Using FREE Coupons Efficiently - Kroger 10/31

Not to toot my own horn or anything. HA! But I think I did really well yesterday at Kroger. Saved 68%, including laundry detergent, meat, produce, and K-cups! :)

So you all might know that Kroger is having a HUGE mega event sale, seriously I bought 30 items and still might go back for more.

Also you might see that I just bought coffee, but this time it was for the hubbs. I also stocked up on some stuff for baking this holiday season. :)

BTW have y'all checked out recently? There is a coupon for a FREE Playtex 2-pk Pacifiers with ANY Bottle purchase. Always check the clearance section when you have a coupon like this. I have scored AWESOME deals with these types of coupons and then I save them for shower gifts. ;)

Also, and this is for my friend more than anyone else really, a coupon for $0.50/1 Dial Hello Kitty Bar Soap! :D

So here is what I got:

***My daughter is seriously cute, right? ;)
