Let's Go Krogering! | Week of September 19, 2011 {Mega Event Sale Continues!}

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

Read on to see what deals I found at my Kroger this week...

My Kroger Trip, Monday, September 19, 2011:


Spent: $27.99
Saved: $22.42 (44%)

I finally darkened the door of my local Kroger this week...but I still didn't buy too much. In fact, I only bought ten Mega Event items.

{Gasp!}

This is one of those Mega Event sales where only a few of the participating items catch my eye and meet the needs of my family.

Lunch meat? Check.

Yogurt? Check.

Cheez-Its? Double check.

(If my house were a sovereign nation, Cheez-Its would be our official National Snack!)

I did order some coupons for this sale and anticipate those arriving later this week. I'll hit Kroger before the sale ends on Sunday night and stockpile some of the above items (although there were no active OM Deli Fresh coupons) as well as Capri Suns and Tide Stain Release Tablets.

But other than those items, this sale and the available coupon matchups just didn't sing to me. Maybe we'll see some great coupons in this Sunday's paper that give us a few last good matchups for this sale?

{Fingers crossed.}

I also made my usual weekly shopping trip to Aldi where I picked up milk & dairy items, pantry items, produce, and the ever-important popsicles for the kiddos. I spent about $32 there and also spent about $15 at Target on Sunday for snacks for my boys sports teams.

{Don't get me started on the Rise of the Mandatory Snack for Every Child-Based Activity. I'm not sure how that became our cultural norm but I sure don't remember it from my childhood!}
