I love great sales!

I went to Kroger this week to pick up a few things. I managed to remember my big binder of coupons and was so excited to see how much I got for $22!

Recently there was a 75 cents off of any Eggo product in the paper. I had six of these and Kroger had the waffles on sale for $1.59. I paid nine cents each for six boxes of waffles. My kids love, love, love their strawberry flavored ones. Looking through my coupons I found three $1.50 off Kraft dressing coupons that were about to expire and they were on sale for $1.69 so I paid .19 cents for each three bottles. Those nine items cost me a little over a dollar.

Here is a coupon tip:

I got those three $1.50 off Kraft dressing coupons at Meijer. They were on a dressing display they had in the center aisle. I always grab three or four of the coupons that I find on displays or attached to the shelf at the store now and save them because you never know where they will come in handy. There is a good chance that if you hold on to it for a bit you'll find an even better sale at another store to use them at.

Mail Call

Today in the mail I got a few things worth mentioning. First was a coupon for $3 off of a bottle of Suave from January 14th. I also received a box from Bzzagent with a candle from Glade. They have a new line called the Fragrance Collection. They are soy based candles. I was given the currants & acai scent and it is a short, wide candle with three wicks. It really does smell wonderful. Also included were coupons for my use and to share.
