~Let’s go Krogering!~

Yesterday I told you I was extremely excited about my Kroger trip this week, and I am so proud to say it worked perfectly! I have to think my husband for giving me the go ahead on this trip. At the start of the year we decided to buckle down and stick to a budget each week, $80 a week and that’s for anything we need that week including diapers . *We do give ourselves treats every once in awhile and certain things are in the treat category.*  As I grow our stockpile that weekly figure should go down hopefully…Anyway I was scared to even try the Kroger Mega event this week, afraid I would go over budget. So I was just going to get the few things we needed this week and forget trying to get any deals. My husband said go for it so off me and Lily went. I gotta say we rocked it!!  AND stayed under budget Smile
