Had a pretty decent shopping trip today! Got lots of good stuff at great prices =) It all went pretty smoothly except Walmart didn’t have the first 3 items on my list so we wound up having to stop by Rexall and Metro too. Good thing they are all very close together. The only thing we didn’t get that we wanted was the Majesta Toilet Paper that is on sale at Giant Tiger. Walmart only had the 16 roll packages – not the 8 double rolls and Giant Tiger was just too far to drive as we were expecting company. I’m still hopeful that Giant Tiger will have some left when I head out there later this week.

As I mentioned, Walmart didn’t have any of the paper products on my list so it was a pretty disappointing start. But after that things picked up. This is everything we got at Walmart:

2 x Pedigree Jumbone $3.98 – BOGO = $1.98ea
4 x Peek Freans Cookies $1.99 (PM Metro) – BOGO = $0.98ea
1 x Catelli Smart Pasta $1.00 (PM No Frills) – $1.00 = FREE
1 x Catelli Smart Pasta $1.00 (PM No Frills) – $0.75 = $0.25
2 x Weight Watchers Smart Ones $2.49 (PM Farmboys – a local grocer) –  BOGO = $1.25ea
2 x Weight Watchers Smart Ones $2.49 (PM Farmboys) – I had another BOGO coupon but the cashier didn’t apply it = $4.98
4 x French’s Mustard / Frank’s Combo $2.49 (PM Sobeys) – $0.50 = $1.99ea
3 x Mr Clean Liquid Cleaner $2.00 (PM No Frills) – $4.00 WUB3 = $0.67ea
1 x Cafe Inspirations $1.99 (PM SDM) – $1.00 = $0.99
1 x Scrubbing Bubbles One Step Toilet Bowl Cleaner Kit $7.99 (PM Independent) – $5.00 = $2.99
3 x Scrubbing Bubbles One Step Toilet Bowl Cleaner Kit $7.99 (PM Independent) – $5.00 – $3.00 = +0.03 (I’ll explain below)
2 x Scrubbing Bubbles One Step Toilet Bowl Cleaner Refill $4.99 – BO Kit GO Free = FREE

So this was a special bonus with the Scrubbing Bubbles Kits.. three of the boxes had peelies for $3.00 off attached to them. I was talking to the cashier and mentioned what a good deal they were especially with the extra $3.00 off coupons. When I said this she immediately took the peelie off the box, read it and applied it to the 3 boxes. I didn’t even get to see the coupon! Has anyone else come across this at Walmart?

Total Retail Cost: $153.18
OOP: $37.47 ~  76% Savings
Taxes: $8.78

After Walmart we headed over to Metro. I don’t usually shop at Metro as they tend to have higher prices and stricter coupon policies but the Cashmere Toilet Paper was such a good deal! So we headed a few minutes up the road to Metro. The whole process took me about 3 minutes. I jumped out of the truck and hurried into the store, wondering how long it was going to take me to find it. I was pleasantly surprised when I walked in the store and it was one of the first things I saw. I grabbed my 2 packages and walked about 10 feet to the cashier. Easy as pie

2 x Cashmere Toilet Paper 8 double rolls $2.99 – $2.00 = $0.99ea

Total Retail Cost: $15.98
OOP: $1.98 ~ 88% Savings
Taxes: $0.26

Since we were already at Metro and Rexall is in the same plaza we head over there to pick up the White Swan Paper Towel. Walmart doesn’t carry any White Swan Paper Towel so I wasn’t entirely shocked to not find it there. This one took a little longer than Metro because the Paper Towel was in the far back corner of the store then I had to walk back to the cashier but still, couldn’t have been more than 5 minutes :) I had different coupons for these, 2 from and 1 was a peelie I had found a long time ago.

1 x White Swan Paper Towel 2 roll $0.79 – $0.75 = $0.04
2 x White Swan Paper Towel 2 roll $0.79 – $0.50 = $0.25ea

Total Retail Cost: $5.34
OOP: $0.62 ~ 89% Savings
Taxes: $0.31

All in all a pretty great shopping trip. The day’s totals rang up like this:

Total Retail Cost: $175.21
OOP: $40.07 ~ 78% Savings
Taxes: $9.35
