I think I'm going to send a personal thank you card to Kroger's manager. I've found the Manager's special marked down prices in my town's Kroger to be an awesome way to cut down on our grocery bill.
Needing to purchase some staples for the remainder of the month I decided to drop by this afternoon and found everything I needed and then some. My favorite of these being Pamper's which I was able to get for $3.00 because they were 1/2 off and I had a coupon!
I spent a total of $36.60 and saved just over $60. To stay on budget I have $68.34 left for the last week of February. Time to buckle down and get it done.
2 pounds of pork chops (Manager's special $5.00)
6 pounds of chicken breast ($1.67/lb)
Jumbo pampers ($3.00)
3 loaves organic bread ($.99 each)
4 dozen organic eggs ($1.25 each)
4 packages of English muffins ($3.00 on sale w/ coupon)
2 liter of diet soda (free with coupon)
3 Huggies travel wipes ($.99 each)
5 gallons of milk ($.99 each)
Still on the menu for this month:
Azuki bean tacos
Lentil Sausage Soup/ bread
Turkey pot pie and biscuits
turkey tetrazinni/ broccoli
chili/ corn bread
baked potato bar/ dinner salad
Italian chicken and rice/brocolli
Egg rolls and stir fry veggies
This frugal thing is getting easier and I'm beginning to realize all the more how blessed we truly are. I was reading over at Cindy's today about compassion international and how $34 a month can change a family's life. Could it be that God is allowing us to save all this money a month in order to pass it on? We're praying about it.
