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. As always, please add a link back to me in your Krogering post.

There are a few good stockup deals this week since Kroger is running a 10/$10 Mix & Match Sale. Remember, you'll get the $1.00 price no matter what - you don't need to buy 10 items for that price!

Also, today only, Kroger (Cincinnati Region - other regions?) is running a One Day Sale, Tuesday, 12/01/09 with 50% select Kellogg's, Keebler, and Sunshine products. Click here for the price + coupon matchups for that sale.

My Kroger trip, Monday, November 30, 2009:

We still have some leftovers from Thanksgiving as well as a packed pantry so I didn't need much this week. I also plan on swinging through Kroger this morning to grab some deals on cereal during the one day sale; I'll add a picture of that trip to this post later today.

Here's the cost breakdown of my Monday trip:

Spent: $36.46
Saved: $25.54, or 41%

The coupons I used yesterday (just a few this week):

(2) $0.55/1 Bumblebee Tuna Pouches, SS 09/13, $1.00 ea
Final price: FREE!

(1) $0.75/1 Breyer's Ice Cream, RP 10/18, $3.29 ea
**Buy (3) Breyers, Get $3.00 off instantly at checkout!**
Final price: $5.87/3 Breyers or $1.96 ea

(1) $0.75/2 Barilla, Kroger loyalty mailer coupon, $1.00 ea
Final price: $0.63 ea

(1) $0.55/1 Kroger Cheese Slices, 12 oz, Kroger loyalty mailer coupon, $2.46 ea
Final price: $1.91

(1) $0.55/1 Kraft Cream Cheese, Kroger loyalty mailer coupon, $1.25 ea
Final price: $0.70


My Tuesday One Day Sale Trip 12/01:

Spent: $4.21
Saved: $24.99, or 86%

I was a bit bummed by the prices because the base price on all the items that were marked down by 50% had changed just a bit from when I previewed them Monday night. Just proof that a "great" sale isn't always such an awesome deal - you really need to know your prices! Luckily, this one day sale had lots of great coupon matchups.

Coupons used:

(2) $1.00/1 Apple Jacks, found in a promotional magazine in my pediatrician's office (price $1.59 ea)

(2) $1.00/1 Special K printable coupons (price $1.89 ea)

(1) $0.75/1 Special K Pretzel Bars printable coupon (price $1.64 ea)

(1) $0.50/any fresh fruit when you buy Special K printable coupon (3 lbs apples price $1.50)

(1) $1.50/any store brand coffee when you buy (3) Kellogg's cereals (coffee price $1.89)

(3) $0.55/1 Bumblebee Tuna pouch, SS 09/13 (price $1.00 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).

    Great trip on Tuesday! I wish I had more time to prepare, but lately I'm so unorganized. Maybe I'll get my act together when the baby is a bit older:)
