My Trip for this week

This is a picture of my trip yesterday- the milk is missing b/c I had already stuck it in the freezer- yes you can freeze milk!:)

I headed out to Dillons yesterday to do some "deals". Since we are going out of town for the weekend I will not complete my shopping trip until Monday probably. Here is what I have gotten so far!

Deal 1
2 Always Maxi Pads at 5.49/1=10.98
1 Crest Pro-Health toothpaste=3.44
= 14.42
-5.49 -BIGI Always coupon from P&G insert (the sizes were all the same price)
-2.50/1 Always coupon
-3/1 Crest Pro-health coupon I received in a mailer
-3 off for buying 3
-1.50/7.00 Dillons beauty purchase coupon (came in Dillons mailer)
= overage of 1.07!

Deal 2
3 Pantene items=$10
- 3 2/1 coupons
-3 off for buying 3 items
-1/5.00 Dillons beauty purchase (came in Dillons mailer)

The rest of my trip:
  • 4 Oil of Olay body washes on close out for 1.99 (I happened to have 4 $2/1 coupons to make these all FREE!)
  • 2 Infusium shampoo/conditioner products on close out for 3.24 (I had 2 $3/1 coupons make these .24/1!)
  • 3 1/2 gallons of Dillons milk (rp=1.77)on MS for .50/1=1.50!
  • 3 Heartland Springs whole wheat pasta at 1.50/1=4.50 - I had 3 .55/1 coupons doubled to $1 making these .50/1 or 1.50 for all 3
  • 3 boxes of Rice a Roni=$3- 3 .50/1 coupons doubled to $1 made these FREE!
  • 4 Keebler items= 12.00- $6 off for buying 4- 2 1/2 coupons= $4 for all 4 items!
  • 1 bag of granny smith apples (rp=4.99) on MS for .99
  • 1 bottle of country bob's sauce=2.89 -free coupon=FREE
  • 1 11oz can of Kroger ground coffee=2.39-free coupon=FREE
  • 1 bag of goldfish crackers=1.99
Total including tax for all of this= 13.97 (4.50 of this was just for tax alone!). My receipts says that between store coupons and mf coupons I saved 87%! I know I saved even more by buying things on MS, but it is too early in the morning to figure that out!

Also the toothpaste deal may not be a bag gig if you just buy regular Crest. They are 2/5 this week. Here is how it would play out:
3 crests=7.50
-$3 off you get for buying 3
- 3 .75/1 coupons doubled to $1 (from the P&G brand saver)
=1.50 for 3 tubes of toothpaste!

I am not sure if it is this way at all Dillons, but the Dillons on 29th and Urish has a deal on crest toothpaste.

Buy three specially marked Crest toothpastes and get three dollars off. The Whitening Expressions Crest are all marked down to $1.43 on close out. And you can use three 75¢ off Qs in addition to the sale. So it looks like this:

3 Whitening Expressions Crests at $1.43=$4.29

minus the $3 P&G deal when you buy three= $1.29

minus the 3 75¢ off crest Qs (plus Dillons doubles up to a dollar, so this coupon is really worth $1 off)=-1.71

So, in the end Dillons pays you $1.71 to buy three crest toothpastes! This deal is good through Tuesday, July 22.
