Let's Go Krogering! | Week of February 21, 2011 {Daytona Mega Event Continues + 10/$10 Sale Begins!}

Wondering what's the deal with my weekly Let's Go Krogering! (LGK!) posts?
 Click here for more information.

This week at Kroger, the Daytona Mega Event continues (save $3.00 when you buy 10 items now AND get a $3.00 catalina off your next order to save later); this sale offers some great stockpiling opportunities since the $3.00 catalina you earn at checkout is rolling, meaning you can use the $3.00 catalinas on another transaction that includes Daytona Mega Event items.  Yesterday, I used the (2) $3.00 catalinas I earned last week to further lower my total out of pocket.  WOOT!

Like I mentioned last week, remember to save those $3.00 catalinas you get at checkout!  I know, I know, I'm preaching to the couponing choir, but  if you don't have a coupon organization system in place yet (see some ideas on organizing your coupons here), you may simply misplace those valuable catalinas and miss out on the chance to save in the future. 

My advice to those of you who are still getting organized: tuck those $3.00 catalinas in your wallet so that you can use them on your next trip to Kroger.  They expire in 2 weeks so be sure to use them! 

Onto the deals!
