Kroger Shopping Trip

Shopping with the $5 Dinner Mom


Please excuse the scowl!


$.39 cans of Red Gold (after catalina coupon) and $.99 shredded cheese (after store coupon)

Produce – $1.67 Strawberries, $1.48 Cantaloupe, $.39/lb bananas (Bought a few extra to freeze for smoothies) and $.99 Romaine lettuce

Meats- package chicken breast and package boneless chicken thighs

Manager’s Specials – $.99 Pita bread, $1.29 yogurt, $1.19 Rice Milk (I normally don’t buy rice milk, but since it was marked down and I was planning on waffles and pancakes in my batch cooking this week, I thought I’d grab a few boxes), and $.69 half gallons of milk (SHOCK! This one shocked me…sell by date is still 7 days away, so I bought some so I could use it to make waffles and pancakes for Steve)

SPLURGE – Bought 2 Buitoni products for $2 each after coupon!

Total spent at Kroger: $54.18…my splurge sent me over budget!

Wow, that was a great deal on half gallons of milk!! I wish I could find some marked down that much! :)

You find some great savings! Keep up the good work, I was able to enjoy some nice savings this week as well ;)

Those are some great deals! I wish we had more stores like yours near me. I feel like Kroger has great deals all the time. Oh and what a cute helper! :)

You got some great deals and a great variety of foods too!

we get that boxed milk in commodity foods….my daughter and I will drink it, but the other 2 in the house refuse to even try it because it’s in a box. I’ve used it mostly in cooking and they have no clue.
Also, we get powdered milk too. Same thing….I keep a little jug of it made up in the fridge at all times to use for cooking. These milks are free and I intend to make use of them!

Erin, would you happen to know the details on the Red Gold catalina deal you mentioned?

Red Gold tomatoes are on sale at my store for $.89 for the next few weeks…there are quite a few coupons floating around, including several catalina coupons for the Red Gold tomatoes.
