Shopping and More Shopping 5/3/10

I got my check from church for cleaning in April so I did some shopping.....$50 sure doesn't go far!
At the grocery store I got:
2- Maruchan noodles, on sale for $1 each, used $1/2 coupon making them .50 each.
Kroger Milk Chocolate breakfast drink 5 pack, $2.50  ( this is my breakfast)
Country Crock, on sale for $1, used .40 coupon doubled, making it .20.
3- Mentos Gum, on sale for $1, used 3- .55 coupons doubled to $1, making them free.
4-Big K 2 ltrs of soda on sale for .59  (I'm even trying Dr. K in place of my Dr. Pepper, which I might say, is quite the sacrifice for me!)
3-Green Giant frozen boxed veggies, on sale for $1 each, used $1/3 coupon making them .67 each.
Red Baron Pizza Slices, on sale for $3.99, used $1 coupon (mailing in for $3.99 refund)
Pam Grilling Spray, on sale for $2.50, used $1 coupon making it $1.50.
Pillsbury Crescent Rolls, not on sale for $1.79, but used .70 coupon doubled to $1, making them just .79.
I spent $14.76....saved $8.80 with coupons....total savings including sale pricing was 53%.

The Mentos gum is thrown into my gift tote for later use for part of gifts to the kids.


Another of my shopping trips was to Walgreen's.  I had $13 in register rewards to use from the week before, so that sure helped!
I got:
2-Kellogg's Rice Krispies cereal, on sale  2 for $5, used $1.50/2 coupon making them $1.75 per box and I got $2 in register rewards.
box of envelopes, .69 with Walgreen's coupon.
2-Stouffer's Meatloaf frozen meals, on sale 2/$5  (used $3 and $2 rr's towards these) and got $1 in rr's.
Twix minis and Milky Way Minis, on sale 2 for $5 (used $3 and $2 rr's on these), got back $1 in rr's.
Soft Soap body wash, on sale for $2.99  (used $3 rr with 1 cent overage I guess off the envelopes), got back $2 in rr's
Sure deoderant, on sale for $1.50 with Walgreen's coupon and used manufacturers coupon for $1.50 off making it free.
Veet gel, $6.99, used $3 Walgreen's coupon and $3 manufacturers coupon making it just .99
Pert Plus shampoo, on sale for $1.99, used $1.50 coupon making it just .49.

I paid $7.72 of which $2.06 of that was sales tax.  I got back a total of $6 in register rewards.  I'm a little disappointed to have spent more than I got back in rr's this week.
I saved $25.39 in coupons including the rr's so that is great!


P.S.  My other shopping was at Wal mart where I didn't use any coupons.  I needed to get card stock, page protectors, and printer paper and Kansas postcards towards Jasmine's project and a lapbook she is making.  I did pick up the latest All You magazine while there too.  Spent $17.13.
I also went to Pet Co to get the Science Diet dog food for my bzz campaign, paying .77 for the sales tax with the free coupon they sent me.  The dog food was $10.99 for the bag.
I also added a few dollars into my gas tank to go with gas money my mom gave me to run her around.
Hence, my $50 didn't last long, but I had fun, and I got things I needed.
