When I tell people that I am a coupon shopper, they usually look at me like I'm crazy. I often hear, well I don't waste my time clipping coupons because it isn't worth it. I also hear that you can only get "junk" with coupons. Well check my recent Kroger's shopping trip....What's in my buggies?
32-ct DBL roll of Charmin, 7 Fusion ProGlide Razors, 7 Old Spice Body Washes, 7 assorted deoderants, 2 Covergirl eyeshadows and mascaras, Tide HE 64 load box, 1 Dole bagged salad,
5# Clementines, 2 x ChipsAhoy cookies, 2 doz. donuts, 2 pks of granola bars, 9 individual pks of peanuts, 1 box of toaster struddle, 2.5# peaches, 18-ct eggs, 7 lrg. cereal boxes, 2 x OreIda fries, 4.5# pork tenderloin (sliced free), 10 x Smart Choice frozen entrees,4 RibEye steaks, 3 lb. Tyson Chicken tenderloins, 4 pks of Kraft cheese slices, 1 pk of Kraft cheese shredded, 2.5# green grapes, 2.5# red grapes, 2.5 # peaches, 1#blueberries, 1# strawberries, 2.7# bananas, broccoli, and cauliflower.

Maybe not my best shopping trip but I still save $161.11 in coupons!

Total Cost for all of this = $156.53 but since I have not been shopping in at least 3 weeks, I feel I did alright. Other than the 2 pks of cookies and 2 doz. donuts, everything is either a healthy item or a necessary household/hba item. So Junk? I think not. Waste of time? Definitely not.

I still need to buy milk...but another local grocery store gives you a milk ticket every time you purchase a gallong and I have enough to get some milk FREE. So I'll be getting my milk for FREE this week.

Check out Kroger's Summer of Savings contest. Enter and spin everyday until

After playng the instant win game be sure to register your Kroger Plus card and load it with digital coupons. There are some great money savers there to maximize savings by matching with the $4 off instantly when you mix & match P&G products. The beauty of electronic/digital coupons is that they work in addition to any manufacturer coupon you have in hand.
