Today Is The Day Kroger Shoppers

That's right...today is the day that Kroger will DOUBLE your manufacturer coupons valued at $0.50 to $1.00! So make sure you take advantage of it while you can. There are some really great deals out there so now is the time to stock up. First thing this morning I went to our local store and did my shopping. Granted we didn't really need much as our cupboards and freezers are pretty full, but there were a few deals that I didn't want to pass up.



Each store will have it's own coupon policy (some take internet coupons and some opt not too, so for those that know your store location will accept them...check out Coupons.com before you go and load up.)

Depending upon the store itself, they may or may not allow you to check out with multiple like item coupons in one order. The ad does state that they only allow one coupon & like item per transaction, but I have heard that it varies by location as to whether or not they will let you do do multiples. My store did not allow it, but that was ok with me. I just broke my order up into several transactions and each of my coupons were able to be used with no hindrance. This was another reason I planned to go early in the morning...that way there would be less crowd at the registers. In fact I was able to use the self scan checkout and not tie up the main lines. So it was a win-win for everyone.

Here's how I fared on my trip for what you see in the picture...

As always, I prayed before entering the store and GOD certainly did give me favor. GOD is good all the time, and all the time GOD is good!
