I decided to do a quick post this morning showing you what I got at Kroger this morning. I also wanted you to be able to see how much better your savings are using coupons when you wait for a sale. I generally only use a coupon if I can use it with a sale. So yes, that means I do throw coupons away. That was hard for me at first! I was the type that if I had a coupon I thought I had to use it but I've learned more coupons will come and sales to use them with. So, back to my shopping trip. Today Kroger is having a one day sale on select Kelloggs products. I got everything in the picture above for $9.84. The awesome thing is that Kelloggs has a rebate going right now that when you purchase 10 Kelloggs products you get $10.00 back. So actually the cereal was better than FREE!!! Here's a breakdown of what I got.
3 boxes Kelloggs Rice Krispies - $1.69 ea
used 3 - $1/1 coupon from Vocal Point - final price $.69 ea.
5 boxes Kelloggs Special K w/blueberries - $1.86 ea.
used 5 - $1/1 printable - final price $.86 ea.
2 boxes Kelloggs Frosted Mini Wheats - $1.99 ea.
used 1 - $1.50/2 printable - final price $1.24 ea.
1 box GM Honey Nut Cheerios - $2.99
used 1 - $1/1 printable and $1/1 via cellfire - final price $.99
My out of pocket cost for Kelloggs products was $8.85. If I figure off the $10 I'll get back from the rebate I'll have actually made $1.15!!
If I wouldn't have waited to use these coupons with a sale my out of pocket cost after coupons would have been $31.02.
What kind of deal did you get at Kroger today? I'd love to hear about it!
