I’m currently challenging myself to stick with a $70 grocery budget for our family of five. This includes almost all of our breakfasts, lunches, snacks, and dinners + most household products (toiletries, laundry soap, etc.).

I wasn’t planning to do the Friday-Saturday deals at Kroger because they didn’t seem like they were really all that stellar. However, then I saw this hot tip on KrogerKrazy.com about a catalina that was printing when you bought 3 boxes of Family Size Nabisco Ritz Crackers.
So I popped into Kroger today to see if it would work — and it DID! This deal is only good through tonight, but I wanted to share it in case you have a chance to run to Kroger before the day is over with!
Here’s how to get this deal:
- Buy 3 boxes of Nabisco Ritz Crackers at $1.99 each (be sure to download the coupon to your card from the Kroger app or Kroger site)
- Spend $5.97 + tax out of pocket
- Get a $3 catalina back — good for $3 off your next shopping trip!
- That’s like paying $0.99 + tax per family-sized box of Ritz crackers!
I also picked up a few other deals at Kroger…

What I’ve Spent So Far This Week
My grocery week runs from Saturday to Friday. However, I had $11.85 leftover from this past week, so I’m subtracting it from this week’s total.

Total Left to Spend: $68.91
Cashback Earned This Week: 25 points from Fetch Rewards for scanning a receipt
A Few Recipes We Love Using Ritz Crackers:
- It’s not a healthful recipe at all, but this Ritzy Chicken casserole is one our family has loved for years. I’m guessing it’s going to be on our menu a few times in the next few weeks!
- Also, these would be great to use in one of our family’s favorite recipes to make for Christmas: Ritz Cracker Chocolate Peanut Butter cookies (we just melt chocolate chips or white chocolate chips to dip them in instead of blending the different chocolates that the recipe calls for).
