Kroger Before the Storm

Would you believe that they're calling for MORE snow tonight and tomorrow? SHEESH! So I bumped up my Kroger trip to tonight... just in case. It was a frugal move on my part. We were already going to be near Kroger, so I considered it a trip saved! (Can I figure the $3 in gas saved into my savings???)

Here's what we got. (Click the photo to enlarge.)

I stopped by Kroger's yesterday, and I was surprised to see cheese is on sale for $1! Yay! It is a 4 day sale, and I believe it goes through Sunday!

Yay!!!! I missed that on the flyer they had posted in the store. Now if I can just convince my husband that digging out our truck is worth $1 cheese!
