Couponing 7.3.11

Sorry for the blurry picture, my camera wasn't handy, so it's a phone pic.

Alrighty folks,  what did I get?
15 boxes Nature Valley Granola Bars, paid a few dollars total for all of these
2 packages Strawberry Twizzlers, .88cents each
2 packages Oscar Meyer Natural Hotdogs, $2 each
5 12 packs Coca Cola soda, $1.85 each
2 lunchables, $1 each on sale
2 Dove Men's bodywashes $1.29 each
2 Dove Men's deoderant, .99cents each
3 cans Bush's Baked Beans, $1.69 each on sale
1 gallon Darigold milk, free (Catalina)
2 boxes Honey Maid Graham Crackers, .99cents each
2 packages Jet Puff Marshmallows, .99 cents each
2 packages Hershey's chocolate bars, .99cents each
1 Lawry's marinade, .74 cents
6 Pillsbury brownie mixes, 3 for free and the rest for .49 cents each (part of the buy 10 save $5 deal)

2 Cheese Nips, .75 cents each
4 boxes various Nabisco Crackers, .75 cents each
1 Heinz Ketchup $1.49 on sale
4 Kraft Ranch, .99cents each

Total- $49 :) Should've been $179 ( I put over 200 on FB, I was off a tad on my math!) Not bad considering there were NO doubled coupons this week!
This time I had a printed word doc of each transaction and what I needed to get for it. I also had the coupons sorted into separate envelopes for the transactions. I spent about 1 1/2 hours prepping this week. Eliana was home with Craig, Evie was with me shopping.

Here's a little bit of what I did. Thank you Coupon Connection!!!

PS. NO free milk catalinas are printing anymore :( Also, the buy 10 save $5 deal will not automatically double to $10 if you buy 20 items. You need to do it as 2 transactions. I didn't know this and my cashier didn't tell me! Dang it, should've saved another $5. It's really irking me looking over this and seeing a couple places I could've saved more, but nothing I can do about it now. This is only my 3rd weekend of really couponing and I think I'm doing pretty good. Live and Learn!

I went back to Albertson's yesterday and asked about the missing $5 savings (on the urging of Coupon Connection). I was told that they have a new system and moving forward I'll have to do a separate transaction for each 10 items that are part of the "buy 10 save $5 deal", but that I am entitled to the 2nd $5. They refunded me! That makes my total for the above transaction $44 and a 76% savings, pretty darn good for having NO doubled coupons! :)
