So this weekend we stopped by Safeway and picked up cards (they were having a great deal!).  I wasn't going to post it but then realized the Catalina's that I earned were going to come off my grocery budget ... and in return I need to the count the money I spent in my budget, so here's this weekends transactions:

   * get an additional $4 Catalina when you bought 6 cards between 4-30 and 5-1

Transaction #2 Total:  $5.97 ... and received the $5.00 and $4.00 Catalina's

Safeway Total:  $12.54 spent for 6 cards and received $14.00 in Catalina's.  That's a pretty good deal!
