My Weekly Meijer Shopping Trip


I left Meijer today learning two lessons:
  • Lesson #1 - Don't bring your children with you when you shop.
  • Lesson #2 - Closely watch the total as your coupons are being scanned.  
A few of my coupons didn't go through (for some reason it was the Meijer Mealbox ones), so I am trying to figure out if I should go back and ask.  I think Lesson #2 wouldn't have happened if I had followed Lesson #1 (I would've noticed the total NOT go down when my coupons were being scanned because I wouldn't been trying to keep my kids from screaming and spin the bagging circle).

Overall, I still made out pretty well:

The items in red were the the ones that some of my coupons didn't work for.  I saved a total of $48.81 (coupons + in-store savings) giving me a savings percentage of 66%.  If the three additional coupons had went through as planned, I would've saved another $2.75 and my savings % total could have been 70%!


* UPDATE - I did stop by Meijer the next day and was able to get my $2.75 back for the Meijer Mealbox coupons that didn't work, therefore I did save 70%!
