Commissary Case Lot Sale

For those that Haven't heard....The Nellis Commissary is having their Case Lot Sale this weekend. Friday thru Sunday. They open at 8am!!

They usually have coupons to match up with the deals on Friday Morning but I've gone the second day of the event before and gotten good deals.

Commissary Deals


Cost : $45.85
Savings : $16.45 +
Spent : $29.40

37% Savings

As I feel I get a great deal of savings at the commissary the percentage is a bit incorrect compared to my other store receipts. The other stores will factor in the "Store" you saved because the item was on sale and not full price....where the Commissary only factors in what it rang up as so my total savings of $16.45 was straight coupon savings. It doesn't take into account that the full price for the Toaster Strudel's is possible another $.75 above what it rang up as.

So for me a 37% savings at the Commissary is good and I know that if I had the full non sale prices factored in it would most of the time put me up over a 50% savings.

The Pull Ups alone would have cost me $29 at full price!!

I'm so excited to try these new
Bounce Dryer Bars!!

I was able to get two of these
at Target for only $1.24 each!!



Cost : $ 104.42
Savings : $38.73
Spent : $65.69
37% Savings

I got good prices on each of these items individually but over all my savings wasn't what I had hoped it would be. However, I came in way under budget and I am fully stocked on a lot of items now.

I love the case lot sales and the fact that you don't have to buy a whole case of the items. The items that are in the isle's are priced the same per item as if you were buying the case. Major bonus since we typically don't need as many as come in a case.

Just realized my picture is missing the 12 rolls of paper'll just have to use your imagination for that one.

I also with this trip earned $.10 per gallon savings on gas.....When I filled up our car it ended up saving me $10 today!! Gotta love extra Gas perks!!

Commissary Trip!!

I made my random trip to the Commissary
today with all three kids in tow...
I typically do not take my kids when I coupon shop
due to the fact that I get distracted
easily and end up with non coupon items in my cart.

We survived the trip and look at these great deals!!
Soup for $.50 each
Jam for $1.25 Each
Body Wash for $.64 each
Shampoo/Conditioner for $.29 each

Was a successful trip and everything I
purchased was on my needed list for my

I went in with $15 cash and knew I had to stay below
that so when it rang up at $15.01 I was so excited!!
Cashier thought I was probably am...

I matched up all these coupons and deals from
Web site so check it out.
(not all the coupons are the same because she
is in a different region but I've found them to be
very close to what we have.)

Savings : $17.43
Cost : $1.00

95% Savings - Avg $.14 per item

This was the most successful trip I've made to
Albertsons since I've started coupons.
I used 4 double coupons on the pasta and
dressing...and there was a coupon in the store
for buy two of the dressings get a free bag of
cole slaw!! Major bonus!!

My last experience at the Lake Mead/Hollywood Albertsons
wasn't a great one but this time wasn't so bad.
I was there right at 9am and there were maybe
4 cars in the parking lot....maybe that's a better time to go...

Commissary Deals


Cost $92.20
Savings $49.00
Spent $43.20

53% Savings - Avg $.74 an item

I went to get just a few coupon items and got some really good deals

30 Country Time / Koolaid Mixes for - $.50 each
4 Fish Sticks/nugget boxes for - $.25 each
6 Disinfectant Wipes - $1 each
6 Nabisco Snak packs - $.63 each
2 Lysol All Purpose Cleaner - $1.00 each
5 Hormel Compleats Michrowavable Meals - $.69 each (not pictures....missed a bag)
4 Pop Tarts - $1.50 (not pictured...and not on sale but needed it)
1 Window Cleaner $1.79 (not on sale but needed it...)

I don't go to the commissary often but this trip was a success for me and all the items I got were items that were low or non existent in my stockpile. My goal was to only spend $30 this trip but I found the Country Time sale and couldn't pass that up so I decided to not get as many of the other item's I had coupons for to help bring the cost down. Not too bad.
