I got "the shakes" - Stop and Shop 8/17

Today I got the shakes - what my mom calls a deep down 'need' to go shopping. You know how when some people have money in their pocket they need to spend it? I'm like that with coupons. I just can't wait! So here's what I bought for 81 cents!!!!!

  • 1 - Kraft Singles American Cheese ($3.69) used Free WYB 3 Kraft products coupon = FREE!
  • 2 - Lean Cuisine Cafe Classics ($2.50ea) used two $4/1 coupons from Facebook* = FREE (-$3.00 = overage!)
  • 1 - California Pizza Kitchen Pizza ($7.49) used $6/1 coupon from Facebook* = $1.49, but see below.
  • 2 - Kotex Pantiliners ($1.29) got two more 75c/1 coupons from a trade! Coupons doubled to $1.29 ea= FREE!
  • 2 - Boxes of Bagel Bites ($2.50 ea) used two $3/1 coupons from Facebook*= -$1.00 (overage!)
  • 1lb of green grapes - ($1.08) managers special 99 cents a pound = $1.08
  • 3 packets of koolaid (13 cents ea) for WYB cheese = 39 cents
  • 1 package of Sargento Provolone Cheese ($3.69) used $3.50/1 Facebook coupon* = 19 cents!
  • a couple of potatoes (not pictured) 58 cents

So everytime I use these coupons something different happens. Sometimes the cashier gives me the full amount for the item, sometimes they adjust it down. Well today the total was $5.81 before the $6 pizza coupon and the poor cashier could not figure out how to manually adjust it down. (I offered to throw something else in to get the total over the amount, but she said it wouldn't matter.) Don't ask me what happened, but 30 minutes later my total was 81 cents and I have no idea how. My reciept is totally wrong, so I think she just gave up and charged me what she thought I'd like to hear. And that's fine with me I suppose :)

*Want these awesome facebook coupons? Get the PDFs from IHeartCVS! *update: the pdfs have been removed from the site. :(

Facebook coupons that were pdf'd are definitely not legit...
