Kroger-Groceries AND Gas for $59.82

My trips to Kroger seem to just get better and better! We were low on staples (milk, fruit, waffles, yogurt, etc.) and I also needed gas. Here's what I this trip:

I did 2 transactions this time. First I ran into get as many Glade Plug-Ins I could find. They are $4.49 each and they give back a $4.00 catalina. I have lots of B1G1 free coupons!! I only found 2....but that's a $3.16 profit for each "set" of 2 that I buy.

OOP = $4.84 and $8.00 back in catalinas. I even took them to the car!

On transaction # 2 I used coupons and the $8.00 from above. OOP = $21.52

Total out of pocket for the trips was 26.36 but I'll get $5.00 back for the Minute Maids juice boxes with the rebate I told you about here. So, my overall OOP was really only $21.36 for all those groceries. And the pumpkins where $7.76 of that total ($3.88 each)!

Then, I got gas on the way out. I had finally reached the $100 mark for the Fuel Reward discount. E-85 was running $1.91 - $.10 discount = $1.81 a gallon. Wow! It only cost me $38.46 to fill up an empty Tahoe. I didn't think I'd see these day again! If I weren't so eco-friendly, I'd drive around just because I can afford to again. :)
