4 stores & only 25 cents out of pocket!

I headed into CVS because I had a 5.00 EB that expired 5/31, so I wanted to use it as soon as possible. My local stores will accept expired extra bucks, but I didn't want to push my luck and wait to use it.

I was on the lookout for clearanced Huggies diapers after reading tales about shoppers finding them for 4.47 for a jumbo pack. No such luck for me, but I still had a good run...

2.99 Ban deodorant
-1.00/1 MQ 4/18 SS
1.99 paid OOP, earned 2.00 EB

.99 Power Bar (3)
Paid 2.97 OOP, earned 2.97 EB

4.40 subtotal + .86 tax = 5.26 total
Paid with 5.00 EB + .26 on CVS gift card
Earned 4.97 in EBs
SUMMARY: .29 cost

.33 Sun-Rype fruit strips (10)

.35 for all 10 or 3 cents each

2.99 Ready Pac fresh fruit (2) BOGO sale
Received 3.00/2 Ready Pac Catalina Q -thanks for the heads up Sheryl!

4.67 subtotal
Paid with (2) $2 OYNOs and .67 on Safeway gift card

I did one more transaction of 2 Ready Pac fruit cups using the 3.00/2 CRT Q from my first order. I guess the fruit medley cup is 3.49, not 2.99 like the others, so I ended up paying .49 for the last two. No big deal - I love having pre-cut, fresh fruit in my fridge. I didn't look at the shelf tags to see when this deal ends, but I'm assuming it ends tonight. I'll keep an eye out and let you know if this is continuing.

SUMMARY: 5.16 cost

Thanks for the heads up CG Couponista!

1.88 Fry's milk (4)

16.50 subtotal + 1.62 tax -.15 reusable bag credit = 17.97 total
Paid with Fry's gift cards

This was a super high cost transaction for me, but when you're out of diapers and milk, the household stops! Thank goodness for the Huggies deal at Fry's. This is when I am grateful to have my overage loaded on gift cards so I can spend them on necessities on my own clock.

I wanted to grab some .50 Van Camps Pork & Beans, but they were all out. I got a raincheck for that and the Nestle Drumstick deal KC outlined here. I ended up only grabbing one bottle of Kraft BBQ sauce for 50 cents minus a 25 cent Monopoly game piece store coupon. So I paid 25 cents total. I don't need any more BBQ sauce, but this will count towards my Kraft rebate. And I'm glad to see that silly Monopoly game produce SOME kind of savings.

After all of those stops, you would think I'd have more groceries to show for it! My final cost for today was 23.67, but my OOP was only 25 cents. Thank goodness for my stash of gift cards and OYNOs!
