Let's Go Krogering! Week of October 4, 2010 {Kroger Mega Sale Returns!}



Friday {a bit later than Tuesday this week, eh?}, October 8, 2010


Spent: $37.17
Saved: $65.02 (63%)
(Not pictured: 5 Barilla Whole Grain Pasta Boxes -- I gave those to my mom.)

Oh, happy day - the Kroger Mega Event sale is back! 

Do you ever wonder if the powers that be at Kroger Corporate have any idea how happy we couponers are to see Buy 10, get $5 off instantly!  across the front of our weekly Kroger ad?  ;-)

As usual, this sale is a two-weeker; in my region (Cincinnati), it runs through Sunday, October 17, 2010, meaning you have lots of time to get your coupons ready or order extra coupons from a clipping service for items you'd like to stockpile.  Also, since these two week Mega Event sales are so much fun for us frugalistas, be sure to pace yourself if you plan on making multiple trips.  ;-)

As well as the Mega Event deals, there are still several good deals remaining on $10/10 items; those prices end on 10/10/10, so if you have any of the items I mention at the end of my matchups on your list, you'll want to get 'em soon. 

Here's the coupons I used; please note that Cincinnati area Kroger stores allow unlimited coupons and double coupons to a maximum doubled value of $1.00.
