Thank You Target

So, thanks to a mistake on Target's part (2 of my items rang up at the wrong price and when I took it to customer service, I ended up getting some things for free) I was able to get everything below for $3.55. Yes, that includes a BRAND NEW pair of Osh Kosh Sunday shoes for Abe. I have been loving the deals lately!

Amazing Kroger Sale!

Our Kroger was running a really good sale this week. I got up early this morning so I could be sure to get everything I wanted. The following cost me a grand total of $0.99!!! It has a retail value of $48.22, so I paid 2% of the retail value!!

Toddler Food

So, Ken found me these awesome coupons at Kroger for $0.75 off any Beechnut Grow product. We took them to Lowe's Foods, who doubles, and I was able to get these for a total of $0.19. So sweet. The best part is, he got me 30 coupons! They don't expire for a few months, so I can slowly build a nice supply of crackers, fruit snacks, mac n cheese, etc...for basically nothing!

Oh I love Harris Teeter and Fruity Pebbles.

So, I found out one of my favorite stores, Harris Teeter, accepts Walgreen's Register Rewards. This is amazing. I can score them for free many times at Walgreens and then use them to buy groceries. So sweet. I had one expiring today and I combined it with some sale stuff and came away with all this for $1.87
2 boxes Capt Crunch - sale 2/$4 I had 2 - $0.50 coupons that doubled
2 boxes Fruity Pebbles - sale 2/$4, I had a coupon $1 off 2
2 boxes Rice Krispies - sale $1.25, I had 2 - $1 off coupons
1 box Hungry Jack - sale $1.97, I had $0.55 coupon that doubled
2 boxes Quaker granola - sale 2/$4, I had $1 off 2 coupon
4 boxes South Beach bars - sale 2/$5, I had a $2 off coupon for each one

Coupon Craze is back!

I've been a little off the bandwagon with my coupons. Mind you, I've still bargained shopped and got some great deals and used coupons, just not with as much zeal. Lately I've been back on fire with them. I am proud to admit that all my coupons are cut and filed. Hooray! Anyway, here is my deals of today.

6 bags of Kraft Cheese
(on sale BOGO, so $1.89 each. $0.75 coupon that double to $1.50, meant you were paying $0.39 for a bag of cheese. For some reason, 2 of my coupons didn't double, I pointed it out to the cashier, but she said she couldn't do anything. I was getting such a great deal, I didn't fuss)
10 boxes Green Giant vegetables
(on sale $1 each. I had 4 $0.50 off one that doubled and 3 $0.50 off 2 that doubled)
2 Cottonelle Toilet Paper 4 packs
(They cost $0.99 and I had $0.50 coupon that doubled)
2 King's Hawaiian Rolls
(on sale $1.00, I had $1.00 off coupons)
4 Reese's Whips Candy bars
(on sale 2/$1.00, I had $1.00 off 2 coupons)
2 tubs of Pillsbury frosting
(on clearance for $0.69, I had $0.40 coupons that doubled)
8 Beechnut Toddler Meals
($1.38 a piece, I would NEVER pay this when you can buy Mac N Cheese or Spaghetti-O's at Wal-Mart for a fraction of the price, but I had $0.75 coupons that doubled and made them free! and you can't beat free! I have 24 more of these coupons that I can use throughout the next few months too!)

My total for all my groceries: $7.46 (retail value approximately $53.00, which means I paid about 14% of the value!)
