$3.26 spent, $38.44 saved (92%)
...and $15 in catalinas earned!
I can't resist free butter, and I was completely out of brown sugar, so another Safeway run was clearly needed! I bought 10 sticks of butter using ten $1 coupons, and 4 bags C&H sugar using four $.35 coupons. I used $12 in catalinas from this transaction to bring my total down to $3.26 and got back $15 in catalinas (five $2 cats for the butter, and one $5 cat for spending $25 on the HFTH promo). I could have brought the total down to $0.26 by swapping out a $2 cat for the $5 cat I had earned last time but since the expiration date on the ICBINB cats was less than 1 week away, I decided it was best to use that up now. The actual "net cost" of items pictured above is $0.26- not bad at all!
