50th Post Give-a-way!

I can't believe I'm already on my 50th post! Yay! It's so exciting.

In honor of my 50th post, I would like to do a give-a-way. I went through a few months worth of newspaper inserts and cut out all the pet coupons. I had to give the doggie ones to my sis and sis-in-law, but I saved most of the kitty ones.

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:
