I didn't have any extra bucks to use this time, that's why the savings isn't so spectacular.

Today at Walmart, I spent $81.76. I had $5.30 in coupons and a $25 gift card I earned from Besides my normal groceries, I also bought some Easter candy and toys that were 50% off and mouthwash and lotion. All of that was about $18.00.

I was also going to buy Safeway Select premium ice cream on sale for $2.50, but I thought it was the 1.5qt. size, only to find out it was a tiny size, maybe 1 pint. So, luckily, Lucerne 1.5 qt. ice cream was on sale for $2.50, so I bought that instead.
