***My sister and I are throwing a shower for my soon to be sister in law! I was tickled to find flour tortillas (36 for $3.79) at Costco! I'll be sharing a new party recipe soon!

Target (no picture, sorry)
*I needed a gallon of milk, and Target, who normally sells a gallon for $3.49, had them on sale for $1.99... so I price matched Kelloggs cereal (rolling a $5 GC and receiving a new one!), and I picked up several trial sized items.

I'm not sure how I ended up paying so little, but I checked out at the Customer Service desk and it took 10+ minutes and my cashier leaving to ask questions 5 TIMES... so, I think she *may* have paid me for my time.

Hey Laura - where did you price match the kellogs cereal to? I didn't think of that before I did it this week, but could go back! Also, do you remember where the IP for the goldfish came from? I don't see it on Macomb Money Savers...

Laura Webber

I price matched the Walgreens ad (front page) and the Goldfish IP has expired, it was from a couple of months ago!


This is a different note: wouldn't it be neat to start a list of prices at Costco? I know that all Costco's vary in price/product/variety AND they do change their prices. I made a huge price list last April for myself & noticed some of the increases were very significant. Just a thought...not like you or I have any extra time to spare.

Hmm, that is a smart idea! Let me brew on it!!!
