Question How often do Mega Sales come up?

I've been out of the couponing for awhile...how often does Kroger run a Mega Sale? not the duration...but how long before a new one will come around - approximately?

Off the top of my head, 2 times a year... ish. (total guess)

Total guess though. Last time they inundated me with cleaning supplies, this time with Grands Biscuits and Granola/Snack bars. Guessing the next one will be cleaning supplies again! LOL.

I haven't been using the Mega Deals very long, but in the time that I have, I can't discern any pattern to them. I guess they just want to keep us guessing.

According to my records (i.e., I scan all my receipts), the most recent Mega Deal sales have been:

8/16-29/09
7/12-25/09
3/08-14/09 (these sales tend to last two weeks, but since I went grocery shopping only once this month I don't know which was the other week)
1/18-31/09
11/02-15/08

In the intervals between Mega Deal sales, there are similar, but less good (imo) $3 or $5 deals with Proctor & Gamble and NASCAR.

I am so bummed. I totally goofed on the mega sale at Kroger. Kroger ads run from Thursday morning to Wednesday night so our mega sale ended Wednesday, September 2. Cub ads run from Sunday to Saturday, Schnucks run from Tuesday to Monday. Keeping track of the grocery ads start and end dates, plus what coupons I have, is harder than keeping track of my family's schedules! So, I realized last night that I could get 5 Grands biscuits for free, three Betty Crocker mashed potates for 20 cents each, a Hamburger Helper for free and two Sobe lifewaters for 25 cents each. At nine o'clock when I realized this I was so tired I didn't feel up to going to the store so I said I would go right away in the morning. The minute I walked into Kroger I realized I had totally goofed. I'm so annoyed at myself! I need to keep telling myself that surely the Grands and potatoes will be back to $1 each. I just wanted to build up my stockpile!
