on sale for 2.81
I had a coupon for $1.00 off Colgate Total
I had another coupon for $1.50 off my next Kroger purchase
making the price of the toothpaste .31 !!!
Also, Kroger was having their buy ten participating items and get $5 off your total. Hubs and I both really like Life Water, but it normally costs $1.49 a bottle. BUT, I got 9 bottles (the toothpaste was also one of the participating items and was my tenth item) that were on sale for .99. After the $5 off, I got $13.50 worth of Life Water for.......$3.91!!!
Then I went to Publix. The BIG boxes of General Mills cereal that are normally 4.99 a box were on sale for BOGOF. I also had a coupon for $1 off. So I got $9.98 worth of cereal for $3.99.
I'm still learning, but I thought I did pretty good! For me, it's just as much about the challenge as it is the money saving. After we were done grocery shopping we went to Toys R Us to find C a backpack for kindergarten. He really likes Transformers and BumbleBee is his favorite. He found the backpack he wanted and they were having a sale so we got a Transformer lunchbox for free!
Then for lunch, we went through the Little Ceasars (my favorite pizza) drive thru and got a $5 large pizza for the three of us and guess what... it came with a free Diet Coke! I texted Hubs after we left there and said I can't stop saving money today :)
