It's an excellent resource.<BR/><BR/>Glad you listened and thanks so much for taking time to comment!<BR/><BR/>;)Marianne Thomashttp://www.blogger.com/profile/02657624957929650534noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-569688858142828321.post-69895141184954375112009-02-12T18:05:00.000-08:002009-02-12T18:05:00.000-08:00I do CVS, but not as well as others, and Kroger ne...I do CVS, but not as well as others, and Kroger near Houston.... love it, but the folks behind me either love what I'm doing or they can't wait for me to leave! They are surprised when I let them in at CVS when I have multiple orders! So. it's all good! Heard/saw you guys on the blog talk tonight, sent my sister to it )in Massachusetts)... She called me cause she got her first attemp at at $14.00 item for 4.00 at Walgreens though. I told her she needs to do CVS~ if she thought that was good. I have been telling her for months, so maybe she will try cvsing up north (since they have no Kroger).Laurhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/02503953474772029019noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-569688858142828321.post-46822213588511528992009-02-04T13:55:00.000-08:002009-02-04T13:55:00.000-08:00Oh I totally love this... but alas, I couldn't tak...Oh I totally love this... but alas, I couldn't take pictures of my krogering this week since the painters were here and already laughing at me as I was telling one of my girlfriends about my stellar day at Kroger! But I did well for me... $Spent 59.66 - saved over 45% with lots of free or almost free items. Maybe next week I'll get my picture taking act together!

We get 300 "points" on our rewards card and we'll get that next quarter. UGH! Looks like I'll be shopping at Albertson's this weeek instead. They have a bunch of 10 for $1 sales this week. :sigh: I just can't win. =( =) LOL!Heather &amp; Chaoshttp://www.blogger.com/profile/17347958324457057177noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-569688858142828321.post-73905633252017100332009-02-03T10:21:00.000-08:002009-02-03T10:21:00.000-08:00Heather: Thanks for pointing out the difference in...<STRONG>Heather</STRONG>: Thanks for pointing out the difference in the weekly ad timing. <BR/><BR/>I know even among Kroger stores, not just affiliates, some regions also run their ads Wed - Thurs. <BR/><BR/>It's a little confusing, but the good thing is if you're in a region where the ad starts later, you do get to "preview" some of the deals via the blogs.<BR/><BR/>And I'm glad to post what deals I find/use + link my friend <A HREF="http://www.mommysnacks.net" REL="nofollow">Andrea's</A> fuller listing of coupon matchups. My hope for this weekly feature is to create a reference point where all of us who love Kroger can find the best deals each week, including the ones not always listed in the ad.<BR/><BR/>Thanks for commenting!!<BR/><BR/>;)Marianne Thomashttp://www.blogger.com/profile/02657624957929650534noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-569688858142828321.post-28810831391167402152009-02-03T09:10:00.000-08:002009-02-03T09:10:00.000-08:00You know, I have ralph's here in southern CA (same...You know, I have ralph's here in southern CA (same difference it looks like) but my sales go Wednesday - Tuesday. So today is my lat day of the Mega match up. Looks like you are two days ahead of me. I'll definitely keep checking back with you on deals and steals so I can use them when I go to my Ralph's!! Thanks for all your information and all! I know it's time consuming to post but so helpful!
