Kroger 1/5-1/11

I went to Kroger the other night to get some items and walked out with such a great deal! Needsless to say my cashier was not too happy, because of my coupons. I glad I haven't had her other times, because I usually have more coupons than I had this night:)

I bought three boxes of Kellogg's cereal, and you get a free gallon of milk which we were in need of. The boxes of cereal were on sale for 3/$8.00 ($2.67 a piece). I had (3) $1.00 coupons which made the cereal $1.67 a piece. I ended up paying $5.01 for 3 boxes of cereal and a gallon of milk:) The GE flood lights were clearance to $1.00 a piece which we will be needing soon. The Softsoap's were on sale for $1.00 for which I had (2) $.35 coupons which doubles to $.70 so I ended up paying $.60 for two soaps. The Colgate toothpaste's were on sale for $1.00 I had (3) coupons for $.75 which doubles to $1.50, so I ended up getting $1.50 overage on the toothpaste's. The Crest toothpaste was on sale for $2.50 I had a $.75 coupon with doubles to $1.50 then I had an e-coupon for $1.50, which I got $.50 overage on. The Glade candles were on clearance for $1.74 for which I had a coupon for $1.50 off of two. The Suave deodorants are on sale for $1.00 each and I had (3) $.50 coupons which doubles to $1.00. And the two Buddies soaps were $.99 each and I had (2) coupons for $1.00 off. My total for everything ended up be $8 and some change. This is a lot for $8.00!!!!!

Walgreens Deals - 1/4/09-1/1/10/09

I promised my husband I would take a couple months of shopping off, because I had such a stock pile and a freezer full of food. Well I still have all of that, but I just can't stop bargain shopping. I had to start back up this month, and let me tell you there are such great deals out there this week you just don't want to pass up! Walgreen's has a super deal and a lot of coupons in their advertisement this week. I did six transactions at Walgreen's this week. If you want to see all the Walgreen's deals go to moneysavingmom. I just bought the stuff that was out of pocket free right now.

Trip 1:
4 cans Progresso Chicken Noodle Soup on sale for $5.00

2 packages of Stayfree pads on sale for $6.99 each

Gardiner Frutis Shampoo on sale for $2.99

Electrasol tabs on sale for $3.59

All of these items were a total of $27. and some change by the time my coupons were taken off I only paid $6. and some change.

I had a buy one get one free Stayfree coupon, then in the Walgreen's add there was a $3.00 off for one pack, well since I bought two packs Walgreen's took $6.00 off. So for two packs of pads I paid $.99. The shampoo there was a $2.00 off coupon in the Easysaver book, then I had a $1.00 manufacturer's coupon which means it was FREE. The Progresso Soups I only had a $1.00 coupon, so I paid a total of $4.00 for 4 cans. The Electrasol tabs were on sale for $3.59 and I had a coupon for $2.50 plus you can send in to Walgreen's for $1.50 rebate. I plan on doing that at the end of the month. I had a $2.00/2 coupon for the Stayfree pads, but one of the Walgreen's would not take the coupon. But in my next transaction I went to another Walgreen's and they had no problem taking the coupons.

Trip 2: This was done in two separate transactions, but each transaction had the same items and it came to the same exact price.

2 packages Stayfree pads
2 Hershey's candy bars
1 box of candy for the kids because it was past their bedtime and they were being so good (one box of candy is missing because the kids eating it):)
1 bottle of Gariner Fructis Shampoo

Of course, I had a buy one get one free stayfree coupon, plus a Walgreen's coupon for $3.00 off a package of pads, plus a $2.00 off manufacturer's coupon, I also had a buy on get one free Hershey's coupon then I used a Walgreen's coupon buy 2 Hersey's candy bars for $1.00. Well the Hershey's candy bars ended up being $.25 a piece. Each box of candy for the kids were $1.00 (no coupon):(. The Garnier Fructis shampoos were on sale for $2.99 I had a $2.00 off Walgreen's coupon from the Walgreen's Easysaver book, and a $1.00 manufacturer's coupon which equals FREE! My total for both transactions were $1.54, and the funny thing most of this price is tax :)

I made a couple more trips to Walgreen's yesterday, but I did not take any pictures. Just the same Stayfree pads and more shampoo and conditioner. I can't pass up get pads for 2/$.99 and free shampoo! My cost yesterday was $1.54 for both transactions. Gotta love sales tax! :)

Happy New Year!

Wow! The last couple of months have been soooooo busy. With both of my kids birthday's, Christmas, and New Year's I haven't had any time to do anything it seems! I thought I would share some pictures from my kids birthdays. McKinley turned three November 29 and Alayna was two December 26. I don't know what everyone else's New Years resolution is, but mine is losing weight (I know this is everyone's resolution!), and spending more time reading my Bible.

Pictures above:
