Savings Saturday

Remember last week how I told you I started searching on ebay for coupons? Well, I purchased some (well more like 20) to see how I liked it. I think I'm hooked. Oh the high of leaving the store with 20 tubes of toothpaste. Yes, you heard me 20 tubes of toothpaste. I'm not planning on buying anymore toothpaste for at least another year.

So, here's what I did: I bought 20 $0.75 off Crest coupons for $0.99.

Crest Toothpaste $16.80 (20 tubes)
Deal: Kroger had Crest on sale for $2.34 (reg. $2.99) - $1.50 ($0.75 doubled) = $0.84 ea.
Get a better deal at Kroger this week if you buy 10 Crest use 10 coupons making it $2.00, your total will be $0.50 ea.

Kraft Singles $1
Deal: Giant Eagle has Kraft Singles on sale for $2 (reg. $3.79) and I used $1.00 off coupon = $1.00 ea.

Green Giant Frozen Veggies $1.00 for two
Deal: Giant Eagle has Green Giant veggies on sale for $1.00 and I used a $0.50 off two coupon (which doubles) = $1.00

Without Coupons: $65.59

With Coupons: $19.79 (includes $0.99 for my coupons I ordered)

Percent Savings: 70%

I so wished we had a kroger; the only grocery stores we have are Walmart, or the super small local stores that have to hike their prices up to compete with Walmart.
