Kroger Shopping Trip – July 17

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on July 20, 2009


The weekly shopping trip!

Free: 4 SoBe flavored waters…after sale, store promotion and coupon

Great Deals: 1.5 lb beef roast marked down to $2.52, sourdough bread marked down to $.69, 6 rice cakes for $.49 a piece, PINT of blueberries for $1 each!

And 1 pack of diapers…remember the great diaper deal last week!  I always try to get diapers when they come out to less than $6 a pack!


I also stopped at the local farmer’s stand and got all this for $9.91!  The corn was a bit more than I would normally spend, but it was the first “bicolor” corn I’d seen this year and I couldn’t resist!!!  So sweet!!!  My farmer’s stand has a 50% off “thrift table” where they sale ripe and overly ripe fruits for half off!  Score!!!


I spent $61.13 on the week…$19 under budget!!!  Will “roll that over” into next week and hope to come in under budget for the month!

NIce work! I have found that the more I try to stick to my budget, the more of a game it becomes and the less I end up spending.

I very recently started my own blog with the intention of making it a “healthy eating on a budget” blog. You are definitely my mentor. You are a God-send. :-)
