If you made a list of all the things that moms do – it would be long! We would probably look at it and think, how do I get this all done? One of those things for me (lately) is grocery shopping. I’m in a food rut. But I make my list and get the foods that I know my kids like to eat. What’s even harder is to clip coupons and search the sales to get the best deals. I think back to the day when I was younger. I was the oldest of 4 kids. My mom worked from home, which was very rare in the 80’s) and I can’t believe everything she did. She cooked every meal – we never ate out. She did all the chores – we never had to even make our bed. She said that we would have plenty of chores to do when we grew up. The house was always spotless! She also did all the grocery shopping, looked for deals, and clipped coupons to make the money stretch further. She is a pretty amazing mom! Do you have someone in your life that has been a hero? Make sure you enter them in the “Who’s the Hero in your Life” contest. I know my mom totally deserves that recognition – she’s pretty amazing! I work from home but my house isn’t as clean and I make my kids do some chores. I also don’t cook every meal we eat! But I still manage to save money when it comes to grocery shopping! I’m glad Kroger makes it easy for me to save money without taking up a lot of my time. We just moved to Kentucky about 2 years ago – so I had never shopped at a Kroger before. I have come to love it! Each week the sales are awesome – and they usually send me coupons in the mail to save on the products I already buy. But what makes them the best place to shop is the digital coupons. I can hop online and in about 2 minutes I can load all the coupons onto my card for the products I know I am going to buy.
Movie nights are big in my house, so we always have Orville Redenbacher’s® popcorn in our pantry. Right now you can load a coupon to save $2.00 on Orville Redenbacher’s® Popcorn and Dr Pepper® Soda when you buy ONE (1) Orville Redenbacher® Popcorn, any variety (6pk) and ONE (1) Dr Pepper® Soda any variety (.5L 6 pk) Expires 5/21/2017 Limited Time Offer; while supplies last.

I also received a fun pack of products that I love! I can head to the beach with my Dr Pepper bag filled with an ice-cold Dr Pepper and popcorn – and a towel. I can also bring this Bluetooth speaker so I can enjoy some music while I relax for a few minutes. Doesn’t that sound like an amazing day! We like to get creative with our popcorn so I thought it would be fun to create a Wonder Woman inspired popcorn to enjoy with a cold Dr Pepper. It’s really easy to put together and it’s so good! I love the red, white, and blue stars confetti sprinkles and they go perfectly with the gold glitter sprinkles! (Printable Recipe)
