Shopping Trip and My Buys

This is what I bought today at Safeway. I had not ment to buy so much but I came across some amazing buys. The redish thing to the right of the picture is what I organize my coupons in. So how much would you pay for all of the items here in my picture? Had I not used sales and coupons the cost would of been $72.71. What did I pay in the end? $17.03 and with tax is was $18.28. OK you are now asking me how the heck did I manage to do that? OK I will tell you!

I bought 6 packages of Danimals yogurt and one Danimals Smoothie.

Yogurt was on sale for $2.50, had $2.25 in markdown coupon codes on them making it .25 cents. I then saw .55 cent coupons per package above them bringing my cost down to them paying me .30 cents for eack of 6 packs of the Danimals. 6 times .30 cents is paying me $1.80 in the end.

Now the smoothie was on sale for $2.99 and as you can see has $1.25 off in markings bringing the cost down to $1.74 - the .55 cents coupon making it $1.49. With the $1.80 I was paid to buy the yogurts I was paid .31 cents to buy all the yougurts and smoothie you see here. The Friskies was on sale 2/$7.00. It was a better buy getting 2 of the smaller packages then the larger package. I found a $1.50 coupon that someone had left on the catfood and used it today. I ended up paying 2/$5.50 for Friskies.
The bread is Safeways version of Eating Right and was on sale for .99 cents. I had a coupon for .50 cents off bringing it down to .49 cents. This bread is normally $2.19 and today was a greay buy in it!
The milk is $2.99 a gallon but if you buy 2 gallons it is 2/ $3.99. OK I have no coupons on milk today but milk is a necessity here.
The Cascade was on sale for $4.49 and I had a coupon to get it free! Free is always a great price!
The Crab Classic is normally $3.49. Today it was a BOGO or 2/$3.49. I also had coupons for .55 cents on each package. I was able to use 2 coupons taking $1.10 off. I ended up paying 2/$2.39. I now have a pound of crab for $2.39.

I Can't Believe It's Not Butter was on sale for $1.99 it is normally $3.19 here. I also had a coupon for .50 cents off bringing the cost down to $1.49.
The ham was on sale for $5.99 a pound, it was not a great buy but I needed it for lunchs.
This is on sale for $1.99 and I had a coupon that I got from Safeway in a display that was a freebie! I mean the coupon was for a free Glade Plug in. Just free no need to buy a thing at all other then to get one for free!
Pace Mexican Four Cheese sauce. Normally it is $3.89 today was on sale for $2.50 and I had a coupon for $4.00 off. Making it free to me. I did not collect cash back on this one being as the computer realises it is cheaper then the coupon.
I love buttter. This is Organic butter and unsalted at that. It is normally $4.69, on sale for $2.99 yet there was also 3 tags for .75 cents off on it making it $2.25 off of $2.99 bringing it down to .74 cents for a pound of good butter.
I love the reuseable shopping bags and have a nice little collection of them. I had a coupon for the Safeway remodle grand opening for a free bag. This is normally just .99 cents but hey free is free! I now have 2 bags like this from Safeway and have a 3rd that should be on it's way.
One last peek at what I bought today for under $20.00!
