My $.32 Grocery Trip

Kroger Coupon Haul

Usually grocery shopping isn’t my idea of fun, but my last trip was a blast. I shop at Kroger, and their latest Mega Event started Wednesday. It included sales on several items that I’ve been needing to stock up on, so I printed a BUNCH of coupons, and headed out.

Here’s what I got:

  • (8) boxes of Hefty gallon freezer bags
  • (9) boxes of Ronzoni whole grain pasta
  • (1) bottle of Welch’s Farmer’s Pick blackberry juice
  • (2) bags of Lay’s Kettle Cooked chips
  • (2) half gallons of Turkey Hill iced tea
  • (7) packages of Biscoff cookies

My Total Before Savings: $69.84

Kroger Receipt

And here’s how I got it down to $.32:

The Mega Event and other sales took $39.52 off of my bill
Coupons took off another $10
And then I redeemed $20 in Catalinas that I earned the previous week

That left me with a $.32 balance to pay. Pretty cool.

Better still: The Mega Event is a two-week sale, so I should be able to do a lot of these deals again next week when the coupons reset for July.

Want to Get Coupon Deals Like This without Putting a Ton of Time into It?

It’s a lot easier than you might think. This shopping trip took me 15 minutes to plan. That’s doable right? The key is to let other people do most of the work for you. Find a deal blogger that covers the store or stores that you shop at most, and follow them. If there’s a killer deal, they’ll post it. If there’s a coupon that matches up to a sale, they’ll tell you where to grab it, and if there’s an unadvertised special, they’ll tell you that, too.

Since I shop at Kroger, I follow KrogerKrazy.com. I just drop by her site several times a week to see what she’s posted, and I jump on any deals that excite me.

Still Think You Don’t Have Time to Coupon?

Then, consider this: Since that 15 minutes of planning saved me $69.52, that translates to an hourly rate of $278.08! Now, I don’t know what you make, but that’s definitely more than I make in an hour.

Christmas Candy Coupons

Christmas Candy Coupons

Halloween may be the candy holiday, but Christmas really has the better candy coupons. It’s when all the coupons for Ferrero Rocher, Lindt and Godiva come out, and it’s when I get busy clipping and printing.

But you won’t see me racing to the store to redeem my coupons. Nope. I sit on’em until all the holiday candy goes 75% off, and then I do a big yearly stock up with coupons in hand.

Want to do your own post-holiday stock up? Here’s a list of the Christmas candy coupons that are out now. Grab’em while you can:

Kmart Toilet Paper Deal

Kmart Toilet Paper Deal

If you have a Kmart near you, now’s a great time to stock up on toilet paper. Check out this deal that I cooked up (and tested) yesterday:

Transaction 1
Buy three Cottonelle toilet paper 12-pks, on sale for $3.99 each.
=$11.97
Scan your Shop Your Way Rewards card at the register.
Receive $3 off instantly (the toilet paper is part of a buy 3, save $3 promotion)
=$8.97
Use three Cottonelle coupons. The 10/13 SS has $.50 off or $1 off coupons (depending on your area). There’s also a $.55 coupon here.
= pay as low as 5.97
Get a $3 Catalina back for buying 3 Cottonelle 12-packs

Transaction 2
Buy one more Cottonelle 12-pack for $3.99
Use the $3 Catalina.
Pay $.99

That’s 48 double rolls of toilet paper for $6.96, or just $.07 per single roll!

Now, this happens to be a double coupon week at Kmart, so if you have other shopping to do that will run your total up to $25 before coupons, here’s an even better scenario:

Transaction 1
Buy three Cottonelle toilet paper 12-pks, on sale for $3.99 each.
=$11.97
Scan your Shop Your Way Rewards card at the register.
Receive $3 off instantly (the toilet paper is part of a buy 3, save $3 promotion)
=$8.97
Use three Cottonelle coupons. The 10/13 SS has $.50 off or $1 off coupons (depending on your area). There’s also a $.55 coupon here. Coupons double up to $1, so that $1 coupon will be worth $2.
= pay as low as $2.97
Get a $3 Catalina back for buying 3 Cottonelle 12-packs

Transaction 2
Buy one more Cottonelle 12-pack for $3.99
Use the $3 Catalina.
Pay $.99

That’s 48 rolls for $3.96, or just $.04 per single roll!
