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 the ad matchup for this week at Kroger (it's an awesome Mega Event week!) right here (thanks to Andrea at MommySnacks!).

My Kroger trip, Monday, October 26, 2009:

Spent: $30.21
Saved: $92.99, or 75%

On the left side of the table are my Mega Event sale purchases. This is my *favorite* kind of Mega Event sale because there are a wide variety of items with coupon matchups. That makes it a perfect stockpiling opportunity!

Note that this sale is a 2 week event, ending November 8, 2009. That gives you plenty of time to order coupons from a coupon clipping service like this one or this one if you see items in the sale that are worth stockpiling for your family.

Also, be aware that there are several items included in this event that are not featured in this week's ad. One I found that I was thrilled to see were the Bumblebee Tuna Pouches. These are $0.99 on sale and then $0.49 after the Mega Event discount of $0.50/item. If you have any of the $0.50/1 printable coupons from SmartSource.com (the link looks to be gone or dead), you can get them FREE or to get $0.51 overage if you Kroger doubles. WOOT!

I also found some peelies for Fritos above the product, B2G1FREE! With the Mega Event prices, I paid only $1.00 ea for the three bags after the coupon. Be sure to look for that peelie at your Kroger.

AND, one last thing. Kroger has a special sale TODAY, Tuesday 10/27, from 12pm - 7pm, with great deals on Halloween candy. You can match those sale prices up with coupons to fill your treat bucket for pennies!

Snickers, Milky Way, Starburst, 8.7-11.4 oz, $1.48 ea (limit 10)
-->$1.00/2 Mars Candy Bags, RP 09/11 and RP 10/11
Final price: $0.98 ea!

Butterfinger, Nestle Crunch, Baby Ruth, Laffy Taffy, Nerds, or Wonka Mixups, 9.5 -12.5 oz, $1.48 ea (limit 10)
-->$1.00/2, RP 10/18
Final price: $0.98 ea!

**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!**

(I'm having some linky issues with all my link services! Thanks for your patience!)

    How did you know your Kroger was having a special Halloween candy sale? Is it marked in the store too so I will know?

    Sarah: There was a flap on the front of my printed Kroger ad this week advertising today's (10/27) one day sale.

    This is something my Kroger does every year - along with the one day sale from 12-7pm on Tuesday today, they're offering free activities for the kids in-store. I'm in the Cincinnati area; I don't know if all regions do this.

    Hope that helps!

    Wow - you got some amazing deals. I can't wait to head over to Kroger I have been getting my list and coupons together.
