Advertised and unadvertised deal shopping at Meijer

I went to Meijer today to check out prices on this week's sunscreen deal for you and to shop the sales. I found a few unadvertised offers to share too!

First up: Sunscreen Catalina Deal

Banana Boat and Hawaiian Tropic sunscreens are part of a "Buy $25, Get $10 Catalina" offer this week at Meijer.

My Algonquin Meijer was out of every Hawaiian Tropic product other than the after-sun aloe, so I collected prices for Banana Boat:

Banana Boat Sport 8oz. and 10oz. bonus bottles: $6.79
Banana Boat Kids 8oz. tubes: $7.79
Banana Boat Protect & Hydrate 6oz. bottles: $7.99
Banana Boat Triple Defense Men 6oz. bottles: $7.99

Ibotta has four different $1.25 offers running on these four varieties of Banana Boat. The 6/29 SS has a $1 coupon, and here's a $1 printable.

With four $1 coupons, you could buy one of each ($30.56.) Use four $1 coupons. Pay $26.56 and get a $10 Catalina. Get $1.25 back for each item from Ibotta. That's $11.56 for four, or $2.89 each!

Because my store had the 10-ounce bonus-size Sport bottles, I opted to do the deal a different way so I could take home more sunscreen.

I bought three Banana Boat Sport 10oz. bottles and one Banana Boat Kids 8oz. tube. I used four $1 coupons. I paid $24.16 and got a $10 Catalina. I got $2.50 back from Ibotta, so that's $11.66 for four, or about $2.92 each. For the extra .03 per bottle, I ended up with 38 ounces of sunscreen vs. 30 over the original scenario -- almost like getting another free bottle!


Unadvertised Orange Juice Deal

I saw shelf tags near the orange juice advertising a "Buy $10, Get $3 Catalina" offer on Meijer brand juices. I bought five 59-ounce cartons of Meijer OJ for $2 each. I paid $10 and got a $3 Catalina. That's $7 for five cartons, or $1.40 each!


Unadvertised Bath Tissue Deal

I spotted a "Spend $10, Save $3" ecoupon on Mperks for Meijer bath tissue. I bought one Meijer 6 Mega Roll bath tissue for $6.29 (equivalent to 24 regular rolls - they are some seriously large rolls!). I also bought one Meijer 6 Double Roll bath tissue for $3.99. That's $10.28 -- after the ecoupon, I paid $7.28. If we look at the regular roll equivalencies, this works out to about .20 per regular roll. That's a good price.


Advertised Deals

I also did the "Buy 8" sale on Keebler products. I bought four $1.69 Keebler Club Crackers and Town House Pretzel Thins. And, I bought four $1.49 Keebler cookies. I used two $1-off-2 cracker coupons from the 6/29 RP, and I used four $1.50 cookie coupons from Kellogg's Family Rewards. This dropped the crackers to $1.19 per box, and all of the cookies were free.

Lastly, I did a round of "Buy 10 for $10, Get the 11th FREE." I bought nine Old El Paso taco shells for $1 each. I also bought two bags of Pepperidge Farm Goldfish crackers for $1 each. I used three $1-off-3 printable coupons for the taco shells. I paid $8 for everything -- like getting the taco shells for about .66 per box, paying for one $1 Goldfish and getting the next bag free!

Now I've got the $10 sunscreen Catalina and the $3 juice Catalina for my next trip to Meijer...

How to make a large utility tote for less than $20

Head to any swimming pool or park this summer, and it's highly likely you'll see quite a few large utility totes. These totes have become extremely popular over the last few years. They're nearly the size of a laundry basket, but they're lightweight and collapse flat for storage. A steel rectangular frame holds the top in an always-open position, making it easy to grab whatever's inside without having to dig around for it.

Large utility totes like these don't come cheap, unfortunately. Thirty-One Gifts, the home party company that popularized this style of bag, sells these for $35 each (though you can sometimes find them cheaper on Ebay.) Target.com also carries them for $32.99. Meijer used to carry them for $24.99, and I picked mine up there on clearance for $11.24 last summer - such a deal.

Aside from finding one on clearance, though, what if you don't want to spend this much money on a bag? I wondered how much it would cost to simply make one. If you've been wanting a large utility tote without spending too much, and you have minimal sewing skills (like me!) read on and learn how you can make your own large utility tote from one yard of fabric for less than $20.
