My $20 Walmart Challenge

It’s been years since I couponed in Walmart.  They aren’t a great store for getting grocery deals in general since they don’t have sales, however with so many mobile app coupons out that can be used WITH paper coupons, there are some great deals to grab.

It was kinda like a treasure hunt.  At one point I even had to pull out the Walmart app to search for what aisle something would be on (good luck finding matches without the app).  I grabbed mostly freebies since the goal was to see how far I could stretch my money.  My budget was $20 but I ended up coming in under that after we get the mobile app money and mail in rebate offer back.

Note:  There are many more deals on the Walmart list I could have added, I just ran out of time to gather coupons.  I would imagine you could get upwards of 50 items for $20 right now!

Here’s everything I got for $15.88 after rebates:
