Kroger owns me.

I admit it.  I am Kroger’s bitch.  It all started with the spring’s ridiculous rise in gas prices.  Kroger has ways you can save with your Kroger Plus Shopper’s Card:  you get three cents off per gallon any time, ten cents off when you have used your Kroger Plus card to buy $100 in groceries, and fifteen cents off per gallon when you use your Kroger Rewards credit card.  During the summer, with regular unleaded hovering at four dollars per gallon, I gave in.

Before all this, I’d separate my shopping:  I’d get some stuff at Kroger, some at Publix, some at Target, some at Wal-Mart.  Now, I get it all at Kroger, unless it’s not available there or I can get it at a better price elsewhere.  Gotta get up to $100 in groceries, you know.   I haven’t totally given in to the Man; I still go to the Farmer’s Market or a roadside vendor for my seasonal veggies and fruit, but when it comes to toilet paper, I know exactly where I’m getting it.
