My Shopping Trips: Stop & Shop and ShopRite

Today I had 2 things in mind to do. The first was to start using my $15 Stop & Shop Catalinas from the Gift Card deal last week. I have 7 of them to use. The second was to finish up with my Gas Card Deal at Shop Rite. After stopping back at ShopRite during the week to pick up another pack of the Tyson Boneless Chicken on sale, I only need $20.86 to hit the $75 mark.

Stop & Shop

Before I tell you what I bought, let me tell you how this was suppose to go and then how it went. I went there with my husband and one of my daughters. My plan was to do 3 transactions to use up 3 of my catalinas. But, half way through loading up my cart, I realized I only brought 2 of the catalinas instead of 3. So, instead of unloading some of the items, I just bought them. So, my second transaction was higher then I wanted.
