I went to Kroger again yesterday. I went because we needed some lettuce, cucumber and Diet Coke. My total bill was $18.97. Since I was going to Kroger anyway I decided to work a 10 item $5 deal. Here is what I got:
items marked with a * are some of the Kroger deal items
3-12 packs of Diet Coke 3/$10
1 leaf lettuce $1.99
1 cucumber $1
*2-10 ct Excedrin $1 each on sale.
*2 Betty Crocker Augraten potatoes $1.49 on sale
*2 Breyer icream $2.50 each on sale
*4 Peppridge Farm golfish $1 a bag on sale
Here is my coupons:
2 excedrin $2 off each. I used the coupons because they gave me $1.50 overage on each one.
2 Betty Crocker .40each
My Total without any deals would have been $27.57
Total OOP: $18.97
I am a stay at home mom who is fed up with spending a large portion of income on grocery bills. It is my job, according to God, to be a good help mate for my husband. I am trying to live up to my job description. I am starting a journey into the grocery coupon world and invite you to come with me. I have never used coupons for grocery shopping and as of January 1st 2008 I am diving in. I will be using http://www.thegrocerygame/ , http://www.moneysavingmom.com and the http://www.couponmom.com/ website to guide me on how to save money. I am going to treat this adventure as a part time job and put in the hours necessary to make it work. I am excited and nervous to get started.
