I went to Weis Markets to get a great deal on paper products, but they were all out. So, what was gonna be a "super savin' maven" trip turned essentially into a milk run...a really expensive milk run... You remember that milk and cereal deal I did 2 weeks ago? The one where I got 8 boxes of cereal for super-cheap? Yeah, all that cereal is gone. Two people went through 8+ boxes in 2 weeks! So, I had that dreaded four-letter word on my hands (N-E-E-D) on more than one front. Here's what I got:
(2) Tostitos BOGO @ $4.99
(3) Eggo waffles @ 3/$5 (trying to cut our cereal addiction)
(2) GM cereal $2.50 ea. (:O)
-$0.75/1 Cinn. Toast Crunch (doubles to $1.50)
(2) O.S. cranberry juice with calcium $1.79 (clearance!)
(1) Pillidelphia cooking cream $2
-$1/1 cooking cream
(1) A&W Root Beer 2 Liter (Coke prices were sooo high, so I subbed root beer) $1
(1) dozen eggs $1.89
(1) gal. milk $3.29
(2) Freschetta pizzas $5.50 ea.
-$1/1 Freschetta pizza
(1) Newspaper $2
Aaaaand here's where I nearly cried. Look at my cart again. It looks like nothing to me--a few pizzas, some chips... I was a little encouraged to see on my receipt that I had saved 35% ($23.60), but I still had to call my sister for some talk therapy. She told me about her latest trip where she spent $150 and saved 8%. I felt a little better. She also commented, "I've created a monster!," and it is so true. I'm pretty sure I'm "addicted to saving;" hopefully, I'll get over that soon (dad did say not to take up gambling). In the meantime, I'll focus on the CVS run I did on Saturday. I was pretty excited. Here's what I got:
(2) Fun-sized bags M&M's $2.50 ea.
-(2) $1.50/1 Mars candy (9oz.+) coupons
(2) Fun-Sized bags Hershey's milk chocolate bars $2.50 ea.
-(2) $1/1 Hershey's candy (any, 9 oz. +) coupons
Total: $1.60 (on CVS gift card)
ECBs received: 3
Credit in Savings Star account: $1 (for buying M&Ms)
It's like I paid $1.60 for 4 bags of candy!!! I saved 90% off retail price ($4 ea.)!! I was purdy excited!! See, I AM a "super savin' maven"!
