CVS & Kroger - Saving 83%

I haven't gone on any major shopping trips in a while due to my Christmas to-do list. So things were looking a little bare in the fridge. I spent the morning catching up on my coupon clipping and finally made it to CVS around 1 pm so the things on my list were a little scarce. I had to rearrange my plan and hope that the things were available on my second CVS trip (two CVS's about 10 minutes apart). I also stopped at Kroger for all the free TP with the coupon from last Sunday's inserts. I didn't take pictures because I am so time challenged at the moment! Between CVS and Kroger, the total value of the purchases was $227.93. My OOP for these trips was $39.46 (saving 83%) with a gain of 21.03 in ECBs. I also stopped at Publix which I will share later.

I thought I was good with the coupons, but you are amazing. I tend to save about $5.00-$15.00 each shopping trip (every two weeks). I'd like to get that up to $30-$50 each trip.
