Quick? Walmart Stop

What started off as a quick stop ended up taking much longer than usual (doesn't it always take longer than usual at Walmart?) Anyway, what started off as a tiny list - 3 items - turned into 19 items! Not to worry....I had enough coupons to get 19 items for $6.31. Oh wait....I was overcharged! That's right, check your receipts before you leave the store because ALMOST ALWAYS I find that I was overcharged for something! After visiting customer service for a price adjustment (on three out of 19 items) my total was brought down to just $4.85!!

Here is what we got:

2 -Mission tortilla chips - 1.15 ea.
4 - Fresh strawberries...yummmm!!!! - 1.18 ea.
4- Knox gelatin - free plus $2.72 overage on each one!
1- Turkey lunch meat - 3.57 ea.
1 - Bologna lunch meat - 1.98 ea.
3 - Glucerna cereal - free plus 1.06 overage on each one (plus I will get $3 in rebates for these)
1- Bakery rolls - 1.50 on sale
2- whole wheat sandwhich bread - 1.47 each
1- All You! magazine (has TONS of coupons in it!) - 1.74 ea.

Total before coupons = $38.19
Total after coupons and rebate = $1.85
Total saved = $36.34


  1. Thought I left a comment earlier but now it's not here....

    I'm so glad you have a blog! And I'm hoping it'll inspire me to actually do this whole couponing thing. I am totally impressed. Overwhelmed and not completely convinced it is something I could actually do, but I LOVE these amazing deals that you are getting!

    What I really want to know is this...will you please come to TN and do this FOR me every week??? :)

  2. Jen, I won't lie - this takes some serious time to get started, but now that I'm in the "groove" of couponing, it seems to be much easier and takes much less time. I of course have one rule and that is to NOT take my kids with me shopping anymore (okay, I usually take one, but that is easy!). When they are all along, it is much too complicated and stressful!

  4. You should've picked up about 10 more bags of chips. Those 2 aren't going to put much of a dent in all that salsa you've got sitting around!!:)
