Empty Pockets Never Held Anyone Back. Only Empty Heads And Empty Hearts Can Do That.
I think I did pretty well today.
I purchased from Kroger and Meijers...are you ready for this...
6 bottles of Pantene (3 shampoo and 3 conditioner)after coupons $11.94 or $1.99 a piece (used 3 $3/2 coupons) NORMAL PRICE: $4.14 a piece
Luvs Mega Pack $9.99 NORMAL PRICE: $11.79
Infinity Pads after coupons $2.19 (loaded $2 coupon from P&G Saver to Kroger Card and coupon for $1) NORMAL PRICE: $5.19
4 Jello Pudding (fridge type) after coupons $5.80 or 1.45 pack (used 4 $0.55 coupons) NORMAL PRICE: $2.64 a piece
I did get another $5.00 off my bill as Kroger had a deal that if you bought 25 dollars in P&G items you got $5.00 off...that happened with the diapers, shampoo, and pads.
Total came to $26.42 with tax.
2 Special K Bars after coupons $4.00 or $2.00 a piece (used $1 off 2 coupon) NORMAL PRICE: $3.09
6 boxes of Kleenex after coupons $5.50 or $0.92 a piece (used two $0.50 coupons which doubled to $1.00...hence $2.00 off) NORMAL PRICE: $1.99 a piece
3 Electrasol Gelpacs after coupons $1.50 or $0.50 a piece (used three $2.50 coupons) NORMAL PRICE: $4.49
3 boxes of Kelloggs Cereal, after coupons $3.00 or $1.00 a piece (used three $1.00 coupons) NORMAL PRICE: $3.14 a piece
3 jars Smuckers Jam, after coupons $1.65 or $.55 a piece (used three $0.35 coupons that doubled to $0.75..hence $2.25 off) NORMAL PRICE: $2.75 a piece.
Came to $16.59 with tax
TOTAL SPENT ON ALL MY STUFF: $43.01
If I had bought all of it at full price it would have been.......DRUUUUMMMMMMMROOLLLLLLLLL........$101.62..not including tax
I SAVED $58.61
Thank God for coupons.
It pays to do your homework...I LOVE MY NEW JOB (now that I lost my old one)..this one makes me feel smart.
A big thanks to Andrea at Mommysnacks.net, without her I would not be able to figure all this out and to the many people who save their Sunday paper inserts for me or coupons...especially my lovely and much loved grandmother!!
