Kroger Trip 9/11

After my CVS trip, I headed over to Kroger.  I had intended to also go to Aldi today, but decided that there were so few things I needed, I would just pick them up while I was at Kroger, and there honestly wasn't that much of a price difference anyway.

Here's what I picked up:

I got one set of Mega Sale items.  I was looking for Multigrain Pringles, but they were all sold out, so I opted for Capri Sun instead.  I didn't have coupons, but at $1.49 that beats the Aldi price by $0.40 and we will definitely use these in the lunchbox, so it wasn't a bad substitution.  I think I'm stocked up with drinks for the whole fall semester now.

I'm going to be doing some freezer cooking, but I was out of pans.  Well those aluminum foil pan 3 packs are what I was going to get, and they were on sale B2G1 FREE, so that was a nice surprise.   I was going to buy 2 anyways. ;)

Also, what they are sitting on is a 12 pack of kroger brand toilet tissue.   It was something that I planned on getting at Aldi, but a little coupon fairy had left a Kroger store coupon from a home mailer sitting right in front of them, so I grabbed it and saved $0.85! ;)

I was also nearly out of frozen veggies, so I grabbed a few while I was there.  $0.05 more than Aldi, but so worth it since the stores are in opposite directions from my house.

I also found this fresh organic mint marked down.  I've never actually used fresh mint, but for that price I figured it would be a nice thing to try.   I'm totally open to suggestions!

Total Shelf Price:  $55.64

Total Sale Price:   $40.45

Price Paid After Coupons:  $35.24  (not many coupons today)  37% Savings

I found a marinade a while ago which uses mint but I never tried it and I have no note of where it came from. I also heard about brewing it with tea or making ice cubes for ice tea with it. I have a whole plant out back of mint so you will have to let me know what you do :)
