save-a-dime : I spent $18.00 got home with $125.34 in retail value.

We went to 2 stores this morning and spent 18.00 out of pocket. Now keep in mind I did use rr's and coupons to bring this total down. This is what we came home with. 1 12 oz bottle of John Frieda Conditioner 1 12 oz bottle of John Frieda Root Awaking Shampoo and 1 12 oz bottle of John Frieda full repair shampoo.
 12 4.5 oz bars of Irish Spring bath Soap, 2 9 oz  bags of M & M and 1 Reese's peanut butter egg. out of pocket I paid 6.50. Got back a $5.00 rr and a coupon for $5.00 off my next $25.00 purchase.

Next stop Publix:  8 cans of Campbell's select harvest soup,6 cans of Rotel, 6 boxes of Hamburger helper, 2 jars of  French Mustard and 2 jars of Pace salsa all this for the out of pocket amount $11.50.
The retail before sales and coupons was 125.34 paid 18.00 after store sales and coupons that is a savings of $107.34 I think this is one of my best trips.

Yes, I spent about 2 hours of my time, getting things ready for this shop. 107.34/2 that's  like making
$53.67 an hour. So to me it is worth my time. And I still have most of my grocery budget available to look for other deals this week. I have been shopping this way for quite awhile, so my pantry is full and I am able to look for the best deals. A good resource is check out her list of items that will be 50 percent or more off with your coupons this week. You can learn so much from her site and cut a lot off your grocery bill  if you are willing to put in a little time to save-a-dime.
