Let's Go Krogering! | Week of May 23, 2011 {Frozen Food Mega Sale Continues...Without Me!}

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 Frozen Foods Mega Event - buy 10 participating items, get an instant $5.00 off at checkout.

While I *love* a good Kroger Mega Sale, this particular version - with it's emphasis on frozen and prepared foods - just doesn't ring my bell.  The only items I usually grab from the freezer aisles are ice cream and popsicles.  {FYI: Kroger Deluxe Ice Cream is on sale for $2.50 this week!}  ;-) 

There are some nice deals at Kroger this week on non-Mega items, particularly on Pepperidge Farm cookies which don't often go on sale nor do they often have coupons out for these.  To have both a sale and coupon for these is NICE!

My final total is a bit higher than it should have been - I had a few coupons for the Kool Aid (I bought 51 packets - a summer's worth of drinks, slushies, and popsicles!) and the cashier (who was wonderful) missed ringing a couple of them up correctly.  I also had a price error on my receipt for the NY Bagel Chips. 

Could I have gone to the customer service desk?  Sure; I've done so many times in the past.  But I was short on time yesterday; I decided my time was worth more than the $2-$3 that I would have netted in savings.  I've said it so many times here before but it bears repeating: your time is your most valuable resource.  Use it wisely!
