Kroger Streak – Consider it BROKEN!

I think the title says it all…..  I went to Kroger last night and for the first time that I can remember, I saved more than I spent!  I took advantage of the “Buy 10 items, get $5 off” sale they have going on now.  I was really looking forward to stocking up on the Green Giant Steamers that were going to be FREE.  Unfortunately, everyone in my area must have been too!  The frozen food section was wiped out (Kroger frozen veggies are 88 cents right now).  Even though I brought my list from home with all my corresponding coupons, it still took me a few minutes to reconfigure what I was going to buy to maximize my savings…  what a bummer!  I’m planning to try Kroger again on Saturday to try to get those free steamers.  (I just noticed the Diet Cokes are upside down, ooops!)

    You must have a very thirsty family!! I need to check out your Kroger blog. I can’t ever find much there but haven’t shopped the 88 cent sale yet.
