My Kroger Trip Friday, January 20, 2012

I headed out to Kroger again early Friday evening and it was NUTSO!  I was so busy yesterday afternoon running errands, picking up my kids from school, visiting with a friend, and getting my oldest off to basketball practice that I totally missed the weather updates about the impending ice and snow.  My Kroger was PACKED!

My boys and I managed to get in and out quickly despite the crowds. I had a bunch of coupons that I ordered from my favorite clipping service* that had arrived plus some great printables that made for some sweet deals.  Since we're celebrating my youngest's birthday on Sunday, I needed some Skyline Chili supplies, too....mmmm!

This week Kroger is featuring a 10/$10 sale with several participating brands that have available coupons.  Remember you don't need to buy 10 items to get the $1.00/item price.  There are some nice freebies to be found as well so be sure to check through all the links to Kroger matchups and updates at the end of this post so you can get the best deals this week and maximize your savings and stockpiling opportunities.

I also made a trip to Meijer this week because there were several *stellar* deals available this week on items that my family uses weekly.  Be sure to check out my post about my Meijer trip in case you'll be headed out to your local Meijer before the sale week ends on Saturday.

I'm sure I'll make my way back to Kroger later this week for more deals...and for birthday party supplies for my youngest.  I'll be sure to post an update to this post with details on the deals I find.
