I was able to do a big stock up last shop day so this really helped in the grocery department. I scored big time at Kroger Grocery Store with Buy One Get One Free and then the one you bought was on sale. I stocked up on rice, pasta, and paper towels.
If you don't utilize Kroger's Freebie Friday's YOU NEED TO. Every Friday there is a Freebie. You can actually get it anytime but the Freebie is announced on Friday. They do have an expiration date.
Today's Freebie is a Sunny Delight Beverage!!! (Expires Feb. 14th, 2016)
I waited until I had 3 or 4 freebies and certain sales I wanted to catch. I got a container of yogurt, 2 Uncle Ben Wild Rice Boxes, and 6 pack of Nestle Grape Water for FREEEEEE!!! You do not have to make a purchase to get your freebies.. They also had a deal buy a pack of their Paper Towels ($1.89) and get a bottle of dish soap free. Also, buy 2 packs of rice get one free. I totally utilized these things to build my pantry.
They also had Navel Oranges that were 5 for $1. I got 10 oranges. They were beautiful and delicious. My kids love oranges.
Kroger had all their block cheese and shredded cheese on sale for $1.42 a package or block. I stocked up. We use cheese a lot.
I signed up my email for Redbox and got a free movie.
I had to drive a lot in the last few weeks because my husband went out of town traveling so a lot of things he does on his way home I had to do. So, my gas bill increased. But we are still saying NO to eating out and this saves us quite A LOT!
My goals this week are.....
1. Revamp our budget....My husband got a RAISE!!! WOOT! But we plan to take advantage of this by tackling debt.
2. Plan a sensible February "Blessing Our Pantry" Plan.
3. Plan a fun, thrifty, and frugal Valentine Dinner for the family as well as giving goodies to those needing a little lift in the LOVE Department.
4. Set February Finance Goals
What are ways you saved? What habits are you doing that are cutting the cost??? Share, please!!
