Kroger Shopping Trip

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on February 9, 2010

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.)


Total spent at Kroger: $42.03


1 pack Huggies $8.99 – $2/1 Coupon = $7.99 plus got back $3 RR

2 containers of Wet Ones – on sale 2/$4 – 2 $1.50/1 coupons = $1 plus got back $1 RR

Total spent at Walgreens: $8.90 plus $4 RR to use nest week

Total for the week: $50.93

Total for the month: $118.87

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 know!!! I just looked up the weather and was hoping it would be warmer! Oh well…it’s still warmer than here!

Unfortunately, it’s not sunny and warm anymore(in TX). Cold front came through last night, brrrrrr.

I know…I was sad to see that it will be colder when we’re down there…but it’s still warmer than here!!!

Hi, I live in northeast Ohio, and don’t know of any Kroger’s. Where do you live in Ohio?

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.
