What I got for the $$

Thanks all you early-shopper guinea pigs for working all the kinks out of the system for me! My shopping trip last night (Eagle Albie’s) totally rocked! My $60 from the meat promo came off instantly without a hitch–no assistance from the checker required.

Here’s my stats:
Total Saved: $250.58
Total Spent: $71.13 OOP
–submit for Unilever ham rebate, adjusted OOP $51.13!

Here’s what I got (price in parentheses is sale price/my OOP after Albie’s promo and coupons):
2 All Small and Mighty 3x (Sale price: 3.99ea./My OOP: .39ea.)
4 Bertolli Ovenbakes (Sale price: (3.99 ea./1.60ea.)
15 Crystal light on the go (2.50/1.00)
1 Jell-O Cheesecake mix (2.50/1.50)
2 Philly cream cheese (1.00/.60)
3 Stove-top Stuffing mix (1.00/.60)
6 Oreo (yeah, that’s right 6. Don’t judge me) (2.99/.79)
1 Q-tips (3.00/1.50)
7 Skippy (2.00/.80)
1 Hormel Spiral Sliced Ham (1.88/lb., 20.27/free after promo)
6 Wishbone Bountifuls (2.00/.45)
6 Wishbone Spritzers (2.00/.45)
4 milk (1.99ea/paid for 3, got one free with coupon)
1 chocolate milk (4.19/free with coupon)
1 french bread (1.69)
1 pkg. frozen blueberries (4.79)
1 quart buttermilk (1.49)
20 Powerade (.75/.19)
1 bag Romaine hearts (2.79)
1 bag tortillas (2.99–wish I had remembered my $1/1 coupon)
3 4-pk. cadbury chocolate eggs (and yes, I did rip one open right there in the store– you would too) (2.79ea.)
2 chocolate marshmallow bunnies (.99ea.)

A lot of my out of pocket expense came from things I just needed–if I had only bought the things on the promo, and left the rest out, my adjusted OOP would have been 23.11 less, or 28.02. I am blown away! This was a totally complicated deal for me, but well worth it in the end. Now if I can only snag some of the Vaseline Intensive Care lotion (restock already!) my life will be complete!
