I had so much fun last time I made you guys guess for a giveaway that I want to do it again.  This time so no one can complain I lined up everything so you can see and make an educated guess.

Your mission:  To figure out how much everything below should have cost before coupons and sales.

The Prize:  The 4 guesses that are closest to the actual retail value will get a $50 gift card to the grocery store of their choice.

Put your guess in the form below and I will announce the winner tonight when I post the Friday Finals.

    • Tambry Green

      Is that boneless skinless chicken breasts? 1 lb packages?

      • Emily

        that's what it looks like, probably 1 to 1.4 lb packages.

      • I thought the chicken looked a little bigger than a pound… closer to 2 pounds.

        • Jenni

          I figured for 3 lbs each. They do look like larger packages.

    • Meredith Johnson

      Could someone tell me what is to the right of the toothbrushes? Thanks!:)

      • maedae93

        Looks like Bumblebee tuna pouches.

      • emily

        tuna pouches.

      • Brooke82

        They looked like the Betty Crocker pouch potatoes to me.

    • Megan

      before or after tax?

      • jessc5

        before tax, since every state has different tax.

      • Em

        Before, since retail value indicates before taxes.

    • carolinesurfs

      I hope you'll tell us how much you paid AFTER coupons and sales!

    • Ashley

      My guess is $158.29

    • pharmSCgirl

      That is a lot of stuff! I would like to know what store this is from. I'm guessing Kroger. I can't wait to see what you actually paid for all of this!

    • brodybugsmomma

      When I look at the photo, it's hard to think about retail prices when I know Jenny did not pay more than a $1 for the box of Lucky Charms. LOL! I think she probably only paid $37.56 OOP.

    • Gerardo villalpando


    • Lily


    • Rett

      Whew! That was some guessing on my part! LOL! Best of luck to everyone who participates!! Thanks, Southern Savers, for the fun.

      I'm going to guess $189 (rounded number) before taxes.

    • susan g

      my guess is 207.77

    • Amy

      My uneducated guess is 194.87! :)

    • I would guess $171.50 – even though i don't believe I've ever priced that big a box of Pop Tarts!

    • Yay! These are so much fun Jenny, I can't wait for you to stump us with what you actually paid!

    • Tracie


    • sarah

      do we only get 1 guess?

    • a_shrader

      My guess is $199.06 before taxes……..($22.05 Out of Pocket)<–just wanted to put that so when you post it I won't have to look where I wrote it down lol.

    • kristin


    • Brittany

      with 16 vitamin waters, 3-5 pounds of chicken, 7 large bottles of juice, a ham, and 4 jumbo packs of diapers? close to $250.

    • Jennifer

      My guess is $197.83.

    • Brandie


    • Cecilia H.

      My guess – $168.42

    • Rachel

      This was a lot of fun! Made me feel like I was playing 'The Price is Right' !! hehe

      • Brooke82

        That is what I was thinking too! lol

    • Teresa

      my guess is 241.35….

    • Holly

      I'll say……hmmm…..207.59

    • Michelle

      So many guesses right in the same ballpark!! I think mine was somewhere around 186 and change…..

    • aliciapo7

    • 160.88 ?

    • staceysingleton

      MY GUESS IS $169.34

    • Donna


    • daisy


    • Linds

      I'm guessing $207.41

    • FLTrish

      Fun! I am definitely making an uneducated guess but I think around $222.

    • My guess was lower than most…I've shopped at Wal-mart so lomg before couponing that it's hard to get used to the higher retail prices.

    • Miranda

      I'm going to guess about $181.86.

    • LaDora

      Just a note to everyone, I think you are supposed to enter your guess in the form above, not in the actual comments box. Just want everyone's guess to get counted…:)

    • Rebecca


    • Jenni

      I'm kind of shocked, because I am about to post the highest guess yet, but I went by amounts based as closely as I think to be retail prices for most of these items. $276.91 total retail value before any sales or coupons. And I think you paid about 76% off retail (or about $66.46) after sales and coupons, and even less than that in the end, because I've a feeling you are going to send away for the new Proctor and Gamble rebate coupon book off of this purchase alone. Can't wait to see if I am close or way off!

    • LGmom24


    • LMRunner18
