Click here for an explanation on how we’re eating for $30 a week!
What a great shopping week! Pretty much all of my essentials were bought at Aldi this week; I didn’t really need anything at Kroger, but I found some amazing deals I couldn’t pass up and used part of my gift card on them. I just want to give a shout-out to Kroger Krazy for a minute; have you signed up for her text alerts? Whenever there’s a new great deal or coupons, you get a text so you’re the first to know! That’s how I found out about the free doughnut and free Lays Stax. She’s not paying me to say this; I really do just appreciate all the hard work she does so that we can get awesome free stuff! With that being said, let’s take a look at everything I got this week.
