Not too shabby! Especially considering I very rarely buy cereal! This works out really well since we still need to go to Sam’s Club for a few stock up items.

  1. I had a few items to return (nongrocery) and I usd that money towards my purchases that day. One of the items was a Christmas gift that I did not have a receipt for so it went on an in-store credit gift card, so I just had them place the whole return amount on the card so that I could keep it all straight. Since it was money already spent, I did not want to count it twice!
