Kroger Cart Buster Savings Event & 24 Hour Giveaway!

Ok my fellow Frugalistas, time to get your shop on! Going on now through Sunday, March 14th the Kroger family of stores is holding a Cart Buster Savings Event!

What is the Cart Buster Savings Event you ask? Basically it means that you will save a lot on a ton of great brands from P&G and General Mills with big price mark downs. Use some coupons with this sales event and you have yourself a stock up opportunity!

Here are some of the brands included in the event: Honey Nut Cheerios, Hamburger Helper, Betty Crocker, Pillsbury, Progresso, Cascadian Farm, Yoplait, Pampers, Bounty, Charmin, Pantene, Crest, Iams, etc, etc, etc! Just look for the special yellow tags around your store.

In this past week's Sunday paper there was a HUGE P&G coupon insert with lots of coupons that I am sure will work great for a lot of the items on sale. I plan to go to Fred Meyer tomorrow afternoon to check out the prices and stock up on some cereal! My daughter LOVES Honey Nut Cheerios!

Speaking of stores, this event is taking place exclusively at Kroger and the Kroger family of stores including: Fred Meyer, QFC, Ralph´s, King Soopers, City Market, Dillons, Smith´s, Fry´s, Baker´s, Owen´s, Jay C Food Stores, Hilander, Gerbes, Food4Less, Pay Less Super Markets and Scott´s Food & Pharmacy.

So let's get to the really exciting part!

  14. The thing I go gaga for when it's on sale is Barilla pasta, and it's on sale right now @ Ralphs (Kroger) as it's named here in CA. 10 for $10.00.....ahh if I only had more cabinets. LOL
    Oh I also stock up on "necessities of life" of course like Candies, chips, and dips. Need I say more? Love your blog, now if I would only remember to check it more often. You always have the best info. Thank You

  15. We get down with the Veggies from Trader Joes mostly, but try to buy from the farm stands because it supports local farming community. But for our pets, we stock up on frozen chicken cutlets and snack type treats. With a baby on the way soon (we hope), my wife and I will be stocking up at diapers, and baby supplies from Fred Meyer because they are closest to our home, and have the best prices.
