So I took my son's couponing with me this morning. My 6 yr old Gavin thinks I'm ridiculous.... I'm assuming Dylan (6 months old) feels the same although he can't say it lol.

We went to 6 stores ... that's a lot of in and out of the car with a baby! Man I feel like i worked out!

And here's what we got! I have pics this time lol. I'm bad at staying with my list tho I need to get better at that!

Yes it took 2 pictures!! Okay so here's what we got!

Store 1, Rite Aid:
John Frieda Awakening Shampoo $4.99
I used $2/1 Coupon
Paid: 2.99 + Tax
Earned: $1 in Up Rewards

Store 2, Target:
Huggies Diapers 36 ct $8.99
I used $3/1 mf Coupon and $2/1 Target Coupon
(3.99 for diapers?!?!? Crazy!)

Ortega Taco Seasoning 4 @ $0.69 each
I used 2 $1/2 Coupons

2 8oz Bricks of Market Pantry Cheese $1.75 Each
I used $1/2 Target Coupon

They had some awesome clearance deals on kids clothes that I couldn't pass up!

Plaid Shorts $2.48

For Gavin:
Baseball T-shirt $2.98
Plaid Button Up Shirt $1.98

Store 3, CVS:
Okay I know do I really need more soda? Well I'm addicted to caffeine and I don't like coffee and its' a good price for name brand lol
15 Bottles of Pepsi Products $1 each
Candy Corn $0.99
Used $1/1 Coupon
I also had a coupon for $3/$15
Total: 11.70+ Tax and Bottle Deposit
(I thought I was getting $5 in ECB's but there was a limit of one I'm okay with that tho since I got that $3/$15 coupon from the magic red machine!)

Store 4, Wallgreens:
2 Oreo Fudge Creams $0.89 each
I used 2 $1/1 Coupons
(Now the girl did give me a bit of trouble about this but I asked her to just adjust it down and she did... but she did have to give me grief about it... this is why I like CVS and Rite Aid better I've had no issues there)
Fun Shape Bands (aka more bribery to be good) $1.99
(Not pictured because he already has them on his wrist lol)
Total: 1.99 + Tax

Store 5, Rite Aid:
(I had to go to a different one because the 1st didn't have Vicks Sinex)
3 Boxes of Vicks Sinex $4.99 Each
(I wanted 4 BUT NY State law only allowed me to buy 3 because otherwise I'm making cocaine not stocking up ... ridiculous!)
I used 3 $4/1 Coupons
And I used my $1 Up Rewards from when I bought my shampoo
Total: $1.97
Earned: $4.50 in Up Rewards
The cashier commented on what a great coupon that was!

Store 6, Price Chopper:
4 Select Harvest Soups BOGO $2.19
I used $1/2 PC Print Out Coupon
and $1/3 MF coupon
($0.59 each! Not too bad)
3 Chicken Helpers $1 each
I used $1.50/3 PC Print Out Coupon
and $.75/3 MF Coupon which was doubled up to $1
($.17 each)

I also got a HUGE boneless pork loin that was on sale for $1.99/lb and had the butcher chop it up in to 2 Roast and some chops. $18.89
(Not Pictured)
Sweet Baby Rays (sadly no coupon and not on sale but i needed it) $3.39
Total: 25.16 (no tax)

So my grand total for everything 64.22 ... Not too bad If you ask me!

Now my goal for the day was $35 ... BUT... I hadn't planed on the pork which was almost $20 and a good deal to fill up my freezer and I spent like $12 on clothes for the boys which also wasn't in the plan but too good to pass up ... So really if we don't count those I DID only spend like $32 lol.
