My experience with Kroger Clicklist

This post is NOT sponsored, I just really loved this service and wanted to share it with you all!

This weekend I decided to try out Kroger Clicklist.

I ordered my groceries online on Friday afternoon, selected the noon – 1 p.m. timeframe for Saturday and then paid online. It was super easy! When I logged into my Kroger it already had a list of my recent purchases, so I just went through and added what I needed to my cart and then proceeded to checkout.

(real life: we love pizza and tacos)

Clicklist uses your current Kroger account, so all of the points are linked with your Kroger card (I use the fuel points every week. I can’t even remember the last time I paid more than $2 for gas!) This also means any of the digital coupons I loaded onto my card were also applied to my items at checkout. My total order was around $60.

On Saturday I got to Kroger around 12:30, gassed up my car then pulled into one of the designated click list spot and called the number on the sign.

The first three uses have no fee, then after that there is a $5 fee. But I am more than willing to pay the $5 if means saving myself 45 minutes or more roaming around the store, fighting the crowds and waiting in the checkout line.

I’ve have several friends use the service (all who are mommas) and they love it! I think if you have a big family or a large grocery haul, this would be super helpful for you.

While I won’t use this every trip or even every week, I can probably see myself using it twice a month when I go for my big grocery haul.

It was super easy and I definitely use it again.

Latest grocery finds

I love getting ideas on new foods and drinks to try from other bloggers, so today I though I’d share some of my favorite recent grocery finds.

I saw these drinkable vinegars at Kroger this weekend and knew I had to give them a try! I have been trying to be more aware of my gut health, and since I already love Suja juices, I thought these would be perfect to add into my daily routine. I bought four flavors, but I’ve only tried the peach-ginger so far. But it’s a winner in my book!

This was a random find at Aldi. I swear every week their products change! But I love love love pineapple salsa, so I knew I had to give this one a try! I ate half the jar in one sitting (oops), so I give it two thumbs up!

A couple weeks ago I posted about the benefits of honey. Since I don’t have honey from Ryan’s dad at the moment, I bought some local honey to add to my breakfast bowls, smoothie and to keep around for a energy-boosting snack.

This was another random find at Aldi, but now I’m hooked on these wraps. They have less carbs and calories than bread, and it’s easy way to sneak in some veggies. My favorite wraps lately have been pepper jack cheese, turkey, spinach and radishes. I also like to drizzle them with Italian dressing. Such an easy, nutritious and delicious lunch!

Tips for healthy grocery shopping

Guys. I love a good planner. My day feels so much more structured when I put pen to paper and map out my day.

The same goes for grocery shopping. Because let’s be honest. If I don’t go to the store armed with my shopping list, this happens: 

So. To keep this from happening, as the week progresses I keep a running grocery list. Things that pop up while I’m cooking, toiletries I run out of and the staples we buy every week.

I also break the list up into what I buy at Aldi and what I buy at Kroger. If I have time, I try to buy produce from our local farmers market, but let’s be real, I don’t always have time for that at 7 a.m. on Saturday mornings.

No matter where I shop though, I always try to look at the ingredient list on the products I buy. The more real food, the better! Shopping the perimeter of the store really helps me make smart choices when shopping.

Now let’s take a look at some of what I buy weekly/monthly.

Aldi = chips, breakfast bars, lunch meat, cooking + baking essentials like sugar, flour, oils, etc, produce, milk, eggs, spaghetti, yogurt, protein powder and sometimes random pickups since their inventory changes from month to month.


Kroger = Suja, golden delicious apples, meat, pizza and toiletries. We have a few items that we prefer the name brand vs. Aldi brand.

I feel like I might be in the minority here, but Ryan and I eat the same five meals every week. Every Monday is taco night, every Tuesday is porkchops + veggies and so on. While sometimes it gets a little routine, it saves us so much money and hassle when trying to decide on what we are having for supper that night — we already know! We never go out to eat through the week and we save money and calories because of it!

This system works for us. But it not work for you and your family. Find what works for you and stick with it. Trust me, it took months and months of shopping at different grocers, meal planning and budgeting to get where we wanted to be.

Food should be fun! Even though we eat a lot of the same meals, we still enjoy them. Sitting with each other and eating a meal together is always one of my most treasured parts of the day. I hope it is for you too.
