Here’s how she did it!

Charlene says Kroger is listing “all of their school supplies and other items 90% off.” She has family members who are educators, and her son is involved in a ministry that helps distribute school supplies to local families who really cannot afford their own. So, knowing that Kroger was in the middle of this massive school supply clearance, Charlene decided to grab some shopping carts and strike out on her own. Supermarket sweep!

She loaded up two shopping carts which, in her own words, were completely “overfilled”. In total, Charlene had 302 items ready for U-Scan. She says, “One of the Kroger employees was so excited about how long my receipt was and he couldn’t wait to see how much I had saved.”

So how much did she save exactly?

She says the shopping trip was a huge success, not just because of the amount of money she was able to save, but because of the many families who will benefit from her transportation. She says, “We will be able to do a lot with these items and some will be donated to a local nonprofit.”

And, Charlene was certainly willing to extend credit where savings credit was due. “Thank you, Kroger! »
