I can't believe it. I have been having such a lovely vacation and this morning I had time to check my email. I am devastated! I just found out that Kroger is going to discontinue its doubling/ tripling of coupons. That policy is what enabled me to save a lot of money on groceries. And it saved me a load of time as I haven't had to shop multiple stores. I always saved enough that on the items that I didn't have coupons for, it was acceptable to me to just pay the sale prices at Kroger and not run to other stores that might be cheaper.
I guess that will change now. Oh, I don't plan to run store to store for deals, since I just don't want to spend the time doing that. But I will be analyzing more closely who in our area had the overall lower prices. We have so much competition in our area. I know HEB has low prices and of course we have Walmart, though I don't love shopping there. Dollar General and Family Dollar have also expanded their grocery departments. So, I will be on a mission, come the middle of April, to figure out which store will get our grocery dollars.
And I think it won't be Kroger. So sad....I have shopped there since I started doing my own shopping and Mom shopped there since they came to Houston.
But I am not going to let this ruin my vacation. We are on the last day and I plan to enjoy it!
