Let's Go Krogering! Week of July 20, 2009

Do love finding deals at your Kroger? This feature is for you! Link your post about what deals you found at your local Kroger or Kroger-affiliated store. Simple rules are here; the 149x149 button is in my sidebar.

Feel free to link up to this all week and share the good deals you find at your local Kroger or Kroger-affiliated store! As always, please add a link back to me in your Krogering post. Not sure how to do this? Just
email me and I'll walk you through it!


It's week two of the super-duper-stockup 10 Item Mega Event sale at Kroger - woohoo!

To see the matchups for this week's ad, click here.

I rolled a huge cart of goodies through my Kroger yesterday; I had many, many coupons for this sale that I had ordered from Coupons by Dede and I took advantage of this sale to stock up on items we use regularly. My kiddos kept saying, "The cart's just SO FULL, Mom!"

They all helped me bring in the bags (they are really good kids, even if they do start to squabble a bit on these long and hot summer days); after my oldest son brought in the last one (he's six), he said, "Now you can take a picture of the groceries, Mom!"

It's funny - he knows I always grab a quick picture after I unload everything but I wonder why he thinks I need a picture of the groceries; to remember our fun at Kroger?? My kids aren't exactly tuned into their mom's blogging!

Anyhow, I had SO much stuff that it would have been near impossible to shoot one big picture so I took this one of (10) of the participating items for the Mega Event:

I used these coupons:

--> (5) $0.55/1 SunnyD, SS 05/31 (FREE after sale price + doubled coupon)

--> (1) $1.00/1 Kraft Dressing, SS 06/21 ($0.19 after sale price + coupon)

--> (2) $0.50/1 Chex Mix Select, printable coupon right here ($0.49 after sale price + coupon)

--> (1) $0.50/2 Chex Mix, SS 06/07 ($0.99 after sale price + coupon)

Total for those (10) items above: $3.15

But I bought waaay more than that; last week, I spent about $90.00 at Kroger; this week, I took advantage of the sale to stock up and spent more than my $100/week target; see?

It never feels *good* to go over budget but I did this deliberately this week; I wanted to load my pantry and spare fridge with lots and lots of stuff since I'm going to be out of town this weekend at BlogHer in Chicago. This way, my hubs doesn't have to worry about groceries at all while I'm gone and I won't be scrambling to get to the store on Monday after I return because we're running low on staples and snacks.

*Noteworthy Catalina Deals*

Kraft Macaroni & Cheese Catalina Deal 7/3-7/26:
Buy 4, get $1.00
Buy 5, get $1.50
Buy 6 or more, get $2.00

(Use Buy3Get1FREE coupon in SS 06/28 to get (4) for about $0.15 each after coupon and catalina!)

Kleenex Catalina Deal, dates uncertain?
Buy 4, get $1.00 catalina off your next order AND $1.00/4 Kleenex Facial Tissues catalina

(Use (2) $1.00/3, SS 07/12 and buy them as part of the 10 item Mega Event and get (6) for about $0.83 each after coupon, catalina, and Mega Event discount!)

**As always, please add a link back to my Let's Go Krogering! post in your Krogering post and be sure that you add your post's permalink to the Mr. Linky so everyone else can find your deals (rather than just linking back to your blog's homepage). Need help doing this? Email me and I'll walk you through it!**

**7/21/09 9:38 AM EST: There appear to be some difficulties today with Mr. Linky; apologies. I'll keep an eye on this and update it when the linky box returns. Until then, feel free to comment with a link to your Krogering post; thanks!**

**7/21/09 9:50 PM EST: Thanks to Saving in Akron for suggesting I check out MckLinky.com for a new way for you guys to add your links; this one works like Mr. Linky but you need to limit your link title to 50 characters. Add your links and thanks in advance!**

    You may want to try using Mcklinky. It seems to be more reliable then Mr. Linky.

  2. Hi!
    I couldn't find the printable Chex Mix coupon. Could you tell me your zipcode so I can get it? THANK YOU- I love your Kroger match ups!
