Next stop: Walgreens
All I got was 3 (yes, 3, obviously one is not pictured) packs of mechanical pencils for $.05 each.
Next I ran into CVS to use my lone Trident BOGO coupon. I would have had more, but I only got one paper because all the other papers were missing their inserts.
Next I went to Wal-Mart. I used my $2.00 Just Bunches coupon, some of my $3.00 Planters coupons, my $2.00 LiveActive cheese coupons, and my free Taste Escapes coupons. I also got some other things I needed. My total there was $14.11
After Wal-Mart I went into Food Lion. The juice was $2.00 after using the Food Lion $1 printable, I got 2 lbs. of strawberries and a pound of grapes by using the $2/$5 produce Food Lion printable, and free baby wipes and baby food with Food Lion printables. The cheese I got just because I needed it. I also got a frozen pizza to pop into the oven when I got home because I knew I'd be too tired to cook. My total was $14.23
Next I went to the other CVS because sometime during the course of the day I realized that I had let $20.00 in ECB's expire! Thankfully they are really nice there about letting you use them expired, but I didn't want to let them be any more "expired" than they already were, so I went ahead and used them. Thankfully it was a perfect week to need diapers!
1 pack of diapers = 11.49
1 Bic razor = 6.99
1 pack razor cartridges = 6.99
1 pack CVS pads = .99
1 bar CVS soap = .79
2 Trident gums = 1.49
1 gallon milk = 3.99
Total before coupons = $33.23
Minus $1 Huggies coupon
Minus (2) $4 Bic coupons
Minus $2 skincare coupon
Minus $.75 Trident coupon
Total after coupons = $21.48
Used $21 in ECB's
Total oop = $.55
Received back $6.99 in ECB's
Finally, I went to 2 different grocery salvage stores.
At the first store I paid $18 for all this. A rough estimation of what I would be willing to pay for this stuff at the grocery store with sales and coupons values it at around $45.00. That's a savings of $27.00, not off the regular price, but off sale price with coupons!
At the 2nd store I paid $20.00 for all this. A rough estimate of what I would be willing to pay for it values it at around $25.00. Not a huge savings there, but I did get it a little cheaper than I would with sales and coupons, and I didn't have to go through the trouble of clipping all the coupons.
My total for all this was $68.56. That's not quite 3 weeks worth of budget, but it should definitely last us at least 3 weeks with just a little restocking on the fresh foods every week.
