Let's Go Krogering! 2/3

Here's how I did this week at Kroger - not as good as I've done before, but I bought quite a bit of meat this week and I had to get a few things for a brunch I'm hosting this weekend. So, here we go.

Total Value of Products: $120.22

Total Kroger Savings & Coupons: $51.80

Total OOP: $68.42 (43% Savings)

Saving Highlights:

(3) 4-pk of Cottenelle - $0.99 (used 3 $0.50 coupons printable doubled to $.99 plus a $0.25 cellfire e-coupon) = free plus $0.25 overage!

Pull-ups - on sale for $9.99 (used $2.00 coupon plus a shortcuts e-coupon) = $5.99

5lb. Whole Tyson Chicken on "Manager's Special" = $3.41

Honey Nut Cheerios - on sale for $1.67 (used $0.55 printable coupon plus $0.50 cellfire e-coupon) = $0.67
Check out The New Frugal Mom to see how other's have done this week. Way better than me! I'm new at this.


  1. Thanks for linking, Kim!!

    You did a great job on your deals -- it's all about getting what you need for less!

  2. Kim - This is a dumb question, but I'll ask it anyway - for the Cottenelle - you used three .50 coupons on one purchase?? Thanks again for all of the tips. Before children I would grocery shop and not even pay attention to the prices! Times have certainly changed...

  3. Mary: No problem! I actually bought (3) 4-packs of cottenelle and used (3)$0.50 coupons...1 coupon for each product. Does that make since? Since Kroger doubles coupons up to $ made the toilet paper free!

  4. Hi there. Found you via Moneysavingmom. I live in Louisville too so will definately be back to check your blog. Thanks for the Cottenelle links! I get 3-4 4-packs free a month...gotta love Krogers and free toilet paper! :)

  5. Andrea: Thanks for the comment! Great to hear from a fellow Louisvillian. Let me know if you hear of any other deals! :)
