Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears My word, and believes Him who sent Me, has eternal life, and does not come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life. John 5:24

Shopping Wrap Up

At Rite Aid, I bought No Nonsense tights, Profoot heel rescue creme, Prevacid, Malox and 16 Covergirl products.  When all is said and done and my rebate checks arrive, I will have $27.40 more than when I walked into Rite Aid ($10 of the $27.40 is Rite Aid store money.  The rest will be checks that I can cash.)  Plus, I earned enough points in a Covergirl promotion to order 3 t-shirts, 2 journals and 3 key chains.  You may review my transactions here. (total retail value of all merchandise $128,96)

On Sunday I shopped at Bloom's superdouble coupon event on Sunday and brought home 6 Tropicana, 10 Bush's black eyed peas, 2 Milo's Kitchen dog treats, 10 YoCrunch Greek yogurt, 20 YoCrunch yogurt for $13.13. (64.32 retail)

I made a quick stop at Supertarget and walked out with 16 packages of Extra dessert gum free.  Kuddos to my favorite cashier who just laughed when she realized I wanted to make 8 identical transactions in order to honor the stated limit on the Target coupons.  (retail value of gum $15.84)

I went back to Bloom today and bought 2 blocks of Kraft cheese, 2 packages of shredded Kraft cheese and a dozen eggs for $7.48.  ($11.12 retail)

We can earn gas points at Giant.  My cost reflects savings on gasoline.  I spent $15.37 at Giant ~ and walked out with 2 frozen lima beans, 6 Campbells tomato soup, 2 Johnsonville ground Italian sausage, 8 Classico pasta sauce, 5 Hormel Compleats kids' meals, Premium saltine crackers, 5 Progresso Italian wedding soup (regular prices total $68.90)

I also spent $ 7.79 at Giant and brought home 5 Johnsonville Italian sausage, 6 Bush's baked beans and 10 Pillsbury cake mixes.  ($49.75 retail)

I went back to Giant to take advantage of their "Fill Your Freezer" promotion.  First I bought 5 Edy's ice cream for $15 ($3 each), and received back a coupon for $10 off your next order.  I "spent" my $10 off coupon on my next purchase, got another coupon back, and then did the same thing again.  I paid $17 and brought home ~ 5 Edy's ice cream, 19 assorted Hanover frozen vegetables (asparagus, squash, green beans, lima beans, broccoli) $76.76 before savings

Finally, and probably the most fun of all, Thursday afternoon I ordered a Fiskars lopper, an outdoor thermoreter, mouse traps and a pumpkin carving kit from True Value.  After rebates and a store coupon for $5 off a $25 purchase, everything should be free, (sale prices total $25.99)
