Today I went shopping for just a few things I need for a party this weekend. I decided since I was in town that I would go ahead and pick up a few other things too, free things! I have been saving up some of my coupons for free items to pick up in one trip. Well I didn't use all of them because we didn't have time and WalMart has a 40 coupon limit and I have way more than that! But I did get to experience something fun.
Here is a picture of everything I got for free today.
Not a huge haul, but a fun haul. Let me explain. The easy things are the two 12 packs of soda. They each cost $3.98. The coupon for each gave me $3.98 off. Three cups of Meow Mix Cat Food were $0.48 and $0.48 off each. Two 20 oz. Diet Cokes were $1.58 and $1.58 off each.Three Silk Fruit & Proteins were $3.78 and $3.78 off each. One Silk Pure Almond Milk was $3.18 and $3.18 off. Four Zone Bars were $0.98 and $0.98 off each. So when you add all that up it would have cost me $31.10 with the tax. But with the coupons it cost me the $0.10 in tax alone!!
But it gets better. The Reach Dental Floss was $0.97 and I had a $1 coupon, so with the tax it cost me $0.04!!! And the 20 lb bag of Purina Dog Chow was $11.72 and with tax would have cost me $12.54. BUT I had a coupon from Klout that gave me $15.99 off. WalMart's policy is to give the full value of the coupon so it really cost me negative $3.45.
So grand total for all my freebies is negative $3.31!!! They paid me $3.31 to buy all of it. WhooHoo!!! My husband was with me and he was thrilled. We don't often shop together, but he has decided maybe he will more often if this is what happens all the time. I wish it was what happened all the time. Sadly it is not, but today I am going to enjoy it and and feed my dogs! LOL!!
So what has been some of you fun shopping trips? I would love to hear about them.
