  • Ralphs & Donation Challenge Update: 11/5/2012

    Ralphs donation deals

    As I mentioned over the weekend, I challenged myself to buy as much food to donate as possible with a $10 budget. So I headed out to Ralphs this morning and purchased:

    12 boxes of Stove Top stuffing @ $0.25 each
    10 cans of Swanson chicken broth @ $0.41 each
    4 bags of Jet-Puffed marshmallows @ $0.44 each
    1 box of Pop-Tarts @ $0.99

    All prices are sale and coupons. My total was $9.85 (there’s no tax on food in California). At $0.75 after Mega Sale but before coupons, Stove Top stuffing was even cheaper than advertised. In retrospect, I probably should have snagged two boxes of Ronzoni pasta for $0.69 each instead of the Pop-Tarts, but I had a high-value coupon $0.50/1 Pop-Tarts coupon from somewhere.

    I am considering going back and picking up more items (I still have a few more coupons). The Mega Sale will continue through next week, so I can snag more to donate by Friday.

    Here are the deals I snagged, plus a few more I found while I was out:
