Free groceries!

August 20th, 2012 at 12:45 pm

A while back I got wild and crazy and signed up for a Kroger credit card. The gas discount was too good to pass up, and they offered me $70 in free groceries. They "reward" you with certificates for free groceries quarterly, with extra points earned when you buy "house" brands, which we of course always do. My first bunch came today-- $85! in free groceries!

Not too shabby. That will cover most of my bill next week. I'm trying to shop once a week on Mondays and do all my meal planning on Sunday nights.

This sudden streak of organization began last night, as today is the first day both of my kids are in school, in the same school, on the same schedule. Only 3 days a week, but still. It's amazing how much you can get done without one or two little ones going in and out of carseats and slow-poking around.

Today, I made two loaves of zucchini bread, went to the bank, thrift store drop off, got groceries, mowed the lawn, dropped off forms at the doctor's office, and still had time to work and eat lunch. Amazing!

Part of our new routine involves healthier snacks, even more reading, preschool worksheets, and less TV time with the kids, and so far, it's working out. Of course it's only day one!

They sent me some referral codes for the credit card, wherein me and my person would both get an extra $25 in free groceries, but I'm not sure I know anyone who needs another card! Oh well...

    That is fantastic! I sure wish that I lived near a Kroger's. What a great deal.
