I stopped in at Kroger today and checked out the clearance items. This is what I found. Del Monte tomatos 49 cents a can, I had 2 $1/4 coupons so I bought 8 cans and paid $2 total for them. Good Earth Pasta Mix was on clearance for $2.49, I had $1/1 coupon so I paid $1.49 for this item. Fleischmans Pizza yeast was 75 cents for a pack of three, I had 2 -55 cents/1 pack so I bought 2 packs total paid for these items was 0. (The coupon didn't double because it would have been more than the item was priced at, this sometimes happens on clearance items). 2 packs of peanut butter crackers, Kroger brand, so I didn't have a coupon for these. A pack of ground sirloin that was reduced to $6.98. Keebler crackers 1 box, I had a $2/Yogurt when you purchase these crackers and I bought a Splitz pack at $2.15 plus had 50 cents off this which doubled to $1, so I made 75 cents off this deal. 3 cans of Rotel, I had $1/3 cans, a coupon for $1.50 off any brand chips if you bought Velveeta cheese and 2 cans of Rotel, this made my chips free (store brand) and my Rotel 66 cents a can, no coupon on the Velveeta (gettng ready for Christmas). Now for the find of the day. Kroger had Schick Extreme 3 Disposable Razors B1G1 free and I had 3 - B1G1 free coupons plus 4 - $2/1 Razor coupons and 2 - $1/1 Razor coupons which made these razors free plus I made $10 with the coupons. I had to get a manager to approve the last transaction at the store I shop at, but they see me in there all the time and the bottom line is whatever coupon they take they get paid for. My total grocery bill was $73 and change and I ended up paying $17.84 which included tax. Total savings was 79%
Don't throw away your expired coupons...our military overseas can use them in the commissary. They are good for 6 months for them. Got this site and pick a base, you don't have to adopt them just send the coupons. Look at the hints for mailing them.

I spent $2.67 on my CVS trip this morning and this is what I got.....2 - 12 packs of Coca Cola @ $2.99/12 pack, 6 - 15 Piece Mentos @ $1.79 each, 2 - NYC eyeshadow regular price $4.99 but on clearance at $1.25/each and a CVS spray sanitizer for hands. Here are the coupons I had 6 - $1/1 Mentos, 1 - B1G1 free on the NYC, Free coupon on the hand sanitizer. CVS had the Mentos at B1G1 free so even tho they were $1.79 each I had 79 cents leftover on each Mentos plus 3 of the Mentos @ $1.79 to apply towards my coke purchase. I saved $32.89
