Final week’s $69 Kroger buying journey


April 20, 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 a 9-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.
