I went to Shaws with the kids today and surprisingly didn't mess up too much.

Wild Harvest Rice Milk $2.19 (I'm going to make my daughter pancakes)
Newman's Own Salsa $2.79 - .50 mc (doubled)
6 Old El Paso Taco Seasoning @ .69 each -(3) .60/2 mc (undoubled)
10 Old El Paso Shells @ $1.29 each - (1) .60/2 mc (undoubled) and (3) .60/2 mc (doubled)
2 Francesco Rinaldi Omega Pasta Sauce @ $1.00 each - (2) .30 mc (undoubled)
3 Sierra Mist 12 Packs @ $3.00 each plus .60 each deposit (not pictured)
Oscar Meyer Deli Creation Crackers $1.99 - $1.00 mc (my son's lunch- how unhealthy huh?)
Cucumber .75 (lost it in the car- found it an hour later)
2 Ears Corn on the Cob @ .69 each (the first time I've seen it this year- hope it tastes Ok!)
5 lb Bag Russet Potatoes $1.49
Grape Tomatoes $2.49
1.18 lb Haddock $8.25 (not pictured)

Total: $43.57; received 2 $3 off Beef or Chicken Catalina coupons and will submit for a $6.00 Bud Light Lime Seafood Rebate

I did 2 separate transactions because I wanted to get the 2 Beef/Chicken coupons.

I had one more Old El Paso coupon but lost it in the confusion of my son trying to help me checkout.My Francesco Rinaldi coupons had to be entered manually because they beeped and were not entered right because they didn't double.

The North Attleboro store has a definite stick up their ass when it comes to DND coupons which is their right but how annoying. It doesn't help that I never have a good experience shopping there. I really like the Mansfield store- everyone is so nice and the store is very clean. I didn't go there because my son is still a little iffy with the potty training and he wouldn't pee before we left so I had to go to the closer store to avoid any potential accidents. has the DND Old El Paso coupons and has ones that do not say DND.

I was a bit frazzled by the time I checked out so all in all I only lost $1.80 from not paying attention. I know that I am over my budget by a few dollars but I am stocked up on stuff we use all of the time and I just won't spend as much next week (maybe). There are a few things I need from Stop and Shop this week but I have a $5 Catalina from the P&G promo they had last week so my OOP shouldn't be more than a couple of dollars. And I may do the Shaws P&G Catalina this week but I still have a bunch of money left in my Household Items budget.
