Kroger and Publix Today

I did well at both Publix and Kroger today. Here is a picture of my trip to Kroger:I spent $13.51 total at Kroger. I used 11 coupons, plus a coupon that I had loaded onto my Kroger card, but forgot about. That coupon made one box of Green Giant frozen veggies a money-maker! (Kroger paid me to take it home.) Here's my shopping list:
Birds Eye frozen veggies: 30 cents ea after sale and doubled coupons
Green Giant frozen veggies: 30 cents ea after sale and doubled coupons
Kroger frozen veggies: $1
1 lb boxes Domino sugar: 29 cents ea after sale and doubled coupons
McCormick pepper grinders: 50 cents ea after sale and doubled coupons
Kroger cheese: $1.67 each
bread: marked down to 79 cents and $1.79

I also transferred a prescription from another pharmacy and redeemed a competitor's coupon for a $30 gift card. Kroger loads gift cards onto your Kroger card, so that gave me $30 free. I chose not to spend it today, but to save it for our Thanksgiving turkey.

I didn't get a picture of my Publix purchases because I put them away before I thought to take one. This trip set me back $33:
3 5-lb bags Domino sugar: $1.29 ea after sale and doubled coupons
4 bottles Crisco olive oil: $2.50 ea after sale and coupons
3 cartons sour cream: 60 cents ea after BOGO sale
2 Muir Glen tomato paste: 9 cents ea after coupon
2 McCormick grinders: 50 cents ea after BOGO sale and doubled coupons
2 Carnation evap milk: 50 cents ea after sale and doubled coupon
Celestial Seasonings tea: $1.20 after BOGO sale and coupon
Lenders bagels: 96 cents after BOGO sale
fresh bananas, grapefruit, apples, and pears, most on sale: $11.86
Campbells Selects clam chowder: 1 cent after Mystery Coupon

Later in the week I hit Walgreen's twice:
10 boxes Royal gelatin, free after store coupons and mfr coupons
4 pkg shredded cheese, $1.50 ea

To get the Royal gelatin, which I donated to the food bank, I used Walgreen's in-ad coupon for 5 boxes/$1. I also found coupons in a blinkie at Publix for $1 off 5 boxes. Walgreen's allows the two coupons to be combined, making the gelatin FREE! I went to two stores and did this transaction twice.
