Kroger Shopping Trip – July 13

Shopping with the $5 Dinner Mom


My quarterly shipment of Combbs Organic Maple Syrup arrived today from Amazon.  This didn’t cost me anything out of pocket because I paid for it using credits that I’ve earned from Swagbucks. If you are not familiar with Swagbucks, I highly recommend it!  Learn more about how you can earn money by searching the web!

I’m thinking about ordering some Golden Flaxseed as well, as I’m running low and a 4-pack would last me all year!

    please share what you do with flaxseed. I know it’s healthy for you but do you use it whole in recipes or grind it and what ratio do you use. Would love the advice. thanks.

      I typically grind it in the coffee grinder and then add it to smoothies or when baking. It doesn’t change the taste or consistency if you are just adding a little (2-3 Tbsp)…much more than that and it can act like an “egg replacer” when baking. Hope that helps!
