My Walmart Trip: $18.16 For $50.03 Worth Of Groceries
It's been awhile since I posted a shopping trip.........life and holidays have a way of interrupting. =0) But, today was a good day for shopping (yesterday was even better when I scored 2 full bags of produce plus 2 bags of potatoes and a bag of onions for around $13 at a local store's 13 hour sale). Anyways, I sneaked down to Walmart today while the kids were at school and ended up only spending $18.16 for $50.03 worth of groceries.
I took advantage of the after Christmas sale and saved a total of $4.13 on my purchases. I used coupons to save an additional $18.26 and I happened to stumble across a red-tagged cart of clearanced items (marked down 50%) to save $9.40. Last but least I ad matched an item to save $0.08. I know $0.08 right? I had already planned to ad match the item to another store so that I could score if for FREE with a coupon.........I didn't know that Walmart was only selling it for only $0.08 more. =0)
Here is a breakdown of my trip:
Christmas wrapping paper- $2.50 marked down to $0.62- will use it for wrapping birthday presents.
3 Baby Bottle Pops- $1/each marked down to $0.25/each- I like to surprise the kids sometimes on Friday to celebrate the end of the week.
