Transaction #1I did my first and only shopping trip for the 4/22-4/28 sale week. Man! It's been one crazy week for us! Nothing spectacular my first transaction at Vons. I went into Vons armed with my shopping list, (complete with 3 different transaction scenarios). But sadly, my scenarios didn't work out like I was hoping for due to items being out of stock. O'well! So this is what my first transaction ended up looking like.
