Real Couponing: 3pk Razors for $0.14!

Ok, so I'm a fan of Extreme Couponing (don't shoot me, lol) but for entertainment purposes only. It's unrealistic to think that every item on your grocery list can be free, especially meat. I had a little fun this week, and decided to try to maximize my savings at the grocery store. I went to a coupon site and made my list of sale items. I found that I had several higher value coupons than those listed. One of which was for the Schick Quattro 3 pack razors. They are on sale at Kroger for 6.28 BOGO free, making them 3.14 each. I had 3 coupons good on single items - a $5/1 coupon and $2/1 (x2.) 

Here's how they worked out for $0.14 each pack (or 0.05 per razor):
PRICE          COUPON           TOTAL
$3.14      -      $5 (printable)    =  -$1.86     
$3.14      -      $2 (newspaper) =   $1.14     
$3.14      -      $2 (newspaper) =   $1.14     
$9.42      -      $9 (savings)       =   $0.42!

Overall, we saved $117 on our purchases today and that's good enough for me! 

How much have you saved lately?
