My Vons and Ralphs Shopping Trips

Sorry I haven't posted for awhile, but we've been busy with dance recital and then a quick trip to see my in-laws. I'm hoping to start adding some more variety to what I post, so hopefully I will find time to do that soon. Anyway, here's my trips.


Yesterday at Vons, I spent $13.32 and saved $25.51, which is 66%. Here's what I bought:
10 Gatorade $.49 each = $4.90
2 Lucerne Novelty ice cream bars $.99 each = $1.98
6 Barilla pasta $.89 each - $1 coupon = $4.34


At Ralphs, I spent $19.06 and saved $15.95, which is 46%. Here's what I bought:
1 Minute Maid Orange Juice $2.00
2 Deluxe ice cream $5.00 - $.40 coupon = $4.60
4 General Mills Cereal $14.46 - 2 $.75 coupons(doubled) = $12.46
2 Ralphs Gallon Milk free(would have been $5.98)

The Ralphs ad was confusing, even according to the manager. It looked like the GM cereal was 4 for $10, and then you get the 2 free gallons of milk. So, I looked carefully at all the tags and made sure the cereal we bought was part of the deal. Well, apparently it should have been 2 separate promotions - you can either get the cereal 4 for $10 or 2 free milk, not both. Oh well!
