So my scenario earlier was unfortunately inaccurate. I didn’t realize that the cheap boxes of ziploc bags were Hefty brand, so I couldn’t use my ziploc coupons. Also, it completely slipped my mind that the Hangover 2 doesn’t come out until Tuesday, plus the store in Bedford didn’t have the items I wanted/needed so I had to go to the Madison Heights store which will only apply the % off coupons to non-sale items (whereas Bedford automatically applies it to the whole order regardless of the coupon language). Long story short, I still got items we needed for a relatively good price.

Hubby is going to get me some Hefty coupons so I can stockpile a few more. =)
Deals at Kroger this week were pretty good as well. I ended up getting 16 packs of disposable razors for free, as well as a ton of groceries! My total cost after coupons was $37.67. The cashier accidentally entered the wrong amount on one of the coupons, so the total should have been about $6.00 or $7.00 less, but it was late, he was nice, and he added an extra coupon to my order so I didn’t feel like complaining. Total savings was $125.41; a 78% savings!
