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

My Kroger Trip, Monday, August 8, 2011:
Saved: $26.00 (60%)
This Cart Buster Event continues this week at Kroger; as I mentioned last week, this sale event doesn't offer what I consider to be *stellar* savings. Be sure to check your price book, your old receipts, past Kroger weekly matchups online, or just your noggin to compare prices before you buy. ;-)
One thing that is different this week is the Deal of the Day eCoupon that Kroger is releasing each day from August 3-16, 2011. The daily eCoupon is only available to load onto your Kroger card for the day it's released and matches up to one of the Cart Buster Event sale items.
One thing to note: the Deal of the Day eCoupons don't expire until August 31, 2011, which is well after this Cart Buster Event ends. Because these are higher value eCoupons that may also match up with future sale events in August, it's worth your time to load them to your card each day.
I didn't need much at Kroger this week; my hubs is traveling for work this week and my kiddos and I are eating through some of the last of the items I stockpiled earlier this summer including some ground beef and a seemingly endless supply of hotdogs! Since my tomato plants are finally yielding, I've been munching on fresh tomato sandwiches (with mayo!) just about every meal except breakfast. I also dashed into Aldi on Monday where I spent about $20 on milk, produce, and pantry items bringing me to just about $37 for this week. I think I'm finally balancing out some of the super spendy weeks I had earlier this summer. ;-)
