My trip to Winco

Did any of you brave the "Black Friday" crowds at the new Winco stores in Orem and Ogden today? One of our readers, Shelley, reported that in Ogden, she waited in line for 40 minutes for a cart and at least 30 minutes to check out. Was it worth it? You bet!! She also discovered something I didn't - while wandering down the drinks aisle, she found the Capri Sun Sunrise drinks that went with the manufacturer coupon (the ones in the main area were not the Sunrise variety so I assumed they were not included) - and, yes, they could be used with the in-ad coupon, making them free!!! Way to go, Shelley!!


I also went to Winco today, although I went to the one in Salt Lake. I was a little surprised that they had the crowds today, too! Not the "wait for a shopping cart" crowds, but the "wait at least 15 minutes to check out" crowds. Guess I shouldn't have been too surprised, though. Everyone wanted in on the great deals!! Here is what I got:
After tax, my total was $31.65. I bought 28 items and saved $18.48 with my coupons! You can see there were a few "extras" I bought, too, but the price was right!

I also used the following coupons:
.70/1 Pillsbury Crescent Rolls, here (which made my crescent rolls .78)
2.00/1 Oscar Mayer Lunch Meat, here (which made my lunch meat 1.00)

How was your experience at Winco?

GIVEAWAY: ERGObaby Carrier! -CLOSED-

Winner I have carried my little boy in a baby carrier since he was born. I love the convenience of strapping him in and not worrying about the hassle of a bulky stroller. It's also a comfort to hold my little guy close and safe. When I had the chance to review the ERGObaby carrier, I was thrilled to try something that could extend my baby wearing days. My first test was a true one...Costco. I admit that I didn't really look at the directions when I put the carrier on in the parking lot. But I didn't need to! After one look at a picture in the user manual, I strapped my 20 pound boy in, placed my little girl in the shopping cart, and started on my way through the aisles of Costco. I immediately noticed that the carrier more evenly distributed my son's weight than my normal carrier and held my boy high so my legs weren't bumping into his. This made it significantly easier to tote him around the store. Indeed my normal trips to Costco are exhausting. But
