Having multiple inserts is a must to get a great deal like that. Also, getting the ads on Thursdays and being able to plan ahead helps.
I knew Acme was having a sale of if you bought some items, you would get a 1.00 or whatever cat back. When I did yesterday's deal, I had 5. in cats from the day before.
The Fuze drinks were 10 for 5. I used (5) 1.0/2 coupons from 4/10 SS making these free

The McCormick spices were on sale for 1.00 each. I used 7- .75/1 coupons from 4/10 insert which doubled up to 1.00, again, completely free!

The oil was 2.99 each and wyb 2, you got a 1. cat back. I used (4) .50/1 coupon from 4/10 insert for the oil, making it 1.99 each. I rolled the cats from the prev. day into this and that covered the cost.

The Purex Cystals were 2.99 with a 1.00 cat wyb 1. I used a 2./1 coupon ( I think from 2/27 Insert). Again, I rolled 1. cat to pay for the balance.

The toothbrushes were 2.50 each and I used (2) 2./ off 1 from the 4/3 P&G Insert. Typically I do free toothbrushes, but I had none left in my stockpile, so 50 cents was def. ok, esp when stacked with a catalina which made them free.

I broke the order up into 2 orders. Cust. Service wasn't sure if the Fuze drinks would allow for a double order and give that discount. This also worked out better too because then I could roll the catalina from the first 2 bottles of Oil and Purex.
There was a girl behind me in line that you could tell she was impressed(heck..I was impressed!)
