Another Mega Item event going on this week…more on that next week. I did get 10 items this week because 5 already were on my list. And plan to get some more for next week. If you have a Kroger nearby, this is your BIG CHANCE to stock up on chocolate chips. Consider ordering extra chocolate chip coupons from this Sunday’s coupon insert…because they are just $.99/bag after sale, promotion and coupon!!! They won’t get any cheaper than that!
Think holidays coming up…
Lettuce bags…just $.59 each! It was a deal…that turned into an ordeal! Sorta.
I couldn’t believe the price of these bags of lettuce. They were set apart from the others, reduced for quick sale. Of course, I looked through the bags and picked out the ones that were freshest. Went on my merry way through the store (can’t you just see me whistling as I roam through the store. ha!). Rang up my groceries and it came out to $61.27.
Because I calculate my groceries as I go along…and it should have rang up under $60. I chalked it up to tax I didn’t figure in (there is no sales tax on food in Ohio, but there is on other merchandise in the store), or perhaps one of my electronic coupons didn’t come off. So I scanned my receipt as I slowly walked out of the store. And sure enough. 1 of the bags of lettuce rang up full price at $3.99.
I don’t pay $3.99 for a bag of lettuce.
So I went to the customer service desk and explained. They verified and refunded my money.
It really wasn’t much of an ordeal. I only share it as a reminder that to check your receipts to be sure that items are rung up correctly!!!
Produce – The $.98 raspberries were still on sale this morning…because they were trying to get rid of them. And I’m so glad…because we ate them all last week before I could make the Chocolate Chip Raspberry Pancakes that are on my “Stock the Freezer” list!
Broccoli was on sale for just $.79 a bunch. THAT is a stockpile worthy price.
But how do you stockpile broccoli?
This price is better than last year’s price. And likely won’t be this low again until next year!
Total spent at Kroger: $61.27-$3.99 = $57.28
I do plan to stop in at Walgreens for the olives that are on sale and to use up some Register Rewards that are about to expire. I should just pay out of pocket for sales tax for the week…so I’ll stay under my $60-a-week-during-September budget
