Total Before Savings: $99.29

First, I went to a "trendier" Shaw's than my usual and I just wasn't happy. It was more crowded (but we are bracing for a snow storm here) and the register didn't double my coupons, and the cashier gave me attitude! If it wasn't for my 2 year old screaming, I would have gone to the service desk to get my whopping $1.30 back in the should have been doubled coupons. I think I'll bring my receipt back later on this week.

2lbs Baby Carrots - $2.99

Becky,
Can you use two 0.55/1 coupons for the BOGO Arnold Deal? I'm new to this so maybe I don't understand, but I thought if there was a BOGO you could still use one coupon per item... am I misunderstanding? Thanks!

Yes you can use 2 coupons on BOGO deals! I wish I had 2 of the .55 ones for the Arnold Bread! That would be $2.20 off 2 loaves at $3.29 = $1.09 for 2 loaves!

I used 2 $1/1 MFCs for Revlon nail polish today at CVS - Revlon is BOGO Free all week.

I think technically, you are buying 2 items - you are just buying one at $0.00 so that is why you can use 2 coupons? You can also use $/2 coupons for BOGO sales. Hope this helps!

Thanks for the reply, Becky, it does help. I'm so new to this, there is still a lot to learn!

I guessI was confused because there was a .50/1 IP coupon that had 4 to a page... I was confused why you would only use one. But I guess you had a clipped one for .55/1, my mistake!

Anyway, thanks for all of your tips and information. You are such an inspiration to me and your blog is my new favorite resource. Happy Holidays!

I just realized you answer my original question in your sidebar... which is how I knew to ask in the first place! Duh!

Also, you changed your blog roll, my favorite part was how it showed who had updated their posts... is there still a way to see that without having to visit all of them?

I think my blog roll is the same. I didn't make any changes...sometimes Blogger acts funny and won't show the recent posts. I'll blame Blogger! ;)
