My Blog

My blog has morphed over the years into different things. It is a place to learn about saving money, product reviews, cooking, gardening, and homesteading. It can take you to whatever has my attention at the moment and then back to the day to day. I hope you will learn something here and come back often.

Coupons and Deals

I am trying to find the energy to head to Kroger. I got up this morning feeling better. I took a shower, got dressed and then my energy bombed. I changed clothes again and went to bed. I slept for about 5 hours. I really want to go and buy something to cook for a Valentine's dinner since we are not eating out anymore. I just don't know if my body will cooperate. So, here I go. I'm going to try. I'll let you know how it goes.

Here you can print Kellogg’s coupons.

Ok, I made it to Kroger. I hate going on Saturday! It is so crazy in there. It was not the best time for me to shop anyway because when I got about half way through I felt my energy draining again. I had a hard time focusing on what I was supposed to be buying. By the time I left I didn't care if I had coupons or not! After I finally checked out and got out to the truck, I found that my neighbors in the parking lot had parked so close that I couldn't load my groceries. I had to put them in the back of the truck. This was not a big deal except my receipt blew out on the way home so I don't have an exact count of how much I saved.

This shopping trip was mainly for things that I don't normally buy because it was our Valentine's meal. I did get a few good deals that I will tell you about though.

Bic Razors - Kroger has BOGO and I had a coupon for BOGO so I got 2 packs of men's razors ($6.99 each) and 2 packs of women's razors ($3.99 each) for FREE! Savings $21.96

1 Kroger coupon for free salad dressing - savings $1.99

Discounted loaf of sourdough bread to go with dinner (we usually don't eat white bread) $.99 savings $2.00

Broccoli and cauliflower sale $.99 each

Rosarita refried beans on sale $1 minus $.50/2 coupon doubled= 2 for $1.

OH...I almost forgot! I got the same deal on the Mahatma Yellow Rice that I got the other day PLUS someone was nice enough to lay a coupon down in front of the rice! So, I bought 6 bags for $1.25.

Since I don't have my receipt I can't tell you exactly what I saved but I know it was over $30. My final bill was $40 and some change so I would say it was a good percentage saved!

Be sure to get a Sunday paper tomorrow and cut out the coupons! There's no better time than now to get started!

    "For some reason, I can't comment on your blog.
    The best day to shop at Kroger is actually on Tuesday because they have already set their computer to ring up the prices for the sale that will start the next day. The computer will automatically charge you the cheapest price so if something is on sale this week and will be cheaper next week, it will charge you next week's price!
    Also, be sure to load your Kroger card will the "extra" coupons on; and other sites listed there. I typically save $80-$150 with my coupons when I shop. I don't always post my savings to my blog but you can check out this post:;

    I have also posted pics of my coupon binder in my FB pics if you are interested.

    I am VERY passionate about helping families save money on the groceries and household needs. We must learn to be good stewards of what God has provided for us!

    God bless you!"
