Not So Extreme Couponing at Kroger... What Can You Get for $10.00?

This one is once again a bit too large to post on my Facebook feed.

I've been playing all week with the catalinas that Kroger has been offering and having a lot of fun with it.  The trip that I did on Monday generated 3, $5.00 off your next order catalinas and I paid a bit over $14.00 out of my pocket.  This trip was even MORE fun because I only paid $9.42, received $15.00 back in more catalinas, saved 80% on this order and now have 526 fuel points which means I'll get 50 cents off per gallon even if I don't return to Kroger for the rest of the month.  Like THAT'S going to happen!

I have one more trip set up for tomorrow that will hopefully be ZERO out of pocket and will still generate a couple of more catalinas so I can use them on the next sale.

Here's what I got:

8 boxes of Betty Crocker potatoes.  On sale 10 for $10.00.  Used 4 different $0.50/2 coupons and paid $0.50 per box.

2 boxes of fruit snacks.  On sale 2 for $4.00.  Used 1 $0.50/2 coupon and paid $1.50 per box.

1 4 pack Angel Soft toilet paper.  Regular price $1.19.  Used 1 $0.25/1 coupon from their website and paid $0.69 for the pack.

2 Marchan Yokisoba Ramen Noodle dinners.  On sale for $1.09 each.  Used 2 $0.50/1 coupons and paid $0.09 each.

2 Old El Paso soft tortillas and 1 can Old El Paso refried beans.  On sale for $1.25 each.  Used 1 $0.60/3 and paid $1.05 each.

2 packages of Pillsbury cookies.  On sale 2 for $5.00.  Used $1/2 from coupons.com and paid $2.00 each. There is a mail in offer for free pizza rolls on some of these packs.  I'll let you know what happens with that.  :)

2 Youplait Simplait Yougurt cups.  $0.90 each regular price.  Used 2, $0.30/1 and paid $0.30 each.

2 cans of Pillsbury crescent rolls.  On sale for $1.00 each.  Used 1, $0.40/2 coupon and paid $0.60 each.

1 Country Crock.  On sale for $1.50.  No coupon.

1, 3 pound bag of onions.  On sale for $1.79.  No coupon.

2 packages of Simple Truth Chicken Drumsticks.  Both on Manager's Special.  One pack was 1.53 pounds, $2.66 and the other 1.41 pounds and was $2.45.  Used 1, $1/1 Simple Truth Organic Chicken and paid $4.11 for both packs.

My total before coupons and card was $48.63.  I also used my 3, $5.00 off your next order catalinas that I received on Monday to only pay $9.42 for all of this at the register.  I also received another 3, $5.00 off your next order catalinas to use on my next shopping trip... which will actually be tomorrow.

I had a couple of people ask me what items I bought that were generating the catalinas.

In this order the potatoes, refried beans, soft tortillas, cookies and fruit snacks combined to generate 3 more catalinas.  The deal is for every 5 of those (and other items are included too) items will give you one $5.00 off catalina.

This sale only runs through Wednesday but I have a sneaking suspicion that there's another great catalina sale coming up again in the next week or two.
