I went and took advantage of the King Soopers deals yesterday. Unfortunately, our store wasn't offering a special on the Nature Valley Granola bars, but I did pretty well on what I did buy:

4 Progresso Soups at $1.19 x 4 = $4.76- 2 coupons for .50/2 cans which KS doubled to be $1.00 (x2)= $2.76 total

3 Cheerios $1.48 x 3 = $4.44 - 3 coupons for $1/1 cheerios = $1.44

1 Cheetos $1.49 - .50/1 coupon which King Soopers Doubled = .49

So, for 8 items I spent $4.69, which comes out to .59 each

This was a pretty good shopping trip for me, as my total bill came to $18 after sales and coupons, and I saved over $55. I ended up saving 77% off of my order total.

Yay King Soopers! My favorite store for great deals!
