Some days shopping seems like such a chore. Other days it can be more of an adventure or challenge. I was NOT feeling much like shopping yesterday or today, but our fridge was cleaned out and ready to be restocked. I also needed to prepare for my next Two-Week Cooking Project. So shopping was not optional this weekend!
I broke our Kroger list into two trips. We made a quick stop yesterday to grab milk (we were out) and some pitas for dinner at my parents’ house. While we were there, we grabbed a few other things. We had enough that we were able to take advantage of an unadvertised special… a FREE 5-pound bag of potatoes with a $25 purchase. Here’s what we ended up with:
Spent: $13.23 plus tax
Saved: $30.51 (70%)

The best deal this week was the Campbell’s soup at $1.25 each. I had several printable coupons:
-$0.50/1 Campbell’s Chunky Soup or Healthy Request printable coupon or
-$1/1 Campbell’s Select Harvest Soup Healthy Request printable coupon
I was also excited to see the flatbreads and pitas for $1.00 each. We like to keep these in the freezer for pita/flatbread pizzas. They’re perfect for those nights when I forget to defrost dinner or when I just don’t feel like cooking.
Today’s trip was filled with manager’s specials!
Spent: $59.67 plus tax
Saved: $49.06 (45%)
Earned $2.00 catalina

I crossed off a few items that were originally on my shopping list, because I was able to get a sneak peek at next week’s sale flyer. They’re on better sales next week, so I’ll be stopping back this week to pick up those items and a few others that are looking promising.
