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

My Kroger Trip, Monday, July 18, 2011:

{No picture! I had lots of help from my kiddos with bringing in the groceries; they were so sweet and enthusiastic that I just let them put the stuff away rather than stopping them for a photo shoot. ;-) }

Spent: $32.92
Saved: $90.10 (73% - WOOT!)

This week at Kroger, the Mega Event sale continues: buy 10 participating items, get $5.00 off at checkout.   This new Mega Event sale runs through Sunday, 7/24/11 and the list of participating items is HUGE:


I took advantage of this stockpiling opportunity this week and stocked up on several items that will last through the summer and beyond in my household. Be sure you check through your coupon stash for the best deals (see here, here, and here for the best matchups); don't forget you can also order additional coupons for specific items as an excellent way to save big while stockpiling.

I did my Krogering on Monday evening which has worked well for me this summer. I also hit Aldi and spent about $36 there bringing my total for the week to about $70. Since my weekly grocery spending has averaged above $130 for the summer months (serious ouch!), it was nice to have a lower total this week.

Here's the deals I grabbed at Kroger on July 18, 2011:
