Saving money without coupons - Kroger
If you are a couponer, you know that Kroger no longer doubles coupons.
And Meijer has followed suit, only doubling until the 25th of this month.
Kroger has advertised that their prices have lowered throughout the store ...
& I am happy to report that I've noticed the price drops!
I been comparing prices & across the board, I've seen a change.
The biggest drop that I've found is in the health & beauty department, especially in make up ...
I'm talking a $3 - $4 price difference on the regular price at Kroger compared to CVS.
That's a big price difference!
Another thing I've been enjoying are the freebie items that Kroger has offered each Friday.
I've gotten free shampoo, toothpaste, & various other items.
These are loaded from the Kroger site right on to your Plus card.
Meijer is doing the same thing -- offering free items through the mPerks program.
I've gotten free milk, eggs & Jif peanut butter.
What I wanted to show you today, though, is how to save at Kroger without using coupons.
Our store has a markdown aisle & you just never know what you'll find there.
Yesterday, there were lots of medicines.
Since it'll be cold season before we know it, I decided that they were worth stocking up on.
I paid $9.33 for the following:
2 Chapstick lip balms - .39 each
2 Halls lozenges - .59 each
1 Robitussin - 1.99
3 Nyquil - 5.38 for all 3
At CVS, the 2-pack of Nyquil sells for $12.99.
At that, it would've been $3 more than I paid for all of these items put together!
Last night, not only did I find some goodies on the mark down aisle, it was a cha-ching at the meat case!
3 T Bone steaks that were $11.99 per pound -- marked down to $3.88 per pound!
This pork shoulder will be awesome in the smoker.
It was originally $2.49 per pound, marked down to $1.74 per pound.
The bad news here ... it didn't ring up the mark down price & I didn't notice til after I got home.
I'll have to take my receipt & this pic to get the difference back.
And to think ... I only stopped in at Kroger to grab a bag of dog food.
This is one way I can lower my grocery bill.
I always take a second to run through the mark down areas of my store just in case there's a bargain.
Here's to stretching my bucks!
