Saving Money Grocery Shopping!

Hey ya'll, I just have to share some more great savings. I'm slowly but surely learning how to coupon, and match them with store sales. Here's my shopping trip from last week. Grand total spent for all items pictured above: $13.07 (W/o the deals: ~$30!)

Here's the Breakdown:

Price Chopper
Two bags Best Choice Shredded Cheese  $2.49 each, on sale for $1.29 each, plus $1.00/2 coupon = $.79 each
Eight Dannon Yogurts(Limit 8) $.73 each, on sale for 4/$1.00 = $.25 each
Honey Nut Cheerios $3.99, on sale for $1.69, plus $.55 off coupon = $1.14
Sack Refund = saved $.05 (Price Chopper gives you 5 cents for each reusable bag you bring!)

Total spent: $4.88
Total saved: $10.14
Average price per item: 40 cents

Crisco Light Olive Oil on sale for $4.97, plus $1.00 off coupon = $3.97 (I tried to use 2 different coupons but the cashier said I couldn't. :C Could've saved another dollar...)
Jello Cheesecake on sale for 2/$4.00 = $2.00 (I've been craving cheesecake!)
KC Masterpiece BBQ(Limit 1) $1.69, on sale for $.89, plus $.50 off coupon = $.39
Stash Green Tea(20 ct) on sale for 2/$4.00, plus $.50 off coupon = $1.50 or 7.5cents/tea bag

Total spent: $8.19
Total saved: at least $2.81 (I don't know the original price of the sales items)
Average price per item: $2.04 (I'll blame this on the olive oil)

So... overall I paid an average of 81 cents per item!! Can't beat that!! Well, maybe you can, but I'll take that any day, especially for items we use and enjoy.
