Weekly shopping - the middle of baking...oops I ran out of something...edition

Last Saturday I was in the middle of working on baking some cakes (for cake balls) and mixing the ingredients for peanut butter balls (aka buckeyes) when I realized I was out of eggs to make more cakes.  Since chocolate, carrot and red velvet are part of my standart ball-making repetoire, I knew I needed to hit the store.  I also remembered that Marsh had a great ad for other non-baking items and sat down to make my list and gather my coupons before I left.  Here's what I got:

6 Oscar Mayer sliced bacon was $32.94 for $11.97 (B1G1 free plus 6 $.75 off coupons)
Perdue split chicken breatsts was $10.67 for $3.50
18 ct Marsh eggs (the only thing I really NEEDED) for $1.79
6 Kraft 8oz block cheese was $19.74 for $6.87 (just over $1 a block!)
6 Kraft Philly cream cheese was $11.94 for $4.50 (less than $1 per block!)
4 Reynolds foil was $19.56 for $5.96
9 Betty Crocker cheesy potatoes (boxed) was $17.01 for $2.70 (that's $.30 per box)
4 Chex cereal (yes more to match what I bought a few weeks ago) was $12.16 for $4.96 (not quite as cheap as last time...$1.24 this time per box and only $1.00 per box last time)

Along with some other odds and total before card and coupons was $166.50.  After cards and coupons my total was $65.44, saving 61%.

Total items purchased was 55 making the price per item only $1.18.

Savings to date at Marsh is 2679.78 and I've got ONE MORE TRIP (tomorrow!) before the end of the year.
