Grocery Shopping at SUPER Kroger

Grocery Total: $203.67
Spent: $21.54 & Saved: $182.13
101 coupons spent (includes doubled coupons)
25 FREE items (3 Smart Balance butter, 8 yogurt packs, 3 Reach floss, 2 Welch's juice, 2 Wholly guacamole, 2 Cheese-Its, 2 Dole pineapples and 3 Sure deodorant.)

I snuck back out to SUPER Kroger (the Howell Kroger that doubles coupons up to and including $1) this weekend with my girlfriend Alissa- the Alissa who inspired me to begin spending coupons in the first place!!! I love to grocery shop with friends! We get a chance to chat (child-free) and catch up, we shop well (and share coupons) and we each bring home needed groceries for our families! Win- win all the way around!

Another added benefit is that since SUPER Kroger only allows the spending of 3 identical coupons per person, I was able to have Alissa use 3 more of my Dannon and Aussie coupons for my benefit! Have I ever mentioned that I LOVE that girl?

Wow, Laura, I would love to save $182! I really need to get over to that Super Kroger...maybe next weekend. Any tips you can share? I've been to your class, but any specific Super Kroger tips, I mean?

Laura Webber

Yep, I could have saved myself another $1.50 if I didn't NEED a Mountain Dew!!!

Macomb Money Savers

Ha! I didn't even see the Mtn Dew - I only saw the milk! :)

Laura Webber

Ah yes... the milk- highly demanded by my son and my husband!!!

Pam,
My super savvy SUPER Kroger tips are to enjoy your shop... bring all of your coupons and go aisle by aisle matching coupons for items that either you know you have a coupon for or that you hope you have a coupon for. This may sound crazy (other SK shoppers please chime in!!!) but I spend about 2 hours shopping at SUPER Kroger- but the savings are remarkable!

Candice

I spend a good hour and half too! It takes time! I will say you can totally tell which items are going to be dirt cheap (free) with coupons---they are gone!!! I've got to figure out which day they restock!

Hi Candice,
Grocery stores normally receive more goods 6 out of the 7 days in the week. SUPER kroger is an extremely busy location- just be sure to ask for your rain checks!!!

Candice

Darn---I always forget about the rain checks!

Just thought since I saved 112 bucks yesterday i had a few cents to share! The Kroger on Miller road in Swartz Creek also doubles up to 1.00 and allows 3 coupons.

Also, VGs doubles 1.00 coupons
(which I "hear" the one in Fenton allows more than 3 at a time)

Alpine (spartan store in Linden) also Matches $1 Qs up to 3 of them anymore after that is face value.. they also match prices of other stores as long as you bring in the competitors Ads...

Just a little info I have learned..

Im new at this too...
