fooled by the small print

I must be a bit out of practice.. I went into CVS today for just a few items that I saw in this weeks ad without checking out other bloggers or Hot Coupon World first….

I THOUGHT I was going to get 2 ECB’s for buying my gallon of milk… but I totally missed the whole section below it in the ad that states that you need to ALSO buy 4 boxes of cereal. 😦

Here’s what my ad said:

Milk 2.79

2 Extra Care Bucks

=.79

“It’s like getting your mild for .79!

Then down below it, there’s a sale on cereal 4/$10 and THEN a statement about the 2 ECB’s WHEN YOU BUY BOTH in small print.

Well, I am a bit annoyed about this… it was VERY misleading if you ask me!

Anyway…

The Crest Pro Health deal worked just fine

I bought 2 Crest Pro Health for 2.88 each used a .75 off coupon and a $1 off coupon…and earned $4 ECB’s =.01 OOP for both!!!

I also picked up a raincheck for the FREE after ECB’s Edge Shave Gel.

Back in the Saddle at Publix

publixchecker

Whewwwww… it’s really been awhile since I’ve “shopped”. Quite literally I don’t think I’ve been shopping more than once since mid. February. (Last week I made a run on Walmart since I had no coupons nor any time to look online for deals and spent a whopping $170 including new towels and other misc. stuff)

So, with only last Sunday’s paper worth of coupons in hand (along with some I printed last night) I managed to weave myway through the aisles and still managed to save more than I spent. 🙂

I must admit though, that I haven’t had time to “file” my coupons or even organize them… so this trip was NOT EASY!!! I really appreciate my coupon binder during times like this! I’ve got to get back to organizing my coupons before my next grocery trip!

Anyway.. a few of my favorite deals this week were:

Publix cola – On Sale 2/$1 Use Food Lion $1/3 and get 3 for .50! (this link will only let you print once, but it gives you the option to change the number you print out! Make sure you get a few!)

Kelloggs Frosted Flakes ON SALE BOGO. I also found peelies for BOGO on any Kellogg’s cereal… peeled it and combined them for 2 FREE boxes!!

Hillshire Farms Deli Meat 3.99  – .55 Recent insert stacked with -1 Target Printable=2.44

* near my Hillshire Farms section were some blinkies for the following: FREE LAYS wyb Hillshire Farms & Sara Lee Bread. My Sara Lee bread is marked down to 1.99 and I needed bread anyway so I also did this deal!

* On my FREE LAYS was a peelie for $1 off wyb Lays and Lays dip. So I grabbed a dip for $1 less than usual. 🙂

Oreo Cookies BOGO Used $1 off wyb Nabisco cookies & Milk peelie I grabbed back in February. (used 2 of these since we buy 2 gallons of milk a week and the cookies were BOGO anyway!)

Hellman’s Mayo BOGO used 2 IP’s ($1 off- PRINT 2!) got both jars for $2.99 = 1.49 each.

Ken’s Dressing  BOGO a favorite in our house… used this Sunday’s inser Q $1/2 = 2.19/2=1.09 each

Idahoan Mashed Potatoes ON SALE .50 each Buy 3 use .75 off IP q= 3/.75!!!  (we’ve never had these before, but for that cheap I’m gonna try them!)

Well, those are the ones I remember the most! Overall I came home with a receipt today that reads:

Total Spent: 71.44

Total Saved 79.24!!!

Publix Savings More than Double!

cvs-and-wags-016

Have I ever mentioned that I (heart) Publix?????

Please ignore the date in my picture.. this was taken today.. I just didn’t realize this camera had a date on it!

Since this is a whole new year of savings I was curious to see how my “percentages” of savings would look after doing an entire year of couponing, so I started a brand new spreadsheet just for 2009. So far.. I’ve already saved 84%! 🙂

My trip to Publix today was a big help.

Store coupon: 31.50 (this includes competitor coupons)

Vendor coupon: 12.04

Advertised Special Savings 37.22 (mostly BOGO’s)

Total savings: 80.76

Actual Payment Due: 32.97!

That’s over $100 worth of groceries for only $32!

2nd run on Walgreens

cvs-and-wags-013

I decided to swing by Walgreens again this week just because I missed my neighborhood WAGs after my difficulty at a different store earlier this week. 🙂

I managed to snag 2 more clearance Garnier Fructis conditioners. (My daughter’s FAV)

On sale 1.79×2=3.58

– 2.00 (I had 2 q’s from a recent insert)

– 3.58 WAGS q in the montly booklet. (says $2 off , but it adjusts down to the price paid.. however, it doesn’t realize I used coupons from Garnier so this is a $2 money maker for me!)

I also found the elusive Walgreens coloringbook! (It has coupons in it!) .99

Children’s Motrin 5.99 – $1 insert q- $1 from Coloringbook= 3.99 UPDATE: I just realized I made a big mistake here! There is also an in ad q for $2 off in this week’s flyer!!!! argghhh I just gave away 2 whole dollars with this momentary lack of memory!!!

The covergirl bronzer was on clearance for 1.59 – $1 insert q= .59

Paid using 3 RR from earlier this week (I still have 5 left)

Balance due was 1.27… which I put on my gift card from rebates from last month. 🙂

Hooray for Walgreens.. FREE stuff again!
