Weekly Shopping Trip 9/25


So I went to Kroger, Walgreens, and Walmart today.  Yet again I had couponing issues.  This time I had issues with using the Walgreens October Coupon Booklet, which started today.  Walgreens has Mentos Up2U gum for $0.99 when you use their in-ad coupon, well if you buy 2 then you can use the IVC from the October Coupon Booklet which is $1/2...so it would make them $0.49/each.  Well  the IVC coupon wouldn't work and the manager told me it was because it wasn't the same items...the only thing different was the flavor (which was not stated on the coupon).  So I don't know if I should have tried to use the IVC before the in-ad coupon or what...but I also had a $1/2 coupon from a few weeks ago (which would have made my gum FREE).  So anyway I had issues again.  But here is what I did!
