Kroger Shopping Trip – March 1

Shopping with the $5 Dinner Mom

This week I stopped in to Kroger, and then into Walgreens.  I really had no intention of stopping at Walgreens, but because I only spent $46 at Kroger AND a $2.50/1 Huggies coupon arrived in the mailbox just before I left for the store, I decided that a stop in for this week’s Huggies deal would be worth it.

The Huggies deal is…buy 3 packs at $8.99 each and get $5 RR back.  I had printed 2 of the $2/1 coupons and then got the $2.50/1 coupon in the mail.  So armed with 3 high value coupons, I went for it!  Spent $22-ish after taxes and coupons.  Plus I got $5 back!

Sorry…my camera battery died and the charger has not surfaced yet. (Still working on unpacking from February’s adventures!)

*HOT DEALS*

  • $.99 for 5 lb. bag of Gold Medal Flour – On sale $1.99, used this coupon (These are on sale until 3/21, so I printed 2 more coupons from the laptop and will get 2 more $.99 bags next week!)
  • 4 boxes of Taco Shells – $1 each

Free – Bag of Dole lettuce, lettuce head, bag of potato chips,

Produce – Bag of Cutie’s oranges (used newspaper coupon)

Meats – 3.5 lb. pork loin at $1.89/lb., 1 package split chicken breasts at $1.19/lb

More Freezer Cooking Shortcuts…what I did with the pork loin…

  • Cut off 5 thick pork chops
  • Cut the remainder of the pork into large chunks…to use to make slow cooker Carnitas! I placed the chunks into a freezer baggie with some oil, salt, pepper and ground cumin.  Plus a dash of lemon juice.  Then put into the freezer.

The freezer is filling up quickly with meats and their marinade in freezer baggies!

Total spent at Kroger: $46.35

Total for the week: $66.35 plus $5 RR back

    What are some other meats that you preseason/marinate before freezing?
    Could you share how you prepare them? Thanks, Donna
