Amazing Savings

I went to Publix, Kroger, and Wal-Mart this afternoon to do next week's grocery shopping since I will be out of town. I couldn't let these great deals pass me up, so out we went.

At Publix, I saved over $102 and only spent $28.23. Most of what I bought I am donating to a local food pantry. I managed to not put anything in my cart today unless I had a coupon for it! I got the Betty Crocker potatoes for 9 cents each, the Chex Mix for 27 cents each, the Glass Plus for 24 cents each, the Domino brown sugar for 19 cents each, the canned veggies for 4 cents and 9 cent each, and so on...AMAZING!

We then headed to Kroger to get some diapers. The jumbo pack (30 diapers) was on sale for $9.99. I bought two and used my ShortCuts coupons for $1.50 and $1.00 and then used two paper coupons for $1.00 each. I paid $15.50 for 60 diapers. Not bad! But the best deal was my purchase of two Oil of Olay ribbon body washes. They are $4.29 each. I used a ShortCuts coupon for BOG1 free and then used 2 $2.00 off paper coupons. I paid 29 cents for both of them!! AMAZING!

After Kroger, we went to Wal-Mart to get FREE vegetables. Green Giant Valley Fresh Steamers were on sale for $1.00. I had 12 $1.00 off coupons, so we stocked up on more FREE veggies! AMAZING!

Girl, I cannot even keep up with you! You are getting me all excited.

I can't wait for Sunday's paper to start doing this.

I am not doing any grocery shopping until after Thanksgiving, so I've got some time, but I don't know how I'm going to get the number of coupons you get!

I guess I'm going to have to get up early on Monday and Tuesdays to go thru the neighbor's recycling tubs! LOL!

I shared this with the girls I teach with, and two of them are already doing this!

I knew I had to check your blog this morning woman!

Good trip!

I am so impressed with your savings!! I love couponing. It's like a game, and I am determined to beat my deals from the week before. Thanks for the tip about juicy juice!! I love when it's BOGO.

By the way, what a small world. Tutti does live in Eagle's Landing, and her daughter, Ruth, is in your daughter's class!! We go to the library every Monday morning at 10:30 for lapsit, and then we eat at Chick-fil-a afterwards. You should join us. It's always really fun.

hey, one more question. How are you managing to get so many copies of the coupons? I always get four papers, but I see that you had 12 coupons for the free vegetables. I tried going through the recycling bins, but I never really found what I wanted.
