Ok, I did MUCH better today than I usually do. I did pick up some peanut butter at the dollar store for $1.50 a jar (2 jars, creamy and chuncky), bacon bits 2 for $1, and odds and ends, not much really. However, the rest of the major shopping was done at Krogers.
Mine was doubling up to $1 and tripling up to $.70. (The latter is a recent development around here. However, VERY COOL!
First of all, my grocery list before sales and coupons totaled $301.22. I paided $145.12.
My receipt said I saved 52%.
Here are some of my deals:
Oscar Mayer Franks (on sale $.99 each)--purchased 2= $1.98
Country Time Lemonade (on sale 2 for $3)--purhased 4= $6
Had 2 coupons for these things together $1 off, doubled.
So, my $7.98 minus $4 = $3.98.
32 oz. Miracle Whip (hubby's favorite, on sale 2 for $3)--purchased 4= $6
Had 2 coupons $.50 off tripled: $6 - $3 = Spent $3 on 4 jars.
Jumbo Huggies Diapers= $9.97
Jumbo Pull-Ups= $9.97
2-80 ct. Huggie Tubs ($2.77 each)= $5.54
2 $1.50 off coupons doubled (to $2 each)= $4 off
2 $.50 off coupons tripled (to $1.50 each)= $3 off
Total spent= $18.48
8 Tubes (yes 8, supply was low
) Aquafresh= $12.82
4 $1 off coupons doubled to $2= $8 off
Total spent= $4.82 for 8 tubes of toothpaste
Clariol Herbal Essences Intensive Blends Shampoo and Conditioner:
2 each (2 for $5.88)= $11.76
4 $1 off coupons totaling $8
Herbal Essences Hair Color Kits (4 of them, I know, I know a lot, but I don't have to buy any for a year) $7.99 each= $31.96
4 $5 off coupons= $20 off
Heniz Ketchup was on sale for $.99 at the drug store. However, I noticed them at Kroger for $.79. Picked up two there instead. Better deal, even without a coupon.
I still went to the drug store. I picked up yet another Herbal Essence Hair Color Kit.
(I have a rebate for that store to make it free.) I used another $5 off coupon. I spent $3.99. However, you know how those companies do it. I will get back the sale price of $8.99. So, I will actually make $5.
There were a few other deals I picked up while I was at Kroger. However, I can't remember them. I had those written down before I left as I was looking over the sales ads and my coupons.
I did rather well this time, I think.
