Wondering what's the deal with my weekly Let's Go Krogering! (LGK!) posts?

My Kroger Trip, Monday, June 13, 2011:

Spent: $79.17
Saved: $72.46 (48%)

I was excited to see that Kroger was featuring an awesome Mega Event sale this week: buy 5 participating items, get $5.00 off at checkout.

Getting a $1.00 each participating item is a HUGE savings in and of itself; adding matching coupons to lower the total cost of those participating items just sweetens the deal! ;-)

Since our cereal stockpile is empty (I just opened our last big yellow box of Cheerios at the end of last week), seeing some of our fave Kellogg's cereals in this Mega Event sale was good news.  I stocked up on a bunch of those and will likely go back for a few more boxes of Mini Wheats this weekend since that is the one cereal everyone in my house just.plain.loves.

There is also a HOT deal on Heinz ketchup this week.  The 40 oz bottles are on sale for $1.99 ea (that's a deal in and of itself since the unit price is $0.05/oz).  I saw the $0.50/1 Heinz coupons listed at my favorite coupon clipping service a few weeks ago and ordered a bunch; in my experience, this time of year is one of the few times (if not the only time) that such a high value coupon for Heinz ketchup is released.  Since ketchup is the most used condiment in my house (three kids = lots of ketchup!), I took advantage of the opportunity to use the coupons on this week's sale price and stockpile it. 

Now the only question is how long will all that ketchup last??  Knowing my kids, not as long as I'd like to think it will!!

  1. Thanks, Marianne! All your tips are helping...there is definitely a learning curve, but it's getting easier. Your help has been immense.

  2. I also found 20 count Excedrin on sale for $2.99 with a $1 coupon peelie on the box..making it just 99 cents. With the number of headaches I get this was an awesome deal!!
