Friday Finals

I also heard the dreaded news that as of 09/14/11 Kroger will no longer be doubling and tripling coupons. Most of the coupons I use are not doubled, but I know there will be a few products I will no longer purchase if they do not lower the price on these items. Plus I love getting things for free, this may not happen as frequently as it did before.

I went shopping at Kroger on 09/02/11 since I won $0.50 off on Cellfire for logging in and going to their site on Thursday. The coupon had to be used before the end of the weekend. We were going out of town last weekend and I wanted this trip to count towards this weeks totals. I didn't take a pic, but they pictured in my finals at the end.

(4) Mom’s Cereals $1.50 each
(1) Watch battery $1.59
(1) Loaf of bread Discount Rack $1.00
(3) Minute Maid Frozen treats $1.00 - $.50/1 coupon doubled RP 07/24/11
            -Final FREE

I spent $8.18 and saved $10.83 on $19.01 worth of products retail. I thought I had a coupon for the watch battery, but it had expired. I realized this right before I handed it to the cashier. I could have paid only $0.59, since I had a $1/1 coupon. There were only 3 Minute Maids left and I had four coupons. I did take them all. I usually never buy more than four of an item. It doesn’t fit my budget and four will usually make us through to the next sale.

 CVS 09/06/11

(1) Milkyway Bar $1.19
(1) Carefree Pantyliners 20 count
(2) Huggies Pull ups $7.99 each

I spent $18.87 and saved $13.29 on $32.16 worth of merchandise. I really shouldn’t have purchased the Physicians formula, but I really like this makeup. I was a small splurge for me. This one purchase was over my toiletries limit for the week. I usually allow $5.00 for healthcare and beauty needs.

I went back to Kroger for a few items this week 09/08/11

2.09lbs Black Grapes @ 1/lbs - $2.09

            -Final $0.55

I spent $21.60 and saved $12.27 on $33.87 worth of groceries. My actual savings is higher since the pepperoni was much higher. I just listed the discounted price.

I went to Sprouts since they had great deals on bulk items this week 09/08/11

0.92 lbs Granola @ $1.99/lb - $1.83
0.91 lbs Rolled Oats @ $0.69/lb - $0.63

0.83 lbs Sunflower seeds @ $1.99/lb - $1.65

(2) Eggs dozen $1.50 each - $0.55/2 dozen eggs Facebook Coupon
            -Final $1.23 each

I spent $7.90 and saved $0.55 plus more. The bulk bin items do not list their regular price. I am saving anywhere from $0.40 - $0.50 on each item.

I went Freebie shopping at Target today 09/09/11 this made me feel a little better.

(4) Degree Deodorants $0.97 - $1/1 Degree Deodorant RP 08/28/11
            -Final FREE
(2) Simply Orange $0.73 – $1/1 Simply Orange Coupon Printable NLA

           -Final FREE
(2) Simply Lemonade $0.73 - $1/1 Simply Lemonage Coupon Printable NLA
          -Final FREE

So I spent $0.00 and saved $8.00 on $6.92 retail worth of product.The Simply Orange was marked $1.02 on the shelf, however it rang up at $0.73 each. She took my coupon with the overage. So I made more money than I thought because she pushed the coupon through. I purchased some shorts and shoes for my daughter not pictured. The extra went towards that purchase. I was close to budget this week and I didn’t want to go over.

This week I spent $56.55 and saved $44.94. Not the best savings, but it is still savings.

  1. This girl is admiring your bulks - we don't have shop here that offers decent bulks!

  2. Sprouts is growing and it is in several states. It has the best bulk section and there is always great sales. I try to allow myself about $10.00 a week there. If it is a really good sale I will get more.

  3. I don't know of anywhere that has the bulks around here either! VEry nice! Thanks for linking up and for the link up!

  4. I wish we had bulk bins here...great deals!

  5. Yes I try to buy healthy and organic whenever I can. It is hard to do on a budget as tight as mine in the Dallas market. But I can stock up when they have great sales.

  6. How awesome! These seem like some great deals!
