I had big plans of getting to the store today… I didn’t succeed though.  So my trip is planned and coupons are cut for a trip tomorrow.  We’ve been having a fun week of eating out of pantry; working through some of those things you buy and think you’ll eat and then never do.  My sweet kids have taken the week very well with our strange dinners and unique lunches.

We did grab a few things while we were at Kroger this past Sunday though.  Mostly stuck to the mega event items with a few other little deals thrown in (like the 50¢ 2 Liters).

Kroger:
Total before sales and coupons: $56.91
Total spent: $29.10
Total Saved: $27.81 or 48%

How did you do this week?  Leave a comment or a link to your savings post.

      Doesn’t seem Harris Teeter SuperDoubles are very well represented so I thought I’d share my 2 trips. I was excited about what I got and how little I paid.
      Great 1st SD trip. $121.69 groceries and paid $4.15 oop. Hope you all saved the evic’s to your card for the Free Garlic Jack’s Barbecue sauce and the Free Sizzling Salad Dressing Kit. Wanted to try both so now I can and for free. Heads up though even though they were saved to my card they didn’t come off in my ZVR total. I had to go to Customer Service and get reimbursed. I got 6 free bottles of KC Masterpiece Barbecue sauce, Free Chinet Lunch and Desert plates, 2 Free Barilla Blue Box Pastas, 2 Free Veet Wax Strips, 2 Free Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Clothes, Free Smart Balance Milk, $1 Tom’s of Maine Mouthwash and Toothpaste, 2 $.67 Jack Daniels Barbecue Sauces (I’m stocked on BQ sauce now LOL), 2 Always Infinity 14 ct for $1.99 and 1 for $.99 I had a raincheck for them at $3.99 – $1 cpn – $1 evic on one, got $5 off Metamucil $2 cpn I got with a free sample dbled and $1 saved evic cpn, Olay Regenerist Micro Sculpting Cream raincheck for $19.99 – $3 cpn – $3 evic cpn = $13.99, Front Porch Ice Cream Blackberry Crumble (can’t wait to try it). They were out of Smart Balance Spreadable Butter B1G1 but I got a raincheck and asked when they would get a truck and she called back and  they said they had just restocked it but I had already reached my 20 coupon limit for the day so hopefully they will have it when I go back tomorrow plus I have the raincheck for future use. I also used a $10 off $50 recycle bank coupon. My store always scans it first so it takes the $10 off before coupons. Plus I had a $20 credit from a new prescription at the pharmacy, it was for my dog and cost me $4.95 and they gave me $20. I love HT! 

      Second SD trip. I’m excited and need to share $119.56 ended up coming up as $2.40 credit! However they made me buy something or lose the $2.40. When this happened in the past a couple of times I don’t think the cashier noticed it was a credit and just credited my Visa but this time they said I had to buy something. Not sure if I like the way things processed or not because this trip included a $20 credit on my vic card from the pharmacy for a new prescription and what happens it takes the $20 off if you spend over $20 BEFORE coupons. I think in this case I would have preferred the coupons be taken off first and if I didn’t reach the $20 or more spend threshold then my $20 credit would stay on my card. Just wanted to let everyone know in case anyone has a Pharmacy credit on their account.
      They restocked the Smart Balance spreadable butter in my store that they didn’t have yesterday so I got 4 free Smart Balance Spreadable butters, 3 using $1 coupons, and I had a coupon for a free one.I also got 3 Barilla Microwavable Pasta Meals $3.29 – $1.50 = $.29 and I had one for lunch. It’s just pasta and sauce. Not bad for $.29 but I would never pay $3.29 for one. Just my opinion.Also got 2 more free Chinet plates, 2 more free KC Masterpiece bbq sauces, the bounty napkins for $.35, Barber Chicken, and Simply potatoes deals.
      But I really wanted to point out a couple deals that may not be obvious.Yesterday I saved to my vic card the ecoupons FREE Garland Jack’s Barbecue sauce ($2.49 in my store) and FREE Sizzling Salads ($3.99 in my store). This morning they also had 2 new ecoupons B1G1 Garland Jack’s Barbecue Sauce and B1G1 Sizzling Salads. Since I haven’t ever had either I decided to buy 2 of each and see what happened with the ecoupons. Plus the Sizzling Salads had a peelie on them for $1 off. What happened was all 4 ecoupons (B1G1 and Free) came off and the $1 peelies doubled so I got all 4 items for free plus $4 profit!2 Hansen’s Soda 6 pack cans $2.99 each – $1 cpn Facebook = $.99 I love the diet root beer!Klondike bars are on evic special limit 2 for $1.77 – $1/2 cpn from Facebook = $.77 each.8 Yoplait Yogurt evic 10/$4 or $.40 each – $.60/8 cpn – $.40 evic cpn = $.20 each plus savings star $.40 deposit making them $.15 each.Brawny 8 roll Paper Towels $4.77 evic spc. – $1 cpn Facebook = $2.77Before I went to HT I went to Bi-Lo this morning. I’m lucky in that they are across the street from on another. Here’s what happened. Just must be my lucky day.$49.38 before savings $6.22 incl tax after savings.5 All Mighty Pacs 24 cnt (I love these detergent packs/pods not bottles to mess with)$2.99 each – $1 cpn = $1.99 each – $1 any laundry item bi-lo cpn I got in the mail = $8.95 for 5.2 Millstone 12 oz. Ground Coffee’s $6.99 each rain check for B1G1 – 2/$1.50 cpns – $1 off any coffee bi-lo cpn I got in the mail. Should have been $2.99 for both but when I got home the cashier took off $13.98 instead of just $6.99 so I got both coffees free plus $1 profit. I wondered why my oop ended up being only $6.22 but I didn’t check my receipt until I got home since I wanted to get to HT.I know this long but I’m just so excited! Hope everyone is getting great deals! Thanks so much Jenny I could not do this without this site!
