Laurie’s Kroger Trip: Stocked Up On Buy One Get One Free Pork Chops & More

20141007-110738-40058619.jpg

I was super excited about what I scored last night at Kroger, until Shannon let me know that the Kellogg’s deal starting tomorrow at Kroger is a much better deal! We were almost out of cereal though, so at least I saved a bit (and have one more coupon to use on the upcoming ad.) Our store also had pork chops and pork roasts on sale Buy One Get One Free, so I had to stock up! Here’s what I bought:

Bought 2 Flipz Pretzels $1.25

Bought 3 Frosted Flakes $2.99

Bought 1 Cocoa Krispies $2.49

Bought 1 gallon milk $3.09

Bought 2 packs Boneless Pork Chops $5-$6, on sale Buy One Get One Free

Bought 2 packs Boneless Pork Roast $12-$13 each, on sale Buy One Get One Free

  • Used (2) $1/1 Flipz coupons (recent printable, no longer available)
  • Used $1/3 Kellogg’s coupon
  • Used Buy 4 Kellogg’s cereals get free gallon milk coupon from the 9/14 Red Plum insert (regional coupon)
  • Paid $27.99, submitted for $1 Ibotta milk rebate (could also submit for $1 Snap rebate, but I’ve already used that one)

I’m not sure if the pork is on sale Buy One Get One Free in all Kroger regions, but I was thrilled to stock up. I’m planning to switch out our menu plan for the weekend to make these Grilled Pork Chops (they’re so good!), and  you can’t beat a great sale to frugally feed your family. After picking up fresh produce, chicken and beef yesterday at Fresh Thyme, our pantry and fridge are well-stocked.

 

Have you saved big while shopping this week? I’d love to hear about it! Be sure to also check out all the Kroger deals this week HERE before you shop.

PPP Five Year Blogiversary Giveaway Coming Tomorrow

Screen Shot 2014-10-06 at 2.43.35 PM

First giveaway is live – enter to win HERE!

Goodness gracious, I can hardly believe this but I’ve been typing from this side of the screen and on over to you for exactly five years this month.  WOW!

 

What I completely started on a whim turned into something I never would have imagined, and I can hardly believe I’m still hanging out here with you each day. In case you haven’t figured this out (~ahem~), I’m just a mom. I don’t have any degrees in marketing, advertising, or journalism . . . in fact, I’m in sheer amazement each day that so many folks take time to read what’s here on PPP.  (It’s all I can do just to keep this technologically-challenged brain on top of things most days!)

 

Blogging has changed my life so much these last five years that I can hardly imagine life without it.  It’s given this kind-of-shy-goofy-not-very-confident mom a little presence on the internet, taught me so much about what I’m really passionate about, instilled in me the importance of some serious determination, and been just a wonderful gift (despite the ridiculous number of hours it’s taken to keep it together. Yikes!)

 

I looked back to my very first post back in October of 2009 on “publixpennypincher.blogspot.com” (when I made myself “pretend post” for a few weeks to see if I even enjoyed sharing deals at all.) Here’s what it looked like . . . ;)

 

Screen Shot 2014-10-06 at 2.49.03 PM

(seriously folks, we’ve come a long way ~ it took me a whopping six months just to learn how to hyperlink!)

 

I feel so incredibly blessed to have this virtual home here with you, and am simply overwhelmed that you take time to read what’s here each day. I love how this has completely changed our family’s ability to give as well as beefed up our children’s college funds, and having you all to chat with each day has helped me through some crazy difficult times.

 

(I know that sounds nuts, but you all are just the nicest cheering section!)

Screen Shot 2014-10-06 at 3.34.30 PM

To top that all off, last week we reached ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY THOUSAND FACEBOOK FANS (WOW!) So, of course we need a little giveaway to celebrate, don’t you think? ;)

Screen Shot 2014-10-06 at 3.37.57 PM

 

Tomorrow, watch for some seriously fun giveaways (hint: think Kitchenaid & Amazon ~ both!) I’ll be starting out early in the day and can’t wait to share, so be watching.

 

Thank you so much for sharing this little spot with me each day – I’m so very thankful for you!

 

And on a very important side note, I do NOT do manage all of this by myself most days. A big thanks to my friends Cheryl, Misty, Susan and Staci who help out with various tasks around here when I need them, and a HUGE thanks to Shannon (who y’all know is a rockstar.) ;)

Fresh Thyme Market: I Loved It!

 

20141006-134541-49541216.jpg

 

Thanks to a PPP reader’s recommendation over on Facebook (thanks Amanda!), I visited the new Fresh Market here in Columbus this morning, and goodness I’m so glad I did! It was one of those stores where you walk in and everything smells just delicious – like you need to buy everything in it because it’s just an oh-so-happy shopping experience. ;)

20141006-134523-49523544.jpg

I went to score some incredible deals on grapes and boneless, skinless, chicken breast, and it was fun seeing what else they had in store. Like most stores, I really had to stay on track to only pick up their best bargains this week, but I’m pretty excited to have a great way to save on fresh food nearby. Here’s what I bought:

  • 4.42 pounds of grapes $.69/lb – $3.07
  • 3 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast $1.99/lb – $5.97
  • 1.61 lbs beef stew meat $5.99/lb – $9.04 (this was a little pricey, but we need it for dinner later this week and I decided it was worth spending a little bit more)
  • 2.21 lbs bananas $.55/lb – $1.22
  • 3 lb Granny Smith apples $3.99
  • Total = $23.29

Here are a few prices that I thought were very reasonable . . . 
20141006-134527-49527464.jpg

 Apples $2.99/3 lb bag

20141006-134524-49524519.jpg

Baby Carrots $.97/lb.

20141006-134525-49525452.jpg

Bananas $.55/lb.

20141006-134526-49526497.jpg

Grapes $.69/lb. (such a good price – compare to $1.74/lb. at Costco!)

20141006-134537-49537365.jpg

Bagged Salad & Cole Slaw $.97

20141006-134539-49539204.jpg

Boneless Chuck Roast $4.99/lb.

20141006-134538-49538290.jpg

Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast $1.99/lb. (compare to $2.99/lb. at Costco)

 

Do you have a Fresh Thyme Market in your area? It looks to me like they’re fairly new in many towns so I’m curious if the prices will continue to say so low on their sale items. (I sure hope they do!) The service was fantastic (it was pouring down rain and one of their workers was determined to carry my groceries while I carried his umbrella), and I was just so pleased with my trip.

 

Screen Shot 2014-10-06 at 1.08.07 PM

Hopefully they’ll be opening more of these in different cities (it looks like they are on their website) – and if you’re near one I definitely recommend swinging by! (But be sure to take your stock-up price list with you so you stick with buying only the best deals.) ;)
