Kroger Shopping Trip – July 13

Shopping with the $5 Dinner Mom

Amazon

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 Amazon.com 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.

@Pamela,

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!

I’m not sure if this is the brand of bagged lettuce you bought but just in case.

I asked for a list of the promotion and my store didn’t have it, is that a regional thing?
