Shopping Success! (sort of)
So, being the last day of the sale I expected them to be wiped out and they pretty much were. However I grabbed a few things I needed and did get my rain checks for the Lowe's cards (totally out - I want 6 they only gave me 4 - dumb), dog food, and razors. Also I found $1/1 Manufacturer Pepsi Next 2 liter coupons - - - woohoo- - - that will make me money tomorrow when combined with the store coupon and the sales price of $1.25. (so keep an eye out so you can make money too!)
***A few notes: 1. my store takes expired competitor and store coupons up to 2 weeks. 2. my store does not make me break up my order to use multiple $/$$ coupons.
Here is what I got...any guesses at my total - keep reading to find out:
Purina Beneful Dog food x 14(only 2 shown) = -$17.57 (14 of each $2 man and $2 comp)
Milk = $3.29
Nestle Brisk x 3 = $5 (three $2 publix)
Salad x 2 = $4
Deli Cheese = $3.77
Deli Meat = $10.19
Flat out wraps x 2 = $6.38
Lady Speedstick x 6 = 0 (three free wyb kotex, 3 BOGO)
Kotex x 3 = -$1.53 (three $1 man, three $1 publix)
carefree x 15 = -$10.65
Shredded cheese = 2.5
Naturally Fresh Dressing x 2 = $5
Lawrys Marinades x 20 = $11.30 (twenty $1 manu)
Goldfish Bread = $2.29 (one $1 peelie)
Sirloin = $9.43
Baked Potatos = $2.99
Huggies x 5= $34.95 (five $2 tq and five $2 man)
Publix baby wash x 3 = 0 (free wyb huggies)
Publix baby shampoo x 2 = 0 (free wyb huggies)
My total before coupons was $283, I used 3 $4 off of $25 Dollar General coupons and 6 $5 off of $30 Publix Spring Cleaning coupons. I still have 40 of the dog food coupons coming and 20 razor coupons coming - so I am excited about that! Even though I got a lot, I will probably go back Friday because of Dollar General released another $5/25 good for Friday only. So drum roll please.....
My total after taxes was right around $15 and I saved $329.54. So given that my monthly budget for everything is right around $150 I think I am right on track!
Have you had any good trips lately?? Let me know!
