My Kroger Trip Today...

When I buy groceries my goal is always to buy everything I need for the coming week: breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks. But there are some weeks that I don't take into account that my husband will go on a cereal kick.

My stash is down to

Ok, maybe there was one box left but it was Kroger brand Lucky Charms for the kids. I didn't realize Jeff would like them as much as they do, especially since it was the ONLY box left.

So today I had to plan a trip to Kroger, and boy, did I hit the mother load.
Now grant it, I didn't have coupons for the milk, the bacon or the Frosted Flakes they were necessities...oh, and the Frosted Flakes were part of the buy 10 get $5 off instantly at checkout.  Here's the run-down on all the other products:

At the end I spent a total of $20.88 and saved....drum roll...$53.73!!  That's a savings of over 60%!!

Thank you, Dear Hubby, for needing more cereal. Hopefully three boxes should last us until the next grocery day, you think?


  1. Cereal used to go really fast around's good for breakfast, lunch, supper and snack.

  2. Yes, yes, yes, and yes! That's when we eat it, too!!
