(Almost) Free Food!

I've begun reading some frugal/money-saving blogs lately, and it really has been helping with my grocery bill. I am new to it all, so I'm certainly not an expert, but I did have my first great deal this weekend, and I wanted to share it with my readers so that you can possibly get the same great deal!

1. Buy "All You" magazine from Walmart. This is chock full of great coupons, and totally worth the $1.97 it costs!

2. Look towards the back of the magazine, and you'll see a page of FIVE coupons for free Kraft, Nabisco, and Oscar Meyer items. With each coupon for a free item, you must purchase 3 items of your choice made by those brands. The coupons for the free items are: Kraft Singles, Wheat Thins, Crystal Lite, Kraft Salad Dressing, and Oscar Meyer Hot Dogs.

3. Purchase 15 packets of Kool Aid, which just so happens to be a Kraft food, if you check out manufacturing info on the back. Five coupons requiring you to buy 3 items=15 packets of Kool Aid. I got lucky & my Meijer had them on sale for 10 cents each, so I spent $1.50 and got ALL that food! Crystal Lite, Kraft Singles, and Kraft Dressing are staples in my house, so taht was especially great... the hot dogs and Wheat Thins I don't usually buy, but hey, it was free!!!

You can also get any variety of these items, as long as it falls into the price limit listed on the coupon... so you can get FF or LF items too!

Have you found any other great bargains like this that can help cut your healthy food grocery bill?!

Walmart honors any grocers ad or sale prices. Just take the ad in with you. :)

We spent roughly $325 this past week on food alone. I so wish it were cheaper. Seven people to feed. It gets pricey.
