So I went to Publix to use the 5/40 CRT from WD that Kim sent me. I didn't figure out exactly what I going to buy first. I bought a few things at WM first so I just had a vague list to go by at Publix. I checked out and the total was $50 which seemed a bit high but I didn't pay much attention. Until I looked at the receipt in the car and realized that not only did the $5 not come off, it had been added on! And I was like, "Oh, hell no!!" And made DH drive back so I could get it fixed. That wasn't a problem and I walked out with my $10 and a smile. But how weird is that?

That is weird... as soon as I read the 5/40, I thought you were going to say they wouldn't take it. yikes. Glad they got you the money back, though!!

I'm feeling liberated after my very restricted spending month of December. I've been throwing caution to the wind lately. I ended up with:

cat food--$10 (which doesn't come out of grocery money)
6 cans of Progresso-- $7.50 (sale)
Publix small shells pasta--$.89
Mount Olive pickle chips--$2.19
Pimento cheese--$2.19 (DH just had to have it)
2 Nutrigrain bars-$3.39 (BOGO)
2 Kraft mayo--$3.39 (BOGO)
package of pickling cucumbers --$2.28
string cheese--$3.00 (sale)
Goldfish crackers--$1.99
2 packages grape tomatoes--$4.00 (sale)
piece of Publix cake--$1.99 (my downfall)

I only used the 5/40 and then $1.90 in manuf. coupons for an actual grocery money total of $30.65 and savings of $22.49
