Super Savings Saturday – Kroger, Meijer and CVS

by Marcy on October 31, 2008 · 0 comments

I had a pretty good shopping week this week, but will admit that I got a lot of stock up (and random) items. I guess that is the beauty of having a lot of staples on hand from stock piling all year long. I haven’t had to buy meat for a couple of weeks now.

Kroger – Total Spent: $49.03 (picture above)

Some of my best deals after sale and/or coupons:

* Tombstone Frozen Pizzas – $1.99/ea
* Goldfish Crackers – $1/ea (using a rain check from last week’s sale)
* Halloween Candy – $1.17/bag
* Pillsbury Crescent Rolls – $1/ea
* Kroger Half Gallon Milk – $1/ea
* 8 Pack Kroger Buns – $0.39/ea
* Purex Laundry Detergent – $0.99/ea
* Big K 2 Liters of Soda – $0.39/ea

You can see how I matched up coupons with sales here.

I also went to CVS this week and spent approx. $16 out of pocket, earning $10 ECBs. You can view the details of my transactions here.

Total Coupon Savings at CVS: $10.35

My total out of pocket expense this week for groceries/toiletries and household items was $85 and some change. My total coupon savings for this week was $31.35. The best part is that I ended up $77 UNDER budget for the month of October! Unless I missed something. I’m going to double check my numbers just to make sure.
