Let's Go Krogering! Week of March 23

Posted by Marianne Thomas | 3/24/2009 02:00:00 AM | | 8 comments »

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!

The deals this week at Kroger are ho-hum; nothing stellar to give you a couponing high (oh, 10 Item Mega Event - you will be missed!).


Here's what I bought this week at Kroger:

Spent: $92.67
Saved: $52.57, or 36%

Best deals I found:

{Please note: in my March 22 SS insert, there was also an insert for Kroger with MFR coupons in the back; I note these coupons as K 03/22. I don't know if this was regional - I live in the same region as Kroger headquarters - or if this was a more broadly distributed insert. Please let us know if you received these coupons as well!}

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, 03/31/09, 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!**

    Is the Orville Redenbacher popcorn b1G1 free in the ad or an unadvertised special? I have lots of Q's for popcorn I have been waiting to use!

  3. Marianne Thomas // March 24, 2009 6:43 AM  

    Suzanne: the B1G1 Free OR Popcorn is an unadvertised deal -- I was thrilled to see it!

    It's on all the 3 pk and 4pk (snack size specialty flavor) boxes.

    Use those Q's!

    Anon: Thanks for letting us know that you didn't get the Kroger insert in E. Michigan.

    I was logged in with the wrong account- can you delete that NSLYCC comment?
