I’m currently challenging myself to stick with a $70 grocery budget for our family of five. This includes almost all of our breakfasts, lunches, snacks, and dinners + most household products (toiletries, laundry soap, etc.).

After two whole weeks of not stepping foot into a grocery store since we were in South Africa, it felt really wonderful to be back to shopping today. And Kroger didn’t disappoint!
I was mostly just stopping by to see what markdowns they had and to grab the deal on organic frozen veggies. But I scored big time when I went to the dairy section and saw they had Simple Truth Cage Free Brown Eggs for just $0.99!!!! I was thrilled to get them for $1.99 per dozen two weeks ago… so I could not believe this price when I saw it.
And if we didn’t already have 4 dozen eggs in our fridge and weren’t going out of town really soon, I would have bought 10 dozen. But I settled on 6 dozen since that felt like a good amount! 🙂
I gave two dozen away to a friend today and will be using the rest for scrambled eggs, fried eggs, hard boiled eggs, French Toast… and baking. And I also might make a quiche. We all love eggs, so I doubt we’ll have an issue using them up in the next few weeks!
I also picked up the Free Friday candy — which my kids were thrilled about. We basically never buy anything with food coloring in it, so it’s always a really, really big deal when I actually buy something that has it in it. But these were free and I knew my kids would absolutely go nuts about them (they did!) so I surprised them with a very unexpected treat.
I’m not sure what we’re going to use these for — maybe for our road trip to Arkansas at the end of the month? We’ll see!
Here’s what I ended up buying:
