After reading a few comments from people about how hardly anyone is posting their deals, I decided to start posting mine again. As I am now menu planning to best maximize my stockpile and the sales out there on fresh produce I figured I would post the planned menu, grocery list indicating stockpile, or what has to be purchased. I hope that it will help someone else out if they see the method to my madness =D Normally my menu is planned around a wednesday- friday cycle so I will have a partial menu up for sunday - tuesday. My breakfast and lunches are usually pretty simple as I am feeding a 4yo. My DH goes with whatever I tell him to take to work, and I eat whatever I can scrounge =p
Below is a list of my stores out here in Arizona, and their couponing rules:
Albertsons: no loyalty card, normally no doubled coupons.
Frys: loyalty card, coupons under a dollar are increased in value to a dollar for the first three per transaction. Multiple transactions are allowed.
Safeway: loyalty card, store manager has set the following policy in place: coupons under a dollar are increased in value to a dollar for the first three like coupons per loyalty card per day. They will only accept 3 like coupons per loyalty card per day, regardless of doubling or not.
Walmart Neighborhood Market: no loyalty card, price matches competitors in ad prices BUT NOT THEIR COUPONS
