Quick Dollar General and Macey's Run 1/18/10 and Coupon Etiquette


So I ran to Dollar General today to grab electrasol with my $2.50 off coupons.  I had 4 so I got 4 boxes and paid just .50 cents a box!  Love it!! 

Then, I ran to Macey's because they had a few things on sale that I really wanted.  Now granted this is the first time I've ever been to Macey's but it was clean, friendly, and the prices really weren't bad at all.  Since I've been reading blogs and paying attention to the ads and deals that have been coming I've paid more attention to whats been on sale at other stores I don't generally go to.  Boy am I glad I did.  Macey's is part of the Associated Food Stores so they had in ad coupons that I could use with coupons I already had.  Plus this week in the ad they had a $3.00 MFG coupon for Quaker products when you buy 5.  How can you possibly beat that? 

So here is what I got a Macey's:
4 - 24 pks pure life water 2.98 each
4 - boxes Kellogs cereal 1.99 each
2 - chinet plates 2.99 each
3 - Sunbelt granola bars 3/$5
5 - boxes Quaker Oatmeal 1.78 each
2 - Pillsbury Toaster Strudel 2.00 each
3 - Malt o Meal Mini Spooners Cereal bags .89 each

Total = 46.43
-1.00/2 pure life
-1.00/2 pure life
-1.00/2 kellogs
-1.00/2 kellogs
-2.00 chinet
-2.00 chinet
-3.00 quaker
-1.50 in ad
-1.00 toaster strudel
-.55 toaster strudel
-B1G1 Sunbelt 1.66

total oop= 34.10

Oh and while I was in Dollar General I realized they had a packet of coupons that were sitting there.  One page was mfg and one page DG.  So I grabbed 2 and paid for my purchases and left.  Then I went to Macey's and used my coupons in my ad and walking out there were extra ads sitting there.  This got me to thinking about those types of things and what is the appropriate etiquette in taking your share?  You come by those ads, coupons, peelies, coupons on shelves... so how do you know exactly what is okay?  What are your thoughts on this subject?  I'd love to know!  Thanks!
