Weekly Grocery Shopping Trip

Okay, so this was my monthly shopping trip out of town so I was able to hit CVS as well this week.  I'm not going to show you all of my groceries bc I didn't get any good deals on my food food that I bought at Kroger, so I'll just show you the good stuff from Kroger.  I also was able to tell 2 sets of people at Kroger about my couponing and I think I inspired one of the couples.  So I hope that was the little push they needed.  I also met some fellow couponers today at CVS, Walgreens, and Kroger...but my most interesting encounter was at Kroger.  I met these 2 ladies who were buying 50 Crest toothpastes...because they had 50 coupons for it...and they were all $0.50 coupons which doubled to $1 making each toothpaste bottle free.  It was interesting to listen to them tell me how they got all of their 50 toothpaste coupons.  Some of the ways they got them was from fellow Church members, from the nursing homes, from schools, from neighbors, and from "dumpster diving".  Now they informed me that they only got in the recycle bins so they weren't actually getting into the trash.  So how far will you go?
