Franz Outlet Store. Full Retail...unknown. Paid: $13.00. Saved at least 50%
Bartell Drugs had a couple of good deals...I do NOT like couponing at our Lake Stevens Bartell Drugs ~ the checkers are really big coupon snobs.

Haggen rocked this week. I LOVE these Johnsville Chicken Sausage and I was able to pick up each package for $1.50 using a coupon with a sale. Normally each package cost $4.79...what a great savings! Full Retail: $69.52, Paid: $26.64 ~ 62% Savings

I did two transactions at Walgreens: #1 included the (4) Alka Seltzer Plus and the (6) candies (which I got for free using a coupoon) Full Retail: $32.43, Paid: $9.43 ~ 71% savings BUT I got a $5.00 Register Reward as well which I used on transaction #2. #2 includes the (2) Head and Shoulder shampoo. Full Retail: $12.81, Paid: $3.83 ~ 70% Savings.
Safeway had a couple of good deals. The mustard was buy 1 get one free...and it would have been even a better price if I had remembered to use my darn coupon that I left in my back pocket...ugh! Full Retail: $33.54, Paid: $16.82 ~ 50% Savings
Fred Meyers had a good deal on the dog food I use. Buy 24 ~ get a $3.00 register reward. Taking that into account along with my (2) $2.00/12 coupons...I dropped the per price from 75 cents to 46 cents. Full Retail: $26.97, Paid $22.20 ~ 16% Savings....Plus I received a $3.00 off coupon for my next visit.
Did anyone else get that fantastic Michaels coupon??? It was get $5.00 off a purchase of at least $5.00. To me that means...FREE! I was able to get the icing colors for free plus I bought some butter flavoring to get me over the $5.00 mark. Full Retail: $6.98, Paid: $1.98 ~ 78% Savings.
Thanks for letting me ramble. I am not going to do anymore big shopping trips this month but I will be keeping my eyes open for some freebies.
