Saturday Shaw's Success! With One Exception...

Per my usual strategy, I managed to get a perfect mix of amazing deals, household staples and party recipe ingredients in this trip!  One challenge was that the Gotta Love Great Deals (GLGD) items weren't in this week's ad.  They really haven't changed over the last few weeks so I do know which ones are the best deals for my needs.  They are listed on the Shaw's website and my store had them posted at the front, just in case you need the list!

GLGD Items

Since I purchased 5 participating GLGD items, I was able to use the four Web Exclusive Savings Coupons on Shaw's major store brands.  

I wish I could use more of the $1.50/1 Essential Everyday product coupons because there are so many things I need.  Today I got several items, all for my Buffalo Chicken Dip recipe...yes, it's amazing, and all my friend wanted for her birthday!

Total Retail Value $84.65
Total after sales and coupons $24.93, with bottle deposits my total was over $25 (I don't count this in my cost since I will get the money back when I recycle my bottles) so I was able to use a $4 off $25 Email Savings Program Coupon bringing my total down to $20.93.  I will also get a $1.00 refund in my SavingStar account, so my final OOP will be $19.93, that's a savings of $64.72 or 76%!!!!!!

This trip was so much fun, and many of the items I got two of because I wasn't patient enough to take the time for my second computer to print all of the coupons.  Well, I think it's worth it to make that happen today!  I'm thinking more BeechNut, Kikkoman, Ice Cream Cones, Sweet Potato Fries and Web Exclusive Savings items are in my future.  How will I do that now that I have no more Chex Mix and Fruit Snacks coupons you ask???  I'm thinking Pepsi products all the way!  Think about it...spend $5.00 on soda, and get $8.50 in free products!  Plus, Windham was all out of the Milford Valley Stuffed $.49 a box, I'm not surprised, so I have to go back for that!
