Dusty Wallet’s Food Bank Purchases with Coupon Matches 9/5-9/11

Finally we get to mention Kroger in this column, as the much anticipated Mega Deal gives some bargains on cereal, which is another core item on food bank shelves.   Cheerios, Chex, and Rice Krispies are great because they appeal to adults and kids, but most food banks will also welcome those sugary kids cereals.  Print 2 coupons each for Honey Nut Cheerios and Cinnamon Toast Crunch to get them for 49¢ each.  That’s 4 items, then you need 1 more to complete your 5 item Mega Deal.  There are lots of great options, but we love the new Fiber One Lemon Bars, which can also be had for a net 49¢.

The same list of Advantage Buy deals which we highlighted last week is still available at Publix, plus an excellent weekly deal on Ragu.  Our savings from last week weren’t the greatest, as we took advantage of the rare deal on canned beans and (gasp) bought some without coupons!  Here is what we are buying for the North Gwinnett Co-op this week:

At Publix through 9/13/13
Kraft Velveeta Cheesy Skillets Singles ready-to-eat meals, 9oz microwaveable tray — $2.99
-        MC $1.00 off 1 Velveeta Cheesy Skillets Singles, printable, plus
-        SC B1G1 Velveeta Cheesy Skillets Singles, Publix Grilling flyer (available in rack at front of stores)
Only forty-nine cents each for these ready-to-eat meals buys a nice warm lunch or dinner for one.

 Hormel Sandwich Makers, or SPAM Meals for 1, 7.5oz to 10oz microwaveable tray – 3 for $5.00
-        MC $1.00 off 1 SPAM Meal for 1, SS 8/11/13, or
-        MC $1.00 off 1 Hormel Sandwich Makers printable
These hot meals for one are only $0.67 after coupon.  Look for them in the Soup aisle.

 Planters Peanut Butter, 16oz jar — $2.00
-       MC $1.00 off 2 Planters Peanut Butter, peelies found on product
Peanut Butter is the #1 request of our food bank!  This is a fantastic price for peanut butter, $1.50 versus the regular price of $3.79.  

 Luck’s Canned Beans, assorted sizes and varieties — $0.75
Coupons are rare for Luck’s, but this is a great price, and Food Banks actually love canned or dried beans!

At Publix through 9/11/13
Ragu Pasta Sauce, 16oz to 24oz jar – 2 for $3.00
-        MC $0.50 off 2 Ragu Pasta Sauce, RP 8/18/13, plus
-        SC $1.00 off 2 Ragu Pasta Sauce, Best Meals Happen at Home E-mail, or
-        SC $1.00 off 2 Ragu Pasta Sauce, RP 8/18/13
Sorry that we can’t offer a link for the Best Meals coupon, but you have to click through from the Publix e-mail.  If you have both coupons, then you can score Ragu for 50¢ a jar! 

At Kroger through 9/21/13
Cinnamon Toast Crunch, 12.2oz box – $2.49 before Mega Savings ($1.49 after)
-        MC $1.00 off 1 Cinnamon Toast Crunch, printable
You have to register before printing.  Bettycrocker.com permits 2 prints per account, so don’t forget your 2nd print! 

 Honey Nut Cheerios, 12.25oz box – $2.49 before Mega Savings ($1.49 after)
-        MC $1.00 off 1 Honey Nut Cheerios or Honey Nut Medley Crunch, printable
This Mega Deal gives you $5 immediate savings when you buy a total of 5 qualifying items.  You can buy 5 of the same item, or any combination of 5items participating items.
