Let's Go Krogering! Week of October 11, 2010 {Mega Event Continues}



I'm back on track this week (everyone at my house is eating again with no funky icky sicks - can I get a WOOT?!) and I'm thankful for a bit of normal - even if "normal" means "super-busy".

I made my way to Kroger Monday afternoon for my second go-round on the Mega Event sale (Buy 10 participating items, get an instant $5 off at checkout).  I ended up ducking back in again for a second time Monday evening as I was running my daughter to basketball practice to grab some of the FREE Land O Lakes Spreadable butter and super-cheap clearanced Maxwell House coffee I spotted on my first trip. 

Free butter?  Cheap coffee?  Please - like I could pass up that yummy combo.  

Apologies for the picture quality of the first shot!  This was just after school; in the rush of groceries, backpacks, and homework,  I didn't have time to get it "just right".  ;-)

  1. Thanks for the Mega Event info! I was at Kroger yesterday and did pretty well (saved 30%) but want to go back while the event is still on and stock up.

    Question...how do you get the home mailers from Kroger? I've been shopping there for about 2 months and have not received any direct mail from them yet....
