Crazy crazy coupon lady

I just have to post about what I just did at Albertsons because I think it was pretty awesome.

I did 3 separate transactions because it was cheaper out of pocket right then and there for me since all I had on hand was a $5 bill and some change.

Transaction 1:
Tylenol Cold Multi-Symptom (the liquid kind)- Regular price $7.49
On sale for $4.99
Used $2.00/1 coupon from Tylenol.com
Used a $0.50 off my next purchase coupon from my last shopping trip
Total= $2.49 ($0.30 tax= $2.79)
Recieved a catalina coupon for $2.00 off my next purchase

Transaction 2:
Tylenol Cold Multi-Symptom (the liquid kind)- Regular price- $7.49
On sale for $4.99
Used $2.00/1 coupon from Tylenol.com
Used $2.00 off my next purchase from transaction 1
Total= $0.99 ($0.30 tax=$1.29)

Transaction 3:
2 bags of Halls cough drops- Regular price for 2- $3.98
On sale for $0.99 a bag [Side note, I accidentally grabbed one of the more expensive bags of Halls which ended up costing me an extra $1.49]
Used $1/2 coupon
Dial bar soap 3pack- Regular price- $2.79
On sale for $1.50
Used $0.35/1 coupon that rounded up to $1/1 with Albertson's Great Coupon Round Up Promo
Used $2.00 off my next purchase from transaction 2
Total= $0.98 ($0.26 tax= $1.24)

In the end I got $23.11 worth of items for only $5.32
Which was just about all I had in my wallet and now we're ready for cold and flu season. :)
