Since this week is Mega Event Week at Kroger, I stocked up on some pantry and donation items. And CHEESE! I was so excited when I realized that the cheese on sale was for the 1 lb bags of Kraft shredded! $2.79 a bag and after the Kraft Catalina $5 OYNO each bag was only $1.79 each. I split up my transactions so I could use the $5 in the same shopping trip. Because the Kraft cheese was only $2.79 if it was part of the mega deal I also included in that transaction 3 other participating products (and I had 2 $1 off of 2 Kraft cheese coupons! Sweetened the deal even more!).
Last night was the first time my husband has gone grocery shopping with me since I started couponing. I wanted him to see how cool it is to see the price go down down down. He wasn’t disappointed.
Last night totals at Kroger:
5 bags of 1 lb Kraft cheese
2 Gogurt Yogurts
1 Bumblebee tuna
Total Due $16.03
Total Saved $23.29
(I just now realized that she didn’t scan my $1/2 Gogurt Yogurts. Hmmm, that’s unfortunate!)
6 Green Giant Steamers Frozen Veggies
6 Hamburger Helpers (GREAT donation item)
4 Crescent Rolls
4 Cinammon Rolls
6 Bumble Bee Tuna
1 California Pizza Kitchen Pizza
2 Old El Paso Taco Shells
1 Wanchai Ferry Frozen Entree
1 Capri Sun
Value pack of Pork Ribs
small trash bags for Colin’s office
Total Due $34.11
Total Saved $54.36
Everything pictured above:
I’d call that a success!
Later today I will go to Randalls to stock up on some meat and fresh fruits and veggies.

Ooh…good deals! We use so much cheese, so I get excited about good prices too..ha! Too bad we don't have a Kroger.
We use a LOT of cheese. The bags of shredded also have a really long good through date so I always stock up when the price is low.

The week I started couponing was a mega sale, I think the great savings that week was what convinced me to stick with it!
