If you have a Kroger store in your area, you are in LUCK!  While they no longer double any coupons, they do have mega events periodically where you can save BIG!  A mega event is a time when they give you $5 off your bill for every 10 participating items that you buy.  These items are marked in the store with tags.

For all you game players out there, this is the time to STOCK UP!!!

Here are some tips for saving some serious cash during these sales:

1.  Make sure to purchase the exact number of items.  You get $5 off for every 10 items.  If you buy 14, you won’t get the discount on the last four items.  I normally put all my participating items in one section of my cart and then place them together on the belt when I check out to make sure!

2.  STOCK UP!  This is the time to buy lots of the items that you will use!  If it can be frozen or will stay fresh, buy extra to get you through until the next mega event.

3.  Don’t buy it if you won’t use it! (Unless you want to donate it!)  It may be a great deal, but it is a waste of money if you will not use it.

4.  Keep an eye out for items that are cheap and don’t need a coupon for maximum savings.  These are great fillers when you are an item or two short of an even 10.

Keep in mind, that every time they do this they are different.  There are some items that seem to show up often, and others only every now and then.  Here are some examples of a few of the items that I will be stocking up on this week to give you an idea of how you can save BIG!
