We all have a great deal that we figure out or a incredible buy that we just long to stand in the street and tell every person.  For me I have problems with finding people who want to hear… we’ll now we have a place to share.

My “steal” this week came out of our need for milk.  I ran into Kroger really fast just to grab Milk.  This is what we got:

1 Gallon on Milk $3.69
1 large Box of Cheerios $3.99
(3) 4 pks of Cottonelle $1

I had coupons making the Cheerios and Cottonelle free, but… I also had e coupons loaded on my Kroger card for both the Cheerios and the Cottonelle so I made money to buy them!!!

I left paying $2.99 for the 5 items including tax, less than the normal cost of the milk!

Do you have that one something that you long to share?  Write about it on your blog and add your link below.  Link back in your post so that your visitors can see other great steals. Any links not going to your deal will be deleted.

Seeing what others are finding is always an encouragement to discover our own deals.  Come back Friday and ad a link to your savings finals for the week to help encourage us even more.

Don’t have a blog?  Leave a comment telling us about your deal.

      Thanks for the Publix help. I’m so excited, I spent $16.42 and saved $41.13!! Usually I only end up around 50% but not this week. The Campbells soup was awesome, I was waiting for a deal like that! Now I just have to find somewhere to put it all. :)

      I really enjoy seeing the cashier’s face when they figure out that they just paid you to buy something. Last Sunday I took advantage of the L’Oreal wrinkle cream deal at CVS. With coupons I think I paid a little over $10 and she handed me $11.99 in ECB. She just stared at me trying to figure it out. When I explained the system she was amazed and asked for your website!

    • I hear what you said.. When you get a great deal, you want to just tell everyone and their mothers about your deals. I am the same way!!

      That is a great deal!!

      My great deal was last week at Kroger when they had buy 15 and get $3 off. I can’t type the whole things from my receipts but overall I saved 74% at Kroger.

      3 – Gold fish
      4 – Kotex
      8 – Campbell Soup
      13 – Old El Paso Taco seasoning
      2 – Old El Paso Taco Shells
      2 – Suave Shampoo

      OOP $12.70 and Save $32.72

      That was the best deal I have done so far!
