I always marvel at the women who are able to reduce their grocery bills down to just about nothing through pairing up coupons and sales. I'm ok at it, but I certainly wouldn't consider myself an expert or an advanced couponer. But today, everything worked out great! And it can for you too.
Smith's (or Kroger stores) is running the mega event, where if you buy a combination of 10 participating products, you get them for .50 cents less than the regular sale price. American Beauty pasta and related brands are on sale for .49 cents if you buy a combination of 10. There are coupons for $1 off 2; you can print coupons for four varieties, and you can print each coupon twice. There is another site where you can print the same coupons again.
So today, I stocked my pantry with pasta for free. Using these coupons with the sale, you could easily end up with more than you need, so you could make a pasta basket for a new mom or someone who's sick or just needing a nice gesture. This Saturday, is the U.S. Postal Service's Stamp Out Hunger food drive, where you can leave non-perishables in a bag with your mail and the postal carriers will deliver the food to local food banks.
Here are the links to print the coupons:
