Last Shopping Trip $13.45 for 47 items

Okay, last week was another great example of paying for your groceries with coupon overages.  "Overage" is the money you get back when the coupon value exceeds the item price.  We live in a very small town, so I am really limited to where I shop and price match.  Other than a Walmart Supercenter, we have two small chain grocery stores that aren't usually much for price matching (Walmart in our area is almost always the lowest already) with that being said, I have to get very creative on how we do our shopping.  My best weapon of savings is by using overages.  Here is my shopping list from last week and how I did it:

1 bag of Frego lite string cheese- $3.48 use $0.50/1 = $2.98

1 jar of Tostitos salsa con queso dip- $2.98 use $1/1 = $1.98

1 bag of Tostitos restaurant style chips-$2.98 use $1/1= $1.98

2 Liters of Pepsi Max sodas- Free use the "Buy Tostitos/get Pepsi Max Free = FREE

1 loaf of Great Value whole wheat bread- $.98

1 lemon- $0.38

2 Glade plug ins- $2.97 ($5.94) use $0.50/1 (x2) = $4.94 (for both)

2 cans of Great Value chick peas= $0.66= $1.32

2 avocados- $0.50 each = $1.00

3 2 Liter bottles of Walmart brand lemonade sodas- $0.68 each= $2.04

4 Speed Stick deodorants-$.98 each ($3.92) use $0.50/1 = 1.92 (for all four)

15 cans of Friskies cat food-$0.50 each (x15)=$6.50 use $1/15=$5.50

10 Similac Baby "Spit up" formulas-$3.84 each (x10)=$30.84 use $5/1= $11.16 Overage

1 package of Rayovac batteries-$0.97 use $1/1 = $0.03 Overage

1 KY jelly-$2.62 use $3/1= $0.38 Overage

Grand Total: $25.02- 11.57 in overages =$13.45 (not including $1.57 tax)

again, we have donated the baby formulas as we do not have a baby, but use these overages to pay for our groceries.  Did you have a great shopping week?  Please post your fabulous deals here.  Happy shopping!
