Thrifty Thursdays!!!! (and my beautiful dish I won!)

I think I have thought of a new post topic!!! Since I am all for saving as much money as I possibly can, but still getting quality stuff, I thought I would start "Thrifty Thursdays". These posts will feature the best deals I have found for the week. They may include items that were on sale or clearance and also items I have picked up for cheap thanks to coupons!! I went to Kroger this past weekend and was very impressed with myself. Here are some of the best deals I was able to get:
Drano: $4.19-$1 coupon (doubled)= $2.19
Nivea Body Wash: $6.99- $3.49 (kroger card)- $1 coupon (doubled)= $1.50
Herbal Essences Shampoo: $2.37- $1 coupon (doubled)= $0.37
Duracell 4 pk Batteries: $3.69 -$1 coupon (doubled)= $1.69
Mr.Clean Magic Eraser 2pk: $2.59- $1 coupon (doubled)= $0.59
Febreeze Set and Release: $2.89- $1 coupon (doubled)= $0.89
Crest Whitening Toothpaste: $2.39- $1 coupon (doubled)= $0.39
Crest Extra Whitening w/ sample of 3D vivid white: $2.50 (w/Kroger card)-$1 coupon (doubled)= $0.50
Always pads: $3.45- $1 coupon (doubled)= $1.45
Energizer 10 pk AA batteries: $5.99- $1 (Kroger card)- $1 (e-coupon)- $1 coupon (doubled)= $1.99
Febreeze Noticeables refills: $4.89- $1 coupon (doubled)= $2.89
Colgate Wisp 4pk: $2.39- $1 coupon (doubled)= $0.39

Retail Price: $41.94
Price I paid: $14.84
SAVINGS: $27.10!!!!!

I was also able to get a box of 10 packets of Quacker Oatmeal free, Coffeemate Liquid Creamer for 1.10 and a box of Idahoan single serve mashed potatoes (10 pk) for $0.69. Not too shabby!!!

Since Kroger will double coupons up to $1, I always take all my coupons that are above 50 cents here to redeem them. I highly recommend everyone doing this. You get brand name items for basically free!!

Also this week I made a trip to my apartment office to pick up some packages that I had received. First off, I made a donation to the USO to help our troops and they were kind enough to send me a nice big USA Flag :). I also received an adorable dish that I had won from a recent blog giveaway thanks to Teresa @ FunFritzFamily. I won the lovely little dish pictured below from Good Memories Cafe.
I LOVE IT!!! It is so cute with great detail. I love the little cloud above the tree that says "dream" on it. Thank you sooo much for my beautiful gift :).

I'd also like to thank all my fellow bloggers for the recent awards I have been receiveing. I have received a few these last couple days and I am ecstatic! I am so glad you are enjoying my blog!!!
