Let's Go Krogering! Week of November 1, 2010 {Mega Event Sale RETURNS!}

The Mega Event sales at Kroger just.keep.coming!  Woot!

This week (and next week), Kroger is running yet another Mega Event - buy any 10 participating items, get an instant $5.00 off your order at checkout.  This one features many Kraft, Nabisco, Frito-Lay, Pepperidge Farm, and Quaker items just to name a few.

I hit Kroger on Monday night; I had a sick kiddo home from school which meant I had to readjust my Monday plans including my Krogering run.  No biggie because this is all I bought at Kroger yesterday:

Spent: $21.37
Saved: $12.89 (37%)
Earned: $3.00 oyno catalina for buying (6) Kleenex

I know - shocking, isn't it?  A Mega Event and me not going coupon crazy?

There's a few reasons why I held off on the Mega Event yesterday:

1) That sick kiddo of mine home from school.  I was a bit worried about him and didn't have time or the desire to plan a big trip or gather coupons.

2) Lack of information.  Based on the ad that I had in hand as well as the matchups I saw online, I suspected there would be many, many, MANY unadvertised items that I might want to stock up on.   And I was right; while I was at Kroger on Monday night, I picked up the full list of particpating items and there must be well over 150 or so participatitating items meaning many more ways to save.

3)  My stockpile is pretty healthy.  I've got lots of basic items already on hand in my pantry and freezers.  I built a simple menu plan for November based around what I have in my stockpile.  I just didn't need too much this week.

4) I'm planning on ordering coupons.  Once I get through the list of particpating items and see what coupons are available, I'm planning on ordering extras so I can stock up on some key staples for my household.

I'll publish the list of particpating items asap; please note that I did not have time (or the desire!) to go through my Kroger late Monday night and note prices on all of them.  Seriously, the list is SO BIG that I took one look at it and realized it could take me a couple of hours to track down all the prices.   My goal is just to get the matchups first.  ;-)

I did use a few coupons yesterday:

Kleenex, $1.29 (rectangle box) and $2.09 (cube)
$0.50/3, SS
Final price: $0.96 - $1.49
**Buy (6) earn $3.00 oyno!**

$5.00 oyno, Kroger Brands Shop & Save promotion from October (see here for details).
