The produce isle at Kroger puts me in a salad mood.

Hi, my name is Demetra and I’m a grocery shop-a-holic.  My Last visit to a grocery store was yesterday and I must admit that I’m going back today. I go to the grocery store at least 3-4 times per week, I go whenever I get the urge to experiment with a new recipe…which is often.   Maybe I shouldn’t count yesterday because I was at  Kroger grocery store for a bloggers event, but I did some shopping as well.  I couldn’t resist.  Kroger reps gave our group of bloggers a tour of the store, lots of info on their programs (like their Simple Truth line of products and the beloved fuel points) and a nice bag o swag.   While I do try to patronize local farmers markets, sometimes you need a quick, convenient grocery store to run to so you can get dinner on the table.

Kroger’s Deli section knows my love of Boar’s Head products well. The Sopressata, GENIUS

The folks at Kroger wanted to get out the word about the new lower prices on over 3,000 items, which I appreciate because I don’t use coupons often and lower prices would help my budget out a lot.  Kroger will also do away with doubling coupons (as of September 22) which doesn’t really affect me because any coupons I clip generally end up in the bottom of my purse, not to be found until the day after it expires.

Kroger fuel points are the business. I’m going to shop anyway, might as well get a discount on gas while I’m at it.

The Kroger I visited yesterday was not the one at which I normally shop. The one I frequent does not have this mega drink dispenser. My kids would lose their minds if they saw this beverage center when we went shopping, it’s BANANAS

Gotta go, we’re out of milk…and I need gas

    I have a love-hate relationship with grocery shopping but I’m there every week, coupons in hand scouting out the best deals and saving money!

    I love this article. Wish I could have made it to the event. I am like you most times I don’t remember my coupons until after they expire. I even clip coupons for things I know I’m not going to by.I’m a trip

    I miss Kroger so much! If I had one nearby, I would grocery shop all of the time with very little remorse.

    I love grocery shopping. For me, it is meditative, and fun to save money on combining husband has taken over the shopping, and it drives me crazy! LOL I will make sure that I will get to Kroger before they kill the double coupons at the end of the month.

    I used to laugh a my mother for always needing something from the store on the daily basis…well, I’m the same way I go to the store or a farmers market on a daily basis. I just love to cook, I love making my meals with fresh produce it’s an addition of mine! Love your post, after reading got up from the computer and made dinner.

      I’ve been known to visit the grocery store everyday of the week, too. Sometimes you get inspired and you just need to create, even if that means heading back to the store for the fifth time

    I wish our Kroger was this big – ours is dinky and OLD! But man, gotta love that discount… you can’t beat it!

      Hopefully yours will be renovated soon. Who wants to shop in a dingey store?

    My favorite stores are QFC & Fred Meyer (all owned by Kroger) and I can’t tell you how much I miss shopping there!!! Since moving back to CA, I’ve only been able to visit it’s Kroger’s walmart cousin Food 4 Less and its depressing to have such limited food choices…..especially since I go to the grocery store a few times a week as well!

      so sad that there aren’t good grocery options in your area. Hopefully that will change soon

      Its was a beautiful store, lots of light and a great flow.
      My husband comes home with a bunch of crazy stuff when he goes to the store. Everything will be just a bit off, like OJ with calcium ( which everyone in the house hates)

    Kroger is my grocery store of choice too! I go there about once a week, not as often as you! I do love their prices and my store is always so clean.
