Free Milk - Thank you Walmart and Breathe Right

I have to admit I have had the $1.50/1 Breathe Right (1-30 RP) strip coupons clipped for a long long time.  I was working on getting them free at Kroger, but that was such a pain because they beeped and then I would have to explain the adjusting down, yada yada yada (yes I am a Seinfeld fan!)
Anyhoo, I decided to keep them in my coupon purse because I am just lazy and didn't want to file them.  Well FINALLY I found the trial size at Walmart (I actually went in scouting out for other things that would match some high value catalina coupons I have been scoring at Kroger).  They were on a clip strip (that is retail speak for those little plastic holders of small items like this- at least that is what we called them in MY Walmart days).  Everyday price of .97 WHOOP!!!!!!

So, what did I need tonight?  Milk.  I could not have planned this better if I had tried.  Grabbed 12 Breathe Right that gave me exactly $6.36 in overage.  Hopped (ok, I slowly walked but picturing me hopping would be so much more entertaining) over to the dairy case and what do you know, milk $3.18!!! Apparently Walmart got the memo that I was already having a crappy day and I was not a woman to be messed with today and they decided to tilt the Earth and align the stars for me to send me home in a good mood!

Total spent: 12 coupons, about 10 minutes and ZERO in actual cash!

Good luck, I hope some of you find these too and let me know what goodies you spend to overage on!
(And YES I know I am especially zany on this post but it is my blog and I can do whatever I want to nah nah nah nah nah nah!)

You are having entirely too much fun with this new Walmart coupon policy. Free milk! Way to go. I hate shopping at WM as much as you used to....but I may have to get over that and try some of this overage fun. Keep these great deals coming.

Why do I even bother saving my inserts? This must have been a regional q. I was so excited, then... ugh!
