Hey you guys. Sooooooooooooo I went shopping yesterday. I had a blast cause I was with my friend but I was upset at my stores. First off, we live in a very small city so we don’t have much out here…. or many multiples of one store. For example, the one Ralph’s store is the ONLY Ralph’s store for about 40 or so miles. With that said, when a certain item is gone, it’s gone. Alot of the things on my lists for the trip were not available. That sucked.
As for Ralph’s they decided to change their coupons policy which made my shopping trip there a bust !!!! I have to figure out some shopping alternatives. Overall it was not good shopping yet i was in excellent company.
On the upside Target was not a disappointment. As a matter a fact, Target ended up paying me back ( in coupons) for some of my shopping trip. I spent 5 dollars Out Of Pocket (oop) and received 9 dollars worth of savings coupons for 6 dollars worth of product which means they actually gave me 3 dollars. Subtract the 5 that I spent and I am really out 2 dollars. YES!!!!! So for 2 dollars I got a gallon of milk, 6 nail files, 2 Gillette deodorants, 1 Gillette men’s body wash, 1 bottle of Nivea lotion, One shirt, 2 packs of pantiliners, a bottle of Ken’s salad dressing, 2 boxes of Potatoes, 1 pack of starburst, and 4 packs of 5 Gum…… All for 2 dollars. Even if I hadn’t gotten the coupons printed at the register it would have been all of that for 5 dollars. AMAZING.
At Ralph’s I got 1 bag of rice (because of the stupid change in policy), two packs of starburst, and a toothbrush. I paid 4 cent (tax on the toothbrush)
At Wal-Mart, picked up a fly swatter (missing from picture), mayonnaise, 2 nail polishes, and soy sauce for less than a dollar. (I’ll round up to a dollar)
I also went to Albertson’s with my friend from savinitup.com. I got one Lawry’s seasoning for 50 cent (missing from the picture). She got the same seasoning plus 6 large bags of Lays chips and 6 2litter sodas and I think something else….. all for only 10 dollars. We also wanted pasta that would have been free (on sale for a dollar and we have a dollar off coupon) but they were all out. I got my first RAIN CHECK!
Here is a pic of all my stuff except the fly swatter and the Lawry’s seasoning.
TOTAL: $3.54 spent (after printed coupons from Target) or $6.54 OOP
