With the price of groceries, gas and everything else going up, it is important to save on everything you can! Kroger can help save you money on groceries, gasoline and much more.
I've found that, among all local grocery stores, Kroger has the best prices. And I am especially excited about the 14 day CartBuster event coming up. Starting on February 27, 2011 through March 12, 2011, one Deal of the Day will be posted at the Kroger's site. The Deal of the Day will be posted between 12 PM and 6 PM and is while supplies last and up to 1,000 items will be given away each day. You'll need to register your card to add coupons to it and there is a limit of 150 coupons per card. Each Deal of the Day will be available through the end of the event (while supplies last).
Here are more of my favorite grocery-shopping tips!
1. Make sure you have a frequent shopper card
Whether you are shopping at your local grocery store or chain drugstore, be sure to sign up for their frequent shopper card. And don't forget to sign up for Kroger's digital coupons.
2. Make a list
Many people plan their weekly menus around what is on sale. Some focus on stocking up on loss leaders (those items usually in the front page of the ad that are offered at deep discount to get you to come into the store). I tend to do a little of both- stock up and plan my menu around the flier.
Lots of stores now offer 10/$10 items. For example, Kroger offers 10/$10 items. Match these sales with coupons and you have a really good deal! For example, if Barilla pasta is $1 a box, and you have a 50 cents off 1 coupon, you get that item for free.
3. Stick to the list
It can be very tempting to add other items to your cart besides ones of the list. But try and stick with it. The exception is when you see an unexpected good deal, like roaster chickens on sale. Then if you find the price is excellent, stock up!
4. Keep those Catalinas
I love Catalina coupons (they print at the cash register at the end of the order). Most people throw them away, but before you do that, take a look and make sure it isn't for something you can't use! And Catalina coupons aren't just $ off products. Pampers, for example, will print out a Catalina coupon with a Pampers Rewards code on it.
