My Shaw’s Shopping Trip – All for $6.22 – Woohoo!

I use affiliate links in some of my posts. I may earn a commission if you use my links. Full disclosure.

I ran over to Shaw’s tonight and I struck gold! Someone left catalina coupons for FREE Essential Everyday items in the coupon box!  I was able to pick up lots of freebies with those, including all the bread you see and the eggs!  Actually, all the Essential Everyday stuff in the pic was FREE! The two small cans of tomato sauce were free with the candy bar overage.

Speaking of the candy bars… I screwed up!  I was thinking my coupons were for any Mars brand bars but they were for Milky Way.  And I almost grabbed Milky Way because those are my mother’s favorites. But she has so many of them (remember I got 106 candy bars for almost nothing awhile back?) so I grabbed the Snickers instead. An honest mistake!  I’m going to blame it on the fact that I was exhausted! I would have been totally happy with Milky Way.

I’m not going to do the entire break down, but I did 4 transactions. I did one then I was actually driving away but went back because I forgot to check reduced produce. Then I spotted the B2G1 FREE sale on the candy bars and had to go through twice so all my coupons would double.

Here’s what I got:

12 Snickers (ooops!)
12 boxes Scotties (on sale for $1 and I had (6) $1/2 coupons)
1 non stick spray (free)
1 box baking soda (free)
1 oatmeal (free)
1 dozen eggs (free)
2 cans tomato sauce (free due to candy bar overage)
2 Smart Balance butter (on sale for $2 and I had (2) $1.75/1 coupons)
2 loaves Italian bread (free)
1 loaf other bread (free)
2 green peppers (reduced)
2 yellow squash (reduced)
3 Backyard Farm tomatoes (reduced at $1.18, just over a pound and I had a coupon for $1 off 1 pound Backyard Farm tomatoes, paid $.18!)

In addition to those coupons, I had a $2/$25 that I used.

Total came to $6.22 for everything you see!

And what gets me mad is that I forgot my last few $1 OFF Essential Everyday coupons from that coupon book.  I would have gotten 4 more freebies!
