Savings Adventures

Wow, is it a great week to go Krogering! I’m working out specific deals, but check out this ad: http://cincinnati.inserts2online.com/customer_Frame.jsp?divID=014&drpStoreID=00434

Kroger has a HUGE, absolutely HUGE selection of foods on sale this week. Using Kraft, Betty Crocker, Pillsbury, Kellogg’s and more, buy 10 items get $5 off your total purchase. That’s BEFORE coupons. So all you coupon queens, get to work!

Now, I’d also like to recommend another deal site–www.moneysavingmom.com. She’s a great resource for CVS, Walgreens and Kroger deals, along with advice on printable coupons, freebies and more. In fact, she posts how she feeds her family of five on $35 a week. Yes, that’s right, she feeds a family of five on $35 a week! Her tips are great and she really breaks it down for you. I recommend all you deal hunters check her out!

Last, here’s my freebie tip of the week–free Hefty ziploc bags at Walmart, Target and more! Check the trial/travel size section of your local store–if you find a travel package of Hefty ziplocs (7 per bag, quart sized, zipper lock and TSA approved), pick up a few. At my stores they are .97. Let the cashier ring them up, then turn them over and rip off the coupon on the back of the box! Yes, you will look like a total loon, but there is a method to the madness! On the back of the box is a coupon for $1 off ANY Hefty product. So when you hand over those coupons, your Hefty ziplocs will be FREE! But please, don’t clear the shelves–leave some for your neighbors and fellow deal shoppers to find!

Oh, I almost forgot! Stop by Walgreens tomorrow with your empty ink cartridges. For tomorrow only, they will be refilling one ink cartridge per customer for FREE! Color or black ink, doesn’t matter! Go get those refills!
