I Said No Salt, No Salt!

I have been on the prowl for this flavor of Crystal Lite for weeks! Today I lucked out and found an endcap display of them. There are three flavors - margarita, appletini and mohito.

Bartender, gimme a rita on the rocks!
Its actually not bad! Although I gotta say, it could use a little kick. Maybe some Jose Cuervo? :)

I also finished out another gas deal on a second Price Plus card I have. I started it during the afternoon at one store, bought some more stuff at another store tonight, then finished it out at a third store. Or so I thought. As I'm looking at the receipt and wondering why the tracking amount is off, I realized I accidentally scanned a third Price Plus card I'd optimistically thrown in my coupon envelope. Epic sigh. Now I was halfway done with the gas deal...on two separate cards. What to do? Tomorrow is gonna be a crazy day and I'm not gonna have time to shop. So...I hit up another store and finished out both cards. I'm beat!

Here's the list of the goodies I got:
  • 19 Crystal Lites
  • Gold Medal Bread Machine Flour
  • 8 Betty Crocker Suddenly Salad Mixes
  • 8 boxes of Wheat Thins and Triscuits
  • 9 bags of Tyson chicken
  • 6 boxes of Betty Crocker potatoes
  • 3 packages of Oscar Mayer hot dogs
  • 3 Temptee cream cheeses
  • 4 Breakstone sour creams
  • 6 Pillsbury Grands biscuits
  • 1 Kraft BBQ sauce
  • 3 bonus size containers of I Can't Believe Its Not Butter
  • 2 Hellmann's Mayo
I haven't had time to run all the figures yet, but since I did the deal three times, I spent about $225. I got back three $25 gas gift cards and I'll submit for three $15 Heineken NBPR rebates (WYB $25.01 of premium meats) and with these purchases, I should have enough for two $25 Amstel NBPR rebates (WYB $100 of groceries). That's about $50 or so out of pocket for all these groceries. My pantry was pretty bare, so this is fine with me.
