Grocery Shopping Day

Friday is generally Grocery Shopping Day around here because a) The Grocery Game * list comes out for my area on Tuesday and it takes me a couple of days to put together a plan and get my coupons in order and b) Comfort is in preschool Friday mornings so c) it's just Joy and I tooling around the store.  So, I head to my Kroger with lists in hand and get ready to tackle a major shopping trip. This time I was not only picking up items to stockpile but I'm going to try some Once a Month Cooking. I'll post more about this in a few days after I've been through the fun.

But the shopping itself took me awhile because I didn't organize my two lists together, but that's okay, no one else is really in the store on Friday mornings. I also got to take advantage of the fact that Kroger is running a Mega Deals this week - by purchasing 10 specially marked items throughout the store I got $5 off my bill. You better believe I made sure I had 10 in my cart at checkout. I also had my FREE Full Size Item Coupon From Suave and a total of $17.64 in manufacturers coupons. I had some bonus savings and a Shortcuts coupon and reusable bag buyback for a total of $35.21 in savings and a total purchase of $97.81. It's not my best turnout ever but considering that I haven't made a major trip to the grocery store in a month this was pretty fantastic. If I can go another 3 weeks without having to shop for more than milk that will be $32.60/ week for groceries. If I can get it stretch to 4 weeks it dips to $24.45/week and that, my friends, is even Cooler!!
