My Kroger Trip

I don’t have a photo.  I had been in high-heeled boots all day long and made our weekly trip to the store in the afternoon.  I was ready to get into more comfy clothes and to get the groceries unloaded.  ;)  Below is our shopping trip to Kroger with the Mega Event deals.  I used many internet printable coupons, making sure that I only had 2 of each kind.  They rang up without any problems.

Extra items I bought for the men’s breakfast at church this Saturday—Gallon of conventional milk, 2 frozen hashbrowns, frozen OJ—total cost $8.23 without tax

4 Kraft shredded cheeses (used two $1/2 coupons)

1 I can’t believe it’s not butter ($1/1 coupon made it free)

Catalina deal--

Bought 3 heat and serve Old El Paso rice dishes at $1.99 each.  Used 3 50ct/1 coupons, making them 99cts each.  Earned $1 OYNO catalina.  Not free, but a decent price for these. 

Total spent $73.22, saved $92.53.  Total percentage saved 55.83%, not too shabby

I had another order for the children’s program at church.

Items bought--

6 heat and serve Old El Paso rice dishes at $1.99 each.  Used six 50ct/1 coupons, making them 99cts each.  Earned $3 OYNO catalina.  It looks like two 50ct Cellfire coupons came off of that order too!

4 LaVictoria Salsas (free after $4/2 coupons)

1 Rotel (free after 30ct coupon was doubled)

5 Quaker Rice Snacks (free after 75ct/1 coupons)

5 Oscar Mayer Hot Dogs

1 I can’t believe it’s not butter ($1/1 coupon made it free)

5 solo cups (1 $1/1 coupon and four 75ct/1 coupons)

4 Ronzoni pastas (four 75ct/1 coupons)

5 hot dog buns (on sale for 88cts each)

$10 came off with the Mega Event deal. 

Total spent, $32.90 tax exempt.  Total saved $62.05. Total percentage saved—65.35%  Since this will cover the meal tomorrow night, a pasta meal in the future, and part of a taco night on another night for over 30 kids, I’m pretty pleased!

  1. I tried to use the SOBE B1G1 at the farragut kroger and they refused it saying they didnt accept "free internet coupons" Have you had any issues with this?

    Thanks!

  2. They didn't give me any problems with this coupon. I understood the new rules to be for FREE coupons, and I never thought that BOGO might be included. I'll keep you posted as I learn more.
