I spent over $50 this week on all these transactions so I decided this would be my shopping for two weeks, minus any freebies (or almost free) and fresh milk and produce. I did get 6 packages of Pampers for those first few months of bleary-eyed no-sleep newborn care, which is in less than 5 months!!
Lots of muffins mixes, Fiber 1 bars and other convenience items will come in handy at that time too. Low sugar yogurt and canned soup has already come in handy for quick food for my toddler. The last transaction you see which is included in the second picture has the items we need for this next few weeks. I used the final $15 catalina for those things including chicken, bell peppers, oranges, bananas, celery, onions, butter, french bread and sour cream. It was a fun couple of trips!
Transactions #1,#2, #3:
Transactions #4, #5, #6:
My trip to Walgreen's was last, with lots of freebies. The Splenda was free with internet coupons, so were the Reese's Whipps bars (thanks for the coupons, Marie!). The two Christmas candies were on 90% off and were for fillers in case I had too many coupons. The dish soap we actually needed, and was $0.54 after coupons. Oh, and if you look closely, I included one of the FAR items, Revlon blush, which was $9.99 and I put that on my rebate gift card. Total oop: $0, and I will receive over $10 on my gift card for next month!
