Also had a $20 Meijer Rx coupon(these coupons can help you save a great deal if you have scripts to fill, esp. on a monthly basis. Most stores offer rx savings coupons! You can check out my post on how to save with rx coupons HERE!)

I also had 2 $5 gift cards that I got this week from Huntington Bank for just stopping by to make a deposit. ( You can get $100 in FREE money by just opening  up an account. They have a branch at the Meijer in Bath Twnshp and more will be coming to all the Meijers by the end of the year)

I also had some other catalina coupons of your next orders that helped bring this balance down to ZERO!

Am I able to achieve $100 savings every week? Usually not.. more in the 70-90% range. I did not plan this shopping trip, but just grabbed items as I went down the aisle with my binder full of coupons!
