Kroger Shopping

Yeah we are back from vacation. I don’t like to post I am on vacation when I am away from my home, but I am so glad to be back. We went to Eureka Springs Arkansas. It is very interesting little mountain town. I recommend you going to visit some time. There are a ton of things to see and do. We didn’t get to do them all. Also a great workout, since there are so many hills. My calves feel it.

I want to thank Laura from Frugal Follies for joining my Blog!

When I got home I was bummed, since I thought I missed most of the good deals for the Kroger Super Saver event. However, on my last day of vacation and our 12 hour journey home I made my list. I already knew what coupons I had. (I took my printed coupons with me) I normally go to the store on Wednesday or Thursday. Sunday there are too many crowds. I was sure the .49 pasta was going to be all gone and was bracing myself for disappointment when I got to the store. I hit the pasta aisle first and was amazed there was a lot of pasta left.

Here are the 51 items I purchased for $39.73:

I had to buy some juice and snacks for my daughters soccer game and I left a coupon at home for snacks. I don’t really have a good stockpile for snacks yet, so I purchased the Capri Sun and the Keebler crackers. These items were on sale this week. Kroger was out of some of the other items I wanted. In order to make 30 items for the event I used the votives and the Mac and Cheese as filler.

Overall I saved $66.21 or 62% savings and I feel my pantry is stocked.  I can really focus on Free deals and really cheap deals. I will keep you posted on what I find.

Thanks to BlueGrassSavers for helping put my list together this week. She has links to Q’s I hope to get that going sometime soon.
