Oh how we shopped!

My husband and I have begun our workouts together again! This morning, when it was still dark, we did the first video! We had gotten pretty far into them when the baby got sick earlier this year and other things happened and exercise fell by the wayside. Taking care of ourselves in general, myself especially, tending to close relationships, important things like that, went to the back burner. But today is a new day and the world keeps on turning!
No time to waste, friends! Gotta seize the moments before they're gone! In life, in love, and in SHOPPING! :)

The youngest two and I went into Provo this morning. I was energized from the early morning workout and ready to take on the case lots!
First we hit my favorite recycling bin to gather coupon inserts. Then we were off to Rancho Market! I didn't get much but what I did get was totally worth the stop!
ALL Shur Saving Milk  $1.99

Bananas 3 lb/.99

And then we hit the Macey's in Spanish Fork. Can I just say what a lovely time we had?? I hadn't been into Macey's in a long time, as I have spent most of my shopping time in Smith's lately. It was nice being there, kind of like coming home...
I was treated so well and greeted by old friends. Plus they have AWESOME deals this week!!! You've got to get in there!!!

Here are some of the best:

Cream of Chicken Soup .49 ea
-.60/6 WF canned soup ( a friendly stockman gave me the coupon)

Leaf lettuce .99

Baby wipes .79 ea

Acetaminophen $4.99

Syrup .$5.98

Chili .69

Chicken or Beef Broth .39 each!!!

Shur Savings Green Beans or Corn .39 each

Breaded Chicken nuggets $1.49/lb  (sold in 10 lb case)
I wasn't sure I'd be able to fit it in my freezer but it was just such a darn great deal so I brought it home and made it fit! The kids are so excited! :)

Valu Time Mac n' Cheese 4/$1.00!!!

So glad I got it done! I might do a bit at Smith's and Walmart tomorrow, or I may just rest. We'll see! :)

A Tuesday Tale!

Hello friends! The youngin's and I ran down to Payson this morning. I didn't feel like doing it but I am of course glad I got it done! First we hit Walmart:

Colgate toothpaste .94 ea
-.50/1 any Colgate (doubled)= +.06 each!

Heinz Ketchup 20oz $1.88
-.50/1 any Heinz (doubled) = .88

Reynolds Slow Cooker Liners 1.97
-.50/1 Reynolds liners (doubled)= .97

The we headed to Smith's, my most favorite store!

I bought the 3 Kellogg's cereals first, using my $1.50/1 coupons that I earned on the Kellogg's website.
The cereals were $2.50 each before coupons.
So I basically paid $3 for them and then I earned a $3 Catalina coupon, which made it like just paying tax for the cereal!! $.23!!!

Then I bought the rest and used the $3 catalina.

Body Fortress Energy Bars .71 ea (clearance)
-$1/1 any Body Fortress product online print= +.29 each!!

Post Sesame Street cereal $1.88

Poise Panty Fresheners $1.09 (clearance)
-$1/1 any Poise product= .09

Don't you just love great deals?? But also, don't you just hate when you mess up???

I thought I had gotten the right Orville Ready to Eat popcorn. An ecoupon even came up but I didn't look at it closely enough. It wasn't the right one. :( I will be taking it back with me on my next trip of course! $2.50 matters to me! :)
