Last night I sat up late, with my laptop, scissors and printer all fired up. I sorted, printed, clipped and got ready for today’s trips. I had 4 stops planned and they started, as always, at Shaw’s.
My goal there was Stonyfield Yogurt. Regular blended cups on sale for .50 each and Greek cups $1.00. Have you tried their caramel Greek? Yeah, Baby.
I bought 4 blended cups @ .50 each. I used (2) .50/2 mq’s. (Manufacturer’s coupons) which doubled, making all 4 free.
I bought 4 Greek cups @ $1 each. I used (2) $1/2 mq’s, making them $2 for 4. (worth it)
I also found 3 bags of sliced snacking apples in the produce section marked down to .50 each. These are a huge bonus for school lunches and snacks.
Total for Shaw’s..8 organic yogurts, 3 big bags of sliced apples $3.50
Next I scooted up the road to Family Dollar. Not a store I frequent much, but I was super excited to get this deal. 64 oz Mott’s juice or 6 pack, on sale for $2. (usually $2.85) I bought 2 64 oz bottles of juice @ $2 each. Used (2) $1/1 mq’s, making them $1 each. Seriously? In our house we cut most fruit juice 50/50 with water to lessen the amount of sugar the kids are getting and that is a LOT of juice for $2.
After getting my juice on at FD, I went on down the road to Walgreen’s to grab a couple more bottles of Dawn while they’re on sale for .99 each. I bought 2 Dawn Hand Renewal dish soaps @ .99 each. Usually $3.18, used in store coupon (flyer) to take them down to .99 each. Then used (1) $1/2 mq making them .49 each. I usually grab a couple of these each day the sale runs, definitely a stock up price on dish soap.
Also while at Walgreens, I picked up my free 8×10 photo from a few days ago. Walgreens often has free codes for photo services and this week there was one for a free 8×10. I love these for the grandparents!
And finally, I saved the best for last..Target. Ahh..just typing the name relaxes me. I should
get help write about it more. I had two transactions this morning, the first was…
Bought 2 Quilted Northern 30 pk of double rolls, on sale for $15.00 each. Used (2) $1.50/1 mq, used (1) $1/1 Target mobile q, and 15% Cartwheel. There’s also a .50 coupon out there, but I forgot that one. Very sad. Not really. So out of pocket I paid $24.65 and got a $10 gift card back. (promotional deal in the store for buying two of the Quilted Northern)
Second transaction. Bought 1 gallon of Up&Up bleach, on sale for $1. Used (1) $1/1 Target Mobile q, making it free.
Bought 4 Vitamin Waters @ .80 each. (the orange have no sodium! Screw you, kidney stones!)
Bought 1 Noosa yogurt. Ridiculously good and ridiculously expensive @ $2.39 each. I used (1) Target q (printable from Target’s website) and one .55/1 mq making it .74, still expensive for a yogurt, but wanted one to put in the freezer. They make to die for frozen yogurts as a treat.
Bought 4 Hot Pockets $2 each. Used (1) $1/4 Target q. Used (2) $1/2 mq. Used 10% Cartwheel, making them about $1.10 each.
Bought 1 Airborn vitamin c @ .99. Used (1) $1.50/1 mq, making it better than free.
Grand total? $9.85, which I gladly paid with the $10 gift card I had just gotten from the toilet paper deal.
So what did I spend today on everything I got?
Target: $22.46 and saved about $40.
Walgreens: $1.09 and saved $5.36.
Family Dollar: $2.10 and saved about $3.60.
Shaw’s: $3.50 and saved $8.00.
$29.15. I’ll take it! The toilet paper alone would have cost me $30 out of pocket, since they were $15 each at Target, so pretty much all of the rest? Free.
