Kroger Shopping Trip – The “I’m Off My Routine” Edition

Shopping with the $5 Dinner Mom

Yes. I am making my own head spin these days.

I cannot believe the amount of traveling I’ve endured this past month. And there is more to come!

I did go shopping before I went to NY last week, but I didn’t have time to get the post done…or even get a picture taken. I was running around like a chicken with its head cut off, and it’s nothing short of a miracle that I got the fridge items into the fridge and freezer items into the freezer.  Although I think there was a moment when I went to put my husband’s yogurt into the freezer!


Then I went shopping again on this past Saturday to get a few things for the Memorial Day weekend, and for this current week.  Here’s what I picked up on Saturday. It was not a stellar trip by any means…just getting what I need…and getting back to my holiday weekend!


Needed to replenish the trash bag stockpile, and get some scrubbies for our back patio.  Plus some milk, produce and jelly. The only exciting part of the trip…getting the “low sugar or no-sugar fruit pectin” for $.89 on manager’s special. I’ll be using that soon to put up some berry jams later this summer.

Total spent at Kroger: $64.30 for last week’s trip, $46.79 for this week

Total for May: $221 +$64.30 = $285.30 (under budget for May…yeah!)

Total for June, week 1: $46.79
