Walmart Savings

So I went to Walmart because lots of other bloggers said that they found all sorts of toys on sale.  And then used all those toy coupons we got recently to get things for cheap or even free.  I figured I should go to get whatever I could.  I mean, if I can get something for free or nearly free, it only makes sense to get it and save it for Christmas gifts or donations. 

But as with nearly everything else I try to buy at Walmart, they did not have a single item that even came close to matching what I was looking for.  So flippin' typical.  I have not one, not two, but THREE Walmarts in my general area.  And I never ever ever have an ounce of luck.  Y'all must live in magical good Walmart areas.  Lucky for you.  I will resume avoiding the dreadful place.

Since I was there, I picked up a few items anyway. 

(2) Powerade  reg. $0.78
(1) Wardly Fish Food  reg. $1.48
(3) Reach Floss  reg. $0.88

(1) Buy One Get One Free Powerade manu Q
(1) $2/1 Wardly Fish Food print Q
(3) $1/1 Reach Floss manu Q

Total value purchased ... $6.13
Paid out of pocket ... $0.35
Percentage saved ... 94%

Also, when I was putting away my buggy at Target, I found a quarter on the ground.  And $0.10 of my total was the bottle tax on the Powerade.  So after the found quarter, I really only paid the $0.10 bottle tax, which is redeamable (Though I will fully admit that I only ever put them in the blue recycle box- I will not take it personally to be recycled and to get my $ back.  I'm lazy.).

At least the trip wasn't a complete waste. The Walmart closest to my house in the #2 most dangerous in California, so we don't go there. It sorta smells too.
