Then I bought:

5 dog food - Free coupons
24 baby food 6.72 - 4.50 in coupons = 2.22
6 baby juice 1.49 X 6 = 8.94 - $9 in coupons (75 cents off one, doubled to 1.50) = -.06
1 light bulbs filler 3.49

= 11.65
-$10.00 catalina

$1.65 out of pocket, get back $10.00

Not pictured are some transactions from yesterday. While I was at Shaw's I noticed that they had Joint Juice on clearance for $1.25. I had coupons for $1/1 so I rushed home to get them. For those of you who have seen my coupon book, can you even believe that I have more coupons that I don't carry?!?!) I only had 11 coupons, but there are 4 in a case. We took home 44 bottles. There is also a deposit on all the bottles making them just 5 cents per 4 pack. That's just a slightly more than a penny a piece!

These are the bags headed to the food pantry in the morning. There are more that 50 cans in those bags, along with 10 jars of mayonnaise and 5 cans of dog food. Yea free food!

I love how you use your powers for good. Next time a grocery store manager gives you a hard time, show them that photo of food that goes to the food bank. Rock on!
