Fred Meyer Specials
This is the sixth month of testing the specials at Fred Meyer (Kroger) for families who are stocking their 90-day and long term pantries. Fred Meyer, with their weekly coupons, are still showing a strong lead for economy in offering at least 1 meat or poultry product, 2 or 3 fresh fruits and veggies (some organic) and at least 8 or 9 coupons each week that save you money on staples like canned tomatoes, canned beans for those of you who are just learning how to cook with and eat beans in casseroles and entrees, and in milk/dairy/juice with weekly coupons. They have had coupons for medium cheddar cheese (2# loaf) every other week in their Sales Flyers. I receive my flyer in my email inbox by signing up at
