Healthy Groceries on a Budget #6
Welcome back to my weekly post about groceries on a budget! This week, I was really pleased with the sales I found at Kroger, partly due to the valued customer coupons I received.
If you shop at Kroger and you have NOT put your address into your shoppers card profile, do it now! Every 4-6 months they send out a little flyer with 10-12 GREAT coupons in it. This time I got free coupons for a 6-8 ct. package of Kroger paper towels, and a 12 oz Kroger frozen veggie. Completely FREE. Not buy one get one, just free. I consider paper towels a luxury item and would just never buy them, but if they’re going to give me a pack? Sure, why not!? Conveniently, the last free coupon I got was also for paper towels, and we’ve only just finished up that package, so it really worked out perfectly.
I actually stacked quite a few of those coupons against sales this week, and ended up with some great deals on chicken and single serve yogurts. I usually just buy a quart of plain Greek yogurt about once a month and make a batch of yogurt each week, using just a little of the greek yogurt as starter for the yogurt culture. This week, though, the 5 oz. cups of Kroger yogurt were on sale 10/$4, and there was a $1.00 off coupon in the app, so I basically got 50 oz. of yogurt for $3.00. It’s still a little more expensive than just making it myself, but the kids will enjoy it, and it’s easy.
I spent $39.60 at Kroger this week, and $58.40 at Aldi, for a total of $98.00
This is what I bought at Kroger
And here is what I bought at Aldi
Same old breakfasts and lunches. Eggs, oatmeal, toast, PB&J, veggies and cheese, and leftovers.
For dinner I’m making: One Pan Pesto Chicken and Veggies ~ Chicken Bacon Ranch Layer Salad ~ Pizza ~ Siracha Lime Chicken Salad ~ Chicken Veggie Soup ~ Tacos
On Sunday night we’ll just have leftovers or whatever we can throw together in a hurry.

I”m enjoying your grocery budget series! I’m so proud of you. Do you know about Kroger’s free Friday? They’ve been doing it for a year. I have gotten many “health” bars, chocolate, candy, 12 pack of real sugar soda (which I don’t drink, but My Precious does), all kinds of Power Drinks, 46 oz bottle Ocean Spray PACT Fruit Infusion drink and the list goes on. Things I would never buy and I don’t repurchase them, but hey they are “Free” Every Friday and only on Friday you download the coupon to your card. You have 2 weeks to use it. If they are out, they will substitute. Recently they haven’t been out, but when they first started they were a lot. So today is Friday, go to their website. Your lists didn’t show up!
Wow, no! I hadn’t heard of Free Friday! Thanks for the tip! And thanks for pointing out the lack of lists. Apparently my last draft update and the publishing didn’t overlap… Gotta love it! 🙂
