This was a strange shopping trip. By the time I checked out I was pretty discouraged about not finding some stuff. For some reason I didn't go through all my stuff, prepare my register rewards, find fillers, etc. I just paid everything oop. I don't know what was wrong with me!!! I paid $19.73 oop today and received $15 in RR's so I didn't do awful, I just could have made money if I wasn't so grumpy. So now I still have $35 in RR's from last week plus $15 from today. If everything goes right for the rest of the week I'll have $20 or so more. How the heck am I going to spend $70+ RR's next week???

I know exactly how you feel, I did the same thing this week with the lack of planning! I think that it was because it was kind of a boring week, especially after the amazing week we had last week. You still did great though!

Thanks Meghan!! I'm glad to know I'm not the only one that poops out at the end of a disappointing trip. Cute cat!!!!

Thought about this as I was driving today. I have $45 RR--yikes! Publix accepts my Wags RR; how about a gas card if your grocery accepts Wags RR?

Thank you, he likes to "help" when I am trying to coupon. And you should read my Target post from this week, it is all about how frustrated I get when things don't go well on my coupon trips! :)

Susan - great idea, but I'm pretty sure none of my grocery stores do that. I am so jealous of everyone who has Publix. On second thought, Tom Thumb may, but they are SO expensive in general. I was able to use up $20 in RR's yesterday because I finally found some store with Gillette stock. Yay!
Meghan - I just read your Target post. I SO feel you. It pains me to check out with no coupons and no amazing loot!
