Kroger has certainly earned my business for a long time coming! Tyler and I have been able to save a ton of money just buy shopping for our groceries there. Every month or so, they send us personalized coupon packages filled with coupons for things we usually buy. Some of the coupons are even good for something for free (i.e. free eggs, free bag of Lays potato chips, etc.). We use those coupons whenever they come in and I also clip coupons we get from our mailbox. Then every now and again, we'll get a good coupon printed with our receipt at the store. The other day, I got a 20% off any purchase at PayLess coupon!
This weekend, I've used a lot of the coupons and taken advantage of the tax free weekend to land some really good deals! Yesterday I went to the grocery store to pick up some snacks and things, and took a $36 bill down to $19. Then today, I got two pairs of shoes at PayLess for $30. They were doing the buy one get one half off [like usual] along with the 20% coupon and one of the pairs of shoes was on sale - SCORE!
Anyway- so the secret to great savings is Kroger :) We also save 0.10/gallon on gas when we get a certain number of points shopping... granted, 10 cents isn't a HUGE discount, but over time, it really adds up! YEAH!
Sorry for a boring post, but I was just really excited about saving money! hehe
