*I know the SoftSoap coupons were for a certain size but Marsh Supermarket had a “special buy size” for $1.00 which met the requirements of the coupon.
**I hadn’t intended to buy it but they were giving out samples and it was so good I had to have it LOL!!!

The person at the register said “Wow!!   Good job!!   You get the prize for today!!!”   I also had to get a raincheck for the Green Giant frozen vegetables, they were all out of corn.   And, I’m done for the week because with my stock on hand, there is nothing more we need :)

Groceries for 6 people for the week $58.30!!

I’m pretty excited :)   I’m going to CVS tomorrow and have a $20.00 gift card and a coupon for $5.00/$30.00.   I should do pretty well there too!!!
