I'm Loving the Grocery Game

It's a good week for the Grocery Game and me. Last week I wasn't feeling it so much, and then I saw this week's list. And we are on again.

Here is a list of what I am getting for FREE!!! from Kroger....

2 bottles of Pert Plus shampoo (normally 3.39 each)
5 (yes, five!!!) packs of Cottonelle Toilet Paper
4 boxes of Celestial Seasonings Tea (normally 2.99 each)
3 boxes of Green Valley Fresh Steamers Vegetables (normally 1.79 each)

so that's what, 23.00 worth of free merchandise, rounding down!!

That's my free list, and here is my drastically reduced prices list

2 Reach Toothbrushes=1.00 (normally 2.16 each)
6 Scotch Brite Sponges=3.00
Purdue Chicken Breasts= 1.99/lb (I am stocking up on this, so I plan to reserve about 10.00 worth of grocery budget for this) (normally 5.49/lb)
3 Boxes of Green Giant Healthy Weight Vegetables=1.50 (normally 1.79 each)
6 boxes of Green Giant Regular Vegetables(not sure what the difference is between these and the previous, but whatever)=3.00 (normally 1.79 each)
2 boxes of Ronzoni Smart Taste Pasta=.66 (normally 1.89 each)

I am going in the morning because my coupon pile is a mile high, and I hate to be that girl holding up the grocery line. And I find that Kroger is quite empty at 8 am on a weekday morning. Plus, I am just so excited to see these savings in person.

And to top it all off, CVS has been good to me too. I had a rain check for a free box of Always Infinity Pads. I went to claim that free box today, and when the cashier rang it up (for free) out printed a dollar extra buck. Yes, they paid me a dollar to take the always pads. That is my kind of shopping. Tomorrow I am heading over there after Kroger to stock up on Huggies diapers. I plan to purchase 3 packs of Huggies diapers for less than 30.00, and I will receive 10.00 extra bucks!!! is a good week for saving money.

Hi LB,
I am seriously so impressed with this savings!!! I'm so excited to play when I'm no longer working. I took a few of your tips last week with the paper and got too frustrated. We'll have to have a tutoring session...or teach Adam while I'm supporting him!!! Good job!
PS It is totally fine to hover if you have a crying child. You get the speed it up pass. :)

Hope the coupons I gave you yesterday aided in the savings of the week! :)

Thanks for your candor about ALL of your money saving items, including the ALWAYS PADS. That's honesty. I think I only blushed once while reading it.:)
