Even Pros Can Make Mistakes

Well we just did our last weekly shop of the month and there is so much that we like, it was a pretty big shop. I usually don't like to get much over $25 per shop, opting instead to go multiple times so I can use a $5/$25 competitor coupon for each order. But to tell you the truth, I'm getting a little tired of all this shopping. I wasn't totally on my A game and made a mistake in the store that ended up costing probably about $5.23. I picked up the Planters Deluxe Mixed Nuts (with sea salt) and apparently they weren't BIGI, so of course then I paid for the 3rd can of nuts AND the 4th can. Anyway, DH talked me out of going to exchange for the correct item - he said are you really going to go in and ask for $5.23 back when you only paid $10 for $140 worth of product??? I actually used a gift card I got from overage earlier this month so it didn't really even come out of any budget or anything. The silly receipt is 44 inches long so it would kinda be embarrassing to show them my error. Oh well, I can live with it.
 
Anyway, the moneymakers this time were the Vivarin and the Sominex (in the front of the picture) and 3 schick razors, plus I would have made $0.71 for each 4 cans of nuts if I hadn't screwed up and got the "deluxe" nuts. They better be good. The savings basically were from lots of stacking of Publix Q's and Target Q's with MQ's. So here's my shopping list, I actually make this spreadsheet and try to go with it, but I have to fly by the seat of my tight pants sometimes. Today was one of those days, and thats when mistakes happen.
