So today I have had a chance to glance at the new Kroger ad, there are a few things I am pretty interested in. I am trying to start my stockpile so I really only buy things when they are on sale. I feel confident that I am really close and am starting to feel like the time spent is paying off.

Yesterday I went to Target. They have a sale on Ore Ida potatoes, buy 2 get one free. I had some coupons for $1.50 off two that were about to expire and even though this was not the best deal I have seen I wanted to take advantage of it since I have no frozen potato at this time. I had 3 coupons, I was wondering if I could use all three yet only take advantage of the buy two get one free deal. It worked! Unfortunately I can't find my receipt so I can't give the exact totals, but I am happy with it! I can say though, I had a TERRIBLE experience at check out. I have noticed that Target is not overly coupon friendly. Since they don't double I don't go there all that often and when I do it is for very specific items so it is getting annoying that almost every time I am there I have a bad experience. Grrr

Oh and I got the Kroger My Magazine in the mail today. This theme is Spring Make Overs...there are a few coupons that have potential. I had hoped for some spring cleaning coupons because I need to stock up on cleansers, getting kinda low and I prefer not to pay much (if anything)for cleansers.

I thought I would share some of the blogs that I follow. Here are two that are in my area so I love to see when they find deals because I know they have the same stores that I have.

So today I hit up Target...several times! I just can't help it, I LOVE the SOBE Life Waters and the deal is just too good to pass up. Ok so here is how it works.

Target has the Sobe Life Water on sale for 10/$10. Buy 10 and get a $5 Target GC. You can print a BOGO coupon at and then on you can get a $0.50 coupon.
Sooooo if you can manage to print 5 of the BOGO and 10 of the Target coupons you end up getting the items free and earning the gift card. Hey a 5 buck profit is not too shabby. I have hit up every computer I can locate to get the coupons. There is a limit on printing them, but be creative and enjoy the deal!

Taking it the extra mile

OK, so I have been a diligent couponer for well over a year now. When we both were laid off and we had to figure out how to make ends meet without running broke I had to get creative. I read a couple of blogs and started couponing. I only shopped at one store and thought I was doing a good job. Welllll I was doing an ok job. I think I am much more savy now. I shop at several stores, have a super duper storage system for coupons. Used to be I scored a free item now and again, but now I score several free items every week!! I have started a small stockpile and I feel in the next few months I will really be see the beneft of all my hard work.

So I thought I would start a blog and with this blog share deals as I find them and help people stretch the grocery budget even further.

Feel free to subscribe and make any comments, in fact PLEASE comment. If you find a steller deal share! :)
