Chicagolandia
Finally, I was able to go out hounding/shopping. Not only were the deals good, I walked out with a MM! I don’t get those often, so when I do, I’m usually ecstatic about ‘em.

Here’s how the pennies fell on my trip last night to Jewel:

$1.67 each - 5 bottles Kraft Salad Dressing -$1.50 Q (2) -$1 Q (3)
$1.50 each - 4 bottles French’s Mustard -$.75 (2) -$.50 (2)
$1.67 each – 4 bottles Ken’s Salad Dressing/Spritzers -$1 Q (4)
$1.49 each – 2 bottles French’s Worcestshire Sauce -$.50 Q (2)
$.89 each – 6 bottles Kraft BBQ sauce 18 oz. -$1 Q (5) -$.75 Q (1) = MM $.41!!
$1 each – 2 Hunt’s Ketchup -$.20 Q (2)
2/$1 - 2 McCormick Grill Mates seasoning packets -$.50 Q (2) = FREE
$1.25 each – 2 jars Vlasic sweet relish
5 bread rolls $.49 each
$1.50 - 2 bags Wild Harvest tortilla chips - $1 Q (2)
2 bags Kingsford Matchlite Charcoal $8.99
7.41 lbs. Pork ribs @ $1.49 lb. = $11.05
4.76 lbs. whole chicken @ $.99 lb. = $4.71
$3.00 each - 3 pkgs. Oscar Meyer Fresh Deli Meats - $1/2 Q (1) -$.75 Q (1)
$2.29 each - 2 Jewel shaved honey ham/turkey
$.99 – 2 Philadelphia Cream Cheese -$1/2 Q
$.99 – 3 Jewel Shredded Cheese
1/8 Sheet Cake (carrot cake – celebrating DH completing his next 2 courses in his schooling program)
1 Triple Chocolate Cake $4.29 (never let me see cake when I’m shopping)

I didn’t intend to load up on meat, but I found a lovely tearpad of coupons by the salad dressing. Buy any 2 of the Kraft products listed below, receive $2 off any meat/poultry purchase. So, I promptly went back and grabbed more meat! With my listing of qualifying condiments, I used 6 of those coupons! Since deli meat is at a premium until the kitchen is set up and it’s too darned pricey any other way to buy it, I went for those first. I filled in with a roasting chicken and some ribs. Hey, it’s summer – you’ve got to love ribs. Especially with all that free BBQ sauce. I did stack coupons on the meat (whenever I could) to bring down the overall total.
I also rolled a $4 cat and used 2 $6 off any pork purchase WYB Kingsford Matchlite (13.5 lb. or larger) and some mildly overpriced condiments (naturally the Kraft BBQ sauce didn’t qualify, so I went for the Vlasic – it was the cheapest qualifier).

Total (before coupons) $162.77
Savings $102.09
Coupons $49.15
OOP = $51.24
Tax = $2.81
# of items = 51

The OOP was higher than I wanted it to be, but when you consider that the cakes and charcoal accounted for $31.26, I feel much better about that. Besides, we were out of charcoal and that’s a no-no for Memorial Day weekend.

And I got a $3 cat for buying 6 bottles of Kraft BBQ sauce!
