But I think what I got was worth what I spent.
I was just sooooo aggrivated with myself when I got in my car and realized I should have did my cereal and meat in separate transactions so I could have used the $4.00 OYNO on the meat :-(
The ground beef was $1.27 a pound for the Value Pack. The first time I got 4.22lb, and the second time I got 4.07lb. I used the $1/$5 Meat Flip, which made it around $1.03 a pound.
The other deal I was particularly going for was the $10.00 off 10 Breakfast items.
We had been out of syrup and I had been looking for a sale, until finally I had to break down last week and just buy a small Publix brand bottle to get us through. So was glad to see this sale.
In the first transaction I bought (5) bottles of syrup and (5) boxes of mix and after the Instant Savings and coupons, the total was $8.90. Less than $1.00 each!
Next time I got (6) boxes of cereal and (4) more boxes of pancake mix. Got a $4.00 OYNO back from the cereal, so that after sale/coupon total was only $5.95, or about .60 each!
The Dentastix was 2/$6.00...free after (2) $2.00 MQs and $2/$5.00 Pet Aisle FLip.
The CoffeeMate Creamer Sticks box is $1.29...I used $1.00 Coffee Mate FLip and .50 MQ for .21 overage. After buying the first box I got a Catalina coupon for a BOGO Coffee Mate Sticks, so in the 2nd transaction I got (1) box with .21 overage and (1) box Free. Also got another BOGO Coupon.
Value of items: $90.01
Spent: $26.26 + 1.69 tax = $27.95
Rec'd $4.00 OYNO
Final Total $23.95
