      I 6 cans of evaporated milk, a holiday necessity, for FREE ($.50/2, 3 of them), added to the 4 packages of Kotex with 2 $2/2 coupons, bringing me to a total of 10 items, which I paid $4 for. They then gave me the $5 off, so I got paid to take all that home! I LOVE YOU JENNY!

      I was very impressed with my kroger maega event. I got great deal because I use most everything. i would love to stock up but my coupon options run out..Green giant sent me $1.00(2) and .50(2) So I got 4 can of Lesuer sweet peas for free! They our favorite, and the Kotex is my brand. Anyway I saved $78 on my total bill, with large packages of tp,pt,and water. Any ideas of how I could get more bumble bee coupons? I need a zip.

      I was very impressed with the Kroger Mega Event this time around. I spent only $43.40 and left with $269.54 worth of groceries. And, I still have to find the Cheez-It deal because both stores I went to were sold out.

      • CaroleL

        When the stores are out of an item I ask for a rain check. Next time try that. It won’t hurt to ask!

    • I am still learning…but how do you get these “free” items? Sorry…there wasn’t anything to click, and I just am not sure how! Thanks for all your help in slashing our grocery budget!! xoxo

      • Ashley

        Go to the Store’s weekly add and it will be listed with the coupon matchups that make it free.

    • Liz

      It took a lot of work but I managed to save over 63% at kroger this week! 76 items for $85! Not as good as others but better than the people in my check out lane! The only thing that didnt work for me was the cheese-it coupon- it was for a bigger package.

    • Amanda

      I got a really good deal on the Jimmy Dean breakfast items at Publix. They are priced at 2.00 per box. I combined a Target Web coupon for -$1.00 off any Jimmy Dean breakfast item with a Manufacturer’s coupon for -.75 cents off . So I paid .25 cents per box.

    • kathy

      I love, love, love this post! Is it a regular? Keep it up! I went to Kroger and bought $86.97 worth of groceries for $6.51!

    • Sherry

      I went to Kroger this past week for their mega event and I had a MEGA savings event in my wallet. Total Bill 293.84 Paid $75.06 with $8.00 return trip coupons. Yippee!!

    • Sherry M

      LOVE this listing! I hope it will be a regular weekly listing! I had missed the Chef Michael dog food on the Bi-lo list earlier. After seeing it listed here I went shopping. I bought 6 bags of Chef Michael’s (9 lbs total) and a pack of Angel Soft. Total before sales price – $26.73, total after sales prices – $22.02, TOTAL AFTER COUPONS – $3.01!! I even shocked the cashier! My dog even loves my coupon shopping!

    • jennifer

      Thank you so much Jenny for all of your hard work!!!! Your site saves me so much $$$$!! I went to publix today, got 9 of the jimmy dean breakfast bowls, and of course their brand pnut butter. Only paid 32 CENT!! That was using target q’s and man Q’s and a 4 off of 20 rite aid!!

    • Michelle

      Has this ended? I’m a little confused about the $1 or less grocery deals. Please clarify. BTW, I love this site!!!
