Sixteen Pounds of Fruit and Veggies: Safeway Deals 2/22 to 2/28/12


Eight pounds of frozen vegetables and eight pounds of oranges came back from Safeway this week (making for a very heavy shopping bag!).  Two packs of Boca “chicken” nuggets were in there also.  Together, everything pictured cost $11.97.  My Safeway store doubles coupons by deducting an extra 50 cents for each manufacturer coupon.  Without doubles, the total cost would be $12.47.  Here are the details:

Oranges, 8 lb bag, on sale for $3.99

No coupons needed

Final cost: $3.99  (that is $0.50/lb)

Pantry Essentials frozen vegetables, 2 lb (32 oz) bag, $1.89 regular price

Use in-ad coupon for 30% off frozen* items

Final cost: $1.32 per 2 lb bag (that is $0.66/lb)

(I got corn and peas, since they are both relatively low in pesticides.)

Boca “chicken” nuggets, on sale for $3.00, buy 2

Use 30% frozen* coupon, double coupon, and $1.00/2 coupon from 1/8/12 Smart Source insert

Final cost: $1.35 each

* Note: The 30% frozen in-ad coupon requires a minimum purchase of frozen items before it will apply ($10 at my store; read the fine print on your coupon).  That represents the cost before manufacturer and double coupons – those can lower your cost below $10.  (Some stores may not offer the 30% frozen coupon at all.  But don’t worry, March is frozen food month, there will be more good frozen sales coming…)

A few other good deals this week at Safeway.  Prices noted without double coupons.  If you store offers double coupons, your final cost could be less.
