There are many people that are weary of using coupons because they feel that they can only use them for unhealthy and processed foods. But this just isn’t the case! We have been able to get plenty of healthy foods for very very cheap utilizing coupons. Today was a perfect example. Here are my deals below, get to Kroger before Sunday so you can participate in this deal too!

2 Years of the Best Coupon Magazine Ever!

Check out Deal Seeking Mom to cash in on a two year subscription for $19.95.  I am not a magazine person, but this particular one is great because it is FULL of coupons every month.  I received several free items last month from great coupons from this magazine.  So if you are a coupon junkie, this is the magazine for you!

CVS Deals…

I was initially disappointed because my husband needed some more antacid pills.  Those things are expensive!!  I assumed that since I was going to have to pay so much out of pocket for those that my CVS posting would be a bust this week.  But, as always, CVS did not let me down.  First, when I scanned my card at the ‘magic machine’ out popped $2 in ECB’s!!  Second, I found two 25 count packs shrink wrapped together for only $8.19!!  So, with these two great finds, here is what I did:

Transaction #1:

Always Infinity Pads 18 count $4.98

Used $2 ECB’s from last week and $2 ECB’s from the machine.

OOP: $1.04

A Kroger Reminder

Just a reminder or if you haven’t noticed, coupons print off the back of your Kroger receipt. To the locals, there are a few coupons to El Portillo (right next to the Goodwill) and to Mexico Fiesta (right before the Dairy Queen on the right). So hold on to those receipts they may come in handy!

The Most Efficient CVS Shopping Trip Yet

I went to CVS at 9:15 p.m. Sunday night. Since they closed at 10, I knew I was risking making a wasted trip because the last few weeks I have not had much luck. I was either missing a coupon or they were out of stock of something. But tonight was amazing! I found everything I needed and we were out the door in 10 minutes! I also noticed that I think I have finally memorized the layout of the store after a month of being here in Kentucky. So maybe this is the start of more efficient trips to come!
