I had to go grocery shopping today. I went to my favorite little neighborhood Kroger, really early because the maintenance guys were coming in to clean out the ducts in my townhouse. So I was there and back before 8 am! For the first time in a long time, I bought only good for you food…lots of fruits and veggies, rye bread, fish, and my guilty indulgence, Laughing Cow cheese.
I also managed to come away with a few freebies today..
The Crest was on sale for $1 a tube…I had coupons for either 50 cents (which double to $1) or $1 off per tube. So all of the toothpaste was totally free..I’ll keep two and donate two. The tuna was also on sale for $1 a package…I’ve been printing coupons from Starkist’s facebook page on Fridays, 50 cents off/package which Kroger again doubled, making the tuna free. I’ll print a couple more tomorrow so I can get a couple more before the sale ends. The Yoplait Greek yogurt was a Catalina that printed out the last time I bought Yoplait original yogurt…one free carton. The candle was a coupon that I received in the mail from Glade for one free item from the new spring collection. I thought the candle smelled nice and I burn a lot of candles, so a free one is extra nice.
I ended up saving 47% on my total purchase which is pretty good considering I bought so much fresh produce (oh, the Dole salad mixes had peelies on some of them for $1 off of two…I like it when I can find produce coupons). I’m slowly making my way back to eating healthy and exercising daily…one day at a time, one step at a time!
