Kroger Shopping Trip - 11/22

This shopping trip was done Sunday, but most of last week's items are on sale again this week. So maybe you can score a few of these deals too. You can view my full list of Kroger deals for this week HERE.

Spent: $66.87 plus tax
Saved: $63.07 (48%)

The Pepsi products definitely kept me below the 50% savings mark this week, but the price was right for stocking up! The other budget-buster was the aluminum foil. I didn't even have a coupon for it, but we needed it.

One of my favorite finds this week was the McCormick Cinnamon & Sugar grinder. They're on sale for $1, and there was a $1 off coupon in the 11/1 RedPlum insert. This is going to be much neater than trying to mix it in a bowl!

While the Kroger brand veggies were on sale for $.88 each, I opted for the Freshlike broccoli. They were on sale for $2.36, and I had some $.50 off coupons (which doubled to $1 off) from the 10/18 SmartSource insert. That made these HUGE bags $1.36, a much better value than the Kroger brand.

We splurged a little on the dinosaur-shaped chicken nuggets and the ice cream. But the ice cream was a sweet deal! Turkey Hill and Private Selection brands are both on sale for $2.50 each. There's a Turkey Hill $1 off coupon in the 11/8 RedPlum, and you can load a $1.00 off Private Selection eCoupon on your Kroger card at Check your Kroger home mailers for a Private Selection ice cream coupon too!

The Progresso soups were on sale for $1.65 each, and I had 4 of those $1.10 off printable coupons that are no longer available. That made them $.55 each. Plus I didn't realize that I had $.50 off Cellfire and $.50 off Shortcuts Progresso coupons on my card. I ended up paying $.30 each for them. These are great for grabbing a quick lunch on the way out the door.

All in all, this was a pretty good shopping week at Kroger. I may stop back later this week if I'm in the area. I have some of the $.50 off printable Dole coupons (HERE), and I'll be able to get free canned pineapple with them.
