Kroger Shopping Trip

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on August 26, 2009




FINALLY, a sale on beef roasts! $2.49/lb.  I grabbed 3…plus 2 packages of ground beef ($1.39/lb.)

Plus Kroger ran the 10 item Mega Sale again this week, so I grabbed some Propel fitness water for Hubs (he’s training for a marathon), and more rice quakes…both $.49 each after promo!

Free – Box of Kashi cereal (coupon from Vocalpoint)

Produce – Amazing produce sales continue!

Coupons Used – $5/$50 Kroger purchase, 2 $1 Motts applesauce, 2 $1 NV Granola Clusters, $1/2 Quaker granola bars from Kroger mailer, $.50 off Kroger PS Artisan bread (for the paninis!) from Kroger mailer, $1 Stacy’s Pita Chips

Manager’s Specials – 1 loaf of bread, 2 french loaves

Total spent at Kroger: $64.17

In a moment of SHEER swine flu paranoia (don’t ask, I’m over it now and wish I hadn’t spent that $4!), I stopped in to CVS to grab some hand sanitizer and handy sanitizer wipes.  Somehow a few FREE bars of Reese’s PB Cups ended up in the basket (on sale 2/$1…used this Sunday’s $.55 coupon!). 

Total $4.28 OUCH!

In a moment of “I MUST take advantage of this wipes deal,” I popped into Walgreens last Saturday when I was sans kiddos.  I grabbed 2  boxes of Huggies wipes for $.49 each, plus 2 cans of mushrooms for $.49 each. 

Total $2.38

Total for the week: $70.83

I stashed the leftover $10 from this week into my “farmer’s market pick your own tomato fund!”

We went crazy on the ground beef this week. With fall coming around the corner it’s chili time and also lots of baked spaghetti dinners, mostly when we have company. It’s a great deal! I didn’t see the Rice Cakes were in the mega sale! Now I have to go back, but I have to go anyways :-)

Hey I saw this while surfing for deals…and thought it might be something that you might like to get involved in!

Keep up the great work, I love your posts!!

My hubs came home from Krogers with 52.33 in savings (spent 38.16). I have rice cakes galore in my cabinets now! BTW. I love your site!
