Hy-Vee Money Maker

What a great trip to Hy-Vee! I made $3.75 buying Kraft cheese (of all crazy expensive things!) Cheese was on sale today 4/$5. When I got to the dairy section, I discovered a coupon dispenser with $1 off 1 Kraft with Philadelphia, and, miracle of all miracles, it wasn't empty! As if that weren't enough, the coupon DIDN'T say one per purchase! The icing on the cake was a $5 catalina if you bought 5 Kraft items.

I did make a stop at Walgreens earlier this afternoon where I picked up milk, a free after coupon travel sized Degree deodorant and a Snickers bunny. My grand total on all items after tax was about $57. 

I noticed coupons on several sale items at the store today. A few that I saw were,

$1 off 1 box of Smuckers Waffle Snackers
Various amounts of various Hefty brand products
$1 off 1 Kraft cheese
$.75 off Fruity Pebbles snacks

All of these items were a great deal after coupons.

If you're at Hen House any time soon, I also picked up a REALLY sweet Spring Essentials manufacturer coupon paper in their entry way last week. It has,

$2 off 1 Hormel entree coupon
$1 off 1 Philadelphia Cooking Creme
$.75 off 1 Dole Salad Blend
$.75 off 1 Blue Bell Ice Cream
$.55 off 1 V8 Fusion

And lots more! Keep your eyes peeled for this one! It's a good one!

Our meals this week will be extra simple now that I am back to work. For dinner tonight, we're having Dorito Salad. We'll also have pancakes with blueberry sauce and homemade hash browns early on in the week. I'm also planning on making cavatini. I also have been craving grilled cheese and tomato soup, so I'll have to make room for that somewhere! There is a new dessert I am dying to test out for Easter too, but I'm just not sure I'm going to get that done. It's a little involved -- and expensive!


  1. Great job! Our Hy-vee didn't do the 5 dollar catalina for shredded cheese but still, .25 cheese or even 1.00 is a good deal!

  2. Great deals.
