Shopping Brag

Just had to share my good deal made even better!

Found some cocoa chex mix 12 oz. marked down 75%. I price checked the price at one of the self check registers and it rang up at $.74 and I had a number of the $.50 off 1 chocolate chex mix coupons from 12/11 SS. I also had one $1 off 2 chocolate chex mix coupons that another area received in their 12/11 SS and someone had sent me. So I bought 5 bags, as I had 1 of the $1 off 2, and 3 of the $.50 off… I let the $1 off 2 coupon double, and the $.50 coupons rang up without doubling, as I had my five… So….

$.74 x 5 = $3.70
– $1 off 2 doubled = -$2
– 3 $.50 off 1 coupons = $1.50
Total: $.20 for all five bags

Now, can you guess or remember what I had forgotten? At Walgreens last week, there was a chex deal and coupon network had been promising catalinas if you bought so many bags. I had read that that still existed, but forgotten about… so then at the register I received a $3 off my next order catalina!

They paid me $2.80 to buy some chex mix. Yes, it isn’t my favorite chex mix, but my family will enjoy it, and I can take a bag with me to a church bible study on Monday next week. 🙂
