No Sale at Kroger Means More Savings For YOU

No Sale at Kroger Means More Savings For YOU

Did you know that when you shop these Mega Deals at Kroger sometimes the prices are actually higher?  I know this because when I have checked my price list  I have actually noticed that sometimes things are .10 cheaper (or more) when they are not on sale.


This week I walked into Kroger and saved 44% and I want to show you how to do the same.  I really had no plan going in and just looked for items that were on clearance or items were I had a coupon.



First of all, I always try and set a limit.  Since I only use cash, I have to stay within the limits of my $100 grocery budget.  So I try to spend somewhere around $20 for produce.  You will see a lot posted in this picture because I will shop at Kroger for $1 or less produce items and then I will hit up HEB as well and do the same.

I used digital coupons to get the carrots for less than $1 and I bought a container of lettuce that was on clearance for $1.49 and had a .60 off digital coupon for that.


Digital coupons are AMAZING!  If you are not already on board, make sure that you sign up with Kroger TODAY.  I found that Tide on sale for $3.99 and there was a $2 off digital coupon making it $1.99.  By the way, that Tide was marked down from $7.99.

I bought a 16 oz. block of cheese because it was marked down from $7.99 to $4.99.  I only saved .65 with my digital coupon but I really saved so much more because this item was on sale.

I also had a digital coupon this week that said “Buy $4 worth of fruit in the produce section and save $1″.  I know that doesn’t sound like a lot, but that watermelon costs $1.  Because of this coupon, I got that item for free.

I also saved .40 on the tortilla chips which made those less than $1.  See Kroger knows what you are purchasing because of your Kroger card.  I always get money off carrots, chips, etc.  This makes for good customer service because they want those customers coming back time and time again.

I used to get these coupons in the mail as a Kroger mailer, but now they just upload these into my app.  What’s really fun is when I open my app and realize that I have an item in there that is 100% free.  Which brings me to FREE FRIDAY DOWNLOADS.  This week was a 3-pack of Keurig cups.  I don’t drink coffee, but I’m giving this to my mother-in-law in a basket of goodies.  Just another reason to download their app:)


To save even more money, I always check my coupon clutch and take out the correct envelope when walking down the aisle.  Sometimes I’m surprised at what I can find.  To see how I organize coupons and to learn more about couponing, click here.

I almost always buy vitamins at Kroger.  They are almost always on a Buy 1, Get 1 free sale.  I usually have 2 coupons for Sundown vitamins.  You can use 2 coupons on a  B1G1 free item.  This week I only had one.  (I am trying to get us stocked up on Vitamin C with school back in session.)  But then I noticed that Kroger sent me a $2 off $10 from their health section and I applied this coupon as well.

Kroger sends me mailers all the time because I am on their mailing list.  These make for great coupons because they know what I am buying and send me mailers accordingly.  Let me say something else really fast.  I noticed that those vitamins for $7.99 for 2.  In their clearance section I noticed EXPIRED vitamins that were $3.99 each.  Do the math and you only save .01.  This is where that price list really comes in handy.

I was able to get fruit cups and Tree Top juice for less than $1 because of a manufactured coupon.  These come from the Sunday paper.  If you are not already purchasing the paper, it’s definitely worth the investment.
