  5. 1/3 SS Wholly Guacamole or Salsa Fry's (Kroger family) has it on for $1 this week--no mega event requirement. Looks like free guacamole and salsa for me!

  6. I just went to Kroger yesterday (Houston TX area). They have Capri Sun on the Buy 10 promo for $1.49. If you go to the Kraft website, they have a $1/2 coupon. I printed 2 and my MIL printed 2 for me. So, in the end they were .99 cent.
    Also, Velveeta is on the Buy 10 for 3.99, $1/1 on Kraft website, so they were 2.99, which I think is good for Velveeta!
    Kroger has a blinkie for Hunt's products $1/4, and with their sale, they came out to .25.

  8. My Kroger in Knoxville, TN prints a list of everything that is included in the sale when they have these Mega Events. So, you might start looking for that. They are easy to overlook. They are just about the size of 1/3 of a sheet of paper. They are usually in a plastic box that is attached to one of their sale signs advertising the mega event in the middle of an aisle (like the main aisle in front of the cash registers or in the back of the store in front of the meat/cheese area. The list is green and yellow and on the top says:
    SHOPPING LIST
    10 Item Mega Event
