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.
It is a search engine that randomly awards you Swagbucks for your web searches you make. Since January I have earned $15 worth of Amazon gift cards from them. You are pretty much guaranteed at least one SB per day that you use the search engine.
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.
I'm trying to hold myself accountable for saving our family money while having fun. I have two school age boys and a wonderful husband. Our current goal is to save up enough money to pay off our mortgage and have a fully funded emergency fund.
