    One of the things our family has started doing is buying meat in bulk and then making several meals over the next few days with that meat in smaller portions. Often we will cook it all up on sunday and then refridgerate it and use it through out the week. Time saver too!

    Sydni said...

    I love combining sales with paper coupons and the e-coupons that I load on my Kroger card. Last week I spent $30 and saved $75 on my shopping trip!

    Susan said...

    I too love that I can load e-coupons onto my Kroger card. No need to clip!

    cdziuba said...

    I try not to food shop for as long as possible, and I use up what I have already in my pantry and freezer. You'd be surprised how creative you can be! cdziuba@aol.com

    Sandy said...

    instead of buying canned beans for chili and soups, I buy dry and soak and freeze them when softened for easy use. I buy bulk meat- or at eleast discounted and freeze immediately. mrs.mommyyatgmaildotcom

    coupons are a good source to save. if you watch the ads, go shopping on the days where they have things on sale that you have coupons for. something, you might be able to get for a real bargain or even free, depending.

    I combine their sales with coupons to save money. Thanks!

    kmg365 said...

    Love the idea of loading your coupons onto your savings card-- I hate fumbling with paper coupons.

    Jessica said...

    My current favorite way to save at Krogers is to use my card at their gas station. I can fill up car with 10 cents off per gallon for every $100 I spend on groceries. I didn't know about the e-coupons, though. I will definitely have to try that one!

    Downloading the coupons available to my kroger plus card is great. I save at the store and I save on printer ink and paper.

    I download my coupons from P&G to my card and I use paper coupons from my Sunday paper. I also was print coupons on the interenet but they were putting virus on my computer so I stopped that. I just got on shortcuts.com and entered there for more coupons. Thanks for the find!

    Barbara said...

    Fred Meyer (a Kroger company) is always one of the cheapest places to buy gas here, even at full price. I like the fact that they offer me a 3 cent discount just for having a card with them, and a 10 cent discount if I spend $$$ in the store that month. It's a huge savings for me.

    vmkids said...

    love to use the coupons in the store that spit out

    cathy said...

    the fuel rewards program allowed me to finally buy gas for under two dollars last week. What a great program. buy $100 with your kroger's card and you get ten cents a gallon off. Then if you use your kroger credit card you can take fifteen cents off instead of ten. that's a great deal

    Brandy said...

    I add the Shortcuts coupons to my card as well as clip paper coupons in every Sunday paper. You can use both together for the same products!! I do the P&G ones, too and I definitely fill up the gas tank on the way out to get my 10c off per gallon.

    Jean said...

    I save the P&G coupons to my card (love that feature) and I print the ones they have online as well as clipping coupons from the Sunday paper. Every little bit helps!

    bengelke20 said...

    I have been a Kroger Card Member for years and even have the Kroger Credit Card which saves even more on gas!! I highly recommend it, however I never knew you could load coupons onto your Kroger card! That is pure genius and can't wait to start doing it!!

    miriama said...

    I have their ad mailed to me, clip coupons from the ad and save coupons at home as well. Then I combine them and often get things free.

    I linked to your site.

    Fangirl Jen said...

    I shop on the first Wed. of the month. It is Senior Citizen discount day, and I save an extra 10% in addition to sale items and coupons.

    Mandy said...

    I can't begin to tell you how much money we have saved by doing our grocery shopping exclusively at Kroger. The coupons by mail and saving on gas are just a couple of the reasons they can't be beat!

    ky2here said...

    Same as the others: I combine the savings from my kroger check card with the preloaded internet coupons. Very convenient and fast.

    heather said...

    i love the e coupons

    *Meg Larsen* said...

    I love shortcuts, it's so handy to browse online and load things to my card. I never remember to bring coupons with me, so this works great!

    Pinkadot said...

    I look at the ads then stock up on all the sale items. If I have coupons I can really save big.

    mogrill said...

    I use Sunday paper coupons and combine them with sales!

    Brooke Lorren said...

    Love their double coupons! They have great sales, especially combined with the ecoupons and regular coupons.

    tarahsfoodreviews said...

    I love their Kroger Plus Card, they track what I buy on a regular basis and then send me coupons for those items! Plus the more you spend, the less you pay for gas through them.

    I also love that they let you use the online coupons and tag them to your Kroger card so you're not using paper. And when they double the coupons too - always great!

    Put the electronic coupons on the card and your Kroger card should be like the MasterCharge slogan from the 70s -- "Don't Leave Home Without It" :-P

    Jai said...

    I'm a real coupon-clipper, but it takes so much time. I love the downloadable ones. But that's just the tip of the iceburg. I had no idea that I could get three months of my prescription for $10! I've been paying $40 a month! That alone will cut my costs $440 dollars a year.

    pitaharmon said...

    They always have manager specials, we get alot of those, and I usually clip coupons, but now (I haven't done it yet, but I will) you can go online, click coupons you want, they go onto your Kroger card and when you scan it at the checkout, the coupons come off your bill! I like that because there is no more clipping.

    Lisanne624 said...

    The best thing is to use the shopper's card at Kroger. Not only do you get immediate savings, but they also frequently send out coupons that are targeted to items you frequently purchase. Also, you get fuel discounts. Many ways to save!

    maddgiggler said...

    My favorite way to save is one Kroger did not list but other comments have mentioned. Kroger will send targeted coupons quarterly based on items I've purchased that have been tracked using my Kroger card. Free water, cereal and store coupons on the brands that I use. Awesome!

    My favorite thing is loading coupons onto the loyalty card. Second is the fuel savings and third is the customer service. I do love Kroger stores.

    Tammy said...

    One of my favorite savings tip is to price match - I gather all the flyers circle the best prices on the items, and then buy everything at one store that price matches, much simpler doing one trip, instead of visiting every store. I spend less to, because if I entered each store to get the deal, I'd probably buy something else as well!

    zanicole said...

    My kroger card is the first way to save. Also, their website has coupons you can print -- which helps, because I don't get the paper. :)

    Heather said...

    Planning meals in advance and shopping from a complete grocery list saves SO much money in "quick trips to the store" or spontaneous purchases. I make a game out of it and NEVER buy anything that isn't on my list.

    Kelly F said...

    I love that you can load coupons onto your kroger card online. It is great in many ways. Not only is it convenient for me, but it helps the environment by eliminating the need for printing paper coupons. Win/win situation!

    I like using the online ads to see what is on sale before going to the store. For some reason our ads are almost always late so this helps me. I also use the grocery list that is with the online ad. Great idea!! This way I can organize the coupons to go with my neatly typed list..
