If you’re anything like me, you LOVE it when stores have REALLY GOOD sales, especially on the things you always buy and the things you always need.

For the past two weeks, Kroger’s Weekly Ads have been advertising their Mix & Match – Buy 10 Save $5 Sale.  If you’re not familiar with their Mix & Match – Buy 10 Save $5 Sale, Kroger has specific items that are included in the sale and as long as you mix and match the participating items in multiples of 10 with your Kroger Plus Card, then you’ll save $5 at checkout.

The items I like to stock up on when Kroger has their Mix & Match – Buy 10 Save $5 Sale, are:

  1. Kleenex
  2. Hefty Slider Bags
  3. Creamette Pasta
  4. Green Giant’s Canned Vegetables
  5. Del Monte’s Canned Diced Tomatoes
  6. Swanson Chicken Broth
  7. Campbell’s Condensed Soups for cooking


During the sale, Kroger has Kleenex on sale for $0.99 a box! With our crazy Ohio weather, anytime Kleenex is on sale for this great price, I stock up!  Especially with three little kids in school (one in grade school and two in preschool) it’s inevitable that they’re going to come down with a cold, so being prepared with Kleenex is a must!

I also like to stock up on the Hefty Slider Bags during the sale.  The two sizes I like to buy, are the Storage Gallon Size and the Storage Quart Size.  The Storage Gallon Size has 15 bags in the box for only $0.99 and the Storage Quart Size has 20 bags in the box for only $0.99!  If you’re like us with little kids, the Storage Quart Size bags come in handy for snacks on-the-go!Another thing I stock up on is pasta.  My kids love pasta!  If they had their choice, they would eat plain pasta at every meal!  In the Mix & Match – Buy 10 Save $5 Sale, Kroger has the Creamette Pasta on sale for $0.49 a box. Can you believe that?  $0.49 A BOX!  As a working Mom who doesn’t have the time to make my own pasta, $0.49 a box is a steal!  I stock up on Elbow Macaroni, Penne Pasta and Spaghetti.

This is also a great time to stock up on Green Giant’s Canned Corn and Green Giant’s Canned Green Beans.  We use canned corn and canned green beans in many recipes we make, so when it’s on sale for $0.49 a can, I stock up.  Plus, since our kids like to eat vegetables these are great side options for many meals.We also make a lot of recipes that include canned diced tomatoes.  I typically like to buy petite diced tomatoes with green chilies, chili ready diced tomatoes, petite diced tomatoes with jalapeños and petite diced tomatoes.  Most of the time I incorporate two cans of diced tomatoes into my recipes, so when they’re on sale for $0.49 a can, I buy all that my kitchen cabinets can handle.

Another item I like to buy when it’s on sale is chicken broth.  Many recipes I make in the Instant Pot require chicken broth, so when I can buy the good Swanson Chicken Broth for $0.49 a can, I stock up.  In addition to chicken broth, I also make many recipes that require Campbell’s Condensed Soups for cooking.  Therefore, when they’re also on sale for $0.49 a can, you can bet I stock up!

So the next time you head to the grocery store, make sure you give the Kroger Weekly Ad a look before you go, there might be a REALLY good sale going on that might save you a lot of money!

What are some items you like to stock up on when they’re on sale for a really good price?
