Kroger Shopping Trip

Shopping with the $5 Dinner Mom

As to be expected, I came in way under budget this week!  Mainly because I did not buy a “full load” of groceries, as most of us will be away for half the week.  I did, however, snag some great deals, as well as get all stocked up on chicken breasts for the next round of batch grilling!!!


(Milk not pictured…left it in the car…and so thankful I remembered it out there…before it was too late!)


  • 2 $.50 boxes Creamette pasta – $1 sale, used $1/2 store coupon (I’ll be getting that $.50 Barilla pasta next week!)
  • $1 cheese slices
  • $.67 Kraft Raspberry Vinaigrette (my fave store bought dressing!) – $1.67 sale, used $1 coupon from All You magazine
  • $.49 loaf Soft & Smooth Sara Lee bread – $1.49 sale, used $1 store coupon
  • $.99 loaf Arnold Whole Wheat bread – $1.99 sale, used $1 store coupon
  • 2 $1.50/half gallon Almond Milk – $2.50 sale, used 2 $1 store coupons


  • 2 Colgate toothpaste – $1 sale, used 1 $1 store coupon and 1 $.75/1 newspaper coupon (doubled to $1)
  • Dozen eggs – used 1 free item store coupon

  • 3 pkg chicken breasts – $1.99/lb

Other Odds and Ends

  • Splurged on box raisins and juice boxes for the plane ride
  • Splurged on Starbucks coffee for Steve

Total spent at Kroger: $53.84
