On the Cheap.


I am not an extreme couponer however I do clip , tear and load to the card to help the grocery bill.
I probably shop on a regular basis at a Grocery store some of you do not:

Why you ask???
I have been the Hubby still is and the Son is now a Kroger Employee.  In a way Kroger pays the mortgage and shopping there is.. well.. job security.
The Plant where my husband has been employeed at, for  32 years,is a Kroger owned plant.  The incentive is 10 percent off of Kroger product with the exception of meat and deli.  It racks up!
With that being said I most of the time go into Kroger with some what of a strategy and I want to share some of those with you .

This fullfilled 3 of the 5...I purchased 2 6 packs of Propel water they were 2.99 one of the packs had a peel off coupon for 2 bucks off of two...  that makes each one $1.99.
