I received a e-coupon from Dillon's for $15 off a $70 purchase, so I figured that receiving an additional 20% my groceries was worth an extra trip to Dillon's this week.
Since we are trying to stock up on some items that can sit on the shelf for a long period of time, I made it a point to try and use this opportunity to buy some of these products. I also wanted to take advantage of their $5 off of 5 items deals since I had some good coupons to go with the sale.
Finally, I had the opportunity to go to the store today without my kids and I won't be able to go shopping this weekend, so this was the best day to go.
My total after all my coupons was 62.73 (tax included). By carefully entering the price of every product into my calculator app, I kept my initial grocery total close to $70. I think I might have missed one item because I thought I was only over by about $1.
