Kroger Shopping, Tom Thumb Shopping

I went shopping on Tuesday this week. Tom Thumb had the better deals this week. It was similar to a mega event at Kroger. I purchased quite a few things and even more was on sale at the store. If they do that again, I may have to shop and make a list first and go back and purchase items with coupon matchups. I haven’t been doing as well at Kroger lately. They are changing the prices on a lot of items. This may be due to the Walmart opening across the street. I have heard they are going to be taking away the double and triple coupons. This has not happened in my area yet. I hope they keep it, since I will shop at Kroger for a coupon under $0.50, since I know it will be doubled.

Here is how I did:

(1) ½ Gallon Milk $1.79
(3) Wheat thins snack sticks $2.00 – 3 $1/1 Q
            -Final $1.00 each
(1) Pull ups $8.99 - $2/1 Huggies Home Mailer
            -Final $6.99
(2) Mission Tortillas $1.69 – Sale $1.00
            -Final $1.00 each
(4) Ronzoni Smart Taste Pasta $1.00 each – 2 $1/2 Q printable
            -Final $0.50 each
(4) Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Pasta $1.00 each – 2 $1/2 Q printable
            -Final $0.50 each
(2) Snuggle Fabric Softner $2.99 – 2 $1/1 Snuggle softner printable
            -Final $1.99 each
(12) Yoplait Yogurt cups $0.50 – 2 $0.40/6 doubled Yoplait cups
            -Final $0.37 each
I spent $27.07 and saved $28.32 on $55.39 retail on groceries this week. 
I couldn’t wait another day to get an additional $1.00 off for the Pull-ups. We were completely out. They are finally carrying the Garden delight pasta, but it was not on sale this time. So I skipped it in hopes it will be available next time. The coupon expires in September. I might have said this last week, but Yoplait is my favorite yogurt. I will buy a bunch when it is on sale.

Here is how I did at Tom Thumb:

(2) Betty Crocker Cake Mix $0.89 each
(8) Chef Boyardee Whole Wheat pasta $0.75 each
(6) Hunts Snack pack pudding $0.69
(2) Cheez –It Colby $1.99 – 2 $0.70/1 Q Colby Cheez – it Printable
            -Final $1.29
 (2) Classico Pasta Sauce $2.99 BOGO - $1/1 Classico Peelie
            -Final $0.99 each
(10) Fuze drinks $0.75 – 5 $1/2 Fuze drinks Q
            -Final $0.29 each
(4) International delight Creamer quart $2.79 - 2 $1/2 Int'l delight quart Q's
           -Final $2.29
(1) Q-Tips $2.49 - $0.30/1 Q-tips Tripled
           -Final $1.59
(2) Cortaid $3.99 - 2 $3/1 Cortaid Q
         -Final $0.99 each
(1) Carl Buddig $2.99 - $1/1 Carl Buddig 12-14 oz Pritable
         - Final $1.99
(1) Odwalla Juice $1.49 - 1 $0.35 Odwalla Juice Q tripled
         -Final $0.44
I spent $34.92 and saved $50.44 on $85.36 retail. I plan on freezing the pudding and sticking plastic spoons in the top. This makes instant popsicles.  There is a coupon in All You magazine for the Whole Wheat Chef; however I didn’t bring it because whole wheat is usually not considered in the sale. This just makes me want to go to the binder system more. I want all my coupons with me when I shop.

My neighbor and I are talking about getting together and putting ours in a binder. Plus I may be able to give her coupons I will not use and she can help me too.
