Kroger Trip 7/17
Keep in mind that I do my necessity shopping at Kroger, meaning that I will buy things there that are needed even if they aren't on sale or I don't have Qs for them b/c sometimes you just can't get around it, so you will see that my Kroger trips are a lot bigger than at other places. For example, when I go to Meijer I pretty much only go for certain things that are on sale and match my Qs.
What I bought and how I saved:
*When you see "overage" that means that I got an item free and actually made money for buying it, which then applied as a discount to the rest of my order. This is why the mega sale is magic!
2 Chex Mix @ 1.99 - used .50/2 MFQ (doubles to $1) and a .50/1 Shortcuts Q = $1.24 ea.
2 Sargento sliced cheese @ 1.99 - used .40/1 MFQs (dbls to .80) = $1.19 ea.
2 Sargento shredded chz @ 1.99 - used .40/1 MFQs (dbls to .80) = $1.19 ea.
1 Playtex rubber gloves @ 1.00 - used $1/1 MFQ = FREE + .50 overage
2 Glade oil tin candles @ 2.70 - used $1.50/1 MFQs found under lids = $1.20 ea.
1 Glade oil tin refill @ 2.79 - used free wyb Glade candle MFQ = FREE
3 Kroger 3 minute pizzas @ $1.00 ea.
2 Hunt's pudding 12 pk. @ $1.99 ea.

1 Febreze fabric deoderizor @ 4.49 (closeout price) - used $1/1 P&G eSaver Q = $3.49

1 24 oz. Kroger cottage chz @$1.77
2 Chocoloate Silk soy milks @ 2.99 - $2/1 MFQs (purchased on eBay) = .99 ea.

4 Nectarines @ 1.48/lb. = $2.63

1 Bag Dole salad @ .98
1 Pack Lance pnut butter crackrs @ $2.62
- $10.00 (I bought 20 items that were part of the Mega Sale, so I got $5 off for each 10)
Total before sales and Qs = $119.53
MF coupon savings = $37.87
Kroger plus & promo savings = $23.06
Total out of pocket = $58.60
Total savings = $60.93 aka 51%!!
This wasn't a perfect trip b/c I forgot my Kraft coupon at home and I was expecting a P&G eSaver Q on the batteries, but I got an unexpected one on the Febreze ( I always forget about those loadable Qs after a while), so that kind of made up for that. I also forgot to buy grapes...
But I'm not too upset b/c my goal is to save more than I spend, and I did it!
