They were $3.79 BOGO - (2) $1.50 MQs = .40/.39 each
I also had .50 Yakisoba mqs from 8/29 SS (or RP?). Yakisoba is currently priced at 5/$3, or .60 each, so with the coupon doubled, I got .40 overage each.
I got (8) Yakisoba, so the .40 overage cancelled out the .40 cost of the ice creams.
At that point I was at free, or really about .04 overage still.
Then I had a $3.00/2 EAS PQ from the Family Style magazine, along with a Up to $3.89 EAS IPq.
This one is always hard to figure because you never know if the cashier is going to enter $3.89 or $1.99, the cost of one of the bars. I figured if she put in $1.99, I'd just give her a 2nd coupon for the other bar and get them both free, and have the $3.00 overage from the PQ to pay towards my other purchases.
I used my EAS overage to buy milk. It was $2.49, so either way the EAS overage came out, I was still about .42-.51 in the negative.
Usually I wouldn't worry about it and let it eat into tax, but today there is a blinkie machine on the milk fridge with coupons for $2.00 for any Lactaid milk. The Quart size Lactaid is only $2.19, so that was .19 for a quart of milk after coupon, so I got a couple paid for by some of the overage I still had.
And then I still had my $5/$25 Rite Aid coupon, with which I bought my kid his frozen burritos ($3.69) and a couple pot pies for me (.58 each).
Total -0.23 + .68 tax = $0.45 oop

Because I have to drive out of town to shop most of the time, I usually plan it where I go to several stores and do several shops while I'm out.
But today I hadn't gotten a plan together, and didn't care to mess with it, but I did want to go to Publix and get the Starbucks ice cream, or raincheck if nothing else.
So I decided to see how far I was driving to make one special trip to Publix to maybe or maybe not get ice cream.
From the parking spot I was sitting in at the store, to my parking spot in my driveway at home, is exactly 20.0 miles.
So, 40 mile round trip. Oh well, I have my mp3 player with my favorite music and it's a nice, relaxing ride.
