I only had a little to spend, in fact, I came so close to what I had that I came home with .26 left in my pocket!
The store (Kroger) is having the special of when you buy 10 of the certain products you get an additional $5 off your grocery bill. I did this twice today (plus bought 1 1/2 gallons of milk)
I used coupons on every item (except the milk) I am going to list the sale price, then the price minus the .50 for the bonus, and then the price after coupons. My store doubles coupon up to $1 in value, meaning a .50 coupon is $1 off, coupons over that are taken up to the $1.
4-Brown N' Serve sausage, on sale for $1.39 making them .89 each, I used 4-.35 coupons making them just .19 each!
2-Tombstone Pizzas, on sale $2.99 each, making them $2.49 each. I used $1.50/2 coupon making them $1.74 each. And, I have 2 of the 17 UPC's I need for the Help Pay Your Bills mail in offer.
4-Chex Mix at $2.19 each, 1.69 after discount. I used 4-.50 coupons making them .69 each bag.
3-Keebler cookies on sale for $1.49 each, .99 after discount. I used 1 coupon for $2/2 packages and 1 .55 off one. Making them just .49 each!!
4-Sunny Delight, on sale for $1.49 making them .99 after discount. I used 4-.25 coupons making them just .49 each! (we need the vitamin c right now!)
3-Betty Crocker boxed potatoes on sale for $1.49, making them .99 after discount. I used 1- .40 coupon and 2-.25 coupons, making them .19 and .49 each!
Milk is not on sale and has risen some in price. Gallons now are $2.69 and half gallons are $1.79
I saved $15.10 with coupons, plus the additional $10 off for buying the 20 products.
My receipt shows that I saved $12.76 on sale prices for a total of 72% saved :)
I am very happy with today's shopping!
