Another Awesome Kroger Trip!! August 17, 2010

New to Kroger? Go here for How To Do Kroger!

Sometimes when I do really well at a store, and hardly spend any money, Kevin will ask me, "Are the cops coming?" You know....since it appears as though I have robbed the store!! LoL!

This was a great week at Kroger. Here's the extra good part--this sale is going on next week too!

A couple weeks ago, during the P&G sale at Kroger, they never had the Gillette Body Wash or the Gillette Shaving Cream. I got the rain check for both. I went back later in the week and they still didn't have it. I got another rain check. I fulfilled one of them last night and got these:

12 Gillette Body Washes ($1.99 each)
4 Gillette Shaving Cream ($1.47 each)

Coupons used:
(12) $2/1 Gillette Body Wash
(4) $2/1 Gillette Shaving Gel

Paid OOP: Nothing THEY PAID ME: $2.58

These are the other things that I got:

4 bags Bugles
5 bags of Chex Mix
2 Snyder's pretzel rods
2 Bounty Basic Paper Towels

  1. You make me tired just reading this. I don't know how you do it. I guess I'm still in the learning curve. -Your discouraged couponer friend....

  2. A - Start small. Don't try to get everything. Get what you see and if you notice that you missed a deal decide whether it's worth taking another trip to the store. There will always be good deals and it could easily consume you thinking you had to get every good deal out there. Just my thoughts ...

  3. You did great on your savings! That is really fantastic, and oh my impressive!

    I would like to invite you to link up your savings at my Weekly Savings Linky @ Frugality Is Free. It’s a great place to share your savings and meet other frugalistas, who are loving the savings game.

  4. So that's why it took me two weeks to get my share of Gillete body wash! Love me some coupons too. www.daniahswaim.blogspot.com

  5. You go girl!!! I wish I had a kroger near me!!!
