I ended up getting from Walmart:
a 2GB SD card for $7
A fleece hoodie for $8
a few $2 movies.
Colgate Advance Toothpaste 3.49
(I did it again with a $1 coupon to make another dollar)
Gillette Shave Gel .99 (with in-add coupon)
Hot wheels cars .49 in-add coupon
Dasani Water 3.99
At Best Buy:
Many seasons of our favorite shows were 14.99
Photo Storage boxes 3/$5
some Clearance stuff for .50 each
Used 25% off everything coupon
And...my favorite purchase of the day at Big 5 Sports
Black Nike pants that I can wear for workouts, for dress at work, for lounging, for shopping... $45
I was really bummed because they fit PERFECTLY and I have been looking for a pair of these for 3 months now.
I was walking around upset because I would have to put them back, and the manager said "would you like to try those on?" I said sadly "I did already, but I don't think they are on sale" He took them to the register scanned the tag. "45.", he said... "I'll give them to you for 30" I was SOOO excited. I just CREATED my own sale:) I've only tried this technique once at an auto parts store to get an air filter for cheaper (which also worked)...but I might have to start ASKING for sales more often.
AND...I will be going back to this store more often because they were really nice.

(I didn't know if the Tension Headache is included on the coupon, but it says "express gels" and it worked fine.)

Here is what I got at Walgreens for $10 (after $2 RR). I used my gift card, so $0 OP
I did 2 transactions at King Soopers, One of them was these. After coupons and store deals the total was 2.90. I recieved a catalina for $2 off my next purchase, and I got a "try me free" offer from Pamolive, so I should get 2.50 back from that. Profit= $1.40
those were my favorites!

I did 2 transactions and did very well.
All this stuff cost me 13.53. Over 30 items. I got the toilet paper, shavers, oatmeal, scrubber pads, drinks, and toothpaste for free. I could have gotten more things for free, but they were out of some stuff.
This one cost me 16.37
There are 5 boxes of mashed potatoes (I am eating some right now because of my toothache), 3 muffin mixes, 4 cookie mixes,1 box of hamburger helper, 4 boxes of cereal (the Cinnamon Toast Crunch cost me .13 each, and I gave them to my brother because I have plenty), 2 toaster strudels, soap, popcorn, hot chocolate, Ziploc bags, Evaporated milk, Sweetened and condensed milk, and 3 3-pks of candle refills:) The only thing regular price was the box of Pumpkin spice jello. Doesn't' it sound good?
This is the part I'm most proud of. Savings of 86% and 83%. Each transaction had a total coupon savings of over $70. So yes, I did buy a lot of stuff...most of which I will use...but I saved $140 and only spent $30 for 62 items. Oh happy day!
If you want to know HOW to do it, I mainly used THIS blog post from Stretching a Buck.
And to be fair...it took me about 3 hours to plan my shopping trip and match up coupons.
Oh and here is another plug for e-coupons. You type in your king soopers card, and select coupons to put on it. Then if you buy the item, the coupons automatically deducts in the computer at the register. Sign up for P&G e-saver and shortcuts.com.
Next I went to target and hit the 90% off Halloween clearance.
The t-shirt was .50, the stickers were .12, all 4 boxes of candles were .31 after 2 coupons and a $5 gift card for buying 4 glade holiday scents (read about it HERE), a goody hair clip for .48 after using THIS coupon. and a free container of Clorox wipes for being a teacher and signing up earlier. I also got 40 pirate eye-patches for .37, and some flashlights for care packages we are sending to the orphanage our church sponsors in Peru.
Last but not least, I went to Walgreens for my free 8x10.
I found some scissors on clearance (it will end up being .13-.15 for each scissors), some notebooks and clearance makeup (combined with coupons).

I used this today on Venus disposable razors 3-pk. They were on sale for 5.99, I had loaded a 3.00 e-saver coupon earlier, and I used a 2.00MC at the store. So= 3 disposable razors for .99
But...when I was ready to pay, I noticed the 3.00 didn't automatically come off. After about 5 min. of investigation...we realized she never actually rang up the item. Well, I guess I paid .99 to be honest:)
I also got TP for 5.00 after a doubled coupon.
I picked up some raspberries for 1.00, and some of John's favorite buffalo wyngs, for 1.50 after another doubled coupon.
At Safeway, the cookie mixes were 1.00 each. I used (2) .75/1 coupon and (2) .40/1 coupons.
4 cookie mixes for 1.70
