Thank you to everyone who linked up last week! I so enjoy seeing how well you do at your Kroger or Kroger-affiliated stores. Deals galore!

Remember, this linkup is open not just to Kroger shoppers, but to anyone who shops a Kroger-owned chain store (like Shaws, King Soopers, Ralphs, etc; click here for a full list of Kroger-owned stores). And this linkup is open ALL week, from now until Sunday 03/01. I hope you'll share your savings!

Here's what I bought this week:

My Krogering Trip: Monday, February 23, 2009

No spectacular deals; I actually threw a few items in the cart for which I didn't have a coupon {*gasp*} just because we needed them or I knew my kiddos would like them. One of the nice things I've discovered during the past year of shopping with a hard-core couponing strategy is that I have more wiggle room in my budget for those *just because* extras.

Spent: $71.06

Saved: $46.26

Here's the breakdown on Q's used:

::(2) Kellogg's Frosted Flakes, $2.69 ea

Remember, you can click here for my printer-friendly GoogleDoc of this week's Kroger Ad/Coupon Matchups (Cincy Region). Please let me know by a comment if I missed any good deals; I'll revise the list asap!

To see my menu plan for this week (built around these deals + what I had in my freezer and pantry), click here.

And, just because I love to save you time, click here for the full grocery list of items needed for my menu plan this week. It's also a GoogleDoc and you should easily be able to print it right from your browser. Let me know if I missed any ingredients so I can revise it as soon as possible!

I *heart* going Krogering! I hope you'll share how much you saved when you went Krogering this week! Leave your link below and be sure to come back next Tuesday, 03/03/07, to see what I find next week and to link up your own Kroger or Kroger-affiliated store deals!


**As always, please add a link back to my Let's Go Krogering! post in your Krogering post and be sure that you add your post's permalink to the Mr. Linky so everyone else can find your deals (rather than just linking back to your blog's homepage). Need help doing this? Email me and I'll walk you through it!**

Thanks for reading and subscribing to The New Frugal Mom!

    I am so wanting to be a part of this but my dh keeps being the grocery shopper in the family for the last few weeks! And if I asked him to take a picture, I'd think he'd think I was nuts! Well he already thinks I'm nuts but that's ok. =) Maybe I'll join just by a blog post hmmm. But I do need to get better about coupons etc but I do find Ralph's is much cheaper to shop at then the other stores around here. Thanks for this!!!

    Heather: He'll love you for saving so much money!!! (And be slightly in awe of you...!)

    If you want to join in by blog post (without a picture), that's fine, too.

    Take care!

  4. ABOUT US // February 26, 2009 10:56 AM  

    I was tring to get the coupon for the Oscar Meyer Sandwich Kit and I can't find it. Can you help me?

  5. Marianne Thomas // February 26, 2009 11:49 AM  

    About Us: Sorry about the mixup. I write a column once a week for Jennifer @ Sisterly Savings and I recently wrote up the Oscar Mayer Giveaway posts for Sisterly Savings. As a thank you, Jennifer sent me a few of the freebie coupons.

    Ever so sorry for the confusion!
