Weekly Shopping Trip 9/18


I only ended up shopping at Walmart and Kroger this weekend...and yet again had couponing issues.  It's becoming a weekly challenge to use my coupons (and I'm doing it correctly) at my local stores.  The cashiers not understand the policies and just make things difficult...and sometimes it's their computer systems that make things difficult.

For those of you who know me, know I'm getting married next June, which means I'm preparing for my wedding.  Well I wanted to get some Vanity Fair dinner napkins (on sale for $2.49) and use my $0.55/1 coupons -- which will double at Kroger.  Well Kroger's computers wouldn't double them...and the manager there said because it said "face value only"...but what she didn't read correctly was that the manufacturer would "reimburse them face value only" which all coupons say that.  Well Kroger doubles coupons up to $0.60 but mine weren't doubling, so I had to tell the cashier nevermind and that I wanted my coupons back and that I would try at a different Kroger.  Very frustrating!

Okay so here is what I did get!
