My $61.74 Kroger Procuring Journey


March 29, 2021 | Crystal Paine


I’m currently challenging myself to stick with a $70 budget for our family of six (two adults, two teens, a pre-teen, and a baby. We are also fostering an 8-month-old, but he only has formula through his g-tube right now and that is all covered by state insurance.) This includes almost all of our breakfasts, snacks, and dinners + most household products (toiletries, feminine products, etc.). Jesse and I usually eat lunch at home. The kids have lunch at school.

I went to Kroger on Saturday to pick up some of the weekly deals + see what markdowns they had. Here were the deals I found…

I was excited about this deal on frozen fruit!

There’s a great deal on BIC razors — some of them are on sale for $3.49-$3.99 and there’s a $3 off digital coupon — making these just $0.49-$0.99 each!

I was excited to find some bread marked down to be able to stick in the freezer for having toast with my daily salads!
