Let's Go Krogering 3/10

Man, I spent a lot of money this week, but I feel like I got some pretty good deals. I could kick myself though, because I didn't realize until after I checked out that I only had 29 items for the Mega Deal, when I thought I had 30. So I only got $10 off instead of $15. Make sure you ask the cashier how many items you have before you pay! Anyway, here's how I did:

Value of Products: $156.11

Total OOP: $68.57 (56% Savings)

I received a $1.50/2 Aqua Juice catalina! I hope we like the stuff!

OK. That's it for the highlights. I hope I didn't mess any of it up, I can't find where I wrote everything down and tried to do the coupons from memory! Yikes!

See how other's have done at The New Frugal Mom's blog at her Let's Go Krogering Link-up!


  1. The Oatmeal deal does not produce a catalina, it takes $1.00 off instantly at the register. Check your receipt and make sure this was the case with your order.

  2. Jamie: Thanks! I must've read the blogs wrong! I see it on my receipt now! Thanks!

  3. I did not realize the AquaJuice was part of the Mega Deal. I might have to get in on that. I have several of those BOGO coupons. See, this is why I should check all the blogs before shopping. =)

    I stopped in again yesterday and had to go back in because the cashier forgot to give me my $3 Pillsbury catalina. She was having a hard time (was leaning on the register and really needing a break). No harm no foul, I say.

  4. Anne: I don't think I realized they were part of the mega deal until I got there and I was so excited that I had so many of those B1G1 coupons. The juice was super cheap. I hope my son likes it! Thanks for the comment and I like your blog! Oh, by the way, I almost mixed up on those garlic toast coupons too. It was very confusing...pepperide farm vs. New York something? They look very similar!

  5. Kim - you did a great job stocking up!

    I saw lots of the BOGO printable Q's for the Welch's are still available; team those up with the $0.75/1 and you've got some seriously cheap juice!

    Thanks for sharing and linking!!
