Went to 2 stores this morning, Wal-Mart and Target.
Target: I usually only go here for 2 things. The waffles that my little guy can eat (by Earth's Best) and the Kashi cereal bars that my 4th daugther can eat (dairy free).
The waffles were $2.79. The Kashi bars are usually $2.79 but were on clearance today for $1.95 AND I had a '$1 off 2' coupon for them!! I came home and printed another one for hubby to take and buy some more =)
Their Eggo Cinnamon Toast waffle were on sale this week for $1.72 (Walmart's normal price on these is $1.98) and I had a coupon for $1 off 2.
I also looking in their Christmas clearance section and nothing was screaming at me to buy it. I DID however snag a pk of 70ct muffin tins for $.44!
Wal-Mart is where I do most of my shopping and I spent $113 there today.
I went to the clearance section first and got a pk of knock-off peppermint oreos ($.88), a box of chocolates ($1.25) and a set of 5 red plastic cups ($.50) since the ones we use are starting to crack.
The only killer deal I got here was on toilet paper. A 4 pk (each roll is BIG) of Scott's toilet paper was $2.64 and I had a $2 off coupon from Target, so the toilet paper ended up being $.64!!
We just got a Walmart flyer in the newspaper today and it CLEARLY states on the front that they DO take competitor's coupons!! YAY!!
I priced matched 7 items there today...the Eggo waffles (yes I bought them at both stores) =),
totinos-$.98 each, bananas-$.44 a lb, green peppers 2 for $1, 10# bag potatoes-$2.99, yogurt-$.38 each and 1 gal of Land O Lakes milk-$1.88.
I noticed that Target had a lot of toys on clearance at a pretty good price so I may go back and see what I can find for Ariel and Josh's birthdays coming up in February.
I still have to make one trip to Aldi tomorrow which should come in around $18.
So far so good!
