Do love finding deals at your Kroger? This feature is for you! Link your post about what deals you found at your local Kroger or Kroger-affiliated store. Simple rules are here; the 149x149 button is in my sidebar.

email me and I'll walk you through it!


Read my Kroger Ad Matchup post for this week (June 29-July 5) right here; the printable Google Doc version is right here.

It's week two of the Kroger Daytona 500 Sale Event! You've still got lots of time to grab the deals and stock up on some goodies; this sale ends Sunday, July 5.

I took advantage of the Betty Crocker Fruit Snacks catalina deal (buy 5, earn $3.50 catalina off your next order) at the start of my shopping trip today; my kids love these (what kid doesn't, right?) but their frugal mama *hates* to pay full price for them. When they're included in a big sale event like this one and they have a catalina deal as well, it's time to stock up!!

My Kroger Trip (transactions 1 & 2), Monday, June 29, 2009:

For both transactions, I used (3) $0.50/2 Betty Crocker Fruit Snacks (SS 06/14), and (4) $0.75/1 Kraft Barbecue Sauce (SS 06/14).

Because the Kraft coupons double to $1.00/1, they generate a $0.31 overage each (Kraft Barbecue is on sale $0.99 - $0.30 Daytona 500 Sale Discount = $0.69). The overage lowers the cost of the Fruit Snacks even more.

Here's how it broke down:

Transaction #1:
Spent: $4.74
Saved: $16.32 or 77%
Earned: $3.50 catalina
(I used this on transaction #2)

Transaction #2:
Spent: $1.25
Saved: $19.82 or 94%
Earned: $3.50 catalina
(I used this on transaction #3)

I loaded those in my van and headed back in with the rest of my list and *most* of the coupons that I purchased through a coupon clipping service for this sale; I need to set up a better stockpile shelf before I max out my coupons.

No picture of the rest of my goodies; I had lots to put away (including a bunch of ice cream!) in just a short amount of time before heading back out the door. Here's my transaction total:

Transaction #3:
Spent: $100.91
Saved: $167.67 or 62%

My total for this week:
Spent: $106.90
Saved: $203.81 or 67%

What deals did you find at Kroger this week? With this sale event, I'm betting some of you out there are racking up the savings! Link *your* Let's Go Krogering! post all week and help another reader save some $$!

**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!**
