I know a picture is worth a thousand words but after moving (20) 2x4's three times, chasing kids through Target (while they said "can I have this, can I have this"), pulling the kids through Kroger, coming out of the store to a black sky and shoving the kids in the van to try to avoid the torrential downpour that was to come, plus trying to chase down my reusable frozen bag that blew out of the vehicle while trying to load it, I didn't FEEL like taking a picture of my items when I got home! :) I can't imagine why, can you?
Anyway here are some of the best items that I found while shopping:
~ a (2) pk. of Kashi cereal for $3.84 - $1.50/2 ic, the cereal came with a coupon for a free Silk soy milk product, which I peeled off and picked up at Kroger
~Leapfrog Didj game $14.98 - $5 ic (earlier blog post) = $9.98
~Kellogg's Extra Raisin Bran Cereal $2.50 - $1c = $1.50
~Target brand sunscreen $5.24 - $1.50 Target coupon (from the mail) = $3.74
~Head and Shoulder shampoo BIG bottle with 2 free trial sizes clearanced to $2.24 a piece bought (2) used $1/2c
~Zip Loc steamer bags $2.29 - $1 Target c. (Target website) - .40c = .89
~16 ct. light bulbs clearanced to $3.48 (I personally LIKE the regular light bulbs because the idea of calling hazmat every time we break one of those new fangled light bulbs just doesn't appeal to me...)
Kroger finds, I am not mentioning everything. I did start with a total of $108.xx and ended with $64.71 as my total oop. Still think that I could have done better without my children there picking up things that I had no intention of purchasing...I obviously didn't have a coupon for some of their longings.
~Scott 8 pk. paper towels $4.99 - $2c (Kroger Catalina) = $2.99
~Dasani Water $1.39 - .50c - .50dc = .39 (used Kroger mailable coupon)
~Lysol Twin pk. toilet bowl cleaner $2.49 - .50c - .50dc = $1.49 (the single sizes were gone or I could have gotten one for .29)
~24 pk. Kroger water $2.48 (x3)
~Lean pkts $1.69 - .50c- .50dc = .69 (x2)
~Coffeemate cream $1.99 - .50c - .50dc = .99
~Multiple Kraft cheese products $1.67 - $1c and .50c making them .67 a piece
~Kroger 18 ct eggs $1.39
That is about it. There are other things that I just bought because I needed them...you ever do that? Anyway, I hope this gives you an idea how you can save money with coupons and by going to certain stores that have items on sale.
