Kroger MEGA Sale this week of 8/16 (and next?)

I've really been looking forward to this week b/c Kroger is AGAIN having a great Mega Sale of Buy any 10 participating items, Get $5 off your total order. Even in my very short couponing career I've learned that these sales tend to end up very well for me. I was hoping to see more frozen veggies paired with coupons b/c we could use some, but that's okay.

Overall, there is a LOT I'm excited about! My own tips for working these sales to the maximum and keeping yourself from overspending:


* For the participating items, try to number your "sets" of 10 items. You can buy 10 of the same thing or 1 each of any of the items included in the Mega Sale, but make sure you have increments of 10! If you miss one and end up with 9.... you won't get the extra $5 off your total order for those items (works out to $.50 off per item). Bring a pen with you to the store so you can cross items off as you put them in your cart, OR mark where you've substituted an item (if they're out).

* STICK TO the list! This is just good basic shopping advice. I try to list my sale items on top, and then any/all my other items on the bottom with estimates of what my goal price is for those items (I do this especially for meats). This often keeps me from overshopping, and if an item is not on sale at all (and no coupons) I'll debate whether I really need it that week (often I can make do without). Also, I still know what the register total SHOULD be and I'm never terribly surprised by it.

* CLIP/PULL/PRINT all your coupons from the main stash beforehand. Same goes for LOADING and checking your e-coupons. It just makes the trip faster and this way you know how many multiples of items you can buy at a certain price, instead of buying 6 boxes of something and realizing at the register that you'll only get the rock-bottom price on 2 because you're short a couple coupons.

Much thanks goes to Jenny at Southern Savers, without whom I'd be spending way too much on groceries! (Click the "Weekly Ad" title to go to her FULL post)

As a SIDE note, we're still pretty crazy busy this week; we still have a houseguest who is preparing to move into their own place this weekend and will be pretty tight on funds... So, guess what they want me to teach them?


Yep! You guessed it! Couponing! I'm hoping that like before Kroger will extend this sale through 2 weeks so that I can really make their first trip with me a good one.
