I was going by Kroger to see if I could score the CHEAP DIAL HANDSOAP for .18¢ after my 1 lonely little 35cents coupon and found they were having a SIDEWALK sale with lots of goodies on the sidewalk. I was lucky and found a COMPOSITION book reg. $1.45 for 1/2 off or .73¢ and had a 50cents coupon that I got in the mail this week! ***I had been calling some companies and asking for coupons to help me on my challenge you see......... and I got "lucky" on a few! :) so that started me off with a smile.......... here's what else I bought............ 4 boxes of Minute Maid Italian Ice using 50cents coupon / Doubled or 9cents a box
SUAVE were part of the buy 10 get $5 off promo....... I got 5 suave as they were only 89cents after the 50cents savings per bottle on this trip. I also bought this gain $2.09 with $1 off (50cents doubled) its the great big bottle , not the small ones like I have been picking up other places.
Now ............... this is the REST of the LOOT............the deals were fabulous, those yellow boxes are FRENCH ONION SOUP MIX reg. $6.95 a box, for $1!!!!!!!!!!! those Campbells soup were marked down to 67 cents a can and I had coupon for that too! LOTS TO BE HAD...........yea and the beach balls were a whole 25cents! GLUE STICKS? SCORE! regularly $1.35 each for 21cents, I was a tad bit disappointed that I didn't also have a coupon for it , cuz my coupon specified TWIN PACK ..... but I still got them as the 21cents spent counted against a DOUBLE cost or $2.70 each retail in the CHALLENGE so I was happy with that! I have another $2.45 to spend and two days to see how far I can make it go WISH ME LUCK! my totals are climbing ! :)
TOTAL COST BEFORE DISCOUNTS AND COUPONS ........... $82.86 for a total of 44 items sold
COUPONS AND DISCOUNTS $55.65
charged on my credit card $27.21
will get back $5 gas card + have some sales towards my $10 kelloggs rebate too....... I don't usually care about PERCENTAGE what I care about IS HOW MUCH I SPEND............. this is MY GROCERIES towards this upcoming week to add to my stockpiles and I have about $10 more dollars to spend in Groceries to keep to my $40 week spending budget!
My stockpiles are WELL STOCKED , you see I really don't need any MEAT or VEGGIES right at the moment and not any DRINKS or well, really? I don't "need" anything except butter and eggs :)
