I had to get the manager to come over and ok the purchase and I had quite the crowd at the end... everyone kept asking me... have you seen the extreme coupon show. Um.. no I have never seen it sorry. I just did all my Easter Candy shopping this week. I had been collecting all my Easter candy coupons for about a month. I am done and ready for Easter now. hehehe.

Saturday - 3 trips to Pick N Save because they had double days that you could double 10 coupons. I also learned you only had to spend $25 BEFORE coupons. That made it easier and I think I want to do it again. I thought it was after. That is way too hard for me to do. Before is easy... I do not have a picture of the last one because my husband did the run and I forgot until a few minutes ago.  The buy 6 Kelloggs, $10 off, and 2 gallons of milk was also part of the deal.
