Shopping Trip at Albertsons

Here are the details of my shopping trip last night at Albertsons. I did two transactions.

Transaction #1:

4 Betty Crocker Supreme Brownie Mixes @ $2
4 Pillsbury Grand's Biscuits @ $1.25
2 Betty Crocker Frostings @ $1.67
-$0.75/2 MFQ brownie mix (SS 2/8) x 2
-$0.50/2 MFQ biscuits found HERE x 2
-$0.50 MFQ frosting (SS 2/8) x 2
= $12.84 + tax (and I got back a $10 catalina)
(Saved $16.90)

Transaction #2:

10 Progresso Soups @ $1.50
3 Campbell's Soup at Hand $1.00
-$0.50/2 MFQ Progresso (SS 1/4, SS 2/8) x 5
-$0.50 MFQ Soup at Hand (SS 1/11) x 3
-$0.60 MFQ soup at hand (the cashier happened to have it, and scanned it in)
-$10 catalina (from first transaction)
= $3.40 + tax (and I got back a $10 catalina)
(Saved $33.87)

So overall I spent $16.24 and got back a $10 catalina == $6.24 for 13 items == $0.48 per item! It was a good shopping day. And who couldn't use a little more soup for their food storage, right?

Total spent for February: $28.62 (Plus I've still got that $10 Albies cat)
