Let's Go Krogering! Week of January 23, 2012 {Game Day Greats Mega Sale Begins!}


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, January 23, 2012


Spent: $16.01
Saved: $33.87 (68%)

The Kroger MEGA Event returns this week and runs through Sunday, February 5, 2012. I am SO excited for all the deals that are available! Kroger typically runs one of their best Mega Events of the year every January in the two weeks that lead up to Super Bowl Sunday. The list of participating items is HUGE and covers a wide variety of categories making this sale an excellent opportunity to refresh your stockpile after the long holiday season at the end of the year.

Despite my excitement about the Mega Event sale this week, I didn't buy very much at all. I spent the majority of my grocery budget for the first four weeks of January in the first three weeks of the month so this week I challenged myself to really work with what I have in my pantry and freezers and buy only what we really needed. I'll be posting more about my grocery budget challenge this Saturday.  (And I'm sure I'll be making a big stockpile trip to Kroger on Monday, January 30!)

Be sure to spend some time checking your coupon stash for participating item coupons for this sale and be alert to new printable coupons released during the course of the Mega Event sale as well as upcoming Sunday Insert coupons. There's bound to be even more deal matchups found as new coupons are released.
