Saturday Savings-- Organic Milk and More

I ran into Kroger last night to pick up early edition copies of the Sunday paper. While I was there I did a quick trip through the store to see if I could find any deals.

I paid $8.96 total including tax ($4.00 worth was newspapers, so really $4.96 including tax for the food)


Receipt didn't print very clear- $25.63 savings


Here's how I did it, so you can learn how to do it too!

9 Voskos Greek yogurts (8 pictured, as Emily was eating the 9th :)    On sale $1.00 each
   -used 6 $.75/1 "blinkies" (dispenser found on dairy case) and 3 B2G1 Free from 1/23/11 RP (RP= Red Plum newspaper insert)
Total paid: $1.50

1 Land O'Lakes spreadable butter: On sale $1.00 each
  -used .$40/1 Land O'Lakes Spread from 1/09/11 SS (SS=Smart Source newspaper insert) auto-doubled to $.80 off at register
Total paid: $.20

3 Kashi GoLean Bars: On sale $1.00 each
  -used 2 $2.00/1 Kashi item printable coupons "earned" from recyclebank.com 
Total paid: free plus $1.00 overage

Cantaloupe: On sale $2.18
  - used 1 $3.00 off fresh fruit when you buy 3 Kashi items ("peelie" found on some Kashi cereals)
Total paid: Free plus $.82 overage

Nasoya Tofu Plus: $.75
  -  sell by date of 2/28/11 and was discounted from $2.99, used $1.25/1 printable from mambosprouts.com
Total paid: Free plus $.50 overage

Gallon Horizon Organic 1% Milk: $3.29
  - this one container was discounted 1/2 price, I'm assuming because of the dent. Expiration date was the same as the other containers and is otherwise fine.
Total paid: $3.29

6 Kroger yogurts: $.40 each...we eat a lot of yogurt around here
Total paid: $2.40

2 Sunday Early Edition newspapers: $2.00 each

  3. WOW - you do very well with couponing! I still feel like a "newbie" Every once in a while, I am able to match up a coupon with a sale item and get an awesome deal. Love that feeling!

  4. Just saw your note about the Run the Reagan. I really like the race. Very well organized, activities for kids, etc. It is pretty hilly which would seem to be a good tune up for the GA Marathon. This was my 4th time running the race so I must like it - ha ha

  5. Good to know you've done it once and have gone back for more! It would be a much closer drive, and easier for the hubby to entertain Emily. I had no idea it existed until I got a flyer in mail about 2 weeks beforehand.

  6. That's amazing! You make me feel bad that I don't even look at coupons. I should start making an effort to at least read them!

  8. Wow! This is the second post I've read in two days that shows huge savings with coupons. Seriously, how do you learn to do it? Are there books and websites for understanding how to use coupons? I never know what I can and can't double.... I want to learn to save big like you do! (:

  9. I am so impressed by those of you who can score deals like this too. I'm never patient enough to figure out deals. Nor organized enough to always have coupons on hand. You did awesome!
