Shaws Scenarios

I did 5 transactions today at different stores. The first store I messed up and could kick myself! lol. But as I said below, when I only received 1 set of 15 I walked out to my car and tried to figure it out. Sure enough the bounty was $13.49 regular price not $13.99 like I had thought. The ONE time I don't double check the price tag! Figures! lol.

- not sure why it was so high since he scanned them I should have gotten the tax credit.

YOU ARE THE QUEEN!! I bow down and aspire to be like you!! ;) I always have to take my kids with me to the store so trying to do multiple trips is crazy. Hoping the husband comes home at a decent time today so I can do another round of baby junk.

Thanks for letting me know about the Gerber Baby Food being part of the baby - that's cheaper than the Puffs and I can pawn it off on some little baby I know.
