All that and a few bags of chips

Ahh...another banner day at the supermarket. We didn't need a whole lot, but there were some good sales on stuff we will definitely use so I extended the budget a bit this week. By extend, I mean I was planning on spending about $15, but the final bill will end up closer to $50. That'll put me at about $275 for the month. That magic number gets closer every time!

It started with the 12 packs of Pepsi. They were 5/$10 (already 60% off) BUT there was a coupon in the store flyer that was buy 5 get one Mountain Dew 12 pack free. So I got 6 of them for $1.50 each. Ball park hot dogs were 2/$3, and I had a $1 off coupon that I printed a few times from Coupons.com....so those were $0.50 each. Got 2 boxes of Honey Nut Cheerios for $1.50 each between the sale and coupons, 2 boxes of Pop Secret for $0.70 each, and a few other items that were part of a General Mills promotion....

Here's what the final tally looked like:
Total paid: $38.09
Total saved: $48.01 (coupons and store savings)

That's pretty impressive, especially since my cart was pretty full. BUT it didn't stop there....that GM promotion was to buy a certain number of General Mills products (all of which were on a store discount of some kind) and get 2 free movie tickets. I made sure that I met the minimum, and walked away with a coupon code for 2 free movie passes worth $25.50. SOOOO.....my total savings was ACTUALLY $73.51. I got $141.60 worth of stuff for $38 bucks. My husband thinks my giddiness is cute. I feel a little like an evil mastermind ;)
