Kroger Shopping: 1/18

Sunday, January 18, 2009 Hand-posted by Jennifer

Edit:  I forgot to highlight the MEGA EVENT that Kroger is having this week.  Silly me!

Mega Savings Event: Buy any combination of (10) participating items, and you'll save $5 instantly at checkout. There is a limit of (3) rewards per transaction. So, assuming that you've purchased (10) of the participating items, you would deduct $5 from your order (or $0.50 from each item): This calculation is already included in my breakdown after the coupon as “– $.50 Mega10”. 


I’ve listed a combination of what I feel are decent prices along with my shopping today.  The number of items I bought are listed at the beginning of the breakdown.  Alot of my shopping are based on my needs and what I want to stockpile or submit rebates for.  Hope you enjoy!

I saved 75% off my bill and only paid $53.03 out of pocket! 

The retail price for all of this was $164.69 and my savings were $123.21.

You may need to look at the Slickdeals thread for any printable coupons you may need or that I may have missed.  I by no means claim to be the best at math and if I messed up I hope you’ll understand.

You may also visit Becky at Nickels-N-Dimes or Marcy at Stretching a Buck for more Kroger Mega Savings matchups.  I only listed most of what I bought but I think they matched up everything in the ad.

    Great trip! I'm definitely going back soon (maybe here in a bit if I can pull myself away from the couch LOL) I have the Steamers and Kraft Cheese at the top of my list. All the cheese was out when I went shopping yesterday.

    YOU DID GREAT! I will post a link to this when I make my posting later. Thanks for the heads up!

    Hi there,
    I thought you might smile to know that my 10 year old said "Wow, that's a lot of food for only $53" :)

    Great Job!
    Makes me wish Kroger was closer to me...

    It does look like alot of snack food but I don't need alot at home and I will donate some to the school like Chex Mix & stuff.

    I love my Kroger and shopping each week to see what's new on sale. I've anticapted this mega event and it was not as grand as the last so I took the opportunity to stock up on chips for the Pepsi rebate.

    Great savings!! Where did you get the Kraft cheese cpns?? I didn't get any Steamers, because my store only had the creamy and cheesy ones. I like the plain broccoli, peas, etc..

    There was a blinkie machine near the Kraft cheese. And it freezes too, I'll be back for more!

    I always pick up blinkie coupons when I shop because I never know when I will need them. It's fun for the kids to do when they are with me on the rare occasion.
