Okay, Food Lion had a few great deals going on.  First was buy 5 of certain dessert items save $5. instantly.   Limit 1 per transaction.

Also, buy any 5 specified Kraft items save $5 instantly.  Limit 1 per transaction.

I was able to pair these two promos with some GREAT coupons and really save some $$.  I did LOTS of transactions.

*14 whole fruit popsicles-averaged $1 a box

*6 cool whip-FREE

*Kraft Shredded Cheese 15- averaged $.50 each

*10 Kraft sliced cheese averaged$1 each

*3 Oscar Mayer Shaved Meat -averaged $1.50 each

*6 Smuckers IceCream topping averaged $.20 each

*4 Cereal BOGO $1.25 each (not as cheap as I like to pay, but we are running out of kid cereal!)

*Capri Sund $.07  had a Food Lion internet coupon for $2. off

(I am a little leary of these b/c I printed this straight from FL website and yet the manager kept asking where I got it from b/c it didn’t look real?!?)

I spent more ECB than usual, but that is the thing about my monopoly money sometimes I use it to buy things I need.  Today I needed grape juice so I was willing to overpay a little on the juice to use my monoploy money aka ECB.  I also wanted to get some more John Frieda stuff b/c I love this stuff and it has been a great deal this month!

I have no way to separate my order and Brad’s order.    It was a good night.  CVS has had a great deal going on John Frieda Hair prducts  spend $10 get 3 ECB back.

There were $2 q floating around and I bought more off of ebay so I was paying on average $1.50 after q & ECB…SWEET!

I paid for a lot of this Out of Pocket b/c I didn’t have that many low value ECB so I will save them for next week.

*2 clearance boxes similac formula $2.89 each

*Crayola Color Wonder $5.99, good birthday gift

*Pantene conditioner $.49 after CVS Qn
