Kroger Shopping Trip

Shopping with the $5 Dinner Mom

We’re off to TX later in the week, so I didn’t need much…just a few things to tide us over.

And yes, those are frozen dinners for Steve…for when we’re away.  There are some meals prepared for him in the freezer…but not enough to cover while we’re in TX. So I figure a few frozen dinners for $1.88 a piece beats a few dinners out for $10 a piece. Right?!?

(And if you’re curious why we’ll be in TX…I grew up there and we have LOTS of family and friends there!)

It has nothing to do with the fact that it’s below freezing here in OH…and it’s warm, sunny and 70 in TX.

Nope. Nothing at all. (said with a facetious tone.)

    I don’t know how far south you are headed in Texas, but it is in the 40’s in Houston today and is supposed to be like that all week. Sorry you can’t get away from the cold!

    I’m sitting here wrapped up in two blankets reading and laughing my hiney off. It was fairly warm here in Tx last week, but this week as you’ve already discovered it’s blooming cold. I don’t know how you folks survive where it gets cold and stays cold every year.

    Have a safe trip and enjoy your friends and family.
