My $29.56 Kroger Trip-Oct 18

I needed to few staples yesterday (milk, bread, fruit, coffee, syrup) and decided to go ahead and stock up on sale items. I think I did pretty good, considering there were a couple of impulse items (Dr. Pepper, sour cream, rice, Steam & Mash) thrown in. My total OOP was only $29.56. Yippee!

Here are some highlight's:

Steam & Mash on sale, $2.00 - $1.00 newspaper coupon = $1.00 each

Betty Crocker instant potato pouches $1.00 - $.35 newspaper coupon tripled (up to purchase price) = FREE

Dr. Pepper 2 liter on sale = $.94

Brut Deodorant on sale, $1.00 - $1.00 newspaper coupon = FREE

Irish Spring 3 pk on sale, $1.50 - $.30 newspaper cpn tripled = $.60

International Delight Coffee Creamer (the big ones) on sale, $1.99 - $.55 newspaper cpn = $1.44

Tyson Chicken Nuggets on sale, $5.00 - $1.00 newspaper coupon = $4.00

Cap'n Crunch on sale, $2.00 - $.50 newspaper coupon doubled = $1.00

Glory Blacked Eye Peas (price vary per "flavor") $1.09 - $.35 newspaper coupon tripled = $.04

Soft Soap on sale $1.00 - $.35 newspaper coupon tripled up to sale price = FREE

Sara Lee Whole Grain White Bread (only) on sale B1G1, $1.14 each. I just froze the second one.

Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce $3.19 - free item coupon = FREE

After I got my list ready I had some inspiration from Maryanne over at My Penny Pile. She does an awesome job covering what's free and super cheap at Kroger each week. This trip I saved $44.62 and earned $54 towards the Fuel Rewards discount.

Angie...have you tried the Steam and Mash yet?? We tried the Russet Potato ones and we really disliked them. Was wondering if it was just that particular one. Tasted like instant to us??

No, we haven't! But you've inspired me to try them. :) Funny, I almost used the coupon at Walmart a while back, but refused to pay about $2.00 for them. At least I only might have wasted $1 per bag. Haha.

Tomorrow schedule wise will be perfect for us to try them....I'll keep you posted! :)
