The Proof: Kroger, Saved $76.94 Spent…

krogerlogoI spent more on groceries today than I can remember ever spending- $164.32. I am still not sure how I did it.

There are a few things to consider- I did shop for a little over a week, we did need diapers, dishwasher detergent, laundry detergent and dog food-which are all expensive items. I also bought food to entertain visiting family for the weekend and holiday desserts for a party tonight. I started my adventures into organic produce, buying organic apples and carrots.(The unnecessarily large quantities of hummus, guacamole, cheese and Sun Chips are more likely due to the fact a hungry pregnant woman was doing the shopping!)

Definitely not my best saving efforts but I did find a few great deals:

  1. Kroger's deals stunk this week I thought! So I totally understand why you spent that much! Don't be to hard on yourself.

  2. Ha, Thanks! I am going to have to work on hosting for less though. Not sure how to do that yet.
