"Fill The Food Pantry" Shaw's CAT - Day 3

Today is rainy and gross.  What a perfect day to do some CAT shopping!  Hit up 2 Shaw's and went in 2 times each.  I messed up once (2nd trip), but overall, a successful day. 

Trip 1 - Started with a $10 CAT

Total Before Savings:  $30.63
Total Preferred Savings:  $13.12
Total Coupons Used:  $15.20
Cash OOP:  $2.31
OYNP Earned:  $14.00

Non Cat Item
Shopper's Value Sugar - $1.50

CAT
3 Nature's Valley Bars - PSP $3.50, Sale $2 (3 .40/1 MFCs DOUBLE) $1.20 ea
2 Pillsbury Crescent Rolls - PSP $2.99, Sale $1.67 (.40/2 MFC DOUBLES) $1.27 ea
4 Pillsbury Sweet Rolls - PSP $2.99, Sale $1.67 (2 .50/2 MFCs DOUBLE) $1.17 ea

Trip 2 - Started with $10 in CATS

CAT
5 GG Steamers - PSP $2.00, Sale $1.67 (a bunch of coupons)

4 GG Boxes - PSP $2.00, Sale $1.67 (2 .50/2 MFCs DOUBLE) $1.17 ea.

-  I meant to grab 13 veggies (PSP would have been $26).  Messed up by only grabbing 10 (what was I thinking?) and the Roasted Red Potato and Green Bean variety wasn't even part of it anyways.  Oh well.  Minus the eggs, I got 10 boxes/bags of vegetables for $2.11.  I think I can live with 21 cents for each of them!
