Let's Go Krogering – Week of 3/16

by Marcy on March 17, 2009 · 0 comments

Marianne of The New Frugal Mom hosts a weekly meme called “Let’s Go Krogering!” where bloggers can share the deals that they score each week with others. Because I had such an awesome trip at Kroger yesterday I thought it would be fun to participate. (Not to mention it is no secret that Kroger is my favorite place to shop for groceries…and I’ll talk about it any chance I get!)

Here are the highlights of my shopping trip yesterday. I did take advantage of the 10 Item Mega Sale twice for an extra $10 off of my order.

Total Spent – $56.19
Total Saved – $67.54 (55%)

My Best Deals:

– 10 bottles of Welch’s Aquajuice (yes, 10!) – $1/ea after mega sale + coupons
– 6 boxes of Fiber One bars – $0.86/ea after mega sale + coupons
– 3 bottles of Purex Laundry Detergent – $1.52/ea after mega sale + coupons
– 1 Freschetta Frozen Pizza – $2.49 after mega sale + coupons

– 3 Kroger Half Gallon Milk – $0.79/ea – manager’s special
– 1 Private Selection Half Gallon Organic Soy Milk – $0.45/ea after sale ($1/ea!) + coupon
– 1 Private Selection Organic Plain Yogurt – $1.39/ea after coupon
– 1 Suave Shampoo – FREE after coupon

To paint a fair picture of my grocery expenditures for the week, I also shopped at Meijer, which brought my grocery/household item total to right at $100. I stocked up on several items (mostly cleaning/household items at Meijer) and was also able to purchase a fair amount of fresh (and some organic) produce. Because I stockpile meat when it is on sale (plus buy 1/4 of a beef once a year) I did not have to purchase meat this week. I was also able to skip a diaper purchase due to the fact that I stocked up at Walgreens last week. I mention all of this in an effort to help those of you who are interested in stockpiling when items are cheap, but aren’t quite sure how it works.

If you are a Kroger shopper and want some deal inspiration, be sure to head on over to the New Frugal Mom to see what bargains other shoppers were able to dig up!
