Kroger Deals 1/20/13

I am a little obsessed with nail polish and make up.  I ran to Kroger last night to pick up a few groceries and I always look at the clearance section.  I saw a few things there, but then I decided to go look at the make up and there were a TON of great deals!  If you have a Kroger near you then you should definitely go check them out.  Most of these I got without using any coupons.  I didn't put my total, because I had groceries also, but I just wanted to show some of the deals.  I don't know the original price of all of them, but the Gel Starter Kit I had been wanting to try and I just couldn't pay almost $50 for it.  I was so happy when I saw it marked down!

Sensationail Gel Starter Kit $12.00 (normally $44.99!)
Sensationail Gel Polish $2.50
(2) Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail polish strips $2.25 ea
Kiss Nail Artist 3D Tip and Toe Art $1.25
CoverGirl Lash Exact $2.00
CoverGirl brow & eyemakers .92
I used the $3/2 CoverGirl coupon so I got both of them free :)
(3) Nicole by O.P.I nail polishes $1.60 ea
Revlon nail polish $1.00 - $1/1 coupon = free
Revlon Lipstick $2.00 - $1/1 coupon = $1
L'Oreal EverStrong Bodify Shampoo $2.09 - $2/1 coupon = .09
L'Oreal EverStyle Volume root lifting Spray $2.09 - $2/1 coupon = .09
L'Oreal EverSleek Humidity Defying Leave-In Cream $2.69 - $2/1 coupon = .69

Wow I have really been slacking lately.  It tends to get crazy towards the end of the year especially with the new position I have been doing at work.  I know that's no excuse everyone is busy.  I just tend to forget about the blog.  I'm not one of those awesome bloggers that blogs all the time though.  Next year I plan on trying to do more things with the blog though.  I've been slacking on my couponing lately so I was thinking maybe I should make a new blog that doesn't have anything to do with coupons, but honestly I do plan on getting back into it and this doesn't have to be all about coupons anyway.

So next year I plan on just blogging on whatever.  I do want to try doing some reviews of products I try.  I try a lot of things that are new to me that I get free or cheap with coupons or free samples.  Also some things I just buy to try.  Since I tend to not buy anything very expensive I figure it might help someone if not it will keep me busy lol.

So hopefully next year I'll be better.  This month I haven't even bought any newspapers!  I know I am shocked, too.  The first newspaper of the month always has about 4 inserts though and that is when I plan to make my comeback. :)

Hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Extreme Couponing Joyce & April

My recaps aren't going to be anything to extreme or long.  I just want to point out some things I notice in the shopping trips.  I didn't catch all of the stores they shopped in, but if I did I include it.


She is from West Columbia, SC and she is a waitress and her customers leave her coupons as tips.  She talked a lot about how she is addicted to couponing and how she "has to be addicted to something."

Her crazy stockpile included 500 boxes of Bayer, 837 razors and 560 cans of fruits/veggies.  I honestly don't understand people with things like this.  She uses the items from her stockpile to work out with so they don't have to have a gym membership.  If anything at least she is creative, right?

She had over 20 coupons for free 12 packs of 7-Up..that seems legit, right? *sigh*

One of her "quirks" is she has to have the "perfect" cashier.  She will walk around for hours after she is already done shopping (meaning after spending hours already) until she finds a cashier that fits her requirements.  Two that I remember her mentioning are "young and smiling"....I just can't....too much craziness.


She is from MI and uses the items she gets couponing to trade for favors.  One being that she can use the work computers to print coupons.  Now she gives the people working the cookies or whatever to use their computer & printer.  I wonder if her job is okay with that?

She has a 1 BR apartment filled to the brim with her stockpile.  She made her boyfriend/husband (can't remember which) move his desk to the basement so she could use that spot for her stockpile.  She mentioned since he is going to school and she is paying the bills it is up to her.  Sounds like a fun relationship.  I was curious why her stockpile couldn't go to the basement, but what do I know.

One thing I wanted to mention and she is a prime example for this.  If you really pay attention "Extreme Couponing" is not anything impressive.  Any one can go and buy $1,000 tubes of toothpaste (for example) that are $1.00 each and use 1,000 $1/1 coupons.  That right there is a $1,000 savings.  I don't understand how people think that is impressive.  Anyway.  Here are the things they said she got:

120 Sobe (she somehow had $1/1 coupons for these)
30 protein bars
100 cinnamon rolls
845 cookies

Am I the only one that sees all the greed with these people?
