57%
and I got 11.00 in catalinas to use on my next trip.

Second trip:
3.05 pounds of ground beef- on sale 1.69/lb- 5.15
2.39 pounds of boneless, skinless chicken breasts- on sale 1.69/lb- 4.03
6.87 pounds of perdue whole roaster- on sale .49/lb w/ store coupon- 3.36
2.38 pounds green seedless grapes- on sale .99/lb- 2.35
1.5 pounds of roma tomatoes- on sale .99/lb- 1.48
1 head of lettuce- .99

4 bags goodlife cat treats- on sale 2.00 each
1 tub store brand margarine- on sale 1.49 w/ store coupon

coupons used:
4 1.00/1 coupons for goodlife cat treats
3.00 catalina

Total OOP: 16.83 Savings: 20.56 or 55%! Plus, I got back another 3.00 catalina to either use for next week or continue to roll on the cat food sale this week. Also pictured are my CVS hounds which I ended up paying 0.00 OOP for! Such a great sunday :o)

    lol@spaghetti! Feel free to copy my deals whenever you want. That’s why I post them.


    if you scroll down a bit, you will see a post of mine titled “Shop Rite deals.” Those are the deals I did yesterday. I made sure to do all the catalina deals in my first transaction, so I could use the “store money” on my second transaction.
