Jessica, a new blog friend that I also met in real life last week, has a weekly feature called "Frugal Friday". How appropriate that today I went grocery shopping and took full advantage of this...
I love saving money... or I should say... paying the lowest price possible! Our budget is extra tight, so I am very happy when I can stretch my sweet husband's income, and feed our family well. I give God the glory for that!
Now, usually when I make a triple coupon run, I don't buy anything but the stuff which I am purchasing with coupons. I like to see how little I can spend and how much I can get! In fact, since they limit it to 20 coupons per day, I will go back and use some more coupons I have before this sale is over.
This time, I had some groceries I needed, so I didn't use coupons for the veggies, tortillas, creamer or the salsa that was on sale. My friend Jenny just shared a yummy recipe for White Chicken Chili that I want to cook this weekend, so I had to get the big yellow pepper! And I thought is was very cute that the corn tortillas I found were a new brand I hadn't seen before... called Celia's.
So here is everything I got! Lots of rice (mostly free), 4 boxes of cereal (about $.50 a box), lots of frozen veggies (no coupon there), frozen rolls (they were free), iced tea bags and green tea, mustard (free), creamer for my sweetie's coffee, salad dressing, and lots of fresh veggies. The "retail" price would have been around $116.
