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.

My Krogering Trip - Monday, February 1, 2010

Spent: $46.73
Saved: $97.17 (68%)

The Mega Sale Event continues this week so be sure you get your stockpile of much-used items for your family replenished before Sunday, 2/7.

I made a couple of quick trips into Kroger over the weekend as well to use my $2.50/1 Finish Dishwasher Tabs coupons that expired on 01/31/10.  Whew - those Finish boxes were FLYING off the shelves!  I had to swing through Kroger three times before I found enough; the first time I went, the shelf was totally empty.  I wasn't mad, though - it makes me smile to know there are so many other smart couponers out there saving BIG bucks for their families.  Coupons ROCK! ;-)

I grabbed some stockpile items for our family today and you can bet your sweet clipping scissors that I'll head back to Kroger on Sunday 2/7 before this sale is over to max out my coupons and deals!  I'll wait until Sunday so that I know what next week's sale items will be and I can adjust/budget accordingly. 

Don't forget that you can order coupons from my favorite coupon clipping service to maximize your savings during these Mega Event Sales at Kroger.

Coupons used 02/01/10:

All the items I purchased on the left side of he table were Mega Event items, 40 total.  I had a coupon for all of them -- such a fun sale!  Rather than detail all the coupons here (and wear my fingers out typing like a madwoman), check this updated list of Mega Event matchups here and check the unadvertised deals post here to locate the coupons I used.
