Resolutions Made Easier

With New Year’s resolutions in full swing, it’s always nice to find external support.  The Kroger Co. Family of stores has a Buy 5 Save $5 deal on items that can aid our resolutions. Sponsored post.


I have made a few resolutions this year.  The first, not so surprising, is to get back into shape.  Getting back into school threw off my entire eating and exercise routine.  With that, I need to manage my time more efficiently.  And lastly, I need to get more organized.

To help me do that, I’m looking for items that save me time, money and calories.  One of my favorite product lines for this is Kashi Go Lean Cereals. They provide essential nutrients without all the added sugar and have plenty of fiber to keep me feeling full longer.  (Awesome for getting through long labs where snacking is forbidden!)

To go along with saving time in the morning, I grabbed some Lipton Tea. I love coffee but end up loading it with sugars because I just can’t drink it black. But I quite enjoy unsweetened Lipton Tea, hot or cold, and it provides the perfect amount of caffeine to keep me going. I’m also thinking of trying Special K Protein Shakes for a late morning snack. I have a class right around lunch time so this could be the perfect thing to squelch those hunger pains until I get home.

I’m also guilty of becoming very dehydrated.  Having stuck to last year’s resolutions and removing all processed foods from my diet, I don’t get much sodium on a daily basis.  Therefore, I’m not that thirsty.  I never drink pop and water gets pretty boring.  So, I’m allowing myself these delicious Gatorade flavors as sweet treats.  I’ll be regaining valuable electrolytes and sodium.  (Full-flavor Gatorade was even recommended by my physician because my blood pressure is way too low!)

I also grabbed a box of Puffs brand facial tissue.  We seriously can never have enough in the house, the car or our pockets!

While my local Food 4 Less doesn’t offer a shopper card, (everyone gets the same low prices) all these products were on a super sale.  I was able to stock up on the cat’s food too so I won’t have to worry about that while I’m in school!

So, make your list and get saving!

    What a great promotion! I wish there was a kroger near me!!

  3. Robin (Masshole Mommy) says:

    That is awesome. I don’t have a Kroger anywhere near me and I so wish a store near me was doing something like this.

  4. I don’t have Krogers here, either, but I like them whenever I visit other areas. It’s been awhile since I drank gatorade. I’m not going to lie, Lime Cucumber seems like a really weird tasting flavor!

    this is a great promotion but as a grain free family this does not really help us… sadly even many of those homecare products contain gluten… i wish there was more out there to help us save…

    I wish there was a Kroger near me! I am also a gatorade fan, due to low blood pressure, and I get dehydrated very easily due to my autoimmune disease. They are great for re-hydrating, and great for when water is getting boring. I have never seen that flavor though! I will have to try it, if I can find it!

  7. Heather @ Mrs. Southern Bride says:

    That cereal looks good!

  8. Mary Dailey says:

    I have tried the cereal and it’s good. I’m not sure if lime cucumber sounds too great, but I like Italian dressing on cucumber, so why not lime?
