This feature is posted every Tuesday by 5:00 AM EST with a Mr. Linky at the bottom if you'd like to add your link to your own post about what deals you found at your local Kroger or Kroger-affiliated store. Please click here to read the rules ; the html code for the 149x149 button is in my sidebar.

Feel free to link up to this all week and share the good deals you find at your local Kroger or Kroger-affiliated store! As always, please add a link back to me in your Krogering post. Not sure how to do this? Just email me and I'll walk you through it!

A big thank you to those of you who have linked up to Let's Go Krogering! in the past two weeks and to my bloggy buddies who are promoting this linkup on their own blogs. You're helping to build a great resource here - I deeply appreciate it.

I *heart* you all!

Given the screamin' good deals (yes, that was my attempt at a Nascar-themed pun) with the continuing Daytona 500 Sale Event (buy 10 participating items, get an instant $3.00 off your order at checkout; limit 3), I do hope that this week will bring even more bloggers linking up their awesome finds.

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.

Here's what I bought this week:

My Krogering Trip: Sunday, February 8, 2009

I wanted to take advantage of last week's price on milk and OJ ($1.00/half-gallon) as well as buy some nearly free cereal. The store was out of half-gallons, so the full gallons were priced at $2.00.

The Multigrain Cheerios and the Honeynut Cheerios are still on sale for $1.67/box this week; use these coupons to get either variety for $0.67/box (assuming your store doubles coupons):


$0.55/1 printable here and here


$0.50/1, 01/18 SS

My Trip Totals

Spent: $13.76
Saved: $17.83, or 56%

My Krogering Trip: Monday, February 9, 2009

I didn't make it to the store until late last night; I've got two sick kids here who would not have tolerated Krogering at my normal time this morning.

I found some great Store Manager markdowns: Private Selection Guacamole kits (in the produce section) for $0.75 (I could eat guacamole all.day.long), and Sachs Raw Shelled Peanuts, 1 lb, for only $0.50 (hubs loves these).

Want to see the coupons I used? 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!

Trip Totals

Spent: $68.46

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, 02/17/07, 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!**

Thank you for reading and subscribing to The New Frugal Mom!
