My Idea of a Great Friday Night :)

Well, I acquired some more Spray and Wash coupons today so I knew I had to go to Publix to snag em as it's the last day. That sparked a whole 3 store shopping event :) The PSJ Publix had restocked on the large boxes of General Mills Cereals today and I had a rain check!
  • 10 boxes (1 lb size) of Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal, $4.99 - Used Rain check on the B1G1 deal, ten $2 off Publix coupons from the GDGM board, three $1 off 2 GM Cereals coupon from the newspaper (expires tomorrow), and $1 off 3 GM Cereals coupon from the newspaper = 10 for 95¢
  • 2 boxes of Toaster Strudel, $2.99 - Used two Free Toaster Strudel wyb 1 lb Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal peelie coupons from previous boxes = 2 for Free
  • 2 lb bag Frozen Tyson Chicken Tenderloins, $5.49
I also got to use a $5 off $30 Winn Dixie coupon, so my pre-coupon total would have been $37.92, but I only paid $1.44! Woo hoo - that's 96% savings!

I was so excited that the cereal was back in stock, I decided to check the Knox McRae store too so I could make sure I get mine before they are all gone again. They hadn't restocked yet, but they did have the resolve unlike the other store. They were all out of the trigger sprays I got yesterday with the 65¢ off coupons, but I wanted to get the deal so I got the other kind :)
  • 8 Resolve Max Pretreat Spray, $2.99 B1G1 - Used four $2 off 2 Publix coupons from the yellow flyer (expires today) and six 50¢ off coupons from the newspaper = 12¢ each
So, my grand total for this trip was $1.68 with the tax :)

And since I had to pass CVS on the way home, I decided to go in and see about the Pepsi Max deal :)
Transaction 1: 
  • 4 bottles of Pepsi Max, 88¢ each - Used four 55¢ off coupons from the Publix Blinkie Box = 33¢ each
  • Peach Smoothie Scented Nail Polish, $3.99 - Used $1 off Revlon Cosmetics Item coupon from the newspaper = $2.99
I also used $4 worth of ECBs, so I paid 71¢ and got $3 ECBs back!

Transaction 2:
  • Mad About Mango Scented Nail Polish, $3.99 - Used $1 off Revlon Cosmetics Item coupon from the newspaper = $2.99
I used the $3 ECB from transaction 1 and paid 24¢ and got $3 ECBs back!

I checked the sale tag on the Revlon nail polish and I'm glad I did, because it said limit 6 per household. So essentially, this deal is self perpetuating for 6 bottles if you have enough coupons and keep buying the ones that are $3.99. You will have to scan them to see their price, some of the scented ones are $4.99.

At Publix, I snagged a Free Blockbuster Express Rental :) And at CVS, I cashed in my Free Redbox Rental from Tropicana I posted about last week :) So tonight we are watching Source Code and Take Me Home Tonight.
Now that's what I call a good Friday night :)
