If you missed my post earlier this week, I love saving money at Kroger! My grocery shopping trip to Kroger this week was another reminder of how much I love Kroger. I saved 71% or $29.22, spending only $12.14. Here’s what I bought.
Every single thing I purchased had a digital coupon attached this week. Oops. Okay, the cheese did not but it was a great deal at $2.99 for 16 ounces.
Thanks to digital coupons (several of which could be used up to 5 times in one transaction), I got Lysol wipes for only $0.99. The Herbal Essence 2-in-1 shampoos were $0.50 each. The Hefty quart sized bags were $0.99 and at a perfect time, since I was all out.
The Hormel meal and candy were free, thanks to recent Friday Freebies. Neither of them really seem like something we’ll enjoy, but I can easily donate them for free!
I got the new Peter Pan Simply Ground peanut butter for $0.50, and the Annie’s mac and cheese for $0.50. The Back to Nature mac and cheese were $0.75 each, and I was able to redeem them for a $0.75 Ibotta reward, too.
Thanks to all those digital coupons, as I said, I spent only $12.14 and saved $29.22!
Then, the kids and I went down the road to Meijer. The first thing I did was buy two $50 Meijer gift cards, because for the next couple weeks, you earn $5 back to spend on your next gift card purchase. That’s like free grocery money which I am happy to take!
Then, we bought the rest of the grocery items shown below.
Our tomatoes are growing like crazy in the garden so it’s time to can salsa! I bought 6 pounds of onions, a pound of jalapenos and tomato paste to use in the salsa.
I also bought bananas ($0.64), sweet corn (4 for $1) and 5 pounds of potatoes ($1.49).
Chunk cheese was $1.49 when I used an Mperks coupon. Meijer, like Kroger, allowed you to use this coupon 5 times so I bought 5 packages of cheese. Salami was on sale for $3.99/lb so I bought 1/2 pound for my husband’s lunches.
I also picked up another free 12 pack of Nestea free, thanks to an Mperks free coupon. We don’t drink it so I left it in my car to donate, which is why it isn’t pictured.
At Meijer, I spent $18.58. I also bought an organizing drawer and some school supplies, but I’m not taking those out of our grocery budget.
This week, I spent $30.72 on groceries. That brings my total for August to $191.53 out of $240. Thankfully, I just cashed out $20 in Ibotta (it really is a great coupon app) so that gives me extra grocery money this month. I’m going to use every penny of it, too! 🙂
How did you do with grocery shopping this week? Any great deals – at Kroger or elsewhere?
