Kroger Meat & Produce

It is Saturday morning. Do you get up early on Saturday morning? The only people I know that do are the ones that go to yard sales and those that may have to go to work. Well, Have I ever told you that I am a sleepy head? I have always been called that. Yes, since I was a small child. I was never told as a child that it was time to go to bed because more often than not I was already in bed by that time. I was (am) very often the last person to get out of bed in the mornings though. To get to the point... this morning I had to take Trevlyn to work at 8am. I woke up about 7:15 which is just too early on Saturday morning for me! On my way back from taking him to work I thought "Hey, I'll stop by Kroger and see what I can buy!"

I walked in and started laughing! They were already taking the shelves apart in the meat department. The Meat Manager told me that people were there as early as 5am, pushing and shoving to get the best deals! He said that the boneless chicken breasts were the first to go. Now boneless chicken breast wasn't on sale this week at Kroger. The regular price is $4.79lb. 50% off that would be $2.39lb. If you are strategic grocery shopper than you know that boneless chicken breast goes on sale often for $1.99lb. My question is "What were they thinking?" The only items left in produce were things that are hard or impossible to freeze like cucumbers and lettuce.

I was amazed! Who gets up that early? Not me!

NO, I certainly don't get up that early unless I have to!

And you're right about the chicken prices. I have noticed that sometimes people get a little crazy with going out of business sales.

Me either! I get up early every other Saturday when I am working and the other one I get to sleep later.

I don't like to get up early on Saturdays either. I guess because I have to get up early every other day. But you know the saying....The early bird gets the worm! I can't wait until you get here and I get to see you! Hurry!

I'm an early bird! But I don't think I want to be at Kroger that early!

I am a morning person. I love to get up early and get my work done because by the afternoon I am dragging.

By the way, do you have a price book?
