Grocery shopping

Today I sat down (finally) and went through my coupons and the Kroger ad.  I got done with my work a little early and so I got there around 4:00.  It took me 45 minutes, but I found everything I was looking for.  Ended up getting 94 items…spending $98 and saving….

…wait for it…

…$99 !!!!!

This is the first time I have actually saved more than I spent.  I got my first comments from the cashier and bag boy about how much I was saving.  they really got into it…though the cashier was “I need to do this right because I don’t want another override like that other woman” – “she saved like $200! in coupons!” (okay I have something to strive for!).
