Albertson's Doubler Run 6/12: P&G Promo and REAL food!

Many people say that you can only use coupons on things that they never use.  This is somewhat true.  However, you can use coupons to get things like catalinas to use towards food that you do use.  I had to buy some items this week for a meal I was bringing to a friend that DID NOT have coupons!  (Gasp!)  I looked everywhere for any kind of coupon, but no such luck.  I could have gone to Winco or Walmart and maybe have gotten those items cheaper.  However, time is money, so I decided to just get the things at Albertsons.  Luckily, I was able to use a coupon Albertson's sent to me in my email for $5/$25 for that purchase, bringing the expense of the items I had to get down. 

Albertson's is also having a pretty great promo (if you got multiple copies of the P&G insert, see why and how you can do this here).  I was able to get quite a few toiletries for $4.10 (after tax and catalina).  It could have been less, but I didn't know how much the body wash was going to be and I needed to bring the total before coupons to at least $20 so I could get the $5 catalina.  Here are the pictures and what I did:
