Wowza. I leave for a little while, and I come back and have to actually read a bunch of stuff to get caught up! I like that!

Now, on to the bragging, if you please... (because why would I mention shopping if I weren't out for a good brag, right? muahahahaha)

I got:

5 smoothies (I ended up getting them for free because they rang up wrong! WOOT!!!)
2 boxes of quaker granola bites (I had two coupons for them, on sale BOGO--making two boxes cost only .79)
2 boxes of quaker chewy granola, reduced sugar bars (I had one coupon for them, on sale BOGO, making two boxes cost 1.79)
four boxes of Kellogg's yogo rollers (on sale BOGO and I had three coupons, making four boxes cost only 2.18)
one box of publix spaghetti
one package of flat out rolls for my husband's lunches next week
2 things of Ken's dressing (I had a coupon, and BOGO, making two cost only 1.59)
two large jars of prego (on sale BOGO... unfortunately, my coupon was expired! )
one jar of claussen pickles (on sale, coupon)
two boxes of ghirardelli brownies (BOGO)
2 publix 2 liters of soda for the kids (rare, but on sale for .50 each)

My total before coupons was: 25.24 (really more, but the smoothies were free due to the pricing error, so they aren't in the actual total)
I paid: 14.69! WOOT!

Total savings were: 30.75 (plus the other 4.00 in free smoothies!)

I know it was some junkie stuff, but hey--we're going on vacation and we'll need munchies while we're there. The granola stuff is mine, all MINE!!!! And I got to hang on to my smoothie coupons to use later!

Not far! Orlando. With my parents. Same as last Memorial day get away. They rented a 5 BR 3 BA house with a heated pool for a week. My mom and dad get a room, the baby and I get a room, my nieces get a room, my kids get a room, and whoever else gets a room...
