~Walmart Trip~

I needed a new cheap litter pan and figured this would be a great opportunity to use some of my coupons that would give me overage. Unfortunately my big overage items were out of stock but I did get to use some of my coupons expiring tomorrow , and I found invitations to Lily's birthday party Smile 


(4) Febreeze Warmers $2.97 Each

   Used (4) $3.00 Febreeze noticeable warmer (expire today)

(2) Cascade $.97 each

    Used $1.00 Cascade (Expire today)

(1) KY $2.84

    Used $3.00 Any KY (printable no longer available)

(1) Dora invitations $2.84

(1) Litter pan  $3.87

Total $7.05

I really only needed the invitations and litter pan and was trying to use the overage to pay for them, but since they were out of stock of the other items I wanted, the overage really was so small I basically just got all the other stuff free.

Also received a $4 on your next order for buying so much Gerber.   This is a special promotion, there were no signs at my store . I know for sure when you buy 5 you get $2 and 10 you get $4.  If you take that into consideration all the Gerber items only cost me $3.58 Smile 

This week I was able to stock up on a lot of items we use. Cheese is always a budget buster for me, I never seem to find a good deal on it when I need to so when I see cheese especially singles on this cheap I have to get a few.  My daughter loves those Gerber snacks even though she hasn’t had any in a few months, I figured for that price I would treat her. Vegetables go really fast in my house, I wish I could have gotten more then just corn but they did not have any others we eat so I saved a few of my coupons. The dog bone is for my sister’s dogs Smile

*Our Krogers doubles coupons up to a $1 in final value, there is no limit to how many you can double.*

I made probably two more trips with coupons in hand. I picked up One Nyquil Liquid,one Nyquil Capsules, two Dayquil Capsules. There was coupons in the paper last week for Vicks Products, so after coupons I spent $ 4.75 for all that . That’s cheaper then buying one regular price!
