Kroger 10 Item Mega Event: $70.21 for only...

Actually, my total was only $4.96 after the Kroger discounts and my coupons.

So, what did $4.96 buy me this morning at Kroger? Take a look:

It's a bit blurry - sorry!

This was one transaction; the 10 Item Mega sale limit is three rewards per transaction. So of course I maxed it out with 30 of the participating items (along with a couple other good deals).

Here's the breakdown with coupons used (all coupons from recent Sunday inserts; the only printables I used were (3) different $2/1 any size Excedrin.)

I should note that my Kroger doubles coupons up to $1.00. Hope yours does, too!

$1.00 items:

(4) Excedrin - (3) printable $2/1 any size, click here and here; (1) $2/1 any size (Sunday inserts) coupon

(2) French's Mustard - (2) $0.50/1 coupons

(2) Hormel Chili with Beans - (1) $1/2 coupon

(6) Pillsbury Grands Biscuits - (2) $0.50/3 coupons

(2) Pillsbury Crescent Rolls - (2) $0.25/1 coupons

(2) Pepperidge Farm Goldfish - No coupons! My kids love them!

$1.50 items:

(4) Scott Paper Towel Rolls - (1) $1.00/4 coupon

(2) Betty Crocker Cookie Pouches - (2) $0.50/1 coupons

Hi There - I am new to all of this and I stumbled onto your site from Crystal's blog. I too live in Cincinnati and I so appreciate all of your hard work - it is so inspiring to see all of your lovely ladies saving so much money!
My husband and I are trying to start a family and figure now is as good a time as ever to begin saving all we can to prepare. So thank you for your ideas! I will be back for some more inspiration. Wish me luck and lots of savings...

I'm new to your site. Great blog!
What a great deal you got here! Wow! We don't have that store down here in FL. And they don't double coupons ANY where around here :-(.
I added you to my reader, so I'm looking forward to checking back in.

Thanks for sharing all the great info!
