After a great trip to Cleveland with our college friends, now we’re heading to St. Louis this weekend to celebrate our new nephew’s baptism. We’re really excited to meet Ezekiel and spend time with my family for a couple of days. Since we weren’t home long, I haven’t done a full restocking trip yet. I shopped a bit on Monday to pick up the good deals at Kroger and we ate from the pantry, freezer and garden (lots of zucchini!) for the week. Here’s what I bought at Kroger this week.
I was thrilled to see sugar on sale at $0.99 for 4 pounds. There was a limit of 4 but I all bought all 4 bags I could! This is truly a loss leader – but it got me in the store so it worked. I also needed some more flour for all the zucchini bread I’ve been baking. I wanted fresh lettuce for salads this week and at $0.99 a head, Kroger’s prices match Meijers. I had a coupon for $1/2 Suave products so I picked up conditioner for $0.50 a bottle. Finally, I picked up my free Hormel breakfast (from the recent Friday freebie) and a free bag of Ritz chips (which I won in the Kroger back to school sweepstakes). Yay for freebies!
At Kroger, I spent $6.23 and saved 69%. This brought my total for July to $177.36. Whew! Right under budget, which always makes me happy. How did you do this month with your grocery budget?
