Let’s go Krogering! Saved 82% and 71%

sunny d If you haven’t made it into Kroger for the latest Mega Event Sale yet, I suggest that you try to find time this week.  I decided I wanted a little time to shop today and made a quick trip.  I did two transactions—1 for us and 1 for the church.  Below are some details:

Our transaction, saved 82.38%

FREE--16 boxes Ronzoni pasta, 1 Better than Oats, 1 Suave hairspray, 2 Boulder potato chips. Also bought 4 more bags of Boulder chips, 2 Silk almond milk, 2 Mom's Best cereal, 2 Freschetta pizzas, 2 tins of almonds and ripe bananas. Spent $14. 95 total.  I’ll be donating the Ronzoni to the church, and I have no idea why I didn’t put it on the church’s transaction instead of ours.  I’m sure that Uncle Sam will be happy that I paid some extra unnecessary tax.  Oh well!

Church’s transaction, saved 71.13%

FREE—22 Propel Fitness Waters, 2 Boulder Natural Chips.  Also bought 4 Ragu no sugar added sauces, 5 Kroger cheeses (I had a $1.50 off $7 dairy coupon and a 50cts/2 Kroger cheese coupon, which made this a pretty good deal), 4 Mott’s Apple Juices, 2 Sunny D, 4 more bags of Boulder chips, 1 Country Time lemonade mix (I had a 55ct/1 coupon and they were on sale for $2).   The Ragu, cheese, and apple juice will be used for Wednesday’s meal for the kids.  The waters, chips, and Sunny D will go to the youth group’s mission trip this summer.  The lemonade mix will be added to the stockpile for VBS.  Spent a total of $28.90.

To learn more about the coupons that I used, visit the weekly matchup for Kroger at www.southernsavers.com .  Our local store was completely out of all of the Nivea body washes and they didn’t seem hopeful about getting anymore in anytime soon.  If I am by another Kroger I might stop in to see if I can get some of them for the church food pantry.
