Cart Buster Savings Event and Giveaway
I mentioned in a previous post about my start down the road of pursuing a more frugal lifestyle. What does this mean exactly? Well, it means that my family and myself are going to try and save money wherever we can and this means watching the ads for sales. With this said, I would like to pass along some information I just received: It seems that Kroger and its Family of Stores is having a Cart Buster Savings Event. From now until March 14th, you can save on a variety of name-brand products such as: Honey Nut Cheerios, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Pillsbury, Betty Crocker, and Hamburger Helper to name just a few. I could go on naming more of the participants, but if you just take a look at the photo on the top of the page, you can get a pretty good idea as to who is participating.
If you're not sure whether you have a Kroger's near you, here's a list of some the stores that belong to the Kroger family: Kroger, Ralph´s, King Soopers, City Market, Dillons, Smith´s, Fry´s, QFC, Baker´s, Owen´s, Jay C Food Stores, Hilander, Gerbes, Food4Less, Pay Less Super Markets, Scott´s Food & Pharmacy, and Fred Meyer.
I will be covering this in more detail in a later article, but for added savings look around for some manufacturer coupons you can use (you can go to coupons.com). I know that General Mills has several that are currently active. I'll be heading over to Fred Meyer tomorrow and I'm going to be on the lookout for some items that I can put in the pantry I'm starting. Oh, and since this will be my first pantry, I'm open to any suggestions as to what to put in it.
Now for the part you've been waiting for: They have provided me with one card to give away to a lucky reader. If you would like to receive a $25.00 gift card, just let me know in the comments and I will pick one lucky winner. If you happen to win, I'll send your mailing information to Blogspark and Kroger, who will send you the gift card.
legal stuff... The Kroger Family of Stores and General Mills provided me with the gift card, information, and giveaway through MyBlogSpark.
