Kroger Paid Me to Take 10 Packs of Cheese!!

Kroger has a GREAT sale this week: Buy 10 (particular) items and get $5 off your order. Kraft singles are part of the sale. If you buy ten, they are only 99 cents each. Wait, it gets better! There is a coupon booklet this is a display near the eggs at Publix that has a $1.50/2 coupon for Kraft cheese making them 24cents each! Wait, it betters better yet! When you buy they you will pay $2.40 but a catalina will print out that is worth $5 off your next order! So you get paid $2.60 to take 10 packs of Kraft cheese slices off their hands! I LOVE better than FREE!!
