when asked…i will most likely always choose Kroger over Publix. I feel like you can save more and there is more variety there. and i dislike how small the grocery karts are at Publix (I mean, really, Publix…if your carts were bigger, people would buy more, increasing your sales. just a thought.)
back to the point…my Kroger is notorious for running a really good sale and when we (my mom and I) go to partake, a.k.a., save some money, they NEVER have it. apparently, they ran out. Really? Again? Are you serious? just some of the thoughts that go through my mind. in this case…it was time for us to stock up on Tyson Chicken. they had none. and since the sale runs all week they wouldn’t give us a raincheck. i guess they think people ALWAYS have time to come back to the grocery store.
so there lies the love/hate relationship with Kroger. Love te store. Hate the sales.
a piece of advice:: if you have a Sam’s/Costco card (which i would highly recommend paying the $40 a year for it) get the Frozen Tyson Boneless Skinless Chicken there. for a 6 lb. bag, it’s $11.00 dollars. that’s $1.82 a pound…cheaper than the $1.99 sale Kroger was running. you can’t beat that. yes, you have to thaw it in a ziploc bag in the fridge the night before….but it’s worth it. also…i tried this tonight for the first time….very tasty. and on sale. even better…
Did i really just blog about that? yes, yes i did. :)
