I'm sure I'm missing some things. I highly recommend reviewing the list of coupons you have loaded on your card on Cellfire, Shortcuts, P&G Esaver, and CouponLink. I think there are some matchups on mayonnaise and/or Miracle Whip too. Since moving I've been pretty MIA with couponing. This evening of couponing has brought me back! WOOHOO!!! I'll add more if I remember and after looking to head back tomorrow :)

At the end of my 3 transactions today I spent a little less than $43 and this is what I bought:

2 loaves Safeway bread, 1 Cinnamon Toast cruch, 1 Honey nut cheerios, 1 Nature Valley Trail mix granola bars, 1 Fiber One chewy Bars, 2 Better Oats oatmeals, 3 Brummel & Browns, 1 Scrubbing Bubbles Kit, 2 Clearanced Hamburger (6 lb for $8), 2 Pillsbury Grands, 1 Sweet Moments, 1 String Cheese, 2 Oscar Mayer franks, 2 lbs bananas, 3.8 lb navel oranges, 1 avocado, 2 baby carrots 2 lb bags, 1 BC cake mix, 1 BC frosting, , 1 Juanita Tortilla chips, 1 Imperial margarine, 3 GG boxed vegetables, 8 Yoplait cups, 1 milk, 1 pkg bless,sless chicken breasts

PHEW! If I had stuck with ONLY couponed items I would've saved a lot more but, alas, I hadn't been grocery shopping in over a month so I had to make some exceptions. I saved 63% which doesn't include the clearanced meat savings. This equates to $70!! I love couponing. It's funny though. After doing a blog post I see where I could have saved EVEN MORE and I kick myself... just a little ;)

Plus I also received a 10% off coupon for reaching a certain purchase spent total on my Wellness card. AND I still have a $2 +Up Reward to use... Looks like I'll be heading back there for another transaction tomorrow :)

A lot of the coupons are no longer available because of all the printing last week in preparation for this deal. Check and for all of the coupons listed. Even if you can't get all of the coupons the rebate will make the prices very reasonable. If you're choosing between the larger packages of wipes and the tubs, the larget packages end up being only 1.8 cents each and the tubs end up 3.6 cents each. You'll spend a little more money but save in the end if you buy the refill bags.

MDA coupon booklet

If you've been looking for Safeway's infamous "make a muscle, make a difference" MDA coupon booklet and have yet to find it, come to the eastside! The 181st & Glisan Safeway just got their shipment of these little booklets over the weekend. They're up at the registers. Hopefully there will be more deals in the next couple of weeks using these coupons again!

Great Internet Printable website! has some great coupons available for printing. You don't need to sign up and they carry General Mills and Betty Crocker brands as well as other brands. The best thing about this site? NONE of the coupons are DO NOT DOUBLE! AWESOME!! Using this site for this weeks Safeway deals that end 8/17.

Safeway moneymakers!

This week is amazing at Safeway. Go to for the list of items.
