I know what you are thinking. How does helping me win $500 help you save money? I'll get to that, I promise. First, I'm going to have to beg for a minute. Kroger is giving away a $500 gift card and you can help me win! I designed my own Kroger bag and in order to be considered for the $500 gift card, I need your votes. You can check it out here. Or go here, and type in the number 23521 in the search field. You can also go here to design your own bag and here is where the frugal part for you comes in. You'll receive a FREE reusable Kroger shopping bag when you design your own and register your Kroger card. How cool is that? Saving money and the environment, that's a deal! Of course it might hurt my feelings a little if you then wanted to vote for your own bag and not mine. But I'll get over it, I promise.
Here is the image I used in my design of my bag, in case you want to see a better version of it. It doesn't show up very well on the Kroger site.
