What's your time worth?

My hubby is home today and I HATE just sitting around when we could be doing perfectly productive stuff together. . . husband and wife, hand-in-hand. So what did we do? He (happily) helped me gather some coupons & we went to Fry's! Here's how it went!

We bought:

12 - Cinnamon Life cereal
18 - Cap'n Crunch w/ berries (2 peanut butter)
11 - Brut deodorant
4 - Tic-Tacs
9 - Celestial Seasonings herbal teas
8 - boxes of Puff's tissues w/ lotion
(to see the Fry's sales going on right now, along with the corresponding Q's (?), click HERE)

We paid:
$6.23

We saved:
$205.65
An average of 96.8% savings!

Time spent looking up Fry's deals:
About 30 seconds, it's all RIGHT HERE, the same place it is every week!

Time spent finding (?) & cutting out Q's (?) that we used:
About 20 minutes, while watching a movie & trying to keep my 2 y/o from taking off with my scissors.

Time spent at Fry's?
About 15 minutes gathering everything, and 15 minutes at the self-checkout (so that we didn't clog a regular checkout stand with our 5 transactions)

Is your hour & a half-ish worth $205.65 to you?

*We did 5 separate transactions to get the Quaker cereal 6/$6.00 and to get all of my coupons double/tripled.
**Fry's will only double/triple 3 like coupons each transaction. If you have more than 3, the 4th & so on will be honored at face value. Do more transactions!
