Final tally with sales and coupons :

Arnold Bread: I bought 2 at BOGO and had 2 coupons for .55 each which both doubled.
Sargento cheese snack: I bought 1 at 3.00 and had a 1.00 off coupon
Nellie’s free range eggs: I bought 1 at 2.50 had 1.00 a load to card discount and a 1.00 off coupon
Green Giant frozen veggies: I bought 2 at 1.50 each and had a 1.00 when you bought 2 coupon
Haagen-Dazs ice cream: I bought 1 at 3.00 and used a 2.00 off coupon
Tide Simply Pure detergent: I bought 3 at 1.99 each, with a load to card discount of 1.00 when you buy 2.
Bertolli olive oi: I l bought 1 at 3.74 and had a coupon for .60 that didn’t double. (See mistakes below)
Lysol wipes: I bought 1 at 1.99 and had a .50 coupon that doubled.
Crystal light water flavoring: I bought 2 at 2.00 each and had a 1.00 off when you buy 2 coupon
M&M’s bags: I bought 1 at 3.00 and 1 at 3.50. I used a 1.50 when you buy 2 coupon when it turned out my BOGO coupon was expired. (See mistakes below)
Rachel Ray cat food: I bought 1 at 9.99 and had both a 2.00 load to card discount and a 4.00 off coupon
Minute Rice ready to serve cups: I bought 4 at 1.67 each and had a .50 doubling coupon for each one
Deer park water 24 pack: I bought 1 at 3.99 and had a 1.00 coupon
Tom’s of Maine toothpaste: I bought 1 at 3.50 and used both a load to card discount for 1.00 and a 1.50 off coupon
Hormel sandwich lunch meat: I bought 1 for 3.50, and had a load to card discount for .50 and a .50 coupon that doubled
I also bought in produce (because I needed them andyway) a 5lb bag of white potatoes on sale for 2.99 and a 1lb bag of carrots on sale for 1.25

After sales and coupons, I also got 3.00 from apps rebates, all from Ibotta. 2.00 of it was for the “May Boost bonus” which you got if you redeemed any rebate.
I didn’t notice the Bertolli .60 coupon didn’t double until I checked the receipt at home. I will be double-checking the Giant coupon policy to see if it has changed.
The M&M’s were my fail. I thought I had a BOGO coupon, but I forgot today’s date and let it expire. At the register, I found another coupon in my binder for 1.50 off 2 bags, so I saved 1.50 instead of 3.00. A little disappointed.
My final total was:
Total before savings 103.65
Total after savings 40.08
Apps rebates 3.00
After all 37.08
Savings 66.57 or about 64%
And, I now have over 500 gas points, which is .50 off every gallon. I will try to be on fumes the next time I gas up to take full advantage. That probably won’t be hard since I tend to forget to get gas until I’m under a fourth of a tank.

The way I drive, that shouldn’t be a problem, I usually do that anyway.

Nice job! My coupon coup today was sausages. Normally $1.99 each, they were on sale for $1.25. Then I had a $1 off coupon, so it was 25¢. One loaded to card, one in hand, I got two packages for 50¢. I also had various freebies from the Monopoly game that just ended, so tonight's pasta dinner is costing about $1.50 for four servings.
