Let's Go Krogering! | Week of September 12, 2011 {New Mega Sale Event Begins!}

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

Read on to see what deals I found at my Kroger this week...

My Kroger Trip, Monday, September 12, 2011:

Another Week of NO Krogering!

I never did find the hot P&G items on the shelves at my Kroger last week (specifically, the Febreze Noticeables which were a deal money maker with MFR coupon). Oh well - sometimes, that's just how the coupon cookie crumbles.  ;-)

There is a great new $5/10 participating items Mega Event which began at Kroger yesterday.  Lately with Mega Events, I tend to do my big Mega Event shopping the second week of the sale so I can check the blogosphere for the full list of participating items and coupon matchups, organize my coupons, order additional coupons from my favorite clipping service, and then make one big Mega Trip for the deals and be done.  I'll be hitting the Mega next Monday, I promise!

I also didn't need to shop Kroger this week because I had two great coupon to use elsewhere: a $5/$25 Save a Lot coupon available via Facebook and a $20/grocery purchase coupon for Meijer that I received when refilled a prescription last week.  I had intended to use it last week to bring my Meijer shopping trip total down to $8 from $28, but the pharmacy was running late on filling RXs and I had an appointment and needed to get on the road.  No worries - I just saved that $20/groceries coupon for this week and saved big!

 The Meijer catalina machines have been printing TONS of the $5 off, $10 off, and $20 off grocery coupons when you fill Rx/transfer Rx all summer long for myself and for a recent coupon convert friend of mine who also shops Meijer (holla, A!).  Be sure to check your Meijer catalinas carefully as you may luck out and get one as well.  

Here's my Monday 9/12/11 trip to Meijer & Save a Lot:

I hope to hit Aldi to day for grapes (fingers crossed that they're still $0.75/lb!) and $0.49 avocados (thanks for the heads up, Savings Lifestyle!).  Last week, I went over budget by about $5 but this week I will be coming in well under budget. WOOT!
