Let's Go Krogering! | Week of March 12, 2012 {March to Savings 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, March 12, 2012



Spent: $78.67
Saved: $69.90 (47%)

A brand new Mega Sale event began at Kroger and runs through Sunday, March 25, 2012. The March to Savings Mega Sale event features a huge list of participating items; click here for the full list.

Along with the March to Savings Mega Event, Kroger is featuring an online March to Savings game where you can win FREE participating Mega Event items. Be sure to check it out; after you play, look through the e-coupons available at Kroger.com and add any of the high value ones that you might use. Remember, e-coupons do NOT double and you can NOT stack a manufacturer coupon with an e-coupon. It's in your best interest to search for e-coupons valued at $1.00 or more.

Apologies for the blurry picture; my Monday started off with all of us oversleeping and the day only got crazier.  ;-)  All of the items on the left are Mega Event items; from the bread and cheese over to the right were the other items I purchased.  Noteworthy deal: the Kraft Cheese catalina has returned and is in effect until 3/18/12 - buy 5 participating Kraft Cheese items, get a $4.00 off your next order catalina.  For the full list of participating Kraft Cheese items for this catalina deal, click here.

I also hopped into Aldi on Monday for a ton of produce, dairy, and pantry/baking items.  I spent $45.09 there; my weekly budget of $100 was a-screaming at my $24 overage.  No worries; my freezer is now full of meat for the rest of the month and my simple stockpile is re-stocked.  I foresee some low spending weeks ahead.

Here's the coupons I used at Kroger on Monday, 3/12/12:
