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. {This week, it really is!}

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!


You can view my new feature, The Dollar Menu @ Kroger for this week at Kroger, Cincy Region, right here. I've matched up the best deals at Kroger for $1.00 or less to make planning your shopping trip easier.

My Kroger trip, Monday, October 19, 2009:

Spent: $59.08
Saved: $43.22, or 42%

There are some decent sales this week, but nothing to get too excited about. The best deal I see is the Buy 4/$10.00 Post Cereal, NV Granola Bars, or Fiber One Bars, get $4.00 off instantly at checkout. There are several coupon matchups for those items.

However, if you haven't bought your Halloween candy yet - or maybe you, like me, have been tasked with getting candy for your child's class/school - you can take advantage of a SUPER catalina offer on Wonka & Nestle bagged candy through October 25, 2009.

Buy 2 bags (11 oz or larger) Nestle or Wonka Candy, get $1.00 off your next order.
Buy 3 bags, get $2.00 off your next order.
Buy 4 bags or more, get $3.00 off your next order.

I bought 16 bags of candy in (4) transactions earning me $12.00 in coupons off my next order which I used to lower my overall total today.

Nestle Mix-Ups: $2.00 ea
Crunch Crisp, Butterfinger Crisp, 100 Grand, $2.50 ea

Want to make this an even sweeter (lol - what a pun!) deal?

Use the $1.00/2 Nestle or Wonka coupon in the RP insert from 10/18 to save even more!

Here's the coupons I used on the rest of my shopping today.

-->(2) $0.40/1 Fiber One Bars ($2.50 ea, part of buy 4, get $4.00 off at checkout deal this week), GM 09/13

-->(1) $1.00/2 Post Shredded Wheat ($2.50 ea, part of buy 4, get $4.00 off at checkout deal this week), found on inside of box (The boxes I bought today have this coupon inside as well so be sure to check yours if you plan on stocking up.)

-->$1.50/2 Cheez-Its ($2.75 ea), RP 10/04

-->Buy6Get1FREE Yoplait Cups ($0.50 ea), GM 09/13

-->$0.55/1 Tyson Chicken Nugget Box ($3.45 ea), SS 10/11

-->$0.55/2 Duncan Hines Cake Mixes ($1.00 ea), SS 10/11

-->$1.00/2 Starkist Tuna Salad pouch ($1.69 ea), blinkie found above product

I made a quick trip to Kroger over the weekend for -- what else? -- more milk for my weefolk and more fresh fruit and salad. That was $9.42; with what I spent today, I'm at $217.77 spent on groceries/household items for October. I may not hit my $250.00 challenge, but I'm sure going to beat my budgeted $350.00. Woot!

How'd you do at Kroger (or your Kroger-affiliated grocery store) this week? 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 MckLinky so everyone else can find your deals (rather than just linking back to your blog's homepage).
