I just realized I didn't share a couple trips to Kroger for last month's budget...

After this trip I immediately put these receipts into my budget spreadsheet for the month because I knew it was the last trip I was making before the new month started and I wanted to keep them with all the others so I could do my budget update for groceries.  And since I just did that I realized I didn't post about either of these trips.  They were actually both the same day, at the same time even I just did them in two seperate transactions to utilize catalina coupons I was getting back.

So first I bought:
2 Dove men's body wash was $7.98 for $4.48
2 Dove men's bar soap was $6.00 for $3.50

My total spent was $8.96 and I saved $7.12, which was 47%.  Then when I purchased two Dove for men I got a $2 I got $4 in catalina's for that transaction.

My second transaction was:
1 Bounty was $10.28 for $5.49
1 Dawn dish soap was $2.99 for $.99
1 Tampax was $8.63 for $4.49
3 Blistex was $4.20 for $1.05
3 Gillette body washes was $12.96 for $4.09
1 Olay body wash was $3.89 for $.89
1 Crest toothpaste w/ attached toothbrush was $3.89 for $.89

And then I also had the $4 in catalina's from the first transaction.  So my total spent was $16.05 and I saved $25.28 or 64%.  I purchased 11 items for a $1.46 per item price...which for what I bough was pretty darn good I think.

So thanks to Kroger - Brian is set on body wash type stuff for a little while at least.
