I love couponing (and so do my kids)

This is my latest purchase. My 12 year old daughter went with me so that we could have 2 carts. The only thing in the picture that I did not have a coupon for was the stir fry veggies, but they were on sale. Any guesses on how much all of this cost? (Wish I had a good prize to give away about now).
I spent a total of $26.37. My total savings after coupons, and store card savings was $35.37. I know it isn't extreme couponing material, but I was excited.

Here is a little breakdown of what I 'didn't' spend.
Sweet n Sour Sauce up front--FREE
Ricola Cough Drops---FREE
Chinet Napkins---$0.35 (give or take a cent or two)
Cereal $1 a box (I think, I have a hard time figuring out what coupon went where on the reciept)
The rest was a savings of about 50%.

The fun part was seeing my 12 year old getting excited about how much she was going to save on her purchase. The Cashier was even cool about me splitting up the order. He got a kick out of my daughter getting excited as did the customers in line behind us.
