Kroger Mega Sale

Last week and this week, Kroger is having their Mega Event. Kroger's Mega Event is simple. For every 10 participating items you buy $5 is deducted from your total at the end of the transaction. I love this event. This is the time I buy most of my cereal. This time I was also able to stock up on some other yummy staples of our house like GoGurt. My boys love that stuff. I also bought extra food that we don't eat often (like the Hamburger Helper and boxed potatoes). These will make great donations to the food drives that are sure to come up this fall.

Here is what I got.

8 boxes of YoPlait Go-Gurt
2 cans of Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls
2 cans of Pillsbury Grands Biscuits
2 pkgs of Betty Crocker Cookie Mix
2 bags of Nature Valley Granola Nut Clusters
5 boxes of Cheerios
5 boxes of Cinnamon Toast Crunch
2 boxes of Golden Grahams
3 boxes of Hamburger Helper
7 boxes of Betty Crocker Boxed Potatoes (i.e. AuGratin)
2 cans of Old ElPaso refried beans

Now for the totals.

Total Before Sales and Coupons: $98.70

Total After Sales and Coupons: $26.12

Total Savings: 72.58 (74%)

I spent less than $30 (including tax) and am well set with my cereal and yogurt needs for the foreseeable future. Plus, every item that I bought carries at least one Box Tops for Education on it. I counted my box tops and from just this one shopping trip my son's school will earn over $5.00 from the Box Tops program.

How did I do it? I used coupons for the items on the Mega Event sale. I did not buy a single item that did not have a coupon for it. I also did not buy anything that was not on the Mega Event. I bought 40 items, so $20 was taken off of my total at the end of the transaction. Kroger allows you to use paper coupons, internet printable coupons, and e-coupons. My Kroger also doubles all coupons $.50 and less. (Some areas double up to $.99. So check your local store!)


This is awesome, but we don't have a Krogers!
