I ran into Kroger to get 50% off bread and in the end came out with all of the items above.  I think there is a coupon available for the Ken's dressing, but I picked these items up without planning.  Shopping without planning cost you dollars and cents. 
2 Natures Own Honey Wheat Bread 50% off  $1.64
2 Ken's Salad Dressing $1.79 (my son's favorite)
2 Colgate Toothpaste $1
2 Colgate Toothbrushes $1

2 $.75 off coupons for Colgate Toothpaste
Total w/tax $16.76 


Wow! I haven't had this much fun shopping at Publix in a while.  I was able to get so many bargains for such a little price.  It would have been a lot easier if I didn't have my teenage daughter in my ear every 2 min wanting to add items to my buggy.  My famous saying to her is "did you bring a coupon for it?"  When the answer is no the answer from me is wait until you can find a coupon.  I was able to pick up some of the things she needed in a previous Aldi's fruit post.  I could have done so much better on the rice.  I could have even got enough to give away, but I left the remaining coupons in Publix (for someone else to use) went to Kroger where they were marked 1.09.  I could have gotten them 9 cents a bag :).

Fresh Fruit at Aldi's

I don't know if you know it, but Aldi's has great prices on fresh fruit.  I can always go to Aldi's to find great fruit at a great price.  I will have to say you have to be selective of the fruit you choose to make sure it is not molding or going bad.  I have had some rare occasions where I have passed on what they had to offer.  Overall, great place to purchase fruit and veggies at a discounted price.

1 Container Black Berries $1.69
1 Bag of Mandarin Oranges $3.29
2 Container of Strawberries $.99
1 Bag of Red Grapes $2.99

Wal-Mart Run

I really don't like going to Wal-Mart unless I really have to.  I went to CVS for cans of Salmon and they didn't have them, so I had to head to Wal-Mart to get some salmon, because I really had a taste for it.  That's not good either to walk in a store with a craving.  I was also going to price match the price that CVS had on Bumble Bee Salmon for 2 for $5, but Wal-Mart doesn't carry that brand so I bought Double Q at $2.98 a can.  I was able to make up the difference with the Neutrogena bars.  I had my sell flyers in the card, but didn't think to look at them I could have saved $.70 if I had price matched the Ruffles and Oat Meal pies.  They were both on sale at Kroger this week.  Just think I went in only for the salmon. 

10 Bars of Neutrogena Face Soap $1.97
2 McCormick Seasoning Packs $1.50
1 Box of Lil Debbies Oat Meal Pies $1.70
1 Bag of Ruffles Chips $2.98
2 Cans of Double Q salmon $2.98
1 Bag of Trident Gum $2.50

5 $5 off 2 Neutrogena Bars
1 $.50 off Trident Gum

Total w/tax $12.20

Great Price on Mitchum @ CVS

Quick run to CVS to pick up the Bumble Bee Salmon that is on sale for 2 for $5, but they didn't have a can in sight. I didn't want to waste my trip so I decided to pick up these two containers of Mitchum deodorants for my husband.  He has taken a liking for this brand.  I couldn't beat the price of $1 because it normally sells for $5.19.  The women brands are also on sale. 

2 Mitchum Deodorants $1.99

2 $1 off Mitchum Coupons

Total w/tax $2.26

Shopping @ CVS

I had a few minutes to waste while my husband got a hair cut and since CVS was right around the corner I thought why not go in to see what I could buy.  I didn't plan this purchase at all so there were some hick-ups that I could have avoided if I had put some planning in place. 

I had 2 Almay Make-Up Cleaning wipes included in the transaction, but the register nor the cashier would approve my $5 off 2 Almay Cosmetics Products. :((  I should have waited on the Wet and Wild products, I was only buying them to satisfy my coupon $4 off $12 Cosmetic Purchase.  The cashier removed my coupon when she took the Almay products off.  In addition a coupon for $1 off is in the 4/7 Sunday's paper for Wet and Wild products oh well my daughter will enjoy them since she picked them out.

Clearance @ Target

If you are in the market for some discounted Easter candy head over to Target where they have marked their Easter candy down 50% off.  It's not as cheap as I like to buy it, so I plan on waiting another couple of days before I buy some.  The Black Dot Dollar Spot is also marked down 70% off.  Take a ride to your nearest Target to snatch up some great deals.  My Target also had a ton of command strips on sale, so if you are in the need for them check your end caps. 

Free Soap @ WalMart

Well I found a great deal on another item to add to my college baskets that I will make next month.  I went out to WalMart to find 12 bars of the Olay soap.  Of course, my son, my daughter and I had to do 3 separate transactions to get all 12 bars, but for the price we paid it was well worth it.  I plan to check another store tomorrow to see how many I can acquire.  I will also try to pick some up at the Dollar Tree. 

12 Bars of Olay Soap $.97

12 $1 off Olay Coupons

Total w/Tax $.45 Soap was free, but you have to pay Uncle Sam.  Taxes Only

Almost Free Fabric Sheets at Target

Well I almost got Bounce fabric sheets for free.  Actually, many of them were free.  They would have all been free if I had the newest coupons available.  I was ready to score a great deal of them last week before the P&G coupons expired, but could never find them in the stores (I checked about 4 stores for a week).  Finally, when I find them I only had 3 $3 manufacture coupons so I had to use the other coupons to make up the difference.  I am still pleased with my purchase.  I also bought Thank You cards for my daughters graduation. 

12 Boxes of Bounce Fabric Sheets (Used to fill college baskets I will make soon) $1.97
3 packs of Thank You Cards $1.13
1 Bag of Bugles $1 (co-worker had these last week, tried them had to have more)

4 $3 off 3 Target Tide Bounce Coupons
3 $3 off 3 Manufacture Tide Bounce Coupons
1 $1.50 off 2 Manufacture Tide Bounce Coupon
