Since I was feeling bad last week, I didn't make it out to any of the stores. Today I realized that it had to be today, even though it was rainy and the temp was dropping rapidly.
First I went to Tom Thumb, aren't with a handful of store coupons (from the ad)/manufacturer coupons to stack.
Here's what I got at Tom Thumb:
Two Ken's @$0.99 each with store coupon--used 2 $1/1 =FREE
Two Danimals Crunchers @ $1.69 each--Used $1/2 printable= $1.19 each
Two Chex @ $0.99 each--Used $0.50/2 (doubled) = $0.49 each
Two Nature Valley @ $1.79 each--Used $0.50/2 (doubled) = $1.29 each
Was a little bummed when I got to the store because only the Nature Valley Crunchy were included, and I prefer the sweet and salty variety, but I decided to give them a try anyway.
Total Shelf Price: $25.32
Total Sale Price (After Store Coupon): $10.92 (Already 57% savings)
Price Paid After Coupons: $5.92 (77% Savings)
It also printed me a $5/$20 coupon good through the end of the month, so I'm hoping there's a good sale next week so I can make use of those extra savings!
Then it was off to Albertsons. I grabbed a few Mega Items, and a few other things on my list, and then my coupons and I wandered around a bit, so I found a few things to buy that I had not intended to, but all good deals.
Here's what I grabbed:
There are two fuzzy impulse buys there in the foreground. $9.99 slippers marked down to $2.49. I bought a size too big for each of my girls, and plan to keep them for stocking stuffers. The little one was with me, but I told her she couldn't have them yet, and I'm betting she completely forgets before long.
I'm not going to itemize everything I bought in this trip, but I paid $30.57 in all, and my receipt says I saved $64.92 so that means the shelf price of everything was $95.49, so I saved 68%.
All said today, I spent $36.49 on items that sale for $120.81, for an average of 70% saved at both stores. That's right about where I like my savings rate to be when using coupons, and I was about to stock up on some snack items we've been without for quite some time around here.
Did you do any last minute shopping today?
