Elaine the Super Shopper

We did Kroger’s Mega Savings Event deal today.  Here’s what we got:


3 Purex laundry soap (the kind that doesn’t build up residue on our cloth diapers, an extra bonus!); 6 Pillsbury Grands! biscuits; 3 pounds of hamburger; a family size Country Crock butter; a Coke 2-liter, and a Yoplait Fruit Smoothie.

Total: $4.95

The fruit smoothie was free, and I had coupons for everything else except the Coke (we’re having dinner guests tomorrow night), and I got $9 toward my next shopping trip.  Isn’t Elaine turning into a great shopper?  By the way do you like her tights?  They were another great deal – 98 cents on clearance!

While I’m posting about savings, I’ll itemize our coupon savings so far.  I started tracking on January 23rd.  We got $200.49 worth of product for $73.05 – a savings of $127.44!  For February so far we have purchased $205.76 worth of product for only $103.77 – a savings of $101.99!  Our year-to-date savings are $229.43.   I mentioned before that we are attempting to spend $73.20 or less on groceries this month.  So far we have spend $60.58, but we don’t have any shopping to do next week.  And we have meat in the freezer for next month!


  1. How did you get the yoplait smoothies free? :)

  2. I received a coupon for a free Yoplait smoothies from General Mills Pssst... program. I also received a half dozen coupons for $1.25 off to share with friends.
