New name - New blogspot address...

So here's the deal - when I started this blog I tried so hard (way past my bedtime one night) to figure out a name so that the name and blogspot address would match. I was tired & couldn't think, my hubby was helping me; for some reason it never occurred to us to just make it match my e-mail address...LOL. Fast-forward a couple of months of trying to come up with a catchy name and it hits me - DUH - make it match your e-mail address which is - westkycouponlady(at)gmail(dot)com.

So, click here to go to my new blogspot address where my new posts will be. I'm also looking at the possibility of switching to a dotcom and dropping the blogspot part altogether but that's in the distant future.

Thanks for reading!

Only Saved 68% at Kroger....

So a friend and I are wondering what we've come to. I ran in Kroger on Park Avenue Thursday, to get ground beef for spaghetti (really need to catch some good sales to restock the freezer) and do the Aussie/ Herbal Essence Hair Deal. Ended up spending $16.80 including $1.?? in tax but only saved 68% - like somehow that's just not enough savings. I can't find my receipt to double-check all the amounts - still haven't found my good CVS one from Tuesday either - what can I say? My son went back to school this week and it apparently just messed me up completely...LOL

Here's the breakdown:

4.2 lbs bananas, 39¢/lb because they were ripe - but not too ripe for us :-)
2.21 lbs apples, 89¢/lb
1.69 lbs ground chuck, $1.78 lb Manager's Special
1 box New York Brand Frozen Garlic Toast, $2.50, used a 50¢ q which doubled to $1.00
1 candy bar (100 Grand), 33¢ on clearance
3 printer ink cartridges, $2.09/ea on clearance, sometimes it's good to have an older printer
1 Scotch Brand Mailroom Supplies Paper Cutter, $1.50 on clearance, used a 50¢ q which doubled to $1.00
1 box Bounce Pure Essentials Dryer Sheets 105 ct, clearance $1.69, used a 50¢ q which doubled to $1.00 and had 50¢ PG esaver coupon on card
1 Bottle Aussie Shampoo, $2.99
1 Bottle Aussie Conditioner, $2.99, used $2/2 Aussie Products, and $2.00 Aussie PG esaver coupon on card
1 Bottle Herbal Essence Shampoo, $2.99
1 Can Herbal Essence Hairspray, $2.99, used buy 1 Herbal Essence Shampoo or Conditioner get 1 Herbal Essence Styling Product Free (scanned at $3.69) and had $1 Herbal Essence PG esaver coupon on card
-$4.00 P & G buy 4 get $4 off promotion

So, I'm looking at my receipt which has my savings listed and see Total Savings 68% and think "That's all?" Seriously? I think I need a reality check!

**Aussie/ Herbal Essence Deal**
buy 2 Aussie @ $2.99/ea
buy 1 Herbal Essence shampoo or conditioner @$2.99
buy 1 Herbal Essence styling product @ $2.99
Total 11.96 plus 72¢ tax = $12.68
- $4 P & G promotion = $8.68
-$2/2 Aussie = 6.68
-$2 Aussie PG esaver = $4.68
-$2.99 or $3.69 depending on how the cashier rings free styling product q = $1.69 or 99¢
-$1 Herbal Essence PG esaver = 69¢ OOP or 1¢ overage
