Friday Finals 12/2

I realized around Tuesday of this week that I forgot to post Friday Finals last week.  Sorry about that!  Here’s our savings for the last two weeks…

It’s tradition  to hit CVS on Black Friday.  This year I took my twin 6 year olds.  They did an awesome job, I think part of their motivation though was that snickers bars were free after extracare bucks.  My store was slammed and cashiers slightly stressed so rather than going for minimum out of pocket I broke it into 3 large transactions and called it a day.   That might not sound like a help, but believe me it was!  Everyone around me was also coupon shopping so no one minded waiting on each other.

Total Before Sales and Coupons:  $31.23
Total Spent: $8.14
Total Saved: $23.09 or 74%

I have $14 in Extracare bucks left from these transactions to spend on another week.  We also got 10 Hot Wheels cars that were on sale for 50¢ so that’s $5 right there!

Total Before Sales and Coupons: $117.60
Total Spent: $59.73
Total Saved:  $57.87 or 49.2%

The included milk, steak, bread and produce!  I also stocked up on clearance light bulbs since for every two you buy you’ll also get a $2 off Catalina coupon off your next purchase.  We broke it into two transactions to use the catalina coupons from the first purchase towards the second.  I still have $6 in catalinas remaining for our next visit.

I would love to hear some of your Black Friday adventures plus this weeks savings.  Leave a comment or a link to your savings post.
