I'm loving Albertsons this week!

This cost me $0.90 (I saved $108.38)
I actually bought a lot more than what you're seeing here- including one box of Quaker Delights Granola Bars, a box of Ritz Crackerfuls, and 19 more bottles of salad dressing that went directly to St. Vincents. Between my mom and I, we took down 10 tubs of oatmeal and 43 bottles of salad dressing just yesterday. There are a ton of benefits to couponing, but being able to donate in large amounts is one of my favorites. Of course, being able to grab a few free things for yourself in the process is also kind of wonderful. Yes, it took us a while to collect all our coupons and go through the lines multiple times but it's certainly not a waste of time.

If you have the coupons and your stores are stocked up on salad dressing, you might consider picking up a few bottles to donate as well. A good number of Albertsons stores have barrels for the food bank somewhere inside- making this a super easy good deed to do.


  1. Great idea to encourage others to donate too! Remember many of our poor don't drive, don't have computers & printers to print coupons, some don't have the $5 (or so to start with) and some just aren't able to figure out the 'math' in couponing.

    Please remember to give to those less fortunate <3 God's blessings to you and yours! faewings

  2. I too think it's wonderful that you donate so much to those in need. There are so many who go hungry, especially kids in the summer months, and it feels good to be able to help out a little because of couponing!
