On Saturday She Will Shop ...

... and did she shop or what!? First stop was Kroger to take advantage of the Mega Deal event. Bella spent out of pocket $41.40 and according to the receipt saved $73.09. Here is the list, no pictures today. Unfortunately, Bella was not in a cooperative mood, not seeing the point in arranging things from the bags to the table and then into the kitchen. She was tired, the baby was crying and the toddler kept yelling about a red apple. What about The Husband, we hear you ask? Well, he was carting bags from the car into the garage, and muttering about waiting for red apples. Bella gave up looking for red apples after the first five bags. Just an ordinary moment in BellaLand (ha!). Anyway, back to the shopping. Here is the shopping list, in case you are heading on out to Krogers and would like some inspiration:

Non Mega Deal Items

3 Bounty Basic 1.09 - .25 MQ trp = .34 each
1 Bounty Basic 1.09 - 1.00 MQ = 0.09
2 Milk (Gallon) = 2.49 each
3 Johnson Buddies Bar 1.09 - 1.00 MQ = 0.09 each
1 Kroger Comforts Diaper 5.99 - 3.00 MQ = 2.99
1 Kroger Toddler Wipes 1.00 - 1.00 MQ = FREE
2 Cottonelle Toilet Paper 1.19 - .50 IP - .25 LC = -0.06 each
2 Cottonelle Toilet Paper 1.19 - .50/2 MQ = 0.69 each
3 Red Apples = 1.90

Mega Deal Event Items
3 Peperidge Farm Garlic Toast 1.99 - .40 MQ dbl - .50 MDE = .69 each
3 Country Crock Calcium 1.49 - .50 MQ dbl - .50 MDE = -0.01 each
3 Country Crock Original 1.49 - .25 MQ trp - .50 MDE = 0.24 each
3 Pills. Toaster Strudel 1.99 - .35 MQ trp -.50 MDE = 0.44 each
9 J&J Baby Items 2.99 - 3.00/3 MQ -.50 MDE = 1.49 each
2 Kotex 2.99 - .75 MQ - .50 MDE = 1.74 each
4 Whisker Lickins .99 - 1/2 MQ - .50 = -0.01 each
3 Purex 2.99 - .35 MQ trp -.50 MDE = 1.44 each

Then Bella went for round two, to pick up 10 more items (you are only allowed the MDE three times per transaction). This time only spending $3.53. Here goes:

3 Country Crock Calcium 1.49 - .50 MQ dbl - .50 MDE = -0.01 each
3 Country Crock Original 1.49 - .25 MQ trp - .50 MDE = 0.24 each
3 Pills. Toaster Strudel 1.99 - .35 MQ trp -.50 MDE = 0.44 each
1 Kroger Baby Body Wash 1.99 - .50 MDE = 1.49

Before running home, a quick stop also at Walgreens, for three of the Huggies Diapers Jumbo Packs. These were $10 each (minus 2 $5 IPs and $3 Ip). Bella's total was $18.50 and she received a $10 register reward toward her next purchase.

Phew! Bella has to dash now, she has a chicken to tend to in the oven. Perhaps if she is in a better mood she MAY post a few pictures for our readers ... perhaps.




Key:
MDE = Mega Deal Event Discount;
MQ = Manufacturer Coupon;
LC = Loadable Coupon to store card;
IP = Internet Printable Coupon
