Here is what I got:
In general, I find it very hard to save significantly at craft stores. But I am still trying to gather things for M's craft-themed birthday party and there were some Jo-Ann's coupons in this Sunday's paper, so I thought I'd swing by. I spent $20.32 for $39.68 worth of craft supplies, a savings of 49%.
I had a little more success at Target, even though I needed to buy a few non-sale items. I found some great clearance items to use for the party, and I got 10 post-it notes for FREE! I spent $36.99 for $112.52 worth of groceries and party supplies, for a savings of 67%.
My Walgreens stop was very chaotic because the girls were pretty much done by then. I probably could've done a little better on my third transaction, but it was still one of my better trips to Walgreens. I spent $8.88 for $53.05 worth of merchandise, a savings of 83%!
Overall, including my mega-savings at Staples, it was a very good morning. After rebates, I spent a total of $78.24 for $328.82 worth of groceries and merchandise, an average savings of 76% for the day. Not bad for a Monday!
