My plan today when I went shopping was to divide up my transactions like this, but after my first transaction the checker told me she could print off duplicate receipts for me instead of doing everything in individual transactions.
Now that I am home I wish I would have divided up the transactions anyway just so things were easy to sort through, so I would recommend the different transactions if you are going to use any of the rebates I did. After I paid for my first transaction and my bill came to $22 and I was going to get a $20 rebate back I was feeling pretty awesome! Then all the rest of my items came up to over $380!!!!!! I about died. Then I scanned in my Preferred Savings Card and the total went down to $219!!!! I handed over my coupons and they did their magic! My total cost for that transaction was only $92! My total for EVERYTHING ABOVE only cost me...........

My total cost after my rebate will only be
$77.11 and a FREE pizza coupon
To make this work for me it definitely took some work and planning on my part, but it totally paid off! I teased my husband and told him saving this kind of money at the store is like paying myself to work! I can't believe how much money I saved and how many groceries I came home with! Be sure to send us your pictures from this weeks sale too! We love seeing how awesome you guys do!
BTW I had so much fun running into so many of you readers today! Thank you for always be so sweet to me! Amy totally offered to give me her blue Solo plates so I didn't have to take the red ones and Krisiti ran back to grab me the bread I almost forgot! You guys are the best and you are why I love updating this blog!

Do you wait until the end to enter your preferred values card, so you can see how much you're saving without it?

AWESOME Shopping trip! Way to stretch your buck...and all throse must have had quite a time planning for this trip. I have a question about the $20 Kraft Back to School rebate. Do you know if you submitted for the first rebate period, if you can do this deal again and submit for the second rebate? They are from different time periods, with different dates listed, but still say one per household.

My Nabisco rebate states that the purchases need to be made by 12/31/09 and postmarked by 1/15/10. Are we out of luck or do you think companies will honor it a month or two after the deadline?

There are 2 rebates in the booklet. The first one is unavailable so be sure to use the second one in there. My rebate says our purchase needs to be made from 1/1/10-6/30/10.
