Either talk me out of this plan or tell me it is a great idea .

I'm thinking about going to Meijers and doing the $5/20 deal.

13 pizza rolls (Meijers will only double 2 qs)
$13 on sale
-.80 q
-.80 q
-.60 q
-.60 q
-1.10/2 q
-.55 q
-.55 q
-1.00 q
-1.00 q
- 3 .40 qs ($1.2)
Total=$4.80

7 toaster strudals (have a rain check for $1.60 each)
-1.60 q
-1.00 q
-1.00 q
-.50 q
-.50 q
-.50 q

Total= $5.60

Total for 13 Pizza Rolls and 7 toaster Strudals will be $10.40-$5 OYNO

It's an awful idea. How many toaster strudels and pizza rolls can you possibly eat before you puke at the sight of them? Just a little something to think about. Stay strong, April! You can do it!

P.S. Don't read my post about having the fever.

psst There's a 0.50/1 printable on the pizza rolls, can't remember where though....don't tell Teri I told you.

There's a target coupon for 0.75 on the toaster strudels now and I think they are still on sale. Probably still a better deal at meijer with the $5OYNO though.

Do you have room in your freezer? That's not really a lot of pizza rolls since it's the 15ct but it IS a lot of toaster strudel. Would you all eat them before you get sick of them?

I was planning on getting a few boxes of them with my raincheck. I'm getting more pizza rolls from kroger with a raincheck.

I was thinking about doing the green giant deal since they are 10/$10, apparently it prints out a $1 OYNO for every 3 boxes and then you get $5 when you buy 20 so it would be:
22 @ $1 = $22
Less 11 $1/2 coupons = $11
Plus get 7 $1 OYNO and 1 $5 OYNO, end up making $1!!!

Only problem?...not enough room in the freezer.

Do I have room in the freezer? Hum...maybe if I rearrange Actually we have probably ate at least boxes of the pizza rolls. I have gotten rid of 2 boxes of the toaster scramblers that I had. My sister is spending the night and I'm sure that she would not be opposed to eating some.

As far as getting tired of them...I hope I don't. They are so easy to take to work.

I'm not going to do the veggie deal because we probably will never eat them.

Oh, and I have already seen the 50c qs

Does anyone know how much the farm rich cheese sticks are at Meijers. The ad says half off. There is a $1/2 meijer coupon and a $1/1 manu coupon out. That would be $3 off 2 of them .

Ohhhh you take them to work! Yeah, that's probably why we don't go through the strudels fast, we only eat them on the weekends. We eat the pizza rolls as a snack a alot though.

Yeah, that's the other part of the veggie deal. I know we couldn't eat that many. If it was any green giant I could get the frozen corn on the cob but it's the boxed only and we don't like them as well.

Sounds like good deals, I think you should do it!!

Thanks girls!

I've decided...I'm only going to be a little bad

I was reading on HCW that the cheese sticks are free after coupons !! But a limit of 1 store coupon I'm taking DH and my sister to get around this If there is free cheese sticks involved DH will not object. Since DH and my sister are coming I'm going to print off more BC potato coupons (I can get 8 total as long as I am not having a problem with the BC website again and I have that peelie). I'm going to get 10 pizza rolls (but on different orders now) and only 2 strudels.

My total should be somewhere around $4 for:

6 boxes of cheese sticks
10 boxes of pizza rolls
9 boxes of potatoes
2 strudles

Liz, the BC potatoes are on coupons.com and Betty Crocker's websites, not box tops. Sorry about that.

You are NAUGHTY, and I'm telling Teri on you!



You don't need more stockpile, April! There will be another great sale later--when you actually have room in the freezer to do it!! No more stuffing that freezer. You first need to make some room to put fresh stuff IN!

That sounds like a resonable plan. Very little OOP. I went to Meijer on Wed, but totally forgot to post about the Farm Rich stuff being free! I got the onion petals though-hubby loves though! With their stuff there's very little in the package, but I figure, for free...I'll get 'em!
