Click here for my post for this week's (04/20-04/26) Kroger Ad Matchup with current coupons (Cincy Region).

It's another week of the 10 for $10 sale at Kroger - there are some decent stockpile items, but nothing I really needed for our family.

Here's my trip from Monday, 4/20:

Spent: $93.10

Saved: $67.69, or 42%

I'm under budget for the week ($100), but I think the festivities of celebrating Easter at our house may have pushed me over budget for the month overall. Time to get caught up on my number crunching!

One of my best finds yesterday was Kroger Active Lifestyle Yogurt Smoothies on sale 3/$2.00, or $0.67 each. I haven't seen yogurt smoothies on sale for a while so I bought a bunch. Yum!

I also stocked up on FREE with doubled coupon (see below) McCormick Grill Mates and several Kroger Value spices which were all priced at $1.00 as well.

And...I still can't believe I paid full price for toilet paper! Oh, how I miss the Cottonelle 4 pk!

Don't forget, if you bought a ham or a turkey this month to go check out the $20 rebate on either when you buy $40 of Unilever products (and you can buy these over multiple trips in April). Full details on this rebate as well as a list of participating products can be found right here.

Coupons I used for my trip + current price of item before coupon; note that my Kroger offers unlimited doubled coupons and doubles coupons to a maximum doubled value of $1.00.

:: Buy1Get1FREE Kellogg's Shredded Wheat, Vocalpoint mailer coupon (sale price $2.18 ea)

:: $1.00/1 Coffeemate liquid or powder printable here (sale price 32 oz $2.50)

:: $1.00/2 Lawry's Marinade, RP 04/05 (sale price $1.00 ea)

:: (3) $0.75/1 McCormick's Spice or Blend, RP 04/05

:: Buy1Get1FREE Welch's Aqua Juice printable here (regular price $3.79)

:: $1.50/1 Welch's Aqua Juice, Kroger Catalina

:: $1.00/4 Rice-a-Roni, RP 03/08 (sale price $1.00 ea)

:: FREE up to $1.29 Franks Hot Sauce, SS 03/01 (regular price $1.19)

:: $0.75/2 BumbleBee Chunk Light Tuna packets, Kroger Catalina (regular price $1.49 ea)

:: $1.00/2 Dole Salad Blends, Kroger Mailer coupon (regular price $1.28 ea)

    Hello. I am a new lurker and rarely post anything on any page, but I felt bad that you paid full price for the toilet paper. There was a $0.50 off coupon (doubled at my Kroger) in the either the RedPlum or SS section this past Sunday for a 4-count pack of Angel Soft. Since they are 10/$10, I got mine for free. :-)

    Love your site! Very interesting and full of great ideas!

    Anon: I didn't get that coupon in my inserts; I'm in the greater Cincinnati area. Coupons differ in value/availability by region.

    However...it's good to know that coupon is out there; I can order some from a coupon clipping service and get a bunch for free.

    Thanks for the heads up and for commenting!

    Ultimate Deals: Thanks for the kind words! I'm still SOOO behind on finishing my pages; hoping to get better and better!
