    Okay, I am a few days behind on posting this, because I was looking for a second receipt (stopped at two stores) and I have been unsuccessful at finding it. So I am going to have to just list what I bought at the second store, without prices. The total at the second store was $30.76.

    First, Safeway:

    10 lb bag of white sugar $7.79
    4 gallons water ($1/ea) $4.40
    Spray starch $2.69
    Half and Half (1 pint and 1 qt) $3.48
    Cottage cheese $3.99

    Kashi Go-Lean Crunch cereal (2) $8.98
    2.5 gallon bottled waters (2) $5.20
    Yogurt (various - 34 total) $15.38
    Sliced bacon (2 packs) $7.98
    Half and Half (1/2 gallon) $3.99
    Pistachios $4.99
    Salad $4.99

    Total coupon savings: $10.38

    Okay, the cereal and yogurt are all for breakfast. I live on yogurt parfaits.

    The Half and Half is for my coffee and the lack thereof is what drove me out of the house today.
