Check Those Receipts

A few weeks ago, DH and I caught a mistake on our grocery bill. We were to get two containers of Parmesan cheese for a certain amount, but were charged the regular price for both.

Since then we've been checking our bills before we leave the store, and we've caught two other major mistakes: one for a $25 cheesecake (we didn't even buy a cheesecake), and instead of being charged for one package of yogurt we were charged for three (at $7.50 each, that's a big difference).

So, over a month, that's three weeks with major mistakes on our bill with a total of about $45. We've caught things in the past, but are kicking ourselves for not going every grocery bill with a fine-tooth comb. We wonder how much have we been overcharged over the years?
