Have you missed me?  Between my sister and her family visiting for spring break and then my mom coming in for a visit, things have been pretty busy around here!

Our fridge and pantry were looking really bare so I was very excited to see a GREAT sale at Publix this week!  I spent twice as much as normal this week; however, I’m still within my monthly budget since I haven’t been to the grocery in awhile and we are well stocked again!  I went to both Publix and Kroger today, here’s my loot:

    A great shopping day at Kroger

    I have not been this excited about a Kroger ad in some time!  This week Kroger is having their $5 off 10 items mega event!  The idea is that you can mix and match any 10 participating items and receive an additional $5 off your total when you check out  (or an extra .50 per item) and you can do a max of 30 items in one transaction (i.e. $15 off one transaction).  There are lots of great items that will be good for the upcoming baking season and when combined with coupons they are a steal!  Here’s what I got and prices:

    • 3 Nestle Mosels $2.50×3=$7.50-$3 coupons-1.50 mega deal (md) = $3 ($1 each)
    • 2 Carnation Evaporated Milk $1×2=$2-1 coupons-1 md = FREE
    • 1 5lb. Domino Sugar $2.50-.70 coupons-.50 md = $1.30
    • 3 General Mills Cereal $2×3=$6-$1 coupon – 1.50 md = $3.50 ($1.17 each)
    • 3 Land O Lakes Butter $2.50×3=$7.50 – 1.35 coupons – 1.50md = $4.65 ($1.55 each)
    • 4 Hunt’s Diced Tomatos $1.50×4=6-1.60 coupons – 2 md = $2.40 (.60 each)
    • 3 Smucker’s Jelly $2.50×3=$7.50 – $1.25 coupons-1.50md = $4.75 ($1.58 each)
    • 3 Quaker Oats $1.50×3=4.50 – $3coupons – 1.50md = FREE
    • 4 Zatarains Rice Mix $1.50×4=$6-1.50 coupons – 2md = $2.50 (.63 each)
    • 2 Betty Crocker Au Gratin Potatos $1.50×2=$3-1.40 coupons-1md = $.60 (.30 each)
    • 2 Hefty Storage Bags $1.50×2=3-1.10 coupons – 1md = .90 (.45 each)
    • Chicken Breast 1.99/lb (not part of the mega deal but a great price! $7.00

    Total $62.50, less $16.90 coupons, less $15 in mega deal, plus $1.82 tax = $32.42 Out of Pocket! (67% savings)

    I’m always surprised as I walk through the store and look at other people’s carts and realize that they have NO IDEA how much they could be saving! It amazes me that people don’t pay more attention to the ad deals . . . who doesn’t want to have this much fun while shopping?!?
