I'm doing the happy dance over here in my little spot of the world :D It took me two tries at Kroger (the first store was confusing, and after re-reading their ad and looking at the shelf labels VERY carefully I got it figured out for round #2), but I think I did ok for my first shopping trip doing the whole coupon thing! A few items were things I HAD to get, the rest was "stocking up" :)

~4 Pepsi Products - 4/$11, used (2) $1Q ($.18/can!!)
