We’re getting close to finishing the dinners in our freezer! I estimate we have another week and a half of what I made last month, which is awesome. I’m gearing up toward another smaller cooking session this weekend, so I used a lot of our money this week to purchase the things needed for that (Like the 5 packages of tortilla shells). My goal for now is to keep filling my freezer and pantry so our grocery bill can be lower for the next few weeks. Let’s see what I got this week!

I've said this before and I'll say it again -- I am amazed that you don't need/shop Kroger for the bulk of your needs. In my mind, that's just the best option but clearly, you've done so well without shopping there.

I'm going to read your Weekly Shopping Menu posts and really start putting some of the sales you share to use as I go shopping on Tuesdays and/or Thursdays while Connor is at school.
