Saturday Shopping--"Do you think we bought enough cereal?!" edition.

I have been so busy with work and school activities with my daughter that I haven't had much time for blogging or shopping for deals. Today, my hubby and I went shopping for the first time in a few weeks. I wanted to get the free items from Walmart and the great cereal deals at CVS and Kroger.

Our first stop was CVS. I got the three boxes for a net cost of $0.67/box after coupons and ECBs. The Dawn was on sale for $0.99 and I had a $0.50 coupon. Net cost $0.49.

Our second stop was Wal-mart so I could get the free items and a few cleaning supplies. The toothpaste, Kotex, toothbrushes, and lint rollers were all FREE!. Total out of pocket was about $17.
We then stopped at Kroger to get more Kellogg's cereal. These were on sale for $1.88 ea and I had $1/1 coupons for all. Kroger was also having a three day sale and I got the sugar for $0.99 ea. I spent a total of $21.74 and save 64%.

This picture is of our Kroger trip tonight. I got coupons in the mail today from Kroger. There were coupons for free Private Selection ice cream and Nature Valley granola bars. I also printed some more Kellogg's coupons and got more cereal for $0.88/box. I also had a printable B1G1 Sierra Mist coupon. It was nice to buy some chicken since we haven't had any for at least a month. Chicken breasts were $1.99/lb. I had missed getting them on the last couple of sales, and I won't buy them unless they are $1.99/lb or less. I spent a total of $35.46 and saved 55% on the bill.

So, our total for the day of shopping was approximately $74.oo. We ended up with 22 boxes of cereal. We won't have to buy any of that for a long while! Getting cereal for less than a dollar a box can't be beat.

Wow! That's a lot of cereal. I have about 10 boxes of cereal and it will take me forever to eat it all.

Let's hope there's a great milk sale soon.
