I thought I got a really good deal on ice cream earlier this month (1.5 Qts for $0.74).  But, then this cheese offer came along.

The cheese was regularly $3.99 each.  But, it was on sale for $3.00 each.  Then there was a coupon in the circular for $2.11 off one, a coupon in the flyer the grocery store sent in the mail for $1 off two, and an electronic coupon on the store website for $1.00 off 2.  As you can see in the photo I paid $2.00 for one (really the second one) and they paid me $0.11 to take the other (really the first one with the big coupon) for a total of $1.89 for two cheese blocks.  And, all were store coupons.  If only there were manufacturer’s coupons on this item!

I put both blocks of cheese in the freezer since I already have plenty on hand.  But, this was too good to pass up.

I’m going to have to think more about grocery shopping on Thursdays.  The e-coupons come out Wednesday night and the past two weeks they’ve had one coupon for an item that was on sale the previous week, which of course doesn’t end until Thursday.  So, if you go on Thursday you can double up as I did here.  But, my younger two are both home with me on Thursday which makes it a less desirable day to go shopping.  Hmmm.
