This week Smiths has their KickOff Promotion going on- Buy 10 participating items, get $5.00 off (you can do this in multiple groups of 10) 

Sorry the picture is a little dark-

1 DiGiorno Pizza $4.49- $3.99 after Promo- Used $1/1 coupon from RP 9/12- Final Price $2.99- apparently there is also a catalina coupon that when you buy 2- you get a $1.00 Catalina coupon- I didn't know that until after I came home. Oh well...
6 Jello Puddings (large size) $1.09- $.59 after Promo- Used Buy One Get One Free from a display- Final Price $.30 each
14 Nabisco On the Go Cups $1.00- .50 after Promo- Used $1/2 Coupons from a previous display- Final Price- FREE!

My Total before scanning my card and coupons was $79.66- and after my card was scanned, about $35.00 and then after coupons- $10.27- Total Savings of 88%- $69.39- Not too shabby :)

* I get an email monthly that has 4 "coupons" that I can load onto my card that provided I buy certain items, I get extra bonus points- 75 extra points for buying 3 cans of either tomato sauce, paste or cans, 50 extra points for 2 bottles of sauces or condiments, 50 extra for pizza. So that is the reason for the tomato sauce, and really the BBQ sauce, there are others we like better, and the pizza I was already going to get, so I ended up getting 175 in extra bonus points today*
