this post is especially for safieh, who really should have followed me to the grocery store on the way home from the quilt guild meeting.
i stopped at the coupon-friendly randall's on shepherd/westheimer to get some more windex multi-surface cleaner for my mom and aunt while it's basically free after coupons and catalinas. i had other items on my list, too. not all of my e-coupons came off, but my Kashi cereal free coupon auto-deducted at $4.49 even though it was on sale for $2 if you bought four or more boxes and my buy-one-get-one-free Classico coupon auto-deducted at the regular price of $2.79 instead of the sale price of $2, so i only came out $1 higher than i had expected. here's the breakdown:
4 boxes Kashi Heart to Heart cereal (3 blueberry cluster, 1 honey oat circles)
1 jar Classico three mushroom pasta sauce
1 jar Classico alfredo sauce
2 boxes safeway pasta
1 Secret deodorant
1 Right Guard Total Defense 5 deodorant
1 Old Spice deodorant
1 Old Spice body wash
4 Windex multi-surface cleaners (2 "green" with vinegar, 2 anti-bacterial)
1 4-lb bag boneless skinless frozen chicken breast
Total money paid after coupons, e-coupons and OYNO catalinas: $1.62
and i got back 2 $2 OYNO catalinas for buying 4 windex.
tomorrow i will go back and buy 4 more windex at $1.99 each when you buy 3 or more, use 4 $1/1 coupons, but 2 cheap filler items (say, an onion and a jalepeno, both of which i need for a recipe i'm going to try), my total will be roughly $5, i'll pay with the 2 $2 OYNO catalinas i got today plus less than $1 cash, then i'll get back 2 more $2 OYNO cats. rinse and repeat three more times to use all my windex coupons. anyone need any windex multi-surface cleaner???
