Weekly Shopping Trip

So this week I avoided Walgreens, because for me there were not any good deals that benefited me and my family.  But, I did go to Kroger and Walmart...and then forgot to buy some groceries, so now I will be going back later this afternoon.

Stop #1: Kroger ($38.88 saved 41%)

Sweet Corn - 4/$1.33
Eggs - $0.99 (on sale -- Kroger brand)
Milk - $1.67 (on sale -- Kroger brand)
Whipped Cream cheese $1.99 (I only buy whipped and it wasn't on sale this week :( )
(2) Cans of Salmon $2.69 each
(4) Milkyway bars @ $0.50 each
    Used (2) $0.50/2 coupons --> which doubled -->  so 4 FREE
Butterfinger and Babyruth bars @ $0.789 each
    Used $0.50/2 coupon --> which doubled --> so $0.58 total
(2) 1lb. Oscar Mayer lunchmeat $2.69 each (when you buy 10 participating items)
    Used $1/2 coupon --> paid $2.19 each (pretty good deal for 1lb. bag of turkey lunchmeat!)
(2) Oscar Mayer 98% Fat Free Hot dogs $2.69 each (when you buy 10 participating items)
    Used $1/2 coupon --> paid $2.19 each (usually $3 for a pack at Walmart)
Cottenelle Toilet Paper $5.69 (when you buy 10 participating items)
    Used $1/1 Kroger coupon --> paid $4.69 (12 double rolls --> $0.39/roll)
(5) Gatorade 32oz $0.69 (when you buy 10 participating items)

I had some extra hot dog and lunchmeat coupons that expired today, so I acted as a coupon fairy and left them for someone else.  I hope someone takes advantage of the coupons!

Stop #2: Walmart ($20.25 saved 42.9%)

Walmart Cheddar Cheese (8cups) $7.76
Eye drops $0.97
Sara Lee Bagels $2.28
(2) Suave Body Washes $1.93 each
    Used (2) FREE product coupons for Suave body wash --> so FREE
(1) Suave Dry Shampoo $2.74
    Used a FREE product coupon for Suave (see previous post here) --> so FREE
(2) Diet V8 Splash $1.98
    Used $1/2 coupn --> $1.48 each
(2) UP2U Gum $1.28
    Used (2) $1/1 coupons --> $0.28 each
(2) Tony's Pizza  $2.48 each
    Used $1/2 coupon found on the Tony's box --> $1.98 each
Philadelphia Cooking Creme $2.48 (sells for $2.99 at Kroger)
    Used $1/1 coupon --> $1.48

Now the cheese I bought was pretty expensive BUT for the 2cup bag it was $2.08 (which would make 4 bags $8.32) and for the 4cup bag it was $4.18 (which would make 2 bags $8.36) so I saved $0.60.

When I go back this afternoon I still have to buy bread, peanut butter, another cooking creme, and some jalapenos...so I'm guessing another $10 and I only have 1 coupon to use for all of that :(  better luck next time!
