Kroger taste test

I recently got an invitation from Kroger to do a snack taste test with Zek. They sent me 6 cannisters of different flavored snacks for him to try. I had to login to the web with the results of each test. They wanted to know his reaction to the snack, did he like it, stuff like that. It was a lot of fun. I even got 6 cans of free snacks. Kroger is awesome!!
I think he liked it :-)

I do all my shopping at Kroger now!!

For those of you that don't know, I've been doing a lot of shopping lately at Kroger. My mom and sister-in-law went to a coupon class several months ago (I was supposed to go, but one of my kids got sick). Anyway, I started going to myself and learning the process on my own. It was hard at first looking through every ad and getting a Sunday paper and cutting coupons. I'm thinking who has time to do this? But over time I got better and better at it. I became obsessed. It's more like a hobby now. Another added bonus is your Kroger points. We have saved 50 cents a gallon before. The next time we need gas, we should have 70 cents a gallon off. My best Kroger trip yet was $147 worth of stuff and I only paid $36. Amazing, isn't it? Now I am the biggest skeptic there is and I used to see this stuff on tv and I thought whatever, there's no way! But now I"m easily saving my family 50% every week, sometimes more. I do a lot of shopping at Walgreens and CVS, too. I get stuff free all the time. I never buy toothpaste, deodorant, soap, or dishwashing liquid anymore b/c I can get it free. I'm begging you to go the website I linked above and check it out. And give it time. It takes time, but to me now it is soooooo worth it. Yesterday, I got $316 worth of stuff and paid $146. Not bad, huh? Here's a picture of everything I got free (in case you're interested :-)
