Inital total - $18.96
Savings (manufacturer coupons and store specials) - $9.99
Final total with tax - $9.71
* One of the items I bought was Garnier Nutrisse Conditioner. It is normally priced at $3.99, but was on sale for $2.99. Walgreens had an instant store coupon of $2.00 bringing the price to $0.99 and then I used a $1 coupon. So I got the shampoo for free!
Initial total - $35.84
Savings (coupons, sales and price-matching) - $12.61
Final total with tax - $24.18
* I can only imagine what I could do with a store that doubled coupons. Two of the items I purchased here have a 1/2 price rebate associated with them, so I will receive a check in the mail for $4.06.
HEB - AWFUL when it comes to sales, but does have some things that have a lower price than Walmart
Initial total -$28.02
Savings (coupons only) - $1.35
Final total with tax - $26.95
So my total spending for today was $60.84. Other than milk, I will probably not have to go to the store for two to three weeks unless the ads next week show a really good sale somewhere and I have coupons.
