I rocked at the grocery this morning

Today I rocked at the grocery store. I got:
  • 6 packages of instant mashed potatoes (Andrew eats these as snacks...)
  • 7 bags of Birds Eye Steam Fresh veggies (Might last us a week. We love these.)
  • 4 bags of Kraft shredded cheese
  • 2 containers frosting (making cake pops for Easter!)
  • 1 boxed brownie mix (Giada made an amazing dessert recipe that needs this mix for)
  • 1 boxed cake mix
  • 2 cans Dole pineapples
  • 3 pack Greenwise Paper towels (the Penny item)
  • $50 AMEX gift card
All this for $60.30

Seems like a lot at first. But I had a $10 off coupon for that AMEX gift card. There was also a $4.95 activation fee. Essentially, I made $5.05 on that transaction.

Had I not had that gift card purchase, I would have still only paid $15.35 for all those groceries.

But, considering the fact that I gave the cashier $60.30 and she gave me my $50 card back to me with my merchandise, I only paid $10.30.

I am pretty happy with that.
