How to work a deal. WAGS and Kroger.

6 Jun

My kids are driving me bananas. My husband works out of town. My house is a wreck. There are 9,000 other things I need to be doing, but if I don’t spend a few minutes locked in my office blogging, then I may lose my mind. Does anyone else know the feeling?!?!

I promise I will do my coupon class part 5 later tonight, but for right now, here are my latest savings…

This week, at these two stores I spent $47.83 and saved $94.84!!!


As most of y’all know, I no longer have a thyroid and my life literally depends on my synthroid. Therefore I LOVE LOVE LOVE those coupons that say “transfer your prescription to our store and we’ll give you a $25 gift card.”  Y’all, it is so easy to transfer a RX. I would transfer it every month if I had the coupons for it!  Even if you don’t take medicine on a regular basis, you should clip these! (or give them to me 🙂 Yesterday I had my synthroid filled at Kroger and they put $25 worth of free groceries on my  rewards card. Here are the groceries I got for FREE. (I didn’t even use coupons!! I just bought items on sale)

5 boxes of Annies macaroni

2 boxes of Cascadian Farms Cereal

2 bags of Pirates’ Booty

2 Endangered Species Organic Dark Choclocate Bars

1 bunch of bananas

1 Organic Avacado


I have said it before, but I really usually hate the drug store deals. I feel like it’s easy to overspend or to have to buy additional items just to use your rewards dollars. But today I got great deals!!

Today at Walgreens I spent $47.83 and saved $69.84 (60% savings!!)

The following items were what I went in to buy…

=$6.37 for all 5 items or just $1.27 each!

HOWEVER– I added more items that I thought were a good deal too!  I did 2 transactions..

Transaction 1: I bought all of the items listed in the scenario above PLUS

  • (2) Burts Bees gift packs.- Originally $12.99 each. On sale for $6.49 each.

I’ve a friend who is having a baby tomorrow and a friend who’s in the hospital. I thought these would be cute little “happys” for them.

My Kroger Trip Spent $35 SAVED $45! (+ got FREE donation items!)

10 Nov

This week I stocked up on several items at Kroger. My babies eat Annie’s macaroni like it’s going out of style, and in anticipation on colder weather, I took advantage of amazing prices on organic broth. I am always making soups and such. Plus I was able to get free items to donate to Graceworks! Click the link to see how you can help at Graceworks this Christmas season!



I got two deals on the Mega Event sale. If you buy 10 participating items, you get $5 off. I bought 20 of those items, so I got $10 off!

I bought 15 boxes on Annies Macaroni. They were on sale for $1.65 a box, but after the Mega Event, the cost was only $0.69 per box! I also had (1) $0.75/2 coupon, so I got one of those boxes FREE!!

I bought 5 boxes of Imagine Organic broth. They were on sale for $2.49 a box. The Mega Event took off $0.50 per box. Then I had (5) $1.00/1 coupons. After Mega event savings and coupons each box cost only $0.99 !!


Not too long ago, Kroger mailed me coupons for a FREE bag of Ruffle Potato Chips, and a FREE package of Oscar Mayer Deli Meat.

I also had (2) coupons for a FREE 2 Liter of Dr. Pepper 10.

Unique Sales

I saw a coupon on a package of Bear Naked Granola for $2.00 off a 32oz. package of Stoneyfield organic yogurt with the purchase of both items. The Granola was priced lower than it is at Publix and Whole Foods, so I took advantage of this deal…

(1)  32 oz. Stoneyfield Organic Yogurt @$3.50. I used the $2/1 coupon making the yogurt only $1.50

price for Granola and Yogurt was only $5.35

My Kroger Trip

7 Jul

I really don’t care for  Kroger, but let’s face it, it is right next door to Target, and I practically live at Target. I usually only go to Kroger when I notice that they have a good deal. I ran in to the store today for just a few minutes while my sister sat in the car with my babies. I went in for only three things, but I did notice that there were LOTS of yellow tags on items in the healthy/natural foods section. I don’t remember prices, but I know I saw some Nature’s path, Cascadian Farms,  and Kashi  items on sale. I may go back to check it out, BUT Kroger doesn’t take competitors’ coupons which sometimes can ruin what could be a great deal! (Just another reason I love Publix.) Anyway, here it is:

I spent- $13.52

I saved- $11.16 (thats 48%!)


(4) All Natural Gluten Free Boulder Potato Chips Bags- on sale for $2.00 a bag. I used (2) $1/2 coupons making them only= $ 1.50 per bag

(1) Kashi Frozen Pizza- on sale for $5.99. I used (1) $2/1 Kashi product Recyclebank coupon making the price total only= $3.99

(2) Kashi Cereals- on sale for $2.99 a box. I used (2) $2/1 Kashi product Recyclebank coupons making the price only= $.99 per box!
