This week was pretty expensive but we still managed to keep it as frugal as possible. We used a lot of stock pile goods last week before we headed out for Chicago, so this week we needed to load back up on the items we killed before the trip. Also, Walgreen’s had a decent sale on items that we are brand loyal [we don't do stinky pits around here], so I hit up that sale which most definately incresed our out of pocket expenses. I spent a total of $138.27 at Randall’s. Walgreen’s, CVS, Target and PetSmart.

This week has flown by super fast, we have been busy watering the grass so it doesn’t die in the Texas heat and I have been training for my upcoming 1/2 marathons in Chicago and San Antonio.

Last, but not least, I got anxiety over shopping this week, no joke. I printed out the B1G1 Whonu Cookies and stacked it with the $1.00/1 and my $1.00 Catalina from Kroger, ready to go… I didn’t go, I was too nervous that they would call the police for stacking coupons correctly. I fought with myself the whole way to do my Randall’s trip and then leaving to pass the exit to Kroger, I just don’t feel comfortable there anymore. Does anybody else have this anxiety I speak about? Do you think I should call to action a Kroger Anxiety group so we can help each other deal with the stress they put on their [once] loyal consumers?! Why Kroger, WHY?

Where is my hairbrush?

When you least expect it… Like when you are drying you hair!?

I just got my hair cut today and I need to embellish the look… it is kind of flat at the moment.

Ugh - of to Target I go to purchase a new hairbrush. I bet they aren’t on sale.

P.S. They weren’t…

I got to make my grocery and pharmacy rounds this morning [on a Wednesday!?], after seeing the Dr. for my sore throat.

Shopping on a Wednesday is strange for me because first, I have a grown up job to tend to and second, we have dinner with C on Wednesday nights during the school year. I take B to work on Wednesday mornings and head back home to get to work [this lucky duck gets to work en mi casa!]. But, the summer is upon us and we don’t have our Wednesday dinner tonight, but, we do get to pick up our home skillet on Friday!

This time last year I had the WORST case of Strep EVER. It was the first time I had ever had it, so it took me under. Today is my third day of hopping up on Vitamin C because my throat feels like it’s caving in… just like last year. Apparently, there is a virus going around that’s causing it - I think my pretty little niece brought it over on Sunday, isn’t she just so cute:

Muffin + Dakota

I stopped at CVS, Target, Walgreen’s, Randall’s and HEB and spent only $91 bucaroos.

June 2 Grocery Trip

I finally had a chance to make my grocery and pharmacy rounds today, there are quite a few deal to be had. I stopped at CVS, Target, PetSmart, Randall’s and Walgreens [in that order] and spent only $54 bucaroos. 

We had a blast this weekend at the beach, but we got a little toasty, I chaperoned C’s field trip to the Zoo on Tuesday and we went out again to the P-land for our last Wednesday OOh-Rah before summer starts. My baby girl is now a 7th grader, time flies, she is amazing. But, now is the time I need to check my stock to make sure I am well ready for a 7th grader, and friends, to mooch off all of the fun and delicious wares of the H-pantry.

It is with deep regret and profound sadness that I inform you of the passing of Kroger Double/Triple coupons in Houston and surrounding areas. Double/Triple Coupons were a cherished friend, and will be sorely missed.

The bottom line is that Kroger is trying to find a new business strategy with the introduction of e-coupons, gas and prescription rewards and other “valued customer” incentives… Yea, that’s what they say.

If you are distraught over this loss, head on over to the Kroger Couponers Facebook page and voice your opinion, find the address to mail a concerned/complaint letter or receive the phone number to call the corporate headquarters and say, “Hey! What’s up with that?! I thought you loved me?”

It looks like Randall’s will be the only grocery store [in my neck of the woods] to offer double/triple coupons; however, they already limit to only one double/triple per coupon item [ex. Three $0.35 coupons with the same bar code for Pillsbury Toaster Strudel will only triple to $1.05 once, the other two remain $0.35 face value].

It’s a sad day in Frugal Kingdom, but we will hold strong and be victorious! We don’t let the grocery store hold us down!

You can go here to read all of the details from Kroger.
