Albertsons Trip #2 – Sunday 10/16/11!

I wasn’t smart enough to take pictures of my Albertsons trip #1 OR my awesome RiteAid trip.  I will post about both of those later and when I do, you will just have to imagine the pile on my countertop! 😉

Kam, Mel & I (and T) headed into Albertsons Sunday evening to take advantage of the Twice the Value coupons in this weeks paper.  This was perfect!  The store was calm & quiet and we could essentially coupon in peace.  Well, except for me & my angry baby!  She’s not quite into this couponing thing yet!

I had already gone earlier in the day so I had to throw together a trip plan after the girls got to my house.  The trip was great, however I lacked quite a bit of concentration as my baby had no interest in being there.  If I didn’t have my coupons all separated out into multiple transactions before I got there, I would have been doomed!

So, here’s how my trip panned out:

Transaction #1:

(3)  Snuggle Fabric Softener $3.99 each & part of the spend $30 get $10 back
