March Madness

The Richmond Spiders did pretty well this March but we're out of the game now. No matter whether or not your favorite team makes it to the NCAA Sweet 16 we can all take advantage of the great deals at Kroger. Joy and I did the grocery shopping yesterday afternoon and we did some stocking up. Nothing excessive and only 2 boxes of pasta. So far. I might go back and get some more because it's hard to beat .49/box.

I also found some great organic yogurt on sale which I wouldn't have noticed if it wasn't for a post by Dana at Mrs. Moneysaver. In fact, nothing I got was bought at full price and the only thing that wasn't on special or part of the March Madness promotion was a box of fruit snacks that I had a $1.50 off coupon for from Vocalpoint.

What did I get? Well, I followed the March Madness sales and The Grocery Game and this is what I got: some yogurt, bologna for school lunches, Pop-Tarts, pasta, deoderant, apple juice, Pull-Ups, crackers, and cheese. The total savings was $33.06 or 47%. Not a personal best but it was certainly fulfilling to see those dollars come flying off the register at the end.

Could I have bought more? Sure, but my pantry is in good shape right now. I decided to take a down-the-middle approach and take advantage of the great deals but not get so much stuff that it would be uncomfortable to live here, you know.
