Free & Nearly Free Stuff – With & Without Coupons

My strategy today was to drive up my total as high as I could today so that I would be able to use the $5 Off With $30 Purchase (Winn-Dixie Coupons from the Enjoy The City Books).  So I had to keep track of what was going in my cart and stop shopping as close to $30, $60, $90, or $120 (I had 4 coupons with me).  What made it so easy was the MoneyMakers still available from the Yellow Advantage Flyer (see my previous post for details).
