Crystal’s $99 Kroger Grocery Shopping Trip

If you’re brand-new here, I practice the Buy Ahead Principle — which implies that what we purchase weekly is frequently for future weeks. We stock up on the very best offers and markdowns weekly which implies that we then have a range of products from previous shopping journeys to utilize to prepare a menu from.

With the boost in grocery rates, I’ve chosen to raise our grocery spending plan to $100 a week due to the fact that I’ve not been having enough wiggle space to stockpile like I’d wish to. This quantity will still challenge me to be imaginative while likewise offering me sufficient breathing space to stockpile and continue to practice the Buy Ahead Principle.

In addition to practicing the Buy Ahead Principle, I Reverse Meal Plan. This implies that I prepare based upon what we have on hand plus what great sales/markdowns I discovered at the shops. (Read more about Reverse Meal-Planning here.)

Here’s what I purchased for $99.78 at Kroger today…

I was thrilled to discover a lot of meat and bread markdowns. I stick these in the freezer to utilize for future weeks.

And I lastly discovered a chicken offer!! It seems like markdowns and sales on chicken have actually been so scarce, so I was enjoyed discover 3 huge bundles discounted!

This was a respectable offer on bacon! I purchase it and freeze it to utilize for breakfast for supper nights.

The kids requested for cereal and I not just got the huge boxes of Kellogg’s cereal on sale for $1.79/box today (plus, you can get a complimentary book from Kellogg’s for each box you purchase!) and I discovered Cascadian Farms cereal discounted to $0.99/box!

Kierstyn enjoys grapes, so I constantly purchase some when they are $0.99/pound.

Can you think all of those produce markdowns?? I haven’t seen this numerous in month and months!

Mandarin oranges are on sale for $3.49 for a 3-lb. bag with the digital discount coupon!
