Let's Go Krogering! | Week of January 30, 2012 {Mega Sale Continues + LINK UP *your* LGK! deals!}


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 (*oh-so-late*) Monday, January 30, 2012


Spent: $62.18 ($10.00 of which was a rebate Gift Card)
Saved: $71.72 (53%)

Well, my dear friends, I am TWO days late on posting my LGK! this week and I do have to apologize. My family (myself included) came down with the Hacky McHacky cough/cold over the past week or so (don't you just *love* how colds/flus linger from one person to another in a family?!) and I also had a Girl Scout cookie sale deadline I absolutely had to meet late Tuesday night. Time has not been my friend this week.

The Kroger MEGA Event continues this week and runs through Sunday, February 5, 2012. Don't forget to check and print any new coupons released this week (new month = new coupons!) as well as look at the Sunday coupon preview for February 5, 2012. There are bound to be some last minute deals worth grabbing before the sale ends Sunday at midnight. The list of participating items is HUGE so be sure to stockpile items that you'll use in the coming months.

I headed out to my Kroger late on Monday night and found all the deals I was looking for this week. I still have several coupons prepped for deals I'd like to grab before the sale week finishes; I plan on looking through the Kroger ad for next week when the preview is posted over at Savings Lifestyle (the team there usually has the coming week ad preview/matchup posted on Saturday) to see what, if any, deals I might want to grab next Monday and the estimated cost. I'll then have a good idea of how much money I have available from my $100/week budget to put toward stockpiling Mega Event items with the anticipated hope that rebuilding my simple stockpile will allow me to cut my grocery budget by 10-15% for a few weeks to come.

Last, I've finally gotten (enough of) my act together in 2012 to add back the MckLinky at the end of this post for YOU to link up your weekly finds at Kroger. Please see the MckLinky for rules on how to add your LGK!, Kroger deals, or Kroger finds post to the linky so that other readers can benefit from your mad couponing skillz. ;-) Thanks in advance to those of you who participate.
