Shopping Trip #1: Meijer

I found a $2/1 Tetra Flakes coupon a while back and when we realized we could get these for free, we stocked up! We got 5 containers of the food at $1.67 each and used 5 of the coupons, making our total FREE :).

Without coupons: $8.35
With coupons: FREE

I also found a manufacturer coupon on Lindor Chocolate's Facebook page a week or so ago (no longer available) for free chocolate :). Meijer was having a sale of 2/$6 and we had 3 of the coupons.

Without coupons: $9.00

The next deal we took advantage of was Suave. Meijer had a sale going of buy $12.00 (or more) worth of Suave shampoo/conditioner, automatically get $4.00 off. So we paid $8.00, plus I had a 75 cents off coupon (Sunday paper), making our total $7.25.

Without coupons: $12.43
With sale/coupons:

They also had a sale of 2/$4 going for Herbal Essences going on, which I had a $1.00 off coupon for (Sunday paper).

Without coupons: $4.00
With sale/coupons:

The steal of the day: Ganier shampoo/conditioner on sale for 2/$5.00 + a buy 3 get $3.00 off promotion. I bought 3 for a total of $4.50, plus I had a $1.00/1 Garnier coupon that I used x3... making my total for 3 shampoos/conditioners only $1.50! I paid $1.89 with tax :).

Without coupons: $4.50
With sale/coupons:

Total Savings: $38.28
