Kroger is having a huge “$5 off 10 Participating Items” Mega Event sale this week and next. A lot of the sale items are included in the weekly circular, but there are even more in-store. The best way to find them all is to pick up a Shopping List from a display at the front of the store, which lists all the products. (Some Krogers don’t seem to offer these shopping lists; you could always inquire at Customer Service if you don’t see any)

Almost every product included in the promotion is at a “stock up” sale price, and there are some huge steals if you have the coupons to match.

Here is my loot so far:

10 09 mega sale 1 003

30 items for $22.48, saved $64.08, and I still have more shopping to do.

In this week’s top picks, I’m using the abbreviation “wyb 10” for Mega Event items, and the price I’ve listed includes the extra savings for buying 10 items.
