Kroger Gift Card Giveaway – CLOSED

by Marcy on August 17, 2009 · 0 comments

If you have read my blog for any length of time, you have probably heard me mention the fact that Kroger is my favorite store to shop at for groceries. I have been blogging about Kroger almost from the beginning (of this blog) because I shop there weekly and because I feel they offer a great variety of ways to save money on groceries.

I was super excited when I was offered the chance to receive a $30 gift card to use during the Mega Event that is currently going on at Kroger (through 9/2/09), not only because I would be receiving $30, but because one of you will as well!

I completed my challenge this morning, and you can see my purchases in the above photo. I spent $33.60 out of pocket on the 20 items seen above after the Mega Event discount and coupons. That averages out to just $1.68 per item! And while I think that the Mega Event is a great promo on it’s own, you really get the biggest bang for your buck when you combine your manufacturer’s coupons with the sale!

I love stocking up on non-perishable items during events like these because of the value. We now have enough granola/cereal bars to last us for at least 2 months, along with a few additional staple pantry items that will come in handy for both dinner and snack time.
