This week was supposed to be focused on filling my freezer! I succeeded with the fruit (Hurray for 99 cent summer fruit!), but Meijer was out of frozen vegetables so I had to save some money for next week. That wasn’t too hard apparently, because I currently have… $25.00 left in this week’s budget, holy cow. Part of that too is because we’re heading to Cedar Point (again) this weekend, so I didn’t need as many meals!
On another note, if your Kroger has a dairy clearance section, be sure to check it out! I scored a bunch of yogurt that was between 75-90% off regular price, that still had at least a few days until the expiration date. Allison confiscated one the day I bought them, but I still had enough for evening snacks for the next few days. I live for these clearance sections; it’s like a rush whenever I find anything good! Here’s everything I bought this week:
