Pantene - Full price $6.97, Sale Buy one Get one - so $3.49 each and earns $2.00 in extra bucks.
Crest Pro Health Rinse (mouthwash) - Full price $7.49, sale price $4.50, $2.00 coupon and $2.50 in extra bucks.
Oral B Toothbrush - Full price $6.89, sale price $6.00, $2.00 coupon and $3.00 in extra bucks.
Revlon Eye Pencil - full price $10.99, not on sale, but coupon worth $3.00 and earned $4.00 in extra bucks.
Allegra - Full price $15.79, not on sale, but had a coupon for $2.00 off and Smug-Hub really, really needed it!!!
OK, so I would have spent $55.10 if I had paid full price for everything.
I would have spent $44.25 had I just bought them at the sale price.
I saved another $9.00 with the coupons and earned $11.50 in extra bucks and lets face it, that is like cash in hand! So I saved a total of $31.35 after taxes!! Its like paying $23.75 for $55.10 worth of products! I'd say that is worth the 90 minutes I spent cutting coupons and compiling my list!!
As for Kroger, I will not break down each item, cause, well, I don't have that kind of time!! However, I didn't purchase anything that wasn't on sale and my total was $99.78 before the plus card or the few coupons. I walked out having only paid $60.19!!! That is a savings of over $39.00!!! That is a combination of sale prices, eCoupons loaded on my plus card and paper coupons!!
That doesn't even include the fuel points - 146 so far this month and that will translate to $0.10 off each gallon of gas the next time I fill up!
So, what did I come home with???
