This week, I did my weekly shopping at Kroger. A successful trip that saved me $57.14 on a $113.00 bill. Between double coupons, store coupons, and store sales/savings you can save lots on your bill getting some items for free or for very little. During the sales is the time to stock up. 
French’s Mustard is 4 for $5.00 ($1.25 each). Get the coupon for $.50 on French’s Mustard (print as many as you can). Doubled means $1.00 off each so you’re getting the mustard for $.25. Cattleman’s Barbecue Sauce is on sale – 10 for $10.00. On the French’s site, there a coupon for $.50 off which makes it free! You have to buy the 10 items, but print as many of these as you can, it’s not like it’ll go bad!
Kraft Mayonnaise (even the olive oil mayonnaise) is on sale for $2.49. A coupon from the Sunday paper was for $2.00 off two, so you pay $2.98 for two large containers of Mayonnaise.  Hunt’s Ketchup is on sale 10 for $10.00. I had a coupon from the Sunday paper for $.40 off a bottle which made the price $.20 after doubling!
Kroger also uses a system for loading coupons onto your Bonus Card. You can register for it at This week, there is a coupon for $.60 off Kroger salad dressing – which also happens to be on sale 10 for $10.00! 
I also found some special deals at Bi-Lo that only last through tomorrow and only while supplies last. Southern Home split chicken breasts are $.99 per pound; Maxwell House coffee is $4.99 and I know you’ve got a coupon somewhere for that! And how about Jumbo Shrimp 26-30 Count Frozen Pescanova for $2.99.
Bi-Lo also has a buy one, get one free section. Here’s a deal on Yoplait Yoplus or Fiber One 4 Pack Assorted Varieties ($2.60 for 2) and go to for a $1.00 off coupon. Land O Lakes Butter with Olive Oil is 2 for $3.00 and you can get $.55 coupon on (you have to register but it’s worth it).
