Kroger TX April 2, 2009

I decided to climb back into the bargain hunting saddle today. I can't promise I'll be fully committed to the hunt. But, I think you can expect to see some regular bargain run breakdowns here in the coming weeks. Breaking down my little bargain runs seems to be helpful to people. So, here you go. I tried to get my total up using items I needed to use a $5/30 coupon. These are the items which were of interest to me personally today, and the coupons I used...
