Well, once I got there and started shopping, I threw in quite a few things that I hadn't planned on buying. So I didn't have some awesome total of $10 or anything, but I still think I did great. Here's what I got:

20 cans of Fancy Feast Cat Food-- 10/$5.50
4 cans of Sheba Cat Food-- BOGO for total of $1.98
20 jars of Beechnut Baby Food stage 2-- 10/$4.50
3 jars of Beechnut Baby Food stage 3-- 3/$2.00
2 packages of Beechnut Oatmeal/mixed grain cereal -- 2/$3.18 minus $2.00 coupons
1 container of Enfamil 12.9 oz. --$12.45 minus $7.00 check
10 packages of Lipton Side Dishes-- 10/ $10.00
2 Ore Ida frozen potatoes--2/$4.00 minus $1.00 coupon
2 containers Ben & Jerry's ice cream-- 2/$6.00
2 boxes of Honeycomb-- BOGO at $3.69
2 Yoohoo 12 packs -- BOGO at $5.99 <--- wouldn't normally get it, but DH loves them
2 packages of Kraft cheese-- 2/$4.00 minus $.75 coupon
2 bottle of Draft salad dressing --BOGO at $2.59
1 package of sausage --$2.00
1 package of bakery treats--$2.99


Total before coupons/check-- $88.77
Grand Total after coupons and check(including $10 off purchase of $50)--$65.81

I thought you were getting a big enfamil for your rebate?

I love the $10 coupons--did it print you off another one for next week? That's how they lure us in, you know?!

I changed my mind. I didn't want to use up half of the $50 purchase on just one item. Plus I figured that I do have months before the rebate expires and I'll definitely be buying a big one before then.

Yes, I got another one of those coupons. Woohoo! And I got two fancy feast and two Beechnut coupons. Plus I got a BOGO for Goodstart which really sucks since I don't use it anymore. I'm hoping to trade it with someone on JM for Enfamil but I don't know anyone who lives in the few states that have Winn Dixie. I hate having a good coupon no one can use. They're doing a good job of luring me in, I can tell you that. I like saving lots of money and Walmart just doesn't do sales like grocery stores do.

Nice job! We don't have Winn Dixie here, obviously, but Meijer printed off a $10 off coupon for me this week when I was there. Now, to figure out what to spend it on ...

I miss Meijer's. I always got milk so wicked cheap there. You know what I think is kinda funny? When the Walmart supercenters started popping up all over the country, everyone was so amazed that you could buy groceries in the same place as clothes, furniture, etc. And all of us in MI were thinking, "Yeah, we've been doing that for years; it's called Meijer's!"

LOL!

I too love going there when I'm in Michigan. It's quite a hike from my grandmother's house, but oh so worth it.


(by the way--your coupons are printing as I type...)

Awww Kim, you are such a sweetie! I didn't want to ask because I don't like to impose. Thank you so much! Your 18 Boost coupons should arrive any day now.
