In the end, I ended up with a total of 50 items and only paid a total of $6.02 OOP!! Remember that the new sales start on Wednedsay, so if you're hoping to run any of these deals, you'll want to head out tomorrow! Have fun!!

UPDATE: I couldn't resist making one last trip. So I went back and ran the crescent roll and fruit snack deal one last time. I used 4) .75/1 Crescent roll coupons from the Joy of Football book, 1) $1.50/3 CRT fruit snacks coupon, and 1) .50/2 Fruit Snacks IP (doubled to $1). Paid $1.45 OOP and got back a $3 Catalina for buying 5 fruit snacks. So my Randalls weekly total is as follows: 59 items. $7.47 OOP. And I still have a $3 Catalina to spend on a future visit. So I got all 59 items for a grand total of $4.47. That's an average of $0.08 per item -- including the full-price tea and apple sauce 6 pk I bought without coupons!! Love it!!
