Whew! I am beat. I worked three twelve hour shifts and then came home and did my weekly shopping. I am pooped! But I managed to get most of the deals I wanted. Not all, but most. Now, don’t be surprised, but I did some heavy duty stocking up on a few things. The prices were just too good not to. Don’t worry, I didn’t clear any shelves. I made sure I left some behind. OK, OK… I will admit it…. I did take all the creamy peanut butter, but I left a lot of crunchy.
Here is the breakdown at Wal-Mart:

Since I didn’t get everything I wanted at Wal-Mart, I did the convenient thing and headed over to Target. Target makes their price matching difficult and their policy is NOWHERE NEAR as generous as Wal-Mart. But that is a blog for another day.
