Let's Go Krogering! {The Thank Goodness for RX Transfer Coupons Edition!}

I feel like a broken record saying this, but it's another week of a ho-hum sale at Kroger. While there are some opportunities to stock up on some great Kroger brand items during this week's sale (like Kroger Peanut Butter for $0.99 ea), the rest of this week's sale is just ok.

Here's my trip to Kroger on Monday, 05/11/09:

Spent: $87.47

Saved: $70.80, or 44%

A big chunk of my savings was a $20.00 Rx transfer coupon for Kroger (expires 06/06/09) that I discovered in the weekly Red Plum mailer about two weeks ago. You might also receive that mailer each week if you live in the greater Cincinnati area; it's usually just a simple two-page deal with oodles of extra junk mail crammed inside - the sort of thing I used to automatically dump right into my recycling bin.

I'm here to tell you - don't dump that junk mail!

Take a minute to flip through some of the *junk* that arrives each day in your mailbox because every once in a while you might just discover a good coupon that makes those extra seconds worth it.

Along with the Rx transfer coupon, I used these coupons as well:

:: $2.00/1 Sara Lee Bread or Buns wyb (2) Lays Chips or Fritos
(Found on tearpad by chips; Sara Lee Buns priced at $2.00 ea so this coupon made them FREE!)

:: $0.55/1 Tyson Boxed Chicken, SS 05/10

:: $0.55/1 Pet Pride Dog Biscuits, Kroger My Magazine mailed coupon

:: $1.00/1 International Delight Coffee Creamer printable here

:: $1.00/1 Activia 4 pk, Kroger My Magazine mailed coupon

:: (2) $0.75/1 Breyer's Ice Cream, Unilever Insert ("Making Life Better") 04/05

:: $0.35/5 Kroger Yogurts, Kroger My Magazine mailed coupon

:: Buy1Get1FREE Sobe Lifewater, Kroger catalina

:: $1.00/2 Oscar Mayer Deli Creations, blinkie found near chips

:: $0.55/1 BumbleBee Tuna Packets, blinkie found near product

(These are now priced at $1.28 ea; if your Kroger doubles, final price = $0.28 ea!)

:: $1.00/1 Fresh Express Salad, Kroger My Magazine mailed coupon

You can see I used a lot of mailed coupons, blinkies, and catalinas; there just wasn't much in the ad that matched up to Sunday insert coupons that I needed or wanted.

Still, I'm happy overall with my savings for this week, especially since my grocery list included enough meat to cook my doubled up meal plan for this week. Next week, I shouldn't need too much at Kroger for our nightly dinners since I'll be freezing the doubled dinners this week.

    I agree Kroger has been a bit dull the past couple of weeks.

    I saw Kraft Mac/Cheese Crackers in the pic. Below is link to a rebate for them.

    I've got the Kroger mailer for $20 rx & I'm hanging on to it. last time it was $25.

    I was excited to see the Kraft BBQ sauce on sale 10/$10. With the $1 IPs and Catalina deal, they paid me to buy it. One store by me gave away free loaves of bread and flavored Dasani water the other day, so Kroger knows it is slow. Memorial Day is coming and I'm sure some deals will be on the horizon.

    Frys store by my house in Mesa, AZ has an unadvertised deal on Gain 32 loads detergent at $2.99 each. WoW!!!! Use the $1 off from the P&G coupon book x3 and get 3 bottles for $6 + tax of course. Great deal.
