Super Savings Saturday: More Kroger Deals

It's Super Savings Saturday over at Money Saving Mom - go join in the fun and see how much the frugal faithful have saved this week!

I did my usual Friday Krogering yesterday and of course, made use of the Kroger 10 Item Mega Sale to fill my cart with 30 of the participating items along with my other necessities.

These 30 goodies above were $55.00 (mind you, that's the sale price - all the 10 Item Mega Sale items are priced at either $1.00, $1.50, $2.00, and $2.50).

I paid $29.50 for them after the $5.00/10 items multiplied by 3 = $15.00 was discounted.

I also had $10.50 in doubled coupons for some of these items.

My total savings on these 30 items was $25.50 - a total savings of 54%. Not bad! And I haven't even taken into account that these items are at sale price, not full price. Even more total savings!

My total bill yesterday at Kroger for these items and the rest of my necessities was $86.20 for $171.o1 worth of goodies. I saved $84.81 with sales and coupons, a savings of 49%!

And I'm stockpiling my pantry, a key part of using coupons to be frugal. Buy low, buy much, and spend less over time.

The Kroger 10 Item Mega Sale runs through April 13 in the Cincinnati area; I'm eager to see the coupons in tomorrow's paper and how they match up to the sale. I foresee many good deals next week, too!

Happy Savings!

I saved big too,. and I got some stuff for free.

I used a bunch of coupons, but I'm most proud of the fact that I didn't buy anything (except the free stuff) that I wouldn't have bought anyways if the sale wasn't going on.

I consider that to be successful couponing: getting stuff free, and not going crazy just because you have a coupon.

BTW, thanks for your recent comment!
