Crystal’s $85 Kroger Buying Journey (+ our menu plan)

If you happen to’re new right here, I apply the Purchase Forward Precept — which implies that what we purchase every week is commonly for future weeks. We refill on the perfect offers and markdowns every week and that implies that we then have quite a lot of gadgets from earlier buying journeys to make use of to plan a menu from.

With the rise in grocery costs, I’ve determined to boost our grocery price range to $100 every week as a result of I’ve not been having sufficient wiggle room to refill like I’d wish to. This quantity will nonetheless problem me to be artistic whereas additionally giving me sufficient respiratory room to refill and proceed to apply the Purchase Forward Precept.

Along with practising the Purchase Forward Precept, I Reverse Meal Plan. Because of this I plan based mostly upon what we’ve got available plus what good gross sales/markdowns I discovered on the shops. (Learn extra about Reverse Meal-Planning right here.)

{Comply with me on Instagram tales for real-time movies on what I’m shopping for when you don’t wish to have to attend for me to get the publish written up for the weblog!}

Right here’s what I purchased for $85 this week at Kroger…

I used to be enthusiastic about this sale on raspberries and blackberries.

Kellogg’s cereal was $1.79 + there’s a $1/2 digital coupon on the Kellogg’s rewards web site! Additionally, you may get a free e book with free delivery for each Kellogg’s product you purchase (as much as 10 free books!)

Gala apples had been on sale for $2.99 for a 3/lb bag. Eggs had been $2.79/dozen — which, sadly, I now contemplate an excellent deal! Kroger sausage (hyperlinks and patties) are $1.99 with the digital coupon (you’ll be able to stand up to five at this worth).

The Kraft String Cheese is $2.79/bundle with the digital coupon (you’ll be able to stand up to five packages).

Apple juice is $1.29/bottle with the digital coupon (you’ll be able to stand up to five at that worth).

We’ll both use the additional $15 left within the price range on an excellent deal that comes up or roll it to subsequent week.
