Last week's $68.74 shopping trip

I went $8.74 over budget this week, but I only spent $45 last week, so I had some extra money to budget in this week. I actually made 4 stops this week which I usually don't do, but I wanted to check out a few things at Walmart.

This is my $38.02 Publix trip. It actually rang up $60.12 before coupons! Counting coupons and sales prices I saved $57.86. Some of the best deals I want to note are:
Tidy Cat litter- BOGO $6.99 (3.50 - $1.00 coupon)= $2.50
Cole's Garlic Bread- BOGO $2.79 ($1.40 - $1.00c)=$.40
Starbuck's Ice Cream- BOGO $3.59 ($1.80 - $1.00c)=$.80
Mrs. Pauls frozen fish- $3.99 - $3.00c =$.99
Yoplait Yogurt- BOGO $2.50 ($1.25-$1.00c)=$.25
Cookie Crisp Cereal -BOGO $4.99 ($2.50-$1.00c)=$1.50
Cheez-Its- BOGO -$3.29 ($1.65- $.75c)= $.90
Lysol Kitchen cleaner- BOGO $2.69 ($1.35- $.80c)=$.55
Cascadian Farms organic Granola Bars- 2/$5.00 - $1.00c= $1.50
Bananas $.39/pound special store markdown b/c they were ripe, so I bought some to make banana bread.
Pepperidge Farms Cinnamon Raisin bread- BOGO $3.59 ($1.80-$.55c)=$1.25
Starkist Frest Pouch- 4/$5= $1.25- $1.00c= $.25
Juicy Juice- BOGO $3.65 ($1.82-$.50c)=$1.32

This is my $17.21 Walmart shopping trip.
White Cloud TP- $2.00 - $1.00 coupon= $1.00

Glade candles $2.97- FREE coupon= FREE X 5
Crest double pack toothpaste on Clearance for $3.00-$.50 coupon= $2.50
Disney toothpaste- $2.34- $.50 coupon= $1.84
bananas -$.53/lb
grapes- $1.27/lb
cantaloupe- $1.25
strawberries- $1.88
Kraft shredded cheese- $1.98-$1.00 coupon= $.98

Ingles $8.06 trip. Took hubby with me, and he grabbed the Mayfield($2.33) and Coke
($1.25) and I splurged on the fudge $1.59. The apples were $1.98 and the Buitone pasta was
BOGO $3.28 ($1.64 - $1.00 coupon)= $.64. They only had one pasta left so I had to get a raincheck and they wouldn't let me use the $2.00 Method handwash coupon which would have given me 6 handwashes for free. The coupon was a manu coupon but b/c it had Publix on it they wouldn't take it. So it wasn't the greatest trip. Here is my $5.45 CVS trip. Not another great trip at CVS, but next Saturday you can check out
this week's trip, which was a bit better.
