Have I ever told you I’m a sucker for coupons? Just when I think I’ve finalized my grocery list, I’ll get something in my email and I’m just gone. That happened last week with Big Lots; I knew we needed more snacks, and I was tempted to tote Allison to Ollie’s, which is about 25 minutes away. Then I got an email from Big Lots, with a coupon for $5.00 when I spend $15.00. Jackpot! I feel like I’m on a treasure hunt when I go there, because sometimes I come across amazing deals like the Special K bars you’ll see below. Protein bars were on my wishlist, but it just wasn’t meant to be this week.
I finally got my chicken, though! Last week I saved up some money for chicken breasts at GFS but they were sold out; instead, I got frozen chicken at Aldi, who marked it down just enough to make it a good deal. I also feel like I won the lottery with Kroger; just look at the picture below! I get coupons in the mail every couple months, and this time I got 4 free item coupons; I combined that with two free digital coupons I had, plus the Free Friday Downloads, and felt pretty awesome when the receipt said I saved 88%! All in all, it was a great week. Check out what I bought!
2 boxes Barilla pasta: $.50 each
4 boxes of Kelloggs pastry crisps: $1.00 each. Looks like another store had overstock so they sent a bunch here! Great price!
Turkey sausage bites: $1.90

Total: $10.90 after a $5.00 coupon I received in my email
Dark chocolate chips: $7.98
Peanut butter powder: $9.98. This is perfect for adding to yogurt and smoothies; 50 calories per 2 tablespoons as opposed to 190 calories for the same amount of regular peanut butter!
Bigelow tea: $6.00. You can see why they had to discount it!
2 bags of frozen chicken breasts: $5.49 each. It equals to about $1.79/lb, which is pretty good!
