Wal-Mart Trip (Catch-Up)!

I shopped a few weeks back and didn't get the chance to sit and blog about it. LOL So here 'tis!

I shopped the Wal-Mart in Midlothian and boy oh boy do I just love that Wal-mart! The cashiers are friendly, the CSM's are helpful and the service is just good!

I had a young man check me out and I asked him before we began if he was okay with ad match-ups and coupons. He said, sure and his body language told me he really didn't mind. Whew, one hurdle crossed. LOL

I had a good size list and saved a ton!

My total ad match-up savings was $76.26 - woo-hoo! My total coupon savings was $73.36!

I matched an ad for store brand frozen veggies - I got six bags of frozen carrots for .69 each! I have lots in my freezer for soups and stews! Yeah!

Another ad match-up was tomato sauce 5 for $1.00 - love it! I got 20 cans! My pantry is stocked back up!

Oh one of our favorite cereals is Cheerios! Well I matched an ad for $1.50 a box! Woo-Hoo! That saved me $2.08 per box! Plus I used $1/2 coupons so I actually paid $1 a box! And I got 6 free books as well! Woo-Hoo!

One of the boys favorite snacks is apples dipped in caramel - I matched an ad for $1 per bottle and stocked us up! I saved $1.38 per bottle! I had one $1/2 coupon so I used that as well!

My Bug has decided he loves the Berry flavored Fuze drinks - I matched an ad for $.88 (saved me $.12 off the wm price) plus I used my $1/2 coupons and got each for $.38 each! Yeah!!!

Bugs other favorite snack is yogurts. And the "crush cup" is high on his list!!! I used $1 off one coupons and got them for $1/4.

Another ad match here - $1.79, which is $.49 savings!

I used a $.55 off coupon and got some yummy white chocolate mocha coffee creamer for $1.45.

I matched an ad for eggs - $.88 per dozen! Yippee! I saved $.76 per carton!
