Today's Shopping Trip :: Around $40 for $95 Worth of Products!

This morning I ran out for a quick morning of coupon shopping!  I made four stops: Dollar General, Walgreens, Nichols and Apple Market.  To make things easier on myself, so I didn't have to take four different pictures and write four different posts, I just compiled them all together into one shopping trip post.

Here are the details:


Walgreens ::

(4) Hefty Storage Bags, $3.49 each BOGO.  I used (2) $1/2 coupons from inserts = $1.25 each.

Total amount BEFORE coupons and rewards promotions :: $14.61

Total amount AFTER coupons :: $.03 
*I used the coupons listed above, as well as a $2 RR I earned on Sunday.  I also had $3.60 leftover on a giftcard from a return they had to issue me due to their error on Sunday.

Total Savings Percentage :: 100%


Dollar General ::

(4) Head & Shoulders 2 in 1 Shampoo, $2.50--used (2) $5/2 coupons from inserts = FREE

Total amount BEFORE coupons :: $11.03

Total amount AFTER coupons :: $1.03 (just tax)

Total Savings Percentage :: 91%



Apple Market ::

(6) Totino's Pizzas, $1.00 each--used  (2) $1/3 HERE = $.33 each

(1) Buitoni Linguine Pasta, $2.19--used $1/1 from inserts = $.19!


Total amount BEFORE coupons :: $8.68

Total amount AFTER coupons :: $2.68

Total Savings Percentage :: 70%



Nichols ::

(1) Hefty Trash Bags, $8.39--price matched to Dollar General for $5--used $.55/1 from inserts = $3.90

(2) Capri Sun, $2.99--price matched to Dollar General for $2--used $1/2 HERE = $1.00 each

(2) Kool-Aid Jammers, $2.99--price matched to Walmart for $1.88--used $1/2 HERE = $.94 each

(1) Foster Farms Corn Dogs, $6.00--used $1/1 HERE = $4.00

(2) Crystal Light Drink Mixes, $1.50--used $1/2 HERE = $.50 each

(2) Pace Picante Sauce, $1.50--used $.40/2 from inserts = $1.10 each

(2) Gerber Baby Food, $1.29--used $1/2 from inserts = $.29 each

(1) Pilgrims Chicken Boneless Skinless Thighs, $3.34--used $1/1 HERE = $1.34

(1) 10lb roll Ground Beef, $18.80--no coupons, just a nice deal!  If I would have purchased 10lbs ground beef at another store I would have paid twice as much!

Total amount BEFORE coupons and price matching :: $60.74 (would have been even more with regular priced meat)

Total amount AFTER coupons and price matching :: $39.49

Total Savings Percentage :: 35%.....unless you factor in that the meat at another store would have probably cost $35 or more.  That would give me a savings percentage of about 50%.



Total ALL STORES TOGETHER BEFORE coupons :: $95.06

Total ALL STORES TOGETHER AFTER coupons :: $43.23

Total Savings Percentage :: 55%
