How I Saved Money With The Kroger Sales Ad This Week (Vlog)!

This post may contain compensated links. Refer to my disclaimer for more info.

I saved loads of money again at Kroger this week!  I hope you’ve enjoyed the series about how fast and easy it can be without clipping coupons at all.  Let’s see what the real bargains are this week in the Kroger sales ad.  Check out the scoop and the video below.

It’s week three of the challenge where I’ve given myself only $65 cash for groceries.  It has been so much fun to challenge myself to use only the cash that I have in my purse.  Here are the four quick steps that we’ve learned so far:

Kroger Sales Ad Savings

The following lists the four hacks from the past two weeks. 

1.  Sign up for a Kroger Plus card

They’ll hand you an application at the store for a Kroger Plus card as you are checking out (you can use right away), or you can apply online before you head to the store.  Trust me, this is a no-brainer because you will save a lot of money even if you do nothing else.  Don’t believe me?  Ask the cashier if you can give her your Kroger Plus card at the end of your transaction so you can watch the number drop dramatically from the retail price.

2.  Find a local savings website for your area

Do you know of a website that does your local deal-matching for you?  This has been a game changer for me because I had no idea what “good sale prices” on food items were.  The deal site that I use is fabulous and services those on the east coast (from the deepest south, over to Louisville Kentucky, and up to the Mid-Atlantic states) by doing the time-consuming work of listing all the deals from the Kroger weekly ad each week.

Our local website scours the Kroger sales ad (and many other stores) and finds the Kroger sales for each week, and then a simple list is there for us to scroll through quickly. From the list, you can “check” the ones you want to buy so that a printable list can be taken with you to the store.

3.  Set a weekly spending budget

So the experts say $100 per person- per month is what a frugal American family should be spending on groceries.  For example, a family of four would only spend $400 (only 100 a week). That’s pretty low, wouldn’t you agree?  I’m ready to try my hand at this and make the stakes a little higher by setting the challenge as only $65 a week instead of $100 (I’d love you to join me).  By using the methods I show you with the Kroger weekly ad and other tips, you can keep your budget very low AND have plenty of meals for wholesome meals.

4.  Sign up for account at Kroger’s website and use digital coupons suggested on your savings site

Quickly go to the Kroger site and sign up.  Go back to your savings site (my is Southern Savers) and click on each Kroger digital card suggested for the items that you plan to buy.  You are welcome to scroll through the Kroger digital coupons that are available this week and ‘add’ them to your Kroger Plus card, OR if you are if a huge rush, only ‘add’ the Kroger digital coupons that are suggested on your savings site.  I explain and show you how below.

I adore this shopping list notepad where I can “check off” the items that we run out of that are essentials to replace each week like milk, bread, peanut butter, etc…..

I hope this has been helpful to you. It’s life changing when you can get a simple system to do a homemaking task that needs to be done every single week, isn’t it?  This is one of mine.  Enjoy!
