My Krogering Trip, Monday, June 14, 2010


Spent: $82.96
Saved: $56.05 (40%)

Kroger is running a 10/$10 sale this week and there are several good matchups.  Remember, for any type of 10/$10 sale, you DO NOT need to buy 10 items to get the benefit of the $1.00 sale price per item; it's an old and clever marketing tactic.  8-) 

I totally *blew* my budget this week but I knew I would face a higher bill even before I stepped into Kroger (and Aldi, which I shopped on Monday as well).  I have (3) snack duties this week for my daughter (softball and day camp) which means lots of extra $$ spent that on items I don't usually buy. 

However, I made the most of a spendier situation by purchasing (with coupons, of course!) items that will help meet the requirements for the final Kraft Back to School $20 Rebate I mentioned here yesterday.  If I have to buy loads of snacks, at least I'll get something back for them!

One final note: there weren't too many *stellar* coupon matchups (for me) this week via the Sunday inserts or the available printables.  Almost all of the matchups I found were from the home mailer coupons that I've received (and filed in my coupon filer box) from Kroger.  Be sure to take the time to flip through those mailers during an *off* week because you may just find several coupons that matchup (as I was fortunate enough to have done).
