Freebie Frenzy!!!

Tonight's Shaw's trip was full of freebies and overage...I love it!!!  I also love the little cutie in this picture.  This is Lucas, my four and a half year old son.  He is almost alway with me on my shopping trips, and love to help mommy take the picture of our food to show everyone.  He is the joy of my life, and at a time like this, I just had to show you one of the little guys who are the reason why I work so hard to save money on groceries.  

Before we get into the deals I did get, I have to say I am so bummed we didn't get the WOW deals...again!  I had big plans for cheap Oreos and pasta sauce plus a free pie, but not so much here in Maine!  With that said, I did still get some great deals!

6 Pepsi X 2-Liter Bottles
Regularly $1.79
On sale for $1.00
There were coupons for $.75/1 hanging from the bottles and a sign saying "free with coupon, no limit" so they were even allowing more than the usual limit of four coupons to double.  Why???  They expire in two weeks, but hubby doesn't care, so neither do I!
Four of the coupons doubled to a full $1.50, so I got six for free plus $2.00 overage!
