This is the week before Christmas, and I am hosting my in-laws this coming weekend. On top of that, we are donating some food to a family a friend of ours sponsored. We bought toys and essentially a week’s worth of groceries for a couple and 5 kids. I gave them the turkey we had in the freezer.
If you have a Kroger near you,I hope you are taking advantage of their 25 Merry Days promotion. Thanks to that, we got free dried cranberries, Werther’s candy, Pillsbury cake mix, Aquafina water, and 7Up. New coupons are released every day. Don’t discount the non-freebie coupons! Some are high value and will get you something for next to nothing.
I’m expecting about $7 in cash back from Ibotta. If you want to try, submit your first rebate within 2 weeks of signing up and you’ll get a bonus $10 cash back.
Target: $63.83 (not pictured)
This includes food for the family, holiday sprinkles for a girl scout activity, and food and snacks for my husband to bring to a Christmas party at work.
This is the time of year we do extra charitable giving, so the food for the family comes from that particular budget envelope.
