Marketing Mama with a guess of $24. The rest of you gave me WAY too much credit, or you haven’t bought a box of cereal in a decade! The actual price was $22.35 and the breakdown is:
6 General Mills cereals: $20 – $10 ECB – coupons for $1 and $.75 = $8.25
Playtex: $7 – $2 Q = $5 (should have passed on this “deal”; generics at Target are cheaper)
2 Kotex: $9 – $2 and $1.75 coupons = $4.25
2 Listerines: 2 for $9 – $4.50 RR – two $1 coupons = $2.50
2 Progressos: $2 – .50 Q = $1.50
Ajax: $.80 w/ Walgreens coupons -$.20 coupon = $.60
Colgate: $3 – $2 ECB – $.75 coupon = $.25
Sure: $2.50 – $1.50 Q – $1 Q = free
I could get all this for free today but it’s going to be cold (again) and once the rest of the fam has headed south for their weeklong Christmas festivities, I have the house to myself for three days. I plan to scrapbook, watch movies, sleep, read and eat nothing but ice cream. OK, probably not nothing but ice cream because although I gave up on my healthy eating quest almost as soon as it began, I’m not one to seek out a raging stomach ache.
So Missy, e-mail me with which item you want and your mailing address, you lucky girl you
The rest of you, if you’ve never read Missy’s blog, check it out. It’s great.
oh, and seven comments isn’t shabby but nothing special. My most commented-on post so far is the last little contest I had. And it didn’t even have a fabulous prize, just bragging rights! ha!
