I didn't take any pictures today,

But I think I'm starting to get the hang of this coupon thing. I stopped at Baker's to take one last round at the Mega Event. All starting prices are the Mega Event price, figuring in the $5 off. Here's how I did:

Dark Chocolate Chex Mix- $1.69, .50/1 MF, .60/1 cfire= .59
Steam Fresh Broc & Cheese- $1.00, .50/1 MF, .50/1 scuts= FREE
Steam Fresh Broc & Cheese-$1.00, .50/1 MF= .50
2 Wheat Thins @ $1.89/ea, $2/2 MF= .89 each
4 Coffee Mate FF Vanilla Creamers @ $2.49/ea, 1.50/1 FF= .99 each
Fiber One Bars @ $2.09, .50/1 MF, .50/1 scuts= $1.09
5lb. bag of Russet potatoes @ $1.49

Total vendor coupon savings= $17.60
Total store savings=$9.16
Total savings= $26.76
OOP= $8.41 (a 76% savings!)

Plus I snagged 2 of the .75 Kraft cheese coupons from the feeder in the dairy dept. and will use those at another store that is having the $1.49 sale this week, without the 10 item requirement.

WOOT!

I don't know what Baker's is but I wish there was one around here. Nice job.

It's a Kroger. Different name. Pretty much the same store

Yeah you! I'm going to Kroger today for the 3rd time this sale. I've found a lot of coupons to go along with the deals and it's hard to pass up free and basically free food.

One thing to keep in mind is that the good sales with many, many matching coupons come far between a lot of the time, so it's good to stock when you can to get through the slow weeks.

I'm a recent college graduate trying to save a buck. I was searching for sites that offered deals and coupon savings and came across your blog. I saw that you had list of printable coupon links and thought it would interest you to check out the coupon savings pages on www.deals2buy.com and www.cheapstingybargains.com because they also offer great deals, sometimes daily, for gadgets and other products. Both sites have printable coupons as well as coupon codes for the online shoppers. Stores include Target, Walmart, Home Depot, Sears, HP, Dell and other great brands. Other coupons sites I've found on my quest to save money are www.couponseven.com and www.couponshare.com.

Just thought I'd let you know! Thanks so much for your blog. It's very helpful for a college student trying to save money.
