Coupon/Savings Total=$13.80

$24.50-$13.80=$10.70 OOP
That's a 74% savings rate over retail.
Oh, and I received a .50¢ Catalina Q for buying the Yeast.  I would have bought more but that was the last strip in the store.  (I'll get .40¢ back from Saving Star on this purchase too.)

The gravy and broth cost me $2.00 OOP.  Buying that broth upped my gravy cost to .20¢ per can in that order, so $1.60 OOP on just the gravy.  Broth is expensive bought in a container.  I'll stick to boiling my meat bones and skin and making my own to stick into the freezer for later.

We are up to 48 cans for the food bank.  If I take that .50¢ Catalina Q I can get 11 more cans of gravy for ZERO OOP tomorrow morning before heading over to the food bank to drop all this off.
59 cans does sound much nicer than 48 cans, dontcha think?lol

Stay tuned for updates as this story develops..... ;-)



  1. Yuck,
    The sight of those guys drinking gravy made me queasy.I prefer mine in a bowl and just eat it with a spoon.

  2. You and that gravy! It's going to go straight to your hips... or the food bank. Whichever comes first.
    I buy the powdered stuff from Sam's Club and it's awesome. I could honestly drink it from a mug if given the opportunity. hmm.. Gives me an idea...

  3. That reminds me....I need some gravy.
