Super Savings Saturday: Kroger and Aldi

The girls and I just did a simple shopping trip to Kroger (Dillon's) and Aldi this week:


Altogether, we spent a total of right at $40 for all the above groceries–right on our budget target. Yay! You can read more about this shopping trip here.

    Does your $40.00 budget also include diapers and wipes?

    Money Saving Mom here: Yes, except that I’m still learning how to wing buying diapers without a CVS. So far, it’s been my biggest challenge since moving as far as the grocery budget goes. I think it’s going to be possible, I’m just going to have to get very creative! 🙂

  • I love your blog! You inspired me to create my own blog to share my bargains with friends and family. This is the first time I have posted my blog at I am very excited to share my deals !

    Hey Crystal, I was just wondering how you manage to buy meat at better prices. I am new to the ‘coupon game’ and never see any deals on meat. I have notice at times that meat will be discounted due to a near experation date. Is this how you usually buy your meat? And if so, Is there a typical time/day that meat is discouted?? Thanks for all you do. I appreaciate it!!

  • Christy says:

    Thanks so much for your wonderful blog, and giving us the chance to share our deals.

  • Jill says:

    Love you blog. I just started teaching through Grocery Smarts how to cut your grocery bill in half. It is so fun!

  • Carrie says:

    This week is all about the ConAgra Catalina for me. Yay free food!

  • Wolf says:

    my first time trying!

    i really wish the nail saver sponges were still on sale here! (well, they might have been…but i searched high and low to find them and they conveniently were out!)

    here’s to crossing my fingers they put them on sale for $1.00 again before the coupon expires!

  • Deborah says:

    Thanks, Crystal, for blogging like you do! I admire your efficiency — especially with two little ones and one on the way. Your blog is so helpful!

    I just posted details on my savings at Walgreens this week and am loving the couponing game very much! I’ll miss it when we get to the mission field of Uruguay, but I’m thankful for how it’s helping us get there! :o)

  • I love your website! You have inspired me to create a budget and stick to it.

  • Mary says:

    WOW…$40.00, you did awesome! I just posted the deals I got this evening at Kroger’s. They didn’t have everything I wanted to get (no pepperoni, no lint rollers, no sponges 🙁 but for the most part it was a pretty decent trip, I even picked up a free headache lol. That store was PACKED!! It was elbow to elbow. Good thing I got the Tylenol lol.

  • Candace says:

    Thanks Crystal – especially for the Kraft deal!
    I can’t get my link to work – UGH! But I did post and put pictures at

    I saved $254 and spent $54 this week ($4 over budget)

    It was a great day – until I dropped my coupon box…….

  • Tricia says:

    I love your blog, but I truly can not figure out how you feed your family with just spending 40.00 a week! I am amazed. I started couponing earlier this spring and save an average of 35% off my grocery bill each week, but still it is much more than 40.00. This is for a family of 4 without having to buy beef as we purchase a 1/4 cow every fall. I do live in a smaller area with only one grocery store chain, so that does limit some of my options and after trying “off” brands have learned that while the price maybe great the product is not always so. Alas I will keep trying, especially in these trying times. Thanks for your blog you are an inspiration!

    Does anyone know how much butter is at Aldi?
