I need to say, I am so impressed with my $23.80 in coupons, the fact that we shopped sales for almost every item, that we earned 60 cents off per gallon of gas (bringing our total to $1.20 off per gallon) and that I earned a coupon for $2.50 off our next purchase!

59 items for $73.89 ~ not too shabby!
Especially considering that almost $11 was formula.

Oh, the cashier was impressed as well at all of the coupons and the fact that some were $1.00 off coupons. (Personally though, my favorites are the 75 cent off coupons because they double!)

Great job for a not so mega event. Now if you manage to only spend that much every week you will start drawing a crowd at the supermarket.

Only spending that much would be ideal! :)
