Walmart Shopping Trip :: January Shopping Trip #9


I ran into Walmart today to see what freebies + overage I could find, however, my trip was a little disappointing.  My local Walmart either didn't carry some of the items, or they were all out of stock of the others that I had included on my "shop at Walmart for $1 and Under post."  So, I was only able to use (3) $1/1 Sunbird product coupons to get about $.66 of overage for my items.  


We were running low on fruit, so I had to go ahead and buy some even though I wasn't able to get as nice of a deal with overage as I was hoping.


Here's what I bought....

Bananas $1.57/lb (no coupon)
Apples $1.57/lb (no coupon)
Oranges $.48 each (no coupon)
Baby Carrots $1.44 (no coupon)
Great Value Mandarin Oranges, $.82 each (this is just about the only kind of fruit I can get my hubby to eat, so I had to stock up.  I'm trying to get him to be more health conscious! ) (no coupon)

3 Sunbird Seasoning Packets, FREE + $.66 overage after coupon

Total amount BEFORE coupons :: $18.58

Total amount AFTER coupons :: $15.58

No, the savings percentage isn't very impressive, but we all have to buy items sometimes without coupons.  Like I said above, if I had been able to find some of the products that would have produced overage then I would have been able to save on these items even though I didn't have a coupon for them.  Unfortunately, it just didn't work out that way today.  

January Monthly Spending Total :: $91.63 for $287.12 worth of items.  69% savings so far.....
