Okay, so here’s the details. Keep in mind there are 8 boxes of cereal, several organic/natural food items, plus items I did not have coupons for.

Total Before Coupons $191.94
Paid $85.74

Saved $106.20 – (the money I saved paid for new jeans for my kiddos)

Of the $85.74 that I paid, $8.25 was tax. Plus the cranberries, walnuts, & cashews were $12.27 by themselves. So without tax and my new favorite (expensive snack) it would have only been $65.22.
