I share my grocery hauls with my sister consistently. I figured it was about time I put them on the web so any persons who were actually interested could view and appreciate them.
I am particularly proud of this cheap grocery haul because everything I purchased was paid for by me, using survey money.
I use a few different survey sites, but the one that facilitated this particular cheap grocery haul was IPOLL. They have a few different redemption options, but I opted for Paypal and it was instant. $25.16, most of which was made in a month.
This was just a mini “Fill in” kind of trip. I’ll do my big hauls this weekend after pay day.
Let me just warn y’all now, I love managers specials. Love them. I purchase at least one just about every time I go to the store. I’m a big bread and bakery gal, so I’m not concerned if the best by date is in 2 days (or even tomorrow in some cases), it’ll be gone before bedtime.
The main things I went in for were milk, eggs, bread, and bananas. I did all of those things, except for the milk. I had a $5 Walmart gift card from another survey site so I had the hubs run over there for the milk instead.
After I got my essentials, I had some wiggle room. Like I said, I had just gotten $25 and was working with about $17.60 of it for some fill in the gaps groceries.
Keep in mind I had some meal things at home already, and had just made a big pot of chili, so we were good in that area, and we only needed about 2 days worth of some extra snacks (I had a few things left from my last mini-haul).
I’ve got 4 kids, aged 1-6, and a decent sized husband. My husband works from home full-time, I work from home part-time and am a full-time homemaker, and only 1 of my kids is in school full-time, so almost all of our meals are eaten at home.
This is a summary of what $17.07 was able to get me at Gerbes:
Store: Gerbes (it’s called “Kroger” or “Dillon’s” in other states)
Amount Spent: $17.07
Items purchased: 14
- Dillons wheat bread (not the best stuff, I usually get Natures Own but it was a fill in day!)
- Simple Truth Organic Snack Popcorn bag of 6
- Kroger Frozen Pancakes 12 count
- Psst brand fries (fill in day!)
- 7 Bananas
- 1 dozen kroger cage free large white eggs
- 4 kroger yogurts
- Box of 16 bakery M&M cookies
- 3 party pizzas
1 dozen eggs, cage free, white = $1.29
x4 Kroger Yogurts = $.19 X 4 = $.76
Simple truth organic ready to eat popcorn x6 individual bags = $1.79
Box of 16 M&M bakery cookies = $1.49
Overall, it was a fairly good haul considering I could only spend $17.60!
