A Quick Savings Catch-Up

July 1, 2009

Even though I haven’t been blogging it, I have been grocery shopping (and saving money!) the last few weeks.  I had every intention of blogging about my trips….   I took pictures of everything and put my receipts aside… but alas, I didn’t blog.  And now I’m having a hard time remembering what coupons I used for which deals, and let’s face it, these deals are over and done with now.  Here is a quick savings catch-up to hopefully get me back on the blogging track!

Kroger: 

The theme of this trip was “I’m THIRSTY!”, wouldn’t you agree?

Kroger 29

 Total Savings:   $6.39   (a lousy 29%)

Total Out of Pocket:   $15.42

This was the first week I took advantage of the “Buy 10 items, get $3 off” promotion.

Kroger 63
Total Savings:   $31.93   (63%)

Total Out of Pocket:   $19.69

 

Publix:

And the theme of this trip was “Processed Food Paradise!”

Publix13

Total Savings:   $26.37   (59%)

Total Out of Pocket:   $18.12

Kroger Savings – Free Lemonade!

May 22, 2009

I love to see other people’s shopping deals on the blogosphere…  that’s what motivated me to start my own blog.  I wanted to be able to show off my great deals too.  One of the things that I’ve seen people do before that I really like is a comparison picture that shows what you *could* have gotten for the same price had you paid full price for the things you bought.  This week’s (second) Kroger shopping trip is a great example of this!!

If I had paid full price for what I was buying at Kroger, the following picture shows what I could have gotten for the $11.00 I spent: 
Kroger6

But instead, using the Country Time Lemonade coupons that I found at Publix, the weekly sale items, and a (surprise!) Kroger 3-day sale, I was able to get all of this for $11.00:
Kroger5

Here’s the price breakdown:
(8) Country Time Lemonade – On sale 10/ $10, (8) $1.00 off coupons, Final Price:  FREE!

Imitation Crab Meat – On sale for buy-one-get-one-free or $3.49/ 2, Final Price:  $1.74 

(2) Kroger Cream Cheese – On sale 10/ $10, Final Price:  $1.00 each

Minute Maid Cherry Limeade – On sale for $0.99, Final Price:  $0.99
*I tried it yesterday, it’s almost as good as Sonic!

(4) Kroger Potato Chips – On sale with the 3-day sale (Thursday – Saturday) for 2/ $3, Final Price:  $1.50 each

Total Savings:   $32.21   (75%)    

Total out of Pocket:   $11.29           

This is a new Kroger best for me!!

Kroger Savings – Best yet! 74%

May 19, 2009

Oh my word!!  I had my best yet savings trip to Kroger today.  I was amazed when I got my receipt and saw my total savings.  It was awesome!!  I got a handful of items free and I was able to stock up on items for my upcoming b-day paaaaartay.  There were “$1 off 2 Oscar Mayer hotdogs” blinkie coupons right in the meat case!  Talk about great timing.  I was also waiting on a good price for Tang.  I read somewhere a few years ago to run powdered Tang through your empty dishwasher to clean it.  I’ve been using it ever since and I had recently run out.  I’m not sure if it’s the acidity in the Tang or what, but it always works like a charm!  (Edited to Add:  Ok, I looked it up…..   It’s the citric acid.  You can also use unsweetened Kool-Aid.  Many people like lime for the freshly cleaned smell.) 

Here is what I got:

Kroger4

Vitamin Water 10 – On sale for $1.00, $1.00 off coupon, Final Price:  FREE!

Weber Grill Seasoning – On sale for $1.00, $0.50 off coupon doubled, Final Price:  FREE!

*Totino’s Pizza – $1.00, Final Price:  $1.00
*I think the person in line behind me will be missing a frozen pizza when they get home!  This was not mine, but it got scanned with my stuff and I paid for it.  I didn’t notice until I got home and started staging my picture!  Oh well, it was only $1!

Total Savings:   $88.58   (74%)

Total Out of Pocket:   $32.16 

I bought 38 items, so that averages out to $0.82 an item!  This is definitely my best Kroger trip yet!

Let’s go Krogering….

February 24, 2009

For the best of everything!!

My husband was sweet enough to accompany me on a trip to Kroger after a dinner out on Sunday night.  (It didn’t hurt that we ate at a restaurant in the SAME shopping center as Kroger!)  Since I don’t make it to Kroger very often, I had collected an envelope of coupons that I needed to use.  Not to mention that I was excited to get some cheap Ocean Spray juice!  There is a new coupon magazine out at Publix that has $1 off Ocean Spray juice manufacturers coupons in it.  I got 3 copies on Sunday afternoon with the intention of using them at Kroger!   Here’s what we got:

(3) Ocean Spray Juice –  On sale for $1.98, (3) $1 off coupons, Final Price $0.98 each
