Long post ahead! I rarely shop at 5 stores in one week, but I just couldn’t help myself. This weekend, I am happy, and my freezer is happy! Spiral ham was on sale last week (and again this week) at Meijer for 99 cents a pound, so I bought one for the freezer and one to cook and use for all my meals this week. I’m utilizing my pantry a bit this week, so I had extra money to stock up on things- like the extra ham and a ton of bread. I used my last loaf last week to make a huge batch of French toast, which I’ll be sharing the recipe for at a later time, but it freezes very well! Allison’s been enjoying that all week for both breakfast and lunch.

Kroger’s been super good to me this month, too. They have a 25 days of Christmas event going on where every day they release great coupons; some are high-value, and some are even free! I combined those with Free Friday Downloads as well as Best-Customer Bonus coupons they send me every so often, and I got a bunch of stuff for free. It was pretty awesome. AND I was able to submit my receipt to Ibotta and got 50 cents back from some of the free stuff!

Speaking of Ibotta, I’m really starting to utilize it now. I follow MeijerMadness, who posted a moneymaker deal on a Rubbermaid container. I didn’t need another container, but paying only 99 cents and then getting $3.00 back on Ibotta was something I couldn’t pass up! That $3.00 also took me over the $20.00 threshold, so I was able to redeem that for a $20.00 Wal Mart gift card that I’m going to use at Sam’s next week. Hurray! Let’s take a look at everything I got this week.

Will you freeze your bread? I love the deal you scored but we couldn't use all of it before it would go bad. So I'm assuming you freeze it?

I probably should have specifically said that, haha. =) Yeah, we froze all except a loaf of cinnamon bread.

Wow, Meijer does some really awesome coupon deals! I am kinda jealous ;) I also got one of those soup-in-a-jar mixes from a family party Yankee Swap (it was farmhouse veggie) and it was really good! It made a TON though so we ate it for daaaays haha.

Anyway, love reading these Monday posts. Hope you and yours have a great holiday! :)

Thank you, Stacie, same to you! =) I forget what my soup is called but I think it's got a lot of different types of beans. I'm excited to try it!
