I decided to take my coupon book and peruse Acme’s aisles, matching up coupons and prices for free or nearly free products. Today was kind of a miss for me but oh well. I walked out with a total MUCH cheaper than the average person and had a great conversation with another crazy couponer like myself.
Cottonelle wipes -3.19 – used a FREE coupon I got in the mail except it was good up to 2.89. Occasionally a cashier gives it to you but this one did not. I signed up for the coupon the other month Should have waited an gotten the product elsewhere FREE.
Carefree panti-liners – 1.29 – not like I needed them but free….HA!! Bad day!!! I read the 18-22 count part but not UP TO $1!!!!!! Again, probably could have gotten it free somewhere.
Carolina yellow saffron rice, 5 oz. – .89 – use .50/1 coupon – FREE. I didn’t get it. I *think* it may be cheaper to get 1 or 2 # white rice for 1.39, which isn’t free but better.
French’s spicy brown mustard – 1.59 – .75/1 = .09
Suave Professionals – 2.79 – FREE coupon UP TO 2.89. WOOHOO!!!!! FINALLY!!! I played a game they had the other month and got the coupon in the mail.
I paid 1.27 for what I did get so I really can’t complain but if I was on my A game and didn’t go when I was too tired to think straight I would have done better. MUCH better.
Oh, and I paid with the $2 I won in their summer sizzling give-away.
