Kroger mega run Saturday

Ok, Saturday was a crazy day! My husband wanted to brew beer and I wanted to shop. So, we both won, sort of. He stayed home to brew his beer and I went shopping.............with two kiddos in tow!
I wanted to get as many coupons used for the mega sale as I could seeing as some of them were set to expire that day. I made a few mistakes with calculating (hmmm two little girls fighting didn't help, lol) but all in all, I think I did pretty well. You will notice I did also purchase two bottles of wine in all this(perhaps because two little girls were fighting at each store!)
It would take me far too long to itemize each trip, so I am just going to give you a summation of the quantities I purchased and where I found the misc. coupons I used. I hope you don't mind!

Please remember too, I shop for 4 households so this is really not a HUGE stash once everyone takes their share.

Have not found any of the .40 coupons on the Dt. Dr. Pepper bottles. I've looked in Cypress & in Katy. Any suggestions? My grandparents go nuts if they dont have their Dt Dr P!

Wow that was an awesome shopping trip I see. And I totally understand about shopping with kids. I have 4 so I get it, but there is no way I would have done that good with 2 kids. You amaze me. Thanks for all your inspiration.
