I haven't been grocery shopping for a long time because, frankly, I think the deals have been lackluster lately. The Fry's Mega Deal (for example) was not very "mega" in my opinion. I think I have been spoiled in the past by multiple freebies and I have become snooty in my opinion of a good deals. I took my sister in law Gwynne shopping yesterday so she could see the coupons in action. We found some good deals...

NOTE - I had to throw some candy in at the register because the cashier went off subtotal instead of total with tax and the milk came off instantly so that didn't contribute towards the $30 total either.

Paid with Wags $3 RR, got back 1.91 change!
What? First of all, I didn't think the cashier would take my RR because it wasn't a competitor listed in the Fry's ad. But it was expiring today and I didn't feel like going to Wags. Then, I thought I would definitely have to bring my subtotal up to $3, but she gave me cash back. Wow. I need to remember tha cashier's name!
