Last Night Totally Rocked!

I got my FREE ice cream last night! Woohoo.

Hubs and I dropped the kiddos off at grandma's house for about an hour and a half last night, while we made a Meijer and a Wags run.

Stopped at Wags first because I had ordered 10 - 1.00/1 Chinet product from Dede and Wags has the 10 count packages dinner plates on sale for 1.50 right now. I had a $5 RR to use by the 6, so I was hoping to get all 10 and use my coupons and RR and get them for free, but they only had two in stock. No matter - got my rain check and found some other things to fill up the rest of the 5.00. I was pretty please because I had been needing some new eyeliner and lo and behold, the only Cover Girl eyeliner they had on clearance was "espresso" which - ka-ching! is my color! Whoop.

2 Chinet plates - 1.50, used 2 - 1.00/1 Insert coupons
4 Lindsay black olives - 2.99 - used .99 IVC coupon from sales flier, used 1.00/2 printable

1 Cover Girl espresso eyeliner - clearanced to 3.49

Used 1 $5 RR -
Paid 1.84 OOP, saved 19.32.

I was excited.

I knew heaven was smiling down on my trip last night when I saw one of my favorite Meijer cashiers on a lane. I determined that I would go to her lane, even if I had to wait and I was going to go for broke on my transactions! I love her because she never hassles me about my coupons. And last night I had 57.00 worth of coupons.

I saw that they still had the FREE ice cream signs up underneath all the Ritz cracker display. They said "Buy ANY 2 Nabisco crackers, get a FREE 1/2 gallon of Meijer ice cream" and they are everywhere by all the crackers. I had done some investigating on the matter and the sales ad says "Buy 2 Chips Ahoy and get a FREE 1/2 gallon of Meijer ice cream" but you really have to decipher it because it's also where it shows the sale price of Nabisco crackers - so I'm guessing that's where they got confused. But Hubs was very awesome and apparently was hungry for ice cream, because he goes "Well, let's ask someone who knows what they're talking about." So - I went to the Crystal Light display and he found someone, explained and that person said - "If the price of ice cream doesn't come off, explain it to the cashier and if they give you problems, have them call grocery." All right! So we added 2 1/2 gallons of ice cream in our cart.

Also - I read a tip from HCW on how there were some Glade Fabric and Air Sprays that had FREE peelie coupons on them, so I went to see if any of them did and whaddya know? There were 3 of them amongst the 8 on the shelf. So, in the cart they went too. Ha!
