This Week’s $74 Kroger Shopping Trip (+ our menu plan)


I spent $62 on groceries at Kroger last weekso I had $8 extra to spend on groceries this week.

If you’re new here, I practice the Buy Ahead Principle — which means that what we buy each week is often for future weeks. We stock up on the best deals and markdowns each week and that means that we then have a variety of items from previous shopping trips to use to plan a menu from.

With the increase in grocery prices, I’ve decided to raise our grocery budget because I’ve not been having enough wiggle room to stock up like I’d want to. So starting next week, I’ll be raising it to $100/ week.

In addition to practicing the Buy Ahead PrincipleI Reverse Meal Plan. This means that I plan based upon what we have on hand plus what good sales/markdowns I found at the stores. (Read more about Reverse Meal-Planning here.)

I was excited about the $0.99 cantaloupe deal + the $0.99 Mios. I thought the kids might like the Mios, so I bought three different kinds. Unfortunately, they were not fans! At least they were just $0.99 each!

Kierstyn has been going with me grocery shopping recently. She’s such a big helper and she loves our one-on-one grocery dates together!

My total for all the groceries was about $74!

Cheese was on sale for just $1.49 for the slices, blocks, and shredded cheese with the Kroger digital coupon. (I buy the bags of shredded cheese and stick them in the freezer.)

Each of these bags of produce was marked down to $0.99 each.

I got the 16-bean soup mix for just $1.29. I’m thinking to add one of the packages of sausage to it for soup this week.

I got some good meat markdowns this week, too! …
