Kroger for $6.44

Kroger is running their "Buy 10, Get $5" deal again this week. On Tuesday I did two deals, buying 20 items from the list. I had coupons for all these items; most of the coupons were for $1 off, or doubled to $1 off. Some of them were for $1 off 2 items. Here is what I bought, with final prices after sale, coupons, and the 50 cents off each item.
Day 1
12 cans Carnation milk, free
2 Betty Crocker potatoes, 20 cents ea
3 4-pk DanActive yogurt, 50 cents ea
2 4-pk Activia yogurt, 50 cents ea
1 Land O' Lakes butter, $1.50
I also bought 2 bakery items on clearance

My total including tax for everything pictured: $6.44.

Day 2
On Wednesday I went back and did two more deals at a different Kroger. I bought:
6 Deer Park water 3L, free
1 Betty Crocker potatoes, 65 cents
3 Nestle chocolate chips, $1 ea
3 Activia yogurt, 50 cents ea
3 DanActive yogurt, 50 cents ea
2 10-pk razors, free
2 Colgate toothpaste, 25 cents ea
I also bought 2 feta cheese on clearance

On this shopping trip I spent $10.19

How much of your deal will your family use and how much is for charity?

Good question, Big Sis. For the family, I am keeping:
all the yogurt
butter
most or all of the bottled water
chocolate chips
some canned milk
For charity:
some canned milk
most or all of the potatoes
maybe some water
all the razors
all the toothpaste

hi :) i have a question how did you get the water for free? we spent a good amount of money every month buying water so if i can get it for free that would be good. thank you

Lala,
It is unusual to get bottled water, or any groceries, for nothing. In this case, I used the Kroger "Buy 10 items, get $5 off" deal they were advertising for the week. I other words, when I bought 10 items from their special list, I saved 50 cents on each of those items. The Deer Park 3L bottles of water were on sale for $1 each. I had a fistful of mfr coupons for 50 cents off 2 bottles. Kroger doubles them, so it was $1 off 2 bottles. Doing the math on all that: $1 per bottle on sale, minus 50 cents per bottle from the special deal, minus 50 cents per bottle from the mfr coupons, comes out to nothing. Free water!
