Kroger Shopping Trip – Mega Event Week

Shopping with the $5 Dinner Mom

I was surprised to see another Mega Event sale so quickly…they just finished one two weeks ago!  And just in time…as we were running quite low on lots of important products after last week’s pantry challenge.

The sale should be running again next week, so I’m hoping to stock up on more Almond Milk, $.49 cans of peaches, pears and apricots (these are perfect for Operation Fatten Up Tyler.)

I also plan to get more free toothbrushes and toothpaste for this year’s Operation Christmas Child boxes! Learn more about OCC and how you can help a child in need this holiday!

  • 2 $.49 Campbell’s Healthy Harvest Soups
