So, I rarely do actual grocery shopping at Kroger. Most of the items there are more expensive than Aldi or Meijer. However, I saw there were a ton of Ibotta rebates I could get there this weekend; so I decided not to even step into Meijer!
I’ve found myself obsessed with the RXBars that you see below. They can be pretty expensive ($1.99 for a single bar at regular price!), so I’ll only buy them if they’re on a good sale and I have coupons. This time, Kroger had them for $1.50, and were a super good deal after my coupons and Ibotta rebates. I bought all different flavors (You can even see all the ingredients on the front of each bar), but I’ve only tried Chocolate Sea Salt so far. It’s amazing.
Besides that, I was able to stock up on some non-food items at Sam’s Club as well! Here’s what I bought and what we’re making this week:
Orange juice: $.99
Daisy cottage cheese: $2.29
- Redeemed for $.50 Ibotta rebate
5 RXBars: $1.50 each
- Used a $1.00/3 coupon and $1.00/2 coupon
- Redeemed for 5 $.45 Ibotta rebates ($2.25 total)
Jello mix: $1.19
Torani chocolate syrup: $4.99. I’ve been using this (and Ghirardelli) to make iced coffee and it’s delicious!
Wholly Guacamole mini cups: $4.49. I found out later that day that Aldi has the same stuff for $2.99, oops.
Barbara’s Puffins cereal: $2.50
- Redeemed for a $2.00 Ibotta rebate
Reach floss: $1.00
