I Love Grocery Shopping (Giveaway)

One of my favorite things to do is grocery shop. I like finding new products to try, and I love finding great deals.

In my town, I only have a few choices of grocery stores and my store of choice is always Kroger. They seem to carry the most variety and, as long as I follow their weekly deals, I don’t spend any more there each week than I would at a cheaper place. Plus, the quality is SO much better than the other stores here.

If you live near a Kroger (or Kroger family store), you probably know about their Cart Buster Savings Event!

    What a giveaway! I’d use this when I visit my relatives (they have a Kroger down the street). I’d stock up on Cascadian Farm products (love them) and I love Kroger’s generic brand products. Hope you have a nice weekend

    Mary @ Bites and Bliss — March 4, 2011 at 8:53 pm

    I LOVE Kroger!! I used to think it was more expensicve to shop there than at WalMart..but I save a ton of money by buying their brands and shopping the sales. :) I stock up on bananas mainly! Which is even better because they have “overripe” bananas priced even lower.

    Amy B @ Second City Randomness — March 4, 2011 at 10:04 pm

    I always make sure to stock up on the frozen veggies and cereal. I could probably live for a week off of just those things… not joking!

    Jen — March 5, 2011 at 12:41 pm

    Cereal, canned tomatoes, pasta sauce. And of course paper goods are always a good thing. Side note: I didn’t realize all those stores were in the “Kroger family.” Interesting!

    We have QFC here and they have the best cottage cheese – weird, I know. They don’t all taste the same. Oh, and the usual suspects: toilet paper, detergent, kale, oranges, oatmeal.
