Grocery Shopping at Kroger

Grocery Total: $51.22
Spent: $20.91 & Saved: $30.31
23 Coupons used


I needed to pick up a few items to make Dave (my husband) his favorite dessert for his birthday and I was hoping to pick up a few boxes (OK, a year's supply) of Kleenex. Check!

I hate to pay full price for anything, let alone something to wipe boogers on and toss directly into the trash... but we cannot live without Kleenexes!

Rarely do I EVER see a tissue sale, so when I can get 'the good stuff' for less than 75% of the original price, I stock up. To be honest, the last time I purchased tissues it was early January when Target was liquidating their Christmas surplus. I scooped up a few wintery themed boxes... but now that it is warm outside penguin decor boxes look silly.

With Kleenex included in the Mega Sale this week at Kroger, I spent my $.50/2 boxes of Kleenex coupons in conjunction with my other items to receive the $5 discount or extra $.50 off per item.

This week these 80 count boxes are on sale (down from $2.09/box) for $1.79/box. After the Mega Sale discount (purchasing 10 qualifying items) another $.50 is removed from your purchasing price= $1.29/box.

The $.50/2 coupon (from last weekend's paper) magically doubles at Kroger- allowing an extra $.50 off of each box = $.79/box.

But when you purchase 4 boxes in the same transaction you receive a Catalina (store reward money) for $1 off of your next purchase. (Lowering your box cost by another $.25... or really making each box cost $.54, or 75% off of regular retail!!!)

Could you use a few boxes?

For the Catalina...is it just 1 print per transaction? or did it print (4) $1 off catalina for you when you buy all the 16 in your picture?? Do you have to do seperate transactions??
