Week 26 - Kroger Trip

I'm going to be 100% honest in saying that I've basically boycotted Kroger ever since they stopped doubling coupons.  I didn't feel like they lowered prices enough to justify that change, and quite frankly I refused to spend our money there.  Over the last few weeks, my view has changed slightly...I mean very slightly.  However, I was excited to see that this week they were doing the 7-up Ten as part of the Mega sale again, and that DiGiorno pizza was cheaper than Publix even with the coupon stack.  What turned out super cool was all the clearance items!  Here's the breakdown:

I bought 12 items as part of the Mega Sale which automatically deducted $6.00 (the sales price reflects this):

5 Bird's Eye Recipe Ready  - Sales Price $1.49.  My Price $-.05! for all 5.  Used 5 of the $1.50/1 Bird's Eye Recipe Ready from 1/12 SS insert.

3 DiGiorno Pizzas - Sales Price $3.99.  My Price $7.48 for all 3.  Used B2G1 DiGiorno Pizza from 1/26 RP insert and the cashier deducted $4.49.

4 7-Up Ten - Sales Price $.99.  My Price $1.00 for all 4.  Used 4 of the $.75/1 7-UP Ten, A&W Ten etc. from 1/12 SS insert.

And I found awesome stuff on clearance:

2 Nice N Easy Hair Color - Clearance Price $2.49 each! My Price $-.02! Used $5/2 Clairol Hair color from 12/29 PG insert.

2 John Frieda Frizz Ease - Clearance Price $2.49 each!  My Price $-1.02!  Used 2 $3/1 John Frieda Frizz Ease from 1/19 SS insert.

After tax I paid $10.06 for everything.  I thought that was pretty good for pizza, hair color, pop and veggies!


  1. I still shop kroger because it is the best option in my town, but I totally agree that they have not lowered prices enough to make up for no longer doubling coupons.

    1. Exactly!!! Kinda cool to finally see some good deals again though! It used to be an awesome place to shop with the Mega Sale and coupons...maybe the pendulum is beginning to swing back a bit? I hope so...
