Oh my goodness, it is so chilly out! Not only that, it is drizzly and chilly, everything is gray and sad looking.

On the good side of this day, I can run MUCH quicker when I am motivated to get back to my warm snuggles! 3 miles in 27 minutes isn’t tooooo shabby!

That isn’t what this post is about though, I want to tell you that Soups On! The cool, sad, weather means soups and hearty flavors are just around the corner. What better preparation than for Kroger to have a Mega Sale on stock and chili (and soup too, if you want to cheat… cheaters).

No, I didn’t actually RUN to Kroger, I drove my slightly awesome PFC (Paid For Car).

Here is my run down:

10 Swanson Chicken Broth @ $0.50* = $5.00 -(2) $1.00/5 = $3.00 or $0.30/each

4 Hormel Chili Master @ $0.75* = $3.00 – (2) $0.50/2 = $1.00 or $0.25/each

2 Carnation Evaporated Milk @ $0.69* - $0.50/2 = $0.38 or $0.19/Each

1 Nabisco Crackers @ $1.49* – $1.00/1 WYB any soup = $0.49

2 Krusteaz Muffin Mix @ $1.49* = 2.98 – $1.00/2 = $1.98 or $0.99/each (Earned $1.00 Catalina)

2 Pepperidge Farm Cookies @ $2.49* = 4.98 – (2) $0.75/1 = $3.48 or $1.74/each (Will submit MIR for Free Soft Baked Montauk cookies = $2.99)

2 Skinner Pasta @ $0.38* = $0.76 – $1.00/2 = -$0.24

5 Annie’s Mac N Cheese @ $.49* = $2.45

2 Kotex Liners @ $2.99* = $5.98 – (2) $1.00/1 = $ 3.98 or $1.99/each

2 Finish Quantum Dish Detergent @ 2.99* = $5.98 – (2) $1.50/1 = $2.98 or $1.49 each

*The above were part of the Kroger Mega Deal, prices listed are AFTER the $0.50 discount on each item.

Mrs. Fields cookies @ $2.50 – $1.00/1 = $1.50

2 Nieva For Men Body Wash @ $3.99 = $7.98 – (2) $3.00/1 = $1.98 or $0.99 each

4 Idahoan Potatoes @ $0.90 = $3.60 – (3) $1.00/1 = $0.60 or $0.15/each (Earned $1.00 Catalina)

Jimmy D’s @ $4.59 – $1.00/1 eCoupon – $1.00/1 = $2.59
