Meijer Trip March 23rd

I know .... I said that it was going to be a milk and produce shopping week only. I seriously just now remembered saying that though.  I got milk ... but no produce. And I added some things to my stockpile.  What can I say?  I have a weakness for good deals.  The Ziploc Bags and Capri Sun/Nabisco snacks were great deals.  I bought 7 boxes of cereal to get 3 custom coupons (catalinas) for Free Milk.  It ended up being an okay price per box of cereal but I see now that it wasn't my best stock-up price.

Here's what I bought....  This is a list of everything all together.  I did multiple transactions though to roll catalina's from one transaction to the next.  Email me or leave a comment if a transaction by transaction break down would be helpful.

4 Boxes of Frosted Mini Wheats ~~~ $2.99 ea
Used 2 $1/2 Kellogg's Cereals 3/7 Red Plum Insert
3 Boxes of Raisin Bran Crunch ~~~ $2.99 ea
Used 1 $1/2 Kellogg's Cereals 3/7 Red Plum Insert
Received Free Milk catalinas for buying 7 boxes of Kellogg's cereals
2 Gallons of Milk ~~~ $2.00 ea
Used 2 of the 3 Free Milk catalinas I received for buying the cereal
4 boxes of Capri Sun ~~~ $1.59 ea
2 Nabisco Snacks 12 pk ~~~ $4.00 ea
Received 2 $3.00 catalinas (in separate transactions) for buying 2 Capri Suns and 1 Nabisco Snacks 12 pks.
8 Boxes of Quart sized Ziploc Vacuum Bags ~~~ $1.89 ea
Used 8 $.40/1 on Any Ziploc Bags 3/21 Smart Source Insert
4 Boxes of Gallon sized Ziploc Vacuum Bags ~~~ $1.89 ea
Used 4 $.40/1 on Any Ziploc Bags 3/21 Smart Source Insert
Received 4 $2.00 catalinas.

**I bought 3 Ziploc's per transaction so I could roll the $2.00 catalina from each transaction into the next.

I spent $34.11 and saved $42.62 all together.  $28.50 of my savings was from coupons/catalinas.  That's a savings of 56%!  Plus I have 1 $2.00 and 1 Free Milk coupon to use next time!
