Sorry to everyone that doesn't have a Kroger near them but I want to tell you about my Kroger shopping trip today.

Here are the deals.

When you buy $10 worth of school supplies you get a $2.00 catalina for your next shopping trip. The 24 pack of crayons that are marked down to 25 cents can be used towards this deal. The beauty of it is the cash register computer is using the original price of $1.99 for the crayons towards the $10 deal. So I bought six packages at 25 cents each so total of $1.50 and got a $2.00 coupon back. MONEY MAKER
I have had many people do this at different Krogers and it worked can't guarantee it.

Next deal- Buy one Dr. Pepper or AW rootbeer ice cream toppers for $2.99 and receive $2.50 catalina for you next shopping trip. Once again worked for me but can't guarantee it.

You will see a display of a school bus in the grocery store that has a coupon brochure on it. In the brochure their is a coupon for $2.00 off school supplies when you buy two boxes of Cheez-Its. Match this with the Coca-Cola deal of buy three 12 pk and receive two boxes of Cheeze-its for free and the crayon deal to get another $2.00 off your order.

Kroger also has a mega deal of buy 4 participating products and receive $4.00 off your order. This means that you will get $1.00 off each item in the end. If you have coupons these are great deals.
This was my deal.
I bought four bottle of Gillette Body Wash. I used two buy one get one free coupons from a Sunday paper.
4 at $2.99 each $11.96 then I received $4.00 off making the total $7.96 then the cashier gave me the original price off of $4.49 with the two coupons so I ended up making $1.00. When you use buy one get one free coupons sometimes the cashier will give you the original price not the sale price making the deal even extra special.

Remember the Kraft cheese deal of buy 5 Kraft cheese products receive a $5.00 catalina for you next shopping trip.

CVS deal-

Buy the CVS Beauty magazine for 99 cents use the $1.50 coupon for Kotex U that this week is FREE after extracare bucks. The magazine has many coupons and won't cost you anything because you are making $1.50 on the Kotex deal.
