WOWZA, woman! You didn't get a glade candle thingy? I did... I got a 5.00 GC for it, and the coupon made it only 5.78 already, so it was next to free. woot.

you did great!! I have enough batteries for the moment, though.

Ashley-I'm guessing here, but these are things I'm pretty sure she had coupons for:

40 packs of batteries (AND! They had more than just AAs this time, also AAAs, Cs, Ds, and 9Vs!!)-Her store has them inthe $1 section and she had $1 coupons
3 3lb Bags of Goodlife Cat Food-I'm pretty sure she had mentioned getting these for nearly free with coupons
2 bags York Peppermint Patties
2 bags Hershey Kisses
MC out there for $1/2
5 Archer Farms snack mix-I think there's a Target coupon for these
2 Febreeze Air Effects-coupons out, but not sure on the amount
1 Nice and Easy Hair Color (with Root Touch Up)-she may have had a $5 coupon from Teri
6 Kraft string cheese-Target coupon
1 Meow Mix cat treats-coupon
2 20 bag Celestial Seasonings Holiday Tea
6 Purina Busy Bones-$1 coupons out
2 Planter's Peanuts
5 Market Pantry Cookie Mix

TOTAL: $106.xx

OOP: $9.48

And she had a 10/100 coupon.

AWESOME JOB MANDI!!! What did the cashier say???

I love my adorable little 10/100. I am sad that it is gone. No, Kim, I didn't get to do the Glade deal because they were out of all of them. They were also out of the Fusion Gift Sets with a gift card with purchase. I was a little peeved, as I had to rework the scenario on the fly, but it went well enough.


I'll try to break it down off the top of my head ...

Rayovac Batteries ... yes, they're in the $1 spot at my Target, so I got each of them for $1, then used a $1/1 any Rayovac to make them free. The cashier thought I was crazy for needing that many batteries.

Goodlife Cat Food was $3.94 and I used $3/1 manu coupons.

York/Hershey's were on sale, plus I had the 50c/1 Target coupons, plus the $1/2 manu coupons.

AF Snack Mix was on price drop to nearly 50% off, minus the 75c/1 Target coupons.

Febreeze was on clearance, plus I had $1/2 coupons.

Nice and Easy Hair Color was on clearance $4.84 minus a $2 Target peelie I found in the hair color aisle and a $2/1 manu coupon I had. I would have gone for more, but there were no signs about the GC deal still being good or not (and I couldn't remember), so I let it be with one.

Kraft string cheese was 27c each minus a Target coupon that adjusted down to make them free.

Meow Mix cat treats were FREE with coupon.

Celestial Seasonings were clearanced already and I had 55c/1 and 45c/1 manu coupons.

Busy Bones had $1/1 coupons.

Planters had a Target coupon ... $1/1, I think.

MP Cookie Mix was on sale as well, plus I had the Target coupon ... 50c/1, I think.



My cashier about had a fit. 70+ coupons in all, and of course the new system doesn't like to scan them so it took a while. Three different people got in line behind me and then left. Haha. My friend Brit was with me, and kept telling people about how 'cool' I was and to watch the total at the end, because it would be amazing and such and such. She's a riot. All in all, everything went well, though.
