Cake Mix Bars, Turmeric Milk, & This Week’s $70 Menu Plan

This $70 weekly grocery budget is impressive for a family of 5!

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.).

Kroger had some more weekend deals that were worth picking up this past Saturday. (Psst! If you loaded the Ketchup or Mayo coupons onto your card, Kroger extended the date on those through June 30, 2018!)

Saturday Kroger Shopping Trip — $24.36

  • 1 bag of limes — marked down to $0.99
  • 2 cantaloupe — marked down to $0.99 each
  • 1 bag of peppers — marked down to $0.99

  • 2 Fage yogurts — marked down to $0.59 (got $0.75 back per cup from Ibotta making them essentially “free + overage” after rebate)
  • 2 bottles of Heinz Ketchup — $0.99 each with the Weekend Digital Coupon Deals
  • 1 jar Mayo — $0.99 with the Weekend Digital Coupon Deal
  • 3 boxes of Aunt Jemima pancake mix — marked down to $0.99 per box (these were on the Scratch & Dent table at Kroger) — I bought these so we can have our friends over for more Breakfast for Dinner nights after going to pool! We did this last week and it was such a hit & I’m hoping it will work out again this week, too!
  • Total with tax: 24.36


So many of you asked for the “Unhealthy Cake Mix Bar Recipe” that I mentioned Kathrynne was going to be making. These were so yummy — and turned out beautifully!

Get the recipe here.

In healthier news, I have been making a cup of Turmeric Milk (or tea or whatever you want to call it) every day. This stuff is so good — and so good for you!

I hit the jackpot of great markdowns today at Kroger! Here’s what I got:

I’ve got LOTS of great deals to report to you today! Buckle your seat belt, this might be a l-o-n-g post!

Saturday Kroger Shopping Trip — $15.66

Kroger had a Saturday Only Sale where you could get Smithfield Bacon for just $2.99 per package with the digital coupon. There was a limit of 5 packages and you better believe we took advantage of the deal and got 5 packages… because, BACON! 🙂

Tuesday Big Lots Shopping Trip — $3.47

After scoring the great deal on bread at Big Lots, a few of you told me that I needed to check for the Clearance Cart at Big Lots… and you said that you’ve found some amazing deals in it! Well, I checked when I went today and I found it — and these crackers were in it for just $0.25 per package!

I also grabbed some Krusteaz pancake mix for $2.25 since we kind of last-minute invited friends to go to the pool with us tonight and then come back to our house for Breakfast for Dinner and Games.

I’m not sure if that’s a good price on pancake mix (I usually make mine, but it was less expensive and easier for me today to just buy it), but I thought it was a pretty decent deal and I’ve heard that that pancake mix is really good.

Big Lots tip: Be sure to sign up for a BuzzRewards card. You are supposed to get a $5 off $15 coupon for every three shopping trips. I’m excited to see if this actually works — because that could be a great way to stretch our budget a little bit more!

Tuesday Aldi Shopping Trip — $17.80

  • 5 packages of strawberries — $1.29 each (we’re using 4 cartons of these for our Breakfast for Dinner with friends tonight)
  • Cantaloupe — $1.49
  • Pancake Mix — $1.49 (I grabbed a second box of pancake mix just to be sure we have plenty for Breakfast for Dinner tonight!)
  • Pure Maple Syrup — $5.99
  • 5 ears of Sweet Corn — $0.25 each

Total with tax: $17.80

Today is the last day of the Kroger Buy 5, Get $5 Off Sale, so I wanted to stop by and get a few more items before the sale ended. Here’s what I got:

Tuesday Kroger Shopping Trip — $20.84

  • 2 bags of apples — $0.99 each
  • 2 bags of avocados — $0.99 each
  • Goldfish crackers — $0.99 when you buy 5 participating items
  • 1 gallon Whole Milk — $2.69
  • Suave Kids Bodywash — $0.99 when you buy 5 participating items, used $0.75/1 Kroger Digital coupon = $0.24 after coupon
  • Suave Bodywash — $0.99 when you buy 5 participating items
  • Cascadian Farms Cereal — $2.49 each when you buy 5 participating items, used 2 $1/1 Cascadian Farms cereal coupons = $1.49 each after coupons
  • 5 boxes of Nature Valley Bars — $1.79 each when you buy 5 participating items, used $0.50/1 Kroger Digital coupon, used 2 $0.50/2 Nature Valley coupons + got a $3 catalina for buy 5 boxes = that’s like paying $0.89 per box after the coupons, sale, and Catalina (which I’ll use on my shopping trip on Thursday or Friday to help lower that grocery bill!)

Total with tax: $20.74 + I got a $3 catalina to use on my next shopping trip!

It’s been awhile since I’ve done a Catalina Deal, but when I saw this Nature Valley deal, I knew I had to do it. These will make for great snacks to take with us to the pool! Remember, the Buy 5, Get $5 Off sale ends tonight. So if you want to get in on this deal, hurry out to your store before midnight!

(Also, the best deal is to buy the crunchy bars — there are 12 per box. But we decided to try a few different kinds, just for fun!)

I took Silas to the store with me on Tuesday to see what deals we could find at Kroger. I did all my shopping during the school year when they were at school, so it’s been awhile since he and I have gone to the store together.

Silas was SO impressed with the deals I was able to find and it reminded me that I should take my kids with me at least occasionally — because I want them to learn how to be strategic shoppers at the grocery store, too!

We have a weird week this week when it comes to meals. Kaitlynn and Jesse were out of town the beginning of the week, we have multiple things going on in the evenings, and we were invited over to two different family’s houses for dinner!

The only thing we’re hosting this week is my Discipleship Small Group — and I’m just serving snacks for that (I think we’re doing cheese & crackers, fruit, Banana Bread, and sparkling water).

So our menu is super, crazy simple!
