I started out this morning a little frustrated because my papers didn’t include several of the coupons I was hoping to use. It didn’t help matters that I had sneaked Trouble’s special blankie into the wash, not realizing that she, being obsessed with the washer, would see it tumbling around and completely freak out. It was hard to concentrate over the hour-long scream fest that ensued, and I completely forgot to print another free avocado coupon while assembling my list.
My grocery outing itself, however, was a joy. Trouble was in exceptionally good spirits, having made a full recovery from her earlier trauma, and we zipped through Publix without forgetting a single thing (except my free avocado coupon!) CVS was similarly delightful, and the wonderful manager there had no problem accepting my 2-days-expired Extra Care Bucks.
At Publix I spent $26.76 for $83.77 worth of groceries, a savings of 68%.
(4) $1 off 3 Bird’s Eye Steam Fresh Vegetables (Smart Source insert, 9/26)
(1) $1 off 2 Oscar Mayer Hot Dogs (Smart Source insert, 9/26)
(1) Free Energizer Recharge Batteries (received in mail)
At CVS I spent $0.33 for $9.22 worth of groceries, a savings of 96%.
$2.80 ECBs (expired 10/19)
(1) Free CVS Hand Sanitizer Pen (CVS Twitter Promotion–Expired)
Altogether, I spent $27.09 for $92.99 worth of groceries, an average savings of 71% for the day.
Combined with my Sunday totals, this week I spent a total of $45.53 for $336.09 worth of groceries and drugstore merchandise, an average savings of 86% for the week.
