My favorite time of year at Safeway is Back to School time because you can always get FREE Granola Bars & Free Fruit Snacks.  And oh, how I love the Sweet n' Salty Nature Valley Bars.  In fact, I think I survived off of them during the first few weeks after the Shark was least in the morning.  I would be alone and too tired to fix anything to eat, so I'd eat one or two or three of them :)  I don't recommend this, by the way...

Anyway, it's that time again, so if you have a Safeway (or the equivalent) near you, YOU DO NOT WANT TO MISS THIS SALE.  Well, unless you are super healthy and you consider granola bars equal to candy bars. Then you can ignore all of this :) Well, maybe you don't need to be "super healthy" to come to that conclusion..

Also...I should mention that this only works if your Safeway doubles coupons! 

I went today and got all of this for $8.61 and I got a $2.50 catalina for my next visit.  I'm sure you could do even better if you have some more time to prepare!  Here's how:

1) Used 3 $.50 coupons for the Sweet n' Salty Granola Bars from the 8/8 General Mills insert
    Used 1 $.50 coupon for the Sweet n' Salty Granola Bars from

2) Used 3 $.50 off 2 coupons for Progresso soup from 8/8 General Mills insert
    Used 1 $.50 off 2 coupon for Progresso soup from

3) Used 3 $1 off 1 coupons for Natural Valley Nut Clusters from 8/8 GM insert
 Used 1 $1 off 1 coupon for Golden Grahams (think I got this in the mail, but you can get $1 off 2 at

I also had two more $1 off 1 coupons for cereal and then I used a $1 off 2 coupon for General Mills cereal from    There are 2 boxes of Cheerios in the pic, so 5 cereals total.

Note: ** I had various coupons that I'm not sure about from Cellfire &  I need to do a better job of keeping up with these, but I always forget which ones I've loaded.  I'm also not sure about the policy on using these with paper coupons. Everyone seems to have a different opinion, so I don't count on using them together.  I usually load ones I'm interested in, forget, and then sometimes they come off on my card before they expire...

You can also score Fruit Snacks for free (after catalina) right now too!

Buy 4 Betty Crocker Fruit Snacks and use 2 of the $.50 off 2 coupons from the 8/8 GM insert.  You'll pay only $2 for all four, and you'll get back a $2 catalina for your next order.  (Thanks, Springs Bargains!)

All of these catalinas roll (most of the time!), so you can keep doing these deals over and over, BUT please leave some for the other customers :)
