I had a great time yesterday sitting with my friend Natalie. I was trying to teach her what I am doing and show her how she can save money on her grocery bill. She was very excited to get started. We had a printer glitch, but I did show her how to load the e-coupons at Kroger. Very exciting to think you are saving money and what you can do with that money.
I went to Kroger today to go shopping. I needed get the free items I won during the March madness game before they expired. I had a few things I knew I needed to buy and I was going to check on some items to see if they had good prices or sales on items for coupons that were about to expire. My Kroger changed their official coupon policy to accept e-coupons with manufacturer coupons. They did this anyway just now it is official. I was so excited to hear this. I wanted a copy of their coupon policy, but they didn’t have one they could hand to me.

I spent $20.22 for $57.01 worth of food. In the picture above the right hand side of the picture is all of the items I received for free. I am starting to average above a 60% savings on every trip. I am now going into month two of savings and still trying to get my percentage higher and buying healthier and more organic when I can. I still went a little over budget this week, but I still was able to buy batteries and Vitamins and not totally blow my budget.
Let me know how you did this week? Did you find any great deals?
