This Week’s $80 Kroger Shopping Trip

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 to $100 a week because I’ve not been having enough wiggle room to stock up like I’d want to. This amount will still challenge me to be creative while also giving me enough breathing room to stock up and continue to practice the Buy Ahead Principle.

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 also happy to get five pounds of marked down ground beef to stick in the freezer! And the Annie’s Mac & Cheese is just $0.99 with the weekly digital coupon (limit 5).

I got lots of great markdowns — including pasta for $0.49/box!

The oatmeal was marked down to $0.79 each + chocolate bars marked down to $0.49 each! The Tollhouse chocolate chips are $1.99 per bag with the weekly digital coupon (after I got home, I realized that…
