Kroger Shopping Trip plus some deals with Giant Eagle and Walmart Comparisons


Kroger Shopping trip

I wanted to show you guys what my “normal” Kroger Trip looks like.  I do the majority of my couponing at Giant Eagle, however I get most of my milk, fruit & veggies at Kroger….Plus I grab a few deals with coupons when I’m there 🙂

To save money, I try to buy the fruits & veggies that are on sale but that doesn’t always happen so I like to think that I save on other items to be able to splurge a little on healthy foods!  This total trip was $70.68….so definitely not a “coupon high” trip…..but that’s okay 🙂

That little ugly thing in the bottom left-hand corner is a ginger root…..anyone else LOVE these things ?

Below are a few deals I found while at Kroger. When leaving to go shopping, I only grabbed the coupons I wanted to use and left my binder at home so I wasn’t able to score all of the deals below…..

  1. Yeah for healthy food – fruits and veggies! I agree I like to be able to spend more on these good choices by saving on the other things we eat. It all balances out in the end. Thanks for sharing!
    And I used the app this week for my GE shopping on my iPhone! Love it- I could use my phone to mark what I was interested in on the matchup, send it to my email, and when I had time I could look thru it and see what coupons I had to print or get out of my binder. Then while shopping I just brought up the email to make sure I had what I wanted- easier than writing it down! Since then I was still needing to go back and forth to the site to find which coupons I wanted and exactly what to buy to get the best deals. You make life easier for my couponing style! Thanks again!

    • Thanks Christy! I just read your comment to my husband:) He spent a lot of time working on it so I get excited to pass along nice comments to him!

    • 🙁 It looks like it’s gone! I almost always put the CID# (coupon id #) in the link so it will go straight to the coupon. When the coupon needs a specific zip, you’ll need to refresh the page to get the coupon to pop up so if it doesn’t then it’s more than likely gone. Bummer! I didn’t even get time to print from my kids’ computers…Thanks for letting us know that it’s gone!

    • Thanks Dana! I’ll add that in 🙂 My Kroger only doubles up to 50¢ coupons (which is why I coupon at GE – haha)

  2. With all of the good creamer deals and frozen stockpile that I have (apparently had), I can’t believe I even need this, but I stumbled across a 55 cents off International Delight creamer on today, and printed one but lost it. If anyone finds it again, please let me know zip code. Just checked tonight and ID is 2/$5, so this is one to print and wait for a sale.
