Let's Go Krogering! | Week of April 25, 2011 {Kroger 10/$10 Sale + Post-Easter Trip}


Wondering what's the deal with my weekly Let's Go Krogering! (LGK!) posts?
 Click here for more information.

This week, Kroger is running a 10 for $10 sale with many good coupon matchups.  Remember:  you don't need to buy 10 items to get the $1.00 per item price; each item is priced at $1.00 no matter how many you purchase.  The 10 for $10 wording is simply a catchy little advertising and marketing tactic.  ;-)

After hosting Easter - and making a couple of final trips to Kroger at the end of last week for Easter basket candy and fresh items for our family get together - I didn't need too much this week from Kroger.  I took advantage of the current Splenda catalina deal plus the $3/1 coupons from the SS 04/17 insert; they expire on 05/02/11 - use them soon!  I also made my usual Monday morning trip to Aldi for milk, eggs, produce, popsicles (a staple at our house!) and a few other items and spent about $26 on that trip. 

After spending about $400 in April (I've averaged my last four weekly spending/saving totals and I spent $398 and saved $321 or 48% during weeks 12-15 of 2011), it's nice to be in a "low" spending week.  With all the goodies leftover from yesterday's feast as well as the items I've got stockpiled in my freezer and pantry, I really didn't need much at all at the store this week.
