One of my best shopping trips ever!!

Today I went shopping for two weeks worth of groceries - mostly needed lean proteins, veggies, dairy and snack stuff for lunch boxes and school snacks. I had a pile of coupons, and a list made for Kroger's mega sale. They are having the buy 8 participating items, get $4 off instantly promotion. So I bought 40 of those items, used a coupon on every single one, plus e-coupons on several, and got $20 off right at the top of my receipt!!

The total before he scanned my Kroger plus card was as follows: purchased 115 items, total was $290-something. After the Kroger sales, ecoupons, mega promotion discounts, and paper coupons came off, my total out of pocket was $157! The receipt says I saved $135. And, I got a certificate for 25 bonus boxtops for D's school, and a $3.50 catalina for next weekend. I'm getting ready to email the Catalina company about not getting the Progresso soup Catalina - that should bring me more $ back, too!

I had to replace my coupon box again. This is #4. Luckily, I get them on sale, so it's not such a big deal! It's kind of fun, like changing your purse after a while!

What's your best shopping trip deal so far? I have to admit, my goal is to have one of those trips where you get $200 or $300 worth of groceries for $20! I'll keep clipping and using coupons til I get there! : )
