Great Time to Stock Up!

Campbell's Soup I: Cream of Mushroom, c.1968 Art Poster Print by Andy Warhol, 11x14
Yesterday, Sumiko posted a recipe in which she substituted other ingredients for a can of cream of chicken soup.  While I don't use cream soups very often, I always try to keep them on hand for those times when I do need them.  With the holidays coming up, many stores have cream soups and other canned goods on sale, making right now a great time to stock up!  Because these items are so inexpensive (and even FREE!), I would recommend buying them even if you don't personally use them and donate them to a local food bank.  Food banks are always looking for donations, but particularly so during the holiday season.  Thanks to Money Saving Mom and a little of my own research for the following suggestions:

These prices were in Sunday's ad and are good through Saturday, November 20.
    Stove Top Stuffing Mix, Cornbread, 6-Ounce Boxes (Pack of 12)
  • Campbells condensed soups (including Cream of Mushroom and Cream of Chicken) are on sale for $0.50 each.  You can print coupons for $1.50 off 3 condensed and great for cooking soups here, making them FREE after the sale and coupons!
  • While we won't be having Stove Top stuffing on Thanksgiving, I like to keep some on hand to have as a side dish for other meals.  This week, Target has it on sale for 79 cents.  There is a Target coupon for $0.50 off 2 here, which can be used with a coupon for $1 off 2 here.  In case you weren't aware, Target accepts one store coupon with one manufacturer's coupon for the same item, increasing your savings!  After sale and coupons, they are only $0.04 per box!
  • We're big proponents of homemade gravy, but if gravy's not your thing, Target has Heinz gravy on sale for $0.79 per jar.  You can print a coupon for $1 off 3 here, making them $0.46 cents each!
  • Del Monte canned vegetables are on sale for $0.45 each.  If you get the newspaper, there was a coupon for $1 off 5 cans of Del Monte fruits, vegetables, or tomatoes in the September 19th RedPlum insert.  After sale and coupon, the total cost will be $0.25 per can.  **UPDATE** This coupon is expired and, as far as I know, there isn't another one.
  • Check out other Target sale/coupon match-ups here.
Ralphs (Southern California Kroger Affiliate)
Some of the deals you can get at Target are also available at Ralphs and possibly at other Kroger affiliates around the country.  Please check your local ad to confirm.  Additionally, these sales are only good through TODAY, so if you're needing or wanting to stock up on these items at these prices, you're going to have to head out TODAY!  Sorry for the late notice.
    Carnation Evaporated Milk Vitamin D Added 5-oz
  • Carnation Evaporated Milk is on sale for $0.69*.  In the RedPlum insert in last Sunday's paper (11/14), there was a coupon for $0.50 off 2 cans.  With doubled coupons, you'll be able to get them for $0.19 each.  You can use this to make Jacque's Pumpkin Pie Cake!
  • Campbell's Cream of Mushroom and Cream of Chicken Soup are sale for $0.49*.  Pair with the $1.50 off 3 coupon here to get them for FREE!  The coupon for the cream soups is the "Great for Cooking" one.  If this is something you use a lot, you can also use the $0.25 off 4 coupon from the September 12, October 3, or November 7 SmartSource inserts, which will double to $0.50, making the soup $0.37 per can.
  • Green Giant Valley Fresh Steamers on sale for $0.49*.  Can be paired with $0.50 off 2 coupon in the General mills insert from October 3 or last Sunday (11/14), which will double to $1 to make these FREE!
  • Nabisco Snack Crackers are on sale for $0.99 each.  There was a coupon in the SmartSource insert last Sunday (11/14) for $1 off 1, making these FREE!
  • Heinz Gravy is on sale for $0.75*.  If you pair the sale with the $1 off 3 coupon here, you'll be able to get these for $0.42 each.  I've seen Ralphs advertising Super Double Coupons, but I'm not sure if it's effective yet.  If it is, this coupon will double to $2, making them only $0.08 each!
  • Campbell's Chunky Soups are on sale for $0.99* each.  There was a coupon for $1 off 2 in the October 10th SmartSource, which should double to $2 with the Super Double Coupons, making these FREE!
*Items marked with an asterisk are part of the buy 10, save $5 event.  In order to get those prices, you must purchase 10 participating products (see store or ad for details).  These are some of the best deals I found.  You can check your ad for more great deals and pair them up with coupons, using one of the coupon databases listed here.

If you still need a little motivation and convincing, I went to Ralph's this morning and spent $6.76 for all of this:

Total Savings: $56.26

I went to Ralph's yesterday, and my $1 coupons doubled! I hadn't seen any advertising about super doubles, so I was both surprised and excited! :)
