My Grocery Deal(s) of the Week

It dawns on me that I haven’t done this in a while, so last night, I sat and clipped four weeks’ worth of coupons and printed a few off of the internet. When all was said and done, it hit two of my local stores: Kroger and WalMart Neighborhood Market.

With my coupons, I purchased:

1 package of Reach Floss ($.95, I had a $.50 off coupon *clipped from 7/31S*. Kroger doubles coupons = Free floss)
9 boxes of Hamburger Helper ($1 each at Kroger on sale. I had 3 save $.75 on 3 coupons *clipped from 7/17S*, bringing each box down to $.75 each)
4 Totino’s frozen pizzas ($1.25 each, I had a coupon from for $1 off four pizzas = $1/pizza)
4 bottles of Sobe LifeWater (10/$10 sale. I had a Kroger coupon for $1.50 off 4 = $.62 each)
3 cans of Skintimate Shaving Cream ($2.13 each, I had 3 coupons for $.55 off *clipped from 7/24S*. Kroger doubles coupons = $1.10 off each can = $1.03/can)
3 4-packs of Hunts Snack Pack Pudding Snacks ($1 each, I had a coupon for $.45 off 3 *clipped from 8/7S*. Kroger doubles coupons under $.65 = $.90 off 3 = $.70 each)
3 tubes of Colgate Cavity Protection Toothpaste ($.88 each, I had 3 coupons for $.50 off any Colgate toothpaste *clipped from 7/24S*. Kroger doubles my coupons, so it became $1 off each = FREE!)
3 packages of Kotex U Liners (18 count) ($1.24 each at WalMart. I had 3 coupons for $1 off each *clipped from 7/24S*. WalMart only gives face value for coupons, thus, each package was $.24)

Total between two receipts = $21.58 (57% savings)
