Shaw's trip

I haven't had one of these shopping trips in a LONG time - there were sales on good stockpile items AND I had multiple coupons! A friend sends me his extra coupon inserts once he's taken what he wants and I had as many as 12 copies of certain inserts to use. Shaw's once again had the better sales this week, and the savings showed!

I did learn a lesson today: Shaw's limits you to 6 double coupons in a transaction - so the coupons I used for the Whole Fruit Sorbets didn't all double as I had hoped...but I know to watch that for next time and split my transactions to make sure I get all my double coupons!


Here's what I took home:

3.44lb bananas - on sale for $0.39/lb
2 bags Sunkist Almond Accents - BOGO(used one $0.50 coupon, PLUS the display had a tearpad with a $0.50 coupon!)
3 lbs cubed steak (on UNADVERTISED sale at $1.99/lb!)
2 cans Hunt's pasta sauce at $1.00 each
6 boxes Prince Pasta - 10/$10 (used $1/6 store printable)
9 Knorr/Lipton Rice Sides - 10/$10 (used 3 $1/3 coupons)
6 bottles Diet Coke - 10/$10
12 boxes Kelloggs cereal (Mini Wheats and Rice Krispies) - $2.50/ea (used 12 $1/1 coupons!)
14 Glaceau Vitamin Waters - 10/$10 (used 14 $1/1 coupons! Freebie!!)
5 Colombo yogurts - 10/$6 (used $1/5 coupon)
12 Whole Fruit sorbets - $2.99 (used 12 $0.75/1 coupons)
1 Quilted Northern Ultra Plush 12 dbl roll - $5.99 (used $1/1 coupon)
1 Brawny 8 roll paper towel - $5.99 (used $1/1 store printable)
2 Wrigley's gums - 10/$10 (used 2 FREE GUM coupons - FREEBIE!

Total: $216.08
Store savings: $84.93
Coupon savings: $53.50
PLUS - I got a catalina for 2 free movie passes for buying the Kellogg's cereals, AND our Shaw's does a gas rewards program with the local stations - so I earned 2 free movie passes and $0.10/gallon off gas! That adds about $26 additional savings!!!
