Vons trip 1

I love Vons!!!

Besides the absolutely fabulous coupon book they put out...they have been offering a $5 off coupon when you buy certain frozen food items.

Add in the insanely cheap fruit snacks, Quaker instant oatmeal, Pillsbury cresants, GM cereals...need I go on? All I can say is that I loved this store before, but love it even more now. (:

Trip #1
I was very dissapointed in myself. I normally, put all the coupons I KNOW I will be using in an envelope before I go. If I have store coupons I put those in there also (including all ONYO).

So first dissapointment, I forgot my list. I normally write down how many of each item I want and do it in aisle order. It totally throws me off when I have to hop back & forth between aisles.

As I am walking, I kept pulling out coupons but couldn't find the store coupon for it. I ended up leaving a lot there. Later I got home and realized that I had never cut them out!! Aghhh!

My first trip was $205 before savings card and coupons...afterward $85! Connor was in HEAVEN when he saw the sausage crumbles! These pictures do not include 4 12 packs of soda!

 As you can see, I was able to get a lot for $85!! I hear a lot of people say that they don't use coupons because they can never find coupons for things that they buy. I have to disagree on that. If you look in my pictures you will see salsa, salad dressing, meat, yogurt, cleaning name it, you can find it! I love my coupons!!

Holy cow! I am sold! What company is Vons?!

I don't know if you have it in CO but it is Safeway/Vons/Pavillions.
So I know you will have it once you move back to AZ! (:

Looks like you had different things on sale at Vons than we did at Safeway, but I stocked up on fruit snacks (which generated a Catalina for $1.50/2 on a return trip) and frozen stuff (including those mint chocolate ice cream sandwiches - they're Eric's favorite. Yay for awesome coupons!

@Susan, Ethan was excited for all of those ice cream treats! I am not even done yet. I love frozen food month!
