Kroger had a deal on General Mills products this week and thank goodness they did! My fiance bought a gallon of milk a few days ago and we definitely needed some cereal to help us use it all up before it expires. The items were 4 for $6, which is a steal by itself, but of course I used some coupons and made it even better. I had to break it up into two transactions since they were only allowing the extra savings once per transaction. 

1 box of Cheerios
2 boxes of Honey Nut Cheerios
1 box of Curves cereal
1 box of Fiber One cereal
2 boxes of Nature Valley bars
1 box of Curves granola bars

Coupons: 
$1 off 3 General Mills cereals
$.70 off Fiber One cereal
$.75 off Curves cereal
$.75 off 2 Nature Valley bars
$.50 off Curves granola bars which was doubled.

I paid $8.29 total which figures out to $1.04 a box! My receipts tell me I saved $14.82.

CVS went pretty well. I guess I miscalculated though, since I wound up paying $2.59 out of pocket instead of a couple of cents. The reason was that I had a ECB for $2.99 and the cashier told me the register wouldn’t take it since it was more than the amount owed. I really wish I would have figured it out better before getting up to the register so I could have bought another little bag of mini eggs to bring my total up high enough. Oh well, I’ll just add it to the experience pile.

1 Garnier Fructis shampoo $2.99, minus $1 coupon
1 Colgate Total Advanced $2.99, minus $.75 coupon
1 Lypsyl lip balm $2.99
1 CVS Acetaminophen $3.69, minus my free CVS acetaminophen coupon (which the cashier rang up as $3.99)
1 bag of Cadbury mini eggs for filler, $.65

Minus $5 ECB

I got back a total of $7.98 in ECB PLUS I got my $10 ECB for taking a survey for CVS Advisor Panel. That $10 more than makes up for the fact that I paid a few dollars more than I wanted tonight 🙂 .

Great job! I get confused with the Extra bucks sometimes because it also takes off some tax in my state. So far I haven’t had any big problems though. I don’t mind paying a few $$ in real money to CVS since I get so many other things for free.

Thanks! Yeah, I’m definitely not complaining considering I couldn’t even have gotten the lip balm for how much I paid for all of it.

Candace, it really looks like you’re tearing it up as well, according to your budget for March. And that includes diapers!
