Super Savings Saturday and a GIVEAWAY!
This is a the result of my grocery shopping this week. I made two stops at Kroger, 1 stop at a discount grocer in the "big city" when we went into town, and 1 stop at CVS.
When I stopped at the discount grocer, I got a liter of extra virgin olive oil, two bags of organic whole grain pretzels, five large cans of organic tomato soup, and (ahem) a package of fruit rolls for Ben. My total was $18. While we were in town, I also grabbed a few pounds of Sucanat from the Health Food Store.
My stop at CVS left me with 4 boxes of cereal, a Gillette Fusion men's razor, 2 packages of True North snacks (really tasty and a pretty unoffensive ingredient list), a tooth brush, and a box of Wheat Thins. The total before ECBs, sales, and coupons was almost $40. I spent $8.30 out of pocket and have $5 ECBs for next week!
Stop 1 at Kroger yielded two bags of organic tortilla chips, a can of tomato paste, and organic apples. It was about $5. Stop 2 at Kroger, I got most of what is pictured. Kroger is running their Cart Buster Special through today, and they have many name brand items on good sales. Combined with coupons, this makes for some great deals! I was given a $25 gift card by General Mills and Kroger through My Blog Spark to check out the sale. After coupons, sales, and the gift card, my total was $49 for most of what you see pictured!
The groceries we got this week combined with what I already had in the fridge, pantry, and freezer, should be able to last us for at least two weeks. I may need to go out and get some more fresh produce and milk at some point, but other than that, we're set!
