Kroger's $5 off 10 Participating Items...

Kroger has a new Mega Savings Event going right now from October 31, 2012, through November 14, 2012, for us here in the Texas/Louisiana region. When you buy 10 participating items you will get $5 automatically discounted at the register.

I was pretty pumped about this shopping trip for two reasons. First, I've been away from couponing whole-heartedly for the last six weeks, and I'm having symptoms of withdrawal...kind of like when I haven't had coffee in the morning. Secondly, (under zip 77477) is loaded with fresh new coupons that coincided with this savings event.

So off to Kroger we went this morning with a stack of freshly printed and clipped coupons tucked inside my list.  This is what I came out with (after I did the Huggies deal posted HERE in which I bought two Goodnights and one Huggies wipes package, earning $5 off my next purchase....this was my next purchase!)...
Here's a breakdown of my trip:
Mega Items:
  • 2 Digiorno Pizza--$4.77 each ($.50 savings each)
    • Coupon: $1.00/2 from 10/28/12 SS
    • Earned $1.00 catalina good on next shopping visit
  • Johnson & Johnson Lotion--$2.50 ($.69 savings)
  • 2 Skintimate Shave Gel--$1.50 ($1.39 savings each)
  • 2 Edge Shaving Lotion--$1.50 ($1.39 savings each)
  • Velveeta--$5.38 ($.50 savings)
  • Nestle Pure Life Water--$3.49 ($1.50 savings)
  • 5 cans Campbell's Cream of Chicken Soup--$.50 each (savings $.75 each can)
  • 4 cans Campbell's Cream of Mushroom Soup--$.50 each (savings $.75 each can)
    • Coupon: $.40/4 from 9/16/12 SS (exp. 11/4/12)
  • All! Liquid Detergent--$2.99 ($1.28 savings)
    • Coupon: $1.00/1 from 9/30/12 SS (exp. 11/11/12)
I made a counting error according to my coupons on the Campbell's Cream of Chicken and Mushroom and ended up paying $.50 each on two of the cans instead of the reduced price. It's called "Shopping with Kids while Couponing." 

Overall I spent $49.84, earned $1.75 back in catalina (explained HERE) good on my next purchase; while saving $40.05! AWESOME!! Yeah, Baby! I'm back and boy, does it feel good!!
