Kroger, Publix, and CVS

During this week of "not-so-hot" deals at many stores, I was able to find some deals for my family. Kroger isn't advertising it well, but they are continuing the "Buy 10, Get $5" from the last two weeks or so. Sunday's ad did make a small mention of it, but it failed to mention all that is included in the deal. Although this isn't everything I bought at Kroger this week, here is how I worked the deal (Note: I listed the price as AFTER the 50 comes off each item when I buy 10, not the shelf price. Then my coupons came off after that).
Deal #1 Kroger Buy 10, Get $5:
2 Activia drinkable 4-pks, $1.99, $1 Q on ea
2 Sargento cheese, $1.49, 80-cent Q on ea
1 Dannon plain yogurt quart, $1.99, no Q
1 Shedd's Spread, 99 cents, 50-cent Q
1 Daisy sour cream, $1.50, no Q
1 Lay's Kettle chips, $1.99, no Q
2 Betty Crocker potatoes, 99 cents, 80-cent Q on ea
Total OOP: $8.21

Deal #2 Kroger Buy 10, Get $5:
2 Scotch Bright Nail Saver sponges, $1.50, $1 Q on ea
6 Scotch Bright scrub sponges, 50-cents ea, 75 cents off 2 Q's
2 Ken's Steak House dressings, $1.49, $1/2 Q
Total OOP: $2.74

I also had a coupon for a FREE reusable shopping bag when I bought any two General Mills products listed on the coupon. I used the Betty Crocker potatoes to fulfill that. Other things I bought included marked down bread, marked down doughnuts, and lots of produce.

At Publix my best deals were:
Mystery Coupon item (tortilla chips)
Bonus size Zip Loc snack bags, $1.99, $1 Q
Thomas' English muffins, BOGO $1.50, $1 Q
Get a FREE reusable Publix shopping bag with purchase of any 2 items listed on coupon. I chose 2 bottles of Dawn dish soap at $1.99 each because it tied with Bounty as the lowest priced item on the list. I had 2 $1 coupons for Dawn. So I paid $1.98 for 2 bottles of Dawn and 1 shopping bag.

At CVS I got a few freebies:
Irish Spring body wash, $4.99, earn $4.99 ecb's, 50 cent Q
Colgate, $2.99, earn $2.99 ecb's, 75 cent Q
Aquafresh toothpaste, $1.85 on clearance, $2 Q from CVS machine
Dry Idea deodorant, $2.99, earn $2 ecb's, $2 Q
