My Super Kroger Savings!

Saturday was not a great day for me healthwise, but I was determined to take advantage of some great sales that Kroger was having. I went through my coupons, matched them to the sales and pulled out my soon to expire free coupons, as well as the Digiorno free pizza coupons for my upcoming house party!
Kroger was out of several items I wanted, but I was more than happy to take what I got! Thanks to a wonderful heads up, I signed up for Recycle Bank and I chose to cash out with Coke coupons. My mom cashed out with both Coke and Simply juice coupons and promptly handed them to me. The 6 pk plastic 1/2 liter Coke products were on sale for $2 per 6pk(limit 5)! I was thrilled to be able to pick up soft drinks for $1 per pack after coupon!! The small bottles of the Simply juices were on sale for $1 each, so I was able to get them FREE!
I had coupons for many of the things I purchased, as well as the Shortcuts and Cellfire coupons that were loaded on my card. When we checked out, the total before coupons was $161.99. My hubby almost passed out! I told him to wait for the final total, and when all was said and done, we got out of Kroger paying $34.79. Hubby was thrilled, and has bragged to anyone who would listen about how I saved us over $127 on our grocery bill!
I just looked online to realize the sale continues another week! Guess who is planning a return trip!

I hear stuff like this and I think I've gotta start getting the newspaper!!!! I attempted my first printout coupon and Walmart would not accept it b/c it wouldn't scan -

Welcome to SITS! We're glad you joined :-)
