|From Mommy I'm Hungry|
Now let first say this...my kids checked the mail for me during the Summer time, so I had some mail I never paid attention to. Days kept going by and I never save my $30 Kroger Gift Card! So I finally thought I wasn't getting one. Then out of the blue, on Friday, I grabbed a random envelope from a pile and it was from MyBlogSpark!! It was my gift card!! It had been here all along! So needless to say I caught the last week of the The Mega Savings Event at Kroger/Ralph's! Bummer! However (read on below...)
Are you a bargain shopper? Can you get a cart full of groceries out the store for half of what's in your wallet? Maybe you clip coupons and run from store to store to get great deals? Me, I am not like that. Tried it before but it's too much anxiety for me, lol. Too time consuming to clip all the coupons, find the sales, ads, running from store to store...so I just shop sales looking for the best deal on the spot and will even buy store brand on some items to help us save.
The Mega Savings Event is taking place at the Kroger Co., Family of Stores Aug. 16th thru Sept. 2nd - Click here to see a list of participating stores (You should also see your stores or website for exact dates since the special sales dates may vary by area). Look for the double yellow (or blue) tags in-store.
Their deal was when you buy 10 participating brands in ad for that week, and use your Shopper Card, you automatically save $5! There is not limit on the number or rewards you can get per transaction.
Betty Crocker Baking Mixes
Betty Crocker Fruit Snacks
Cascadian Farms Cereals and Bars
Cinnamon Toast Crunch
Dole Juices and Juice Drinks
Old El Paso
Pepsi family of 2 Liters
Quaker Instant Oatmeal
Quaker Chewy Bar
Sobe Life Water
So, after figuring out a list with coupons and all, here is what I got with my $30 gift card plus $2.13 out of pocket. All the red items above is what I bought and on sale. Most things were $2.49 ea. on sale, plus I had coupons. PLUS! Most items have box tops, for my kid's schools! Yay!

I went to my Ralph's website and through them (shortcuts.com) and was able to download additional coupons into my store's savings card! Plus I printed off coupons from coupons.com! Plus Ralph's will double coupons up to a $1. Now I find it confusing reading the receipt, so I'm not sure if it let me use the coupons I had double for with my store card and paper coupon. I hoped they wouldn't know. haha.
So after I already made my list and hoped I was getting the "buy 10 save $5" deal...I realized it was only for items in ad for that week only! Of course nothing I had on my list was in ad this week! Darn it!! So I messed up savings there. Then I had to take my 2 little ones with me, so it wasn't a real organized shopping trip or I could ve rethought my sales with the B10S5 deal, I just grabbed what was on my list and tried to keep it separate from my regular shopping! Oh well, I still did good having coupons! If only I had found my card sooner, maybe I could've done much better! lol
