Weis Markets & Rite-Aid Redux....Much Less Stressful This Time!

Remember my little trips to Rite-Aid and Weis Markets on Tuesday?

Well I went back on Wednesday to both stores, hoping for some less stressful shopping.

First to Weis where I rolled my Nestle Catalina into dog food.  The Cat Deal on the dog food is spend $35, get $10 Cat Q....

1 x Dog Chow Kibble large bag=$10.99
10 x Alpo cans @3/$2 =$6.67
24 x Mighty Dog cans @ .55¢=$13.20
SubTotal....$30.86  **The reg. shelf price was $35.29**

Coupons Used
1 x $2/1 Purina Dog Chow IPQ from Purina website=$2.00
2 x $2/12 Mighty Dog cans(last Sunday's insert) ManuQ=$4.00
3 x $1/3 Alpo cans Peelie Qs from some of the cans=$3.00
1 x BOGO Alpo cans(last Sunday's insert)=$.79 *
1 x $8 Catalina Q from Nestle deal=$8.00
Coupon Total....$17.79

$30.86-$17.79=$13.07+ $1.86 tax=$14.93 OOP
And I received a $10 Catalina Q.
Without the Cat Q, it's a 67.30% savings.

*I realized after he rang up the Alpo Qs that I should have bought an eleventh can to use that BOGO Q...he had to force that one through.  I didn't figure it out until it was too late to make a scene over it. ;-)  Even though the Alpo cans were on sale for .67¢ each, the Q was coded to automatically take off the reg. shelf price, so that is why .79¢ came off instead.

I had planned to get 36 Mighty Dog and a diff. amount of Alpo cans and use ManuQs from last Sunday's paper, but when I got to the store cans of the Alpo had much better value of Peelie Qs on them so I changed things up to get a lower OOP total.

Then it was onward to Rite-Aid, this time WITH my +Ups.
Ugh.....I'm still sick over that. 8-P

4 x Ragu sauce-raincheck price $1.00=$4.00 *
1 x Dove Men's Deo on sale=$3.99
1 x Gillette Razor on sale=$9.99
1 x Breathe Right w/20% wellness disc.=$4.79
2 x Oral-B toothbrushes on sale $2.99=$5.98
2 x Revlon tweezers on sale 40%off=$3.58
1 x Easter candy=.44¢
1 x cherry candy=.26¢

*Total should have been $33.03, but the cashier rang up the 4th Ragu for $.01 instead of $1.00.  I caught this just now on the receipt.  I was wondering why I needed filler items to spend my $
