Weekend Shopping $56.82

I had a panic moment this week when an indicator turned on inside my car "Check Engine Oil NOW."  Ahhh!  I was out running errands so I just went to the closest store that would have motor oil.  It was Wal-Mart.  I picked up a few needed produce items for $3.37 while I was there.

Next I spent $20.28 at Albertsons.  I had that $20/$20 coupon from my gift card purchase to use. 
Cereal - $1.88 each with ($1.50/3 MC) and ($1.00/2 MC) made each $1.38. 
Green Olives with Pimento - $1.19 on clearance
Apples - $.78/lb ($1.00 SC) = $4.53
Ham - $2.39 on clearance
Creamer - $2.99 ($1.00 MC) = $1.99
Gum - $1.00 on sale.  I had to throw it in to be over $20.

Next was a big trip to Fred Meyer spending $41.17.   

Cereal - $1.67 on sale ($2.00/4 MC) = $1.17 each.  I didn't realize the sale price was limited to 3 boxes so I went to the customer service desk for a price adjustment.  I was so surprised and appreciative when it turned out my 4th box was supposed to be $3.79 but the gal gave me the sale price.  Hooray!
Creamer - $2.69 on sale ($1.00/2 MC qty. 3) = $2.19 each
Organic Milk - $5.28 (EEP!  Price has gone up)
Sour Cream - $2.00 each with ($.80/2 MC) = $1.60 each

Sausage - $6.99 (to use at 3 different Christmas parties)
2# carrots - $.99
Lettuce - $.98 each
Oranges - $.68/lb
Bag lettuce - $.99

Finally I took my daughter out for a date at Starbucks.  The nearest one is attached to a QFC so we browsed while she sipped her cocoa and I drove one of those huge car carts around.  I ended up spending $12.00 total.

Baguette rounds - $.69 each on clearance
Pears - $.99/lb
