5/9: Kroger Mega Sale Trip 70% Savings

I have had a pretty busy week.  I wanted to get to Kroger last Friday, but it just didn't happen.  Even this morning I wasn't done making my list and gathering up my coupons, so I worked on that off and on all day, and went out shopping by myself when my husband got home.  He even made dinner while I shopped. =)

The store was pretty crowded, but they actually had just about everything I was looking for in stock.  I got three sets of Mega Sale items, and a few other things that I had coupons for that would double.

Here is everything I came home with tonight (click to enlarge):

Total Shelf Price:  $107.31
Total Sale Price:   $84.05 (before Mega Sale Savings)
Sale Price After Mega Sale deducted $15:   $69.05
Price Paid After Coupons:  $32.96 including tax for savings of  70%.  And that is including a $3.99 pack of cold drinks and a $5.49 pack of diapers!!  Woo!

This trip totally made up for my disappointments last night!  Want to hear the best part?  None of this actually came out of my grocery budget!  I paid for it with a $50 prepaid Visa debit card that came in the mail today.  It was a payment from an online survey session that I took a couple weeks ago through 20/20 Research.  If you are looking for some extra ways to earn online and supplement your families income, this is a good one to sign up with.  I don't get many email requests from them, but the ones I do get are usually well worth my time. This $50 payment was actually for a 20 minute one-on-one webcam session in the evening sitting on my couch!

Some of the highlights from my trip:
--6 Free boxes of Ronzoni Pasta
--2 Free bags of shredded cheese. If you got the FREE coupon from Kraft First Taste, use it now during the BOGO sale to get two for free!
--3 Free Safeguard Soaps (for my uncle!  They are his fav.)  One sale $1, used 3 $1/1 from 5/1 PG.
--Free floss if you have any more of the $1/1 Reach floss printables (no longer available).
--3 $0.19 packs of Mahatma rice  $1.19- $0.50/1 from 5/1 SS (doubled)
--2 $0.34 Sunny D  $0.89- $0.55/1 Printable (no longer available)
--4 cereal for $4.95 total used one $0.50/1 from 4/17SS and $2/3 from 5/1 Pepsico.
--Baby swiss cheez its for $1.25/box after $1/1 printables
--Heinz Vinegar for $0.69 each after $0.50/1 printables that expired today (they doubled)

If you have questions about the price of other items in the picture, just leave a comment and ask.  I had FREE coupons for several of the items that happened to be included in the Mega Sale.  One of them is actually for a review and giveaway that I will be posting soon.  Any guesses about what it will be?
