Fru-Gal Update February 26

One lesson that I teach in my classes is always be aware of your surrounding when you go grocery shopping. There are so many deals that are offered right in the store but you just need to look.
One that I missed was Kroger is having a mega deal when you buy ten qualifying items you get $3 off your grocery order. That ends up being 30 cents an item but to sweeten the deal they give you a $3 coupon for your next shopping order so ultimately you get 60 cents off an item. Good deals if paired with a coupon or a sale. Jimmy Dean frozen sausages are originally $1.49 now on sale for 99 cents with the mega deal taking 60 cents off you get it for 39 cents. Good stock up item same deal for Banquet frozen dinners. I also had a shopper appreciation coupon of $2 off $10 worth of frozen items. That made this deal even better.
