So, in follow-up to my post about how I save money at the grocery store I thought I’d put a little info. about what I’ve saved lately and let you in on the greatest sale EVER that’s going-on right now at Kroger.
Right now Kroger is having a Mega-sale where you buy 10 items (ten of MANY preselected things) and you get $5 back. Depending on what you buy, this could turn-out wonderfully. MoneySavingMom has more information and lists of things that are on sale, so rather than repeat the work she has already done, I suggest you check it out for yourself. Basically, what happens is that there are tons of items that after the discount, end-up being 50 cents, $1, $1.50, and $2.00. Now, if you have coupons for those items, then you’re really lucky! There are a LOT of coupons out there for these items that make them free or nearly free.(especially in the past few weeks of the newspaper inserts, although you can find lots on the Internet.) I suggest deciding what you want to buy and then checking-out HotCouponWorld’s coupon database and find-out where the coupons are. Now would also be a great time to sign-up for The Grocery Game’s free trial if you have a Kroger in your area. I can’t even tell you how many Pillsbury crescent rolls, Grand’s rolls, pizza dough, and cinnamon rolls I have in my fridge right now that I got for free! The free items make the more expensive items even out a bit when the $5 comes off the total.
This was my shopping trip last week:
Original Total: $84.77
Kroger sales savings:$31.42
Price I paid: $24.25
I saved $60.52!!!!
Here’s my Kroger trip yesterday:
Original Price: $76.10
Coupon Savings: $21.05
Kroger Sales Savings:$26.11
I paid: $29.54
I saved $47.16!!!!!!!
These totals also included things like milk and bananas that weren’t on sale, as well as sale items like pizza and ice cream that normally cost more. This sale will be going-on for another week, until April 15th. Check-out your weekly flier or Kroger.com to see what’s on sale, make sure you go to MoneySavingMom to plan-out how much it’ll cost, print or cut coupons, and this would be an EASY way to get started with sales/coupon shopping. Have fun!
