Back In The Saddle-Kroger 11/09

We were so low on groceries once we got back from our Mexico trip!! So, yesterday I worked on coupons for a bit. I still had to clip last weeks coupons and look through this weeks. Then I finally had a chance to look through the Kroger ad.......WOW! The "mega event" looked awesome. So, I made a list with a few staples to get us started and maxed out the mega event deals (you can do it 3 times per transaction). Here's all I got for $33.79. Pretty good.....even after a vacation, don't you think?

I got 40 items so that breaks down to $.84 an item!!

I saved $56.18 and got a fuel discount credit of $72. E-85, by the way, is $1.45 a gallon ($1.35 with discount)!

I only got bananas since I'm planning a trip to the new Murphy Sprout's this week. If you go on Wednesday, it's double ad day. I can't wait to check it out!

I also tried to do a CVS run yesterday, but couldn't find the Loreal. What a surprise....haha! So, I'll rework my list/coupons today. Depending on the rain, I'll go today or this evening when I take my daughter to dance. It's great to be home!

Well I am jealous. We don't have ANY E-85 available for 40 miles or more. We've had our SUV for 18 months and never put a drop of E-85 in it. SAD!

Closest Kroger with gas is 10 miles.

If I shop at a Kroger that does not have gas, will I still earn the gas credits? It would be worth driving 10 miles if I could.

I haven't even looked at the ads this week. I better get in gear.

You went to Mexico. We went to Nashville. I seriously could live there.

I still think the gas credits will accrue! E-85 is still pretty rare here. I think only 5 or 6 Kroger's have it in DFW, and I got lucky with one close. I really didn't know much about it until I bought the Tahoe. But.....with gas going down so much, now a 10 mile drive might be worth the 10 cent discount. Maybe work gas into an errand in that direction?

BOO! From the land of NO Krogers!

Kroger is fun! But, we have no Kmart's here. Feel any better??

Also, wanted to say thanks for mentioning the new Sprouts. It's a little closer for me than the one in Plano, and I had NOO idea there was a new one. :-) I went there this past Wed and was psyched to get pineapples for $.88!!!!! I've been paying $3.99 at times (though that pains me) ... so I snagged several and they are delicious!!! :-) Thanks for letting us know. :-)

Yay!!!! I'm so glad I spread some useful news!!!!!
