So despite a few disappointments (no bananas at all at HyVee & no Finish Dish Detergent @ Wags) during my shopping run tonight, I made out like a bandit!
HyVee had the salad & milk $0.99, the OJ for $1.99; those are the only things I paid full price for.
The pizza, cottonelle wipes & Philly cooking cream cheese were free with coupons. (Pizza for the complaint I sent in, Cottonelle for the Get Fresh with a Friend promo and the Cream Cheese from my House Party)
I had 3 $1 coupons for the Lunchables making the 3/$5 sale a steal at a $2 total! The Tylenol Precise Patch was free after coupons, except for a glich at the register with a total moron cashier who couldn't figure out how to reprice the coupon, so I had to buy the M & Ms to take care of the 1 cent overage.
Also, the Powerbar came as a free sample in the mail today.
Not too shabby for 45 minutes away from home. Also, a big thanks to HyVee for the free balloon & free slice of cheese to keep Elliott happy while we were there.
