Shopping Trip – Kroger/Smith’s, 8/4

Shopping Trip – Kroger/Smith’s, 8/4

It’s the second week of the Kroger (Smith’s) Mega Event!

 

I was pleasantly surprised to see that they actually lowered the price on some things for week #2, rather than raising it for week #2, which they’ve done for the last few months.  However, for deal seekers, this is a little frustrating, especially if you go out and buy most of what you need in week #1, only to then find out they lowered the price for week #2 and you could have gotten even better deals…but I guess you win some and you lose some, right?

 

I split my list into two shopping trips – mostly because of some Catalina deals, and because I couldn’t fit it all in one cart even if I had tried!  🙂  I do want to note: P&G has put new limits on their coupons, which state there is a max of TWO like coupons, per household, per day.  I did run it by the store manager to ask if he was okay with me not adhering to the “per day” part – and instead just doing two separate trips back-to-back – and he said he was totally okay with that.  Technically, they did not have to let me.  But most of the time it hasn’t ever been a problem.  But if you want to do something similar, it would be best to check with your store manager first and get the all clear.
