Scoring 'FREE' Vegetables

I attempted something new this week. I bought coupons off of Ebay in an effort to get free vegetables and rice.
Follow this: The Steamfresh vegetables and rice are on sale at Giant Eagle through Thursday for 10/$10. Steamfresh has also released coupons for $.50 off per bag. And Giant Eagle is nice enough to double those coupons making the vegetables and rice absolutely FREE.
How does one come up with lots of coupons? Ebay to the rescue! I got 40 coupons for $5.50 including shipping. That means 40 bags of peas, broccoli, corn, green beans, brown rice and white rice for our family.
So I guess in the end I paid the $5.50 for my coupons so my vegetables aren't entirely FREE but $.14 cents per bag of vegetable is a steal of a deal.
And that's my stockpile story of the week.
Anyone want to come for dinner? Serving veggies and rice ALL week long. :)

  2. I love buying coupons off ebay! Right now I was wanting to buy some $.50/1 gatorade coupons but they're going for so much you kinda lose the thrill of getting a good deal. Kroger would double the coupon which means I'd get the gatorade free but paying $7-$8 for 20 coupons is too much for me!

  3. i'm hoping my $4 gillette fusion coupons come soon. yesterday at walgreens i saw they have a pile of those razors on clearance for $3. this week you get a $4 register reward on gillette fusion razors. this would be way too fun! :)

  4. So glad you had success with your e-bay coupons!!!
