That's where I went yesterday - and I couldn't be more pleased with my purchases!! I spent a couple hours yesterday morning going through the ads and matching coupons with the ads and looking up internet printable coupons but after all was said and done it was so worth it!

I started off at Winn-Dixie where they had a Buy One Get One Free sale AND a $5.00 off $40 purchase coupon in their weekly sales ad (can pick these up at the front of the store.)
Barber Chicken Breasts $4.99 (BOGO Free) -1.00 off (I had 3 of these coupons I had printed off from here, but I don't think they are available anymore?)

Special K cereal
$3.99 (BOGOF) had -1.00 off coupon from newspaper

Hamburger Helper
10/$10.00 (-1.00 /2 coupon) try here too

Planter's Peanuts
$3.29 (BOGOF) there were peelies on top of jars for $1.00 off so used two of those coupons. Also go here for a mail-in offer form to receive a Mr. Peanuts baseball cap.

Dole Tender Greens Bagged Salads
$3.69 (BOGOF) had -$1.00/2 coupon from newspaper

Sliced Mushrooms


Chicken Breast

London Broil

Price before coupons and FREE price items removed: $115.02
Total after reward card scanned & coupons: $43.16

Next stop was Walgreen's. (No picture of this stuff...sorry!)
I actually spent more up front here but I'll be getting rebates back so it will work out in the end.

Had 4 purchases - the 1st two were for $12.00 each and it was 2 boxes of Thermacare neck wraps 2/$12.00 - I earned $5.00 RR (RR=register rewards...can be used just like cash on your next purchase) back for each of these purchases for a total of $10.00 so I spent $24.00 cash and got back $10.00 RR to use on my next 2 purchases. By purchasing these products I also qualified for EasySaver Rebate #26 where I'll receive $10.00 back on my gift card so essentially I will end up paying only $1.00/box for these Thermacare wraps.

3rd purchase:
(2)Oscar Mayer Bacon ($5.99) BOGOF
(2)Planters Honey Roasted peanuts ($3.49) BOGOF -3.00 off coupon here
Noxzema Bikini Razors $2.99/2 pk- go here for rebate form - will be free
Nabisco Graham Crackers $3.79
***special note here - this is one of my really DUH moments that I hate when I get home and realize I've done something stupid. This -3.00 off coupon for the peanuts says you have to purchase 3 Oscar Mayer, Nabisco or Kraft items as well as one Planters peanuts to get $3.00 off. Okay, I knew that going there and I knew I was going to buy my bacon there because it was a good price but what I didn't think about was the other item. This week Walgreen's has an in-ad coupon for KRAFT Mac&Cheese for .69 a box!! I could have bought a box of that! DUH!! No, but what do I do....I go pick up a box of Nabisco graham crackers for $3.79. Sure, we'll eat it...but when I picked it up I said to myself "man, I hate to buy this here for this price" but I did it anyway! Grrrrrrr

Okay, enough of my ranting, on with the price...after coupons this purchase cost me $8.75 (and I'll get another $3.00 of that back for the bikini shavers rebate)

4th and last purchase
Hefty ziplock freezer bags BOGOF -1.00/1 coupon (cut this off a previous box I had)
Hefty ziplock gallon bags ($2.99)
(2) Windex Wipes 2/$3.79 (-1.00/1 coupon) try here too...can print two of these
(2) Pledge Furniture polish 2/$7.00 (-3.00/2 coupon) received this in a sample that came in mail

After coupons I paid $3.82

Walmart was the last stop. My total before coupons was $126.00 and after coupons it was $76.22...but $14.56 of that was a wallet for Greg and $10.00 was 2 pair of shorts for me.

Everything else pictured here was $51.66!!!
