I Went Krogering! What Great Deals!

I stopped at Kroger twice today, once during my lunch hour to get non-perishables and once after work to get the refrigerated foods. My main goal was to take advantage of the 10 for $10 sales and the buy 10 items - get 1 free deal that's happening this week. They were out of the StarKist tuna pouches that would be free after the coupon HERE, but I did get a raincheck for those. They said that they would even give me the 11th item free deal. That's perfect, because I have a bunch of coupons!

Here's a picture of what I got on both stops today. (Click to enlarge.) Yeah... That's a snorkel and goggles set you see there. Emma's been pretending to snorkel in the bathtub, and I've been watching for a real set for her. I found this one on the clearance toy rack at Kroger for $2.10. I just couldn't pass that up! She's been wearing it around the house this evening.

Merchandise Value: $147.07
