Deals O' The Week

There's a great stock up deal going on at Meijer this week. I plan on going back several times before it ends next Wednesday.

Here's how I'm working it:

First Trip:
4 boxes of cereal @ 4/$10 (The kids are about to flip out that they are going to have something besides oatmeal- hey, I'm a nice mom like that:)
4 Kraft Deluxe Mac and Cheese @ 3/$5
6 boxes of Jello @ $.50 each

Use 2 $2 off 2 mac and cheese Meijer Mealbox coupons
Use 3 $1.50 off 2 Jello Meijer Mealbox coupons
Get instant $2 off for buying 4 cereal

Cost $9.39
Received $5 off next purchase coupons

The greatness of Meijer is that you can print as many coupons as you like from their site. I use the self check and scan my own coupons (just be sure to clip them ahead of time) and have never had any problems. Usually I can get in and out of there in less than 10 minutes.

Returning visits:
Same purchases - coupons - $5 coupon = $4.39 + another $5 off next purchase

After stocking up, I plan to use the remaining $5 coupon to buy eggs. They are on sale $.88/doz this week.

While waiting during piano lessons today, we went to Goodwill and found these goodies for the bedroom makeover. Two brand new bedskirts from Target and a sheer window panel. Because some of them were red tagged they were half priced. In all, I spent $12 and saved $6.

I love the satin material on these skirts but they are most definitely the wrong shade of brown. The plan is to dye them. Never attempted that before. Has anyone done this and have any suggestions?

Oh I'm so jealous...I know, I know (wrong of me! LOL) but we just don't have great grocery stores like these where I live!

Great deal for you! Congrats!!

What of that combination gets you the $5 coupon? Spending the amount or getting 4 boxes of ceral? I'm asking just in case I don't want that much jello! ;-) Thanks for posting this! We have a Meijer near-by and I hadn't realized the deal was that good!

Rit dye has directions on the box. I'm even betting you can call the company before you buy the dye and ask about the specific fabric you have.

Good job on your stock up! :)

Hi! I've used Rit Dye right in my washing machine (if you have a top loader). I've dyed towel in different shades for my 3 girls and they really turned out well.
Goo luck!
