My trip....so sad

As I was getting through my transaction it went negative, I thought that was strange because I know I did my math right, so I let my 4 year old pick out a candy bar. I paid my .20 oop, then as a picked up my bags I saw she forgot to ring up my paper towels. So I had to pay for them oop because I didn't have any ECB's small enough for the 1.06. I was so frustrated. I guess I can't complain. I got:

1st transaction

1 Colgate total
3 kids colgate toothpaste
2 pkgs kids band-aids
1 fusion razor
1 candy bar
1 pkg benefiber
1 nutratrim gum

ecb used $15.99
oop $.20
ecb earned $15.99

2nd transaction
paper towel
1.06 oop

Then of course I asked if I could exchage the candy bar for the paper towels, you should have seen my little girl's poor little face!! I thought, wow, I'm not going to break her heart over a dollar. Not a bad trip overall....just frustrating that it could have been better...

That is a great trip ~ you have to focus on the positive!

And once you have a stockpile of paper towels you will be able to say "never mind I will get them next time"

Your first transaction you didn't even pay tax on the razor! I do the same thing, I get hung up on how I could have gotten it for just a little bit lower! You got over $20 worth of stuff for $1.26 ~ about a 95% saving for the trip = pretty awesome!
