Kroger Mega Event Etc ...Saved $143.31!!

Is it sad to say that I had a lovely time in the aisles of Krogers with The Husband? Well I did. No kids, just the two of us. Him pushing the cart, me throwing in the stock. First time I have grocery shopped late at night without the girls. We were blessed to have our very responsible nephew stay last night, aka babysitter!

I pulled my coupons, wrote my lists and set out with four envelopes labeled Trans #1, Trans #2, Trans #3 and Just In Case. It was like a ghost town in the store! The shelves were pretty well stocked, so even after my raid there was still plenty to go around. Here is what I was able to buy:

Why did u do 4 transactions? Is there a limit on the Mega Event discounts you can have in one transaction? Just wondering I plan on going tomorrow.

Hattie:

My krogers only double/triples three like coupons in one transaction. So to get all the pepperidge farm etc, I had to split up my transactions. The fourth transaction was unplanned due to finding a free item catalina. I believe there are no limits on how many ME discounts per transaction. Two of mine took three off. Hope you get some great deals!

Hey,

Just wanted to let you and your readers know that I did a transaction with 5 Mega Event deals in it. I didn't have any problems and they all came off.

I am having such a great time with this event. I am looking forward to making a few food donations over the next couple of months.
