Walmart- only 2 reasons to go...

Okay to start I'm sure many of you know that I am anti-Walmart...I dislike the store greatly. I spent many years going there to "save money" only to walk out with a bill of $180. oh that was on good trips. I just cringe at the bills of $250. Well I grazed Walmart with my presence tonight with all 4 kids for the first time in at least 2 months. I decided to use my 6 Farmland Q since they will exp. end of Oct. and our Oct. is beyond BUSY!!!

Let me say that I dislike them first because they do NOTHING for the couponer. Yes they have no real sales, they do not put out a flyer with great sale items in it, they do not double or triple coupons, they don't have any kind of store coupons, they don't have any kind of catalina machines, and they have no store promotions. I mean come on you could do something...

So I already start the experience with a bad taste!

Then what is it about Walmart that makes my kids go crazy...I mean I was just in Kroger and they were golden. Then We step into Walmart and somehow they transform into different kids I'm talkin' BAD. I'm beginning to think that Walmart plays messages in their music... Like "Kids be bad, kids be bad, now lay down in the isle, kids be bad, now it's time to hit and yell at your brother, Yea kids be bad, Now take off and run as fast as you can down the isle, yea kids be bad, now run the cart into the shelves, kids be bad, now stand on the cart and put your hands up, kids be BAD".... Now my kids didn't do all these tonight (thank goodness) but at some point or another THEY HAVE!! I do also know that this is not a Walmart problem it's our problem but it doesn't help that it only ever happens in Walmart. Am I the only one???

Anyway sorry for the RANT...My totals actually were really good. I used a whole handful of Free item coupons that I have gotten from contacting companies...btw, that really works.

Total was $6.xx

The Farmland ham packages are normally $2.98 each...I got 6 of them with $2.MQ and paid .98 cents each. And I paid a few cents for the gum but, Everything else was free!! This is the only thing Walmart is good for in my opinion... To redeem really high dollar coupons and to redeem free item coupons (even this isn't necessary - you can do it anywhere)!!

Well keep in mind that this is only my 2cents!!

Well my list for Kroger wasn't real long this week but there a few deals to get!

eggs .97cents--not bad

lunchmeat land o frost 8oz was 10/10--I didn't see this in the ad.

Activia Yogurt 2/$4. - .50MQ = .50/4pack...however they had a bunch on managers special for .99cents so with my MQ it was free!!!--always look in this section towards the end of the month...I always get tons on freebies on managers specials with MQ!!

Easy mac .79cents - $1./2= .58/2--this will come in handy on our upcoming trip

Kroger brand choose (mix) cereal, poptarts, granola bars--6/$10 get $4. off at register so 6/$6. --poptarts were the 12 count and most cereal was 14-17oz. not a bad deal

Milk in Angola store was 1.25/half gallon...includes chocolate...My kids love this treat!

Go here for a few more deals I didn't see...

Daily Dose

Well I failed yesterday to post my Daily Dose...okay I also failed to read my daily dose. But I'm back today. Hopefully I won't miss another day for awhile.

Matthew chapter 7

Verse 1-2

"Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others , you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you."

Verse 7

"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened."

Meijer--free salad!

I just read that you can use this coupon in Meijers Healthy Living magazine to get 2 bags of salad free or almost free.

The coupon is for any Dole salad blend $1./1 --- 3 varieties of salad are on sale this week b1g1. so if you use 2 coupons that should make 2 bags of salad free or very cheap.

Does anyone know the regular price of a bag of salad??
