Kroger Shopping Trip – The Mega Event Edition

Shopping with the $5 Dinner Mom

Mega Event week!

This sale started last week and there are some rocking deals to be had!!!  I waited until this week and took a few extra minutes that normal to plan my trip.  I was able to get all the delimeat and cheese that Steve will need for his lunchbox sandwiches.  I restocked the pantry with a variety of canned goods, mainly the vegetables that Tyler likes to munch on!

And then there’s the salsa. We won’t need to be buying any of that for the next few months!  Baked Salsa and Black Bean Chicken will be on the menu again soon!

Also, I did order some Ro-tel coupons and plan to go back to Kroger later in the week to take advantage of the free cans of Ro-tel I will also be grabbing some more canned tomatoes, as I have a few more coupons for those to use up! (Read more about ordering coupons to help you spend less on those pantry essentials.)
