I have no fun savings to share with you this week.  I had hoped that my husband would go shopping while I was out of town, but came home to find that I am truly needed.  He hadn’t even made it out for milk, but had switched to water and dry cereal for breakfast.  Don’t worry I was only gone for a couple days so the suffering wasn’t too bad.  I think they also ordered Pizza so odds are they were hoping I would never come home…

We ran out really fast today just for milk and I will say I was thrilled to find some on markdown for $1.99 a gallon.  It expires in 4 days but we can devour a gallon or two in that time!

I have big plans already to hit Kroger next week. You will too when you see the new ad (I should have it up around 8:30 am tomorrow)!!  I’m off to finish those deals, so now it’s your turn to share.

How was your savings this week?  Leave a comment or a link to your savings post.

      Jenny, you’ve already got me excited about the Kroger deals this week! I can’t wait to find out what they are!

    • Can’t wait to see the new Kroger ad! Thanks so much for all you do and for the link up!

      if i have a rain check and a coupon for an out of stock item and  if the store doesnt restock it before the coupon expires is the coupon still good?   ANYONE?

      • What store is it?  It usually depends on the manager of the store.  My CVS has allowed me to use an expired coupon within a month of expiration since they did not have the item in stock.

          kroger, they are getting sooo picky.  i guess i shouldnt have assumed they would still be good.  thanks!

      My Kroger cycle is a week ahead of your cycle down south, and I just had a very happy shopping trip! :)

    • Where did you find milk in Columbia/Lexington for $1.99!?! I always end up paying around $3.50!

      I went in to my cvs this afternoon and they  had re-stocked the Glade Sense and Spray starter kits.  I had a red box coupon for $2 off one that popped last week some time.  I had 4 ($4) off coupons.  So I purchased 4.  I also bought two bags of 12.6oz m&m as I had cvs coupons for $1 off each and a mq for $1.50 off 2 (from All You mag).  So, total cost for 4 sense and spray and 2 bags of 12.4oz mms $25.00.  I saved $17.50 in mq and $4.00 in CVS qs and got $4.00 ECB back!  So cool!
