My biggest shopping trip 2 weeks ago!

I had this posted on my facebook page and am now posting it here:

OK – Hang on this is going to be a whopper!
I had 8 hours of shopping with no kids so I made the most of it!

First stop – Meijer!
I went there on Thursday but someone had already cleaned them out of the Powerade Zeros and Glade plug ins. So I talked to the ordering associate and he talked to the Coke guy and they ordered me 10 cases of the powerade – 15 in each case!

So today I went to pick them up and also found 3 glade plug ins.
I did them all in 6 per transaction – they were so patient and amazing!
First transaction:
6 PA x .88 = $5.28 minus 5 x $.88 coupons (they were $1 off but computer doesn’t give overage – bummer!)
4 purex conc. detergent - $1.99 ea –four $.50 coupon ea = $1.49 ea (reg. @$5)
9 kraft mac n cheese = .33 ea
total - $10.04
received $4

second:
6 PA = $5.28
1 glade plug in - $1.79
minus $2 x $.88 coupons
minus $4 RR
total = $1.88
received: $4 RR and $2RR from glade PI

3rd and 4th:
6 PA = $5.28
minus 1 $.88 coupon
minus $2 RR
minus $4 RR
total: $.76

5th & 6th & 7th :
6 PA = $5.28
minus $.88 coupon
minus $4 RR
total = $.82

8th – 25th: (ran out of regular PA coupons)
6 PA = $5.28
minus $4 RR
total - $1.70

so after coupons and RR – each bottle was not quite .21 cents each
I also bought 18 more boxes of Mac n cheese for .33 each
And 8 more Purex for $1.49 after coupon
ANNNNDDD – 3 bottles of Suave shampoo and 3 bottles of conditioner
6 x $1.25 minus six $2 coupons off each bottle
PROFIT $4.50 that I used towards mac n chees & detergent

Now on to Jewel Grocery Store:

total OOP = $34.77 (but will get $10 back in MIR)

Now on to WAGS: - I had a truly great cashier and Manager – they helped me understand some of the RR and broke up my orders into MANY transactions – I goofed on some, so I didn’t MAKE as much as I could have but still did pretty good!

6 Crest Pro Health mouthwash $4.49 (did separately)
Minus .75 coupon

My husband loves beef jerky & they had on sale
2/$7 and I got 8 minus $5/$20 WAGS coupon
and minus eight $1 coupons

6 reach ultra clean tooth brushes – 2/$5 (I did these in groups of 2 per Trans)

(I did this 3 times and 2 of the times I did not buy the milk – until manager reminded cashier and she even didn’t make me on the second time but I did on the third)
so 4 pks of cookies = 50 each and 2 pks for $2.50 ea plus free milk
