Marsh Trip #2

Bought 1/2 Gallon of Soy Milk for the baby with a raincheck from last week.

She drinks a special kind formulated for kids and they only had one in stock. My raincheck was for 4 so I asked at customer service and she was able to write me a raincheck for the other 3. Marsh is not my favorite store because it is small and the prices are generally much higher than elsewhere. But I must say I have been very happy with their customer service.

Spent $3.00

Saved .69

Kroger unadvertised Deal on Cheese 2/19-2/25

I found I great unadvertised special at Kroger on Kraft Cheese. Apparently Kroger has decided follow Meijer and put their Kraft cheese on sale for $2. However at Kroger the cheese bars and individually wrapped slices are included as well. The Blinkies at my Kroger is still spitting out $.75 off coupons so I was able to buy %2 individually wrapped slices for $1.25!

Kroger Trip #10

Spent $20.53

Saved $27.47

I actually bought the wrong Saltines. These were $1 instead of .88. The shampoo I had free bottle of Suave coupon for from a promotion I signed up for online months ago. The bags of chips are smaller than I thought and normally sell for 1.29 so the savings weren't as good as I had hoped. I had Internet coupons for the cottonelle making them free and my photogenic found $1/2 coupons for Distinctly Dole right next to the marked down salad. The green pepper was .98. Produce is getting so expensive.

I did find a great unadvertised special on cheese. Kroger has their Kraft for $2 the same price Meijer does this week. My store is still stocked with .75/1 coupons. The fantastic part is that at Kroger %2 cheese slices are included! My kids just finished off the ones I bought 2 weeks ago and I was hoping to get some for a good price but $1.25 is better than good. I am going to try to go back for more.
