Kroger Trip #2

Okay so the Kroger I went to last night was out of a couple of the deals I needed (chili for teens & small group this week). So I hit up the other Kroger. A lot of you have asked about my trip last night. I'm going to list what I bought with the Mega Event deal and then I'll list the non deals items. If I don't have a coupon for something, I'll note that too. There's a lady that blogs, who put together a scenario for those of you who don't clip coupons. You can find the printable coupons online and still benefit from this Mega Event at Kroger. The prices are after the mega event $10 off but NOT including coupons. Okay here goes:

The price listed is the price after the mega purchase 10 deal. It basically takes 50 cents off of every item that is included in that deal.

Okay so for all of that the total started at $262, then went down when he scanned my Kroger Card and stopped at $89 when he scanned all of my coupons. I bought 93 items total. 73 items qualified for the buy 10, get $5 off. I miscalculated and bought 3 more items than I needed. However, they were out of some of the stuff I wanted. So I made a second trip to the Rockwall Kroger this morning and here's what I did there. OOOOHHH-after my trip last night, a bunch of catalinas printed out. They look like receipts but they're coupons. I got a $2.50 off my next purchase at Kroger (FREE MONEY) and a bunch of coupons.

Trip #2
1 Pillsbury Simply Refrigerated Cookie Dough $1.99
2 Pillsbury Refrigerated Cookie Dough $1.99
5 Cans of Delmonte Tomatoes $0.50

1 Shoulder Roast $1.99/lb
1 Package of Reese's Peanut Butter Sticks-closeout $1.25 (coupon that tripled)
1 container of homemade peanut butter (can you tell Levi & the kids went with me)

24 items total was $22.18 (started at $89)

So...Levi's comment was, "You did better than the Dollar Tree." If I can help at all please let me know. This is my spend $35-40 per week at the grocery store. I know that's a little lofty. My friend told me that at the beginning of couponing, you spend the same amount but you get A LOT more groceries...which I did! Then, you stock pile and you get a lot of things free or have overages which help pay for the things you don't have coupons for (produce, meats, etc.). We'll see and don't worry, I will keep you posted:)
