My Kroger Trip - 8/7

Spent: $43.75
Saved: $65.26 (59%)
Since I was off today, I figured I'd do next week's grocery shopping this afternoon. So off to Kroger we went! I spent $43.75 for everything pictured above! Yay! Added to the $8.00 and $13.00 I spent earlier this week, that brings my Kroger total for this week to under $65.00. Not bad, especially considering the fact that there were 10 pints of blueberries and 10 boxes of cereal included in that.
