Guess who has enough coffee creamer to last the next 6 months?
My fridge is full and I’ve saved money, so I’m happy! This week is a little different because I’m only cooking 4 meals this week. Friday and Saturday we’ll be out of town and won’t get back till Sunday evening, so I may not have a grocery post up next Monday. It all depends on how much of the shopping I can get done Sunday night!
Because I only have 4 meals planned, we had a lot of money to play around with. And with the overage we still had from last week, I was able to buy a lot of what we needed, and a ton of what we wanted. Chocolate chips were only $1.00 each at Meijer, and I probably would have bought more if the shelves weren’t empty!
I also had a lot of luck with Kroger and getting EIGHT free boxes of pasta. Tip: If you ever see coupons for Ronzoni pasta, print them out and keep them for a Kroger sale. They’ll usually go down to about 49 cents, and if you have your coupons for $1.00 off 2, you’ll get them all for free! This is pretty much why I never run out of pasta. Here’s everything I bought this week:
