Saving Saturday!

This week I did not have to go grocery shopping! At least not for a full weeks worth.

Last week I decided to write up two weeks of menu's and I shopped for two weeks.

It was so nice not to have to go to Aldi's and do the weekly shopping.

I thought I would try this out this month and see how we would fair for two weeks on one shopping trip.

So far everything seems to be working out very good!

I actually could not believe my bill last week for two weeks was very reasonable which left a little over for a few extras that I picked up this week.

Since I had a little extra this week I was able to go to a couple of local stores and snatch a few good deals.

Here they are.

At Target this week I was able to buy :

2 Lysol Neutra Air Kits On sale for $5.99 each
Used 2/5.00 mfg coupons and they came out to .99 cents each!
2 Pepperidge Farm Gold fish $ 1.79 each
Used 2/ 1.00 Target coupons paid .79 cents each
2 Nestle Tall house cookies refrig. dough on sale for 2.39 each
Used 2/ 1.00 mfg coupons paid 1.39 each (a treat!) We never buy these!

(Cookies in the oven Great Excitement! )

I also shopped at our Local Stop and Shop grocery store

I was able to buy 4/ Healthy Ones Deli meat

Reg price 3.49
Sale price 3.00
Used 4/ .75 cent coupons which where doubled.
I paid $1.50 each !

The Lord is so good!

Keep looking for those great deals! God Bless, Kathy @ In My Mothers Garden

Hi there-

I would love to know how you do all your shopping, how much time do you spend preparing and then shopping. I am a mom of six so far and I do home school. I find I just don't have the time to go to a bunch of different places and then addind coupons on top.
Homeschooling takes up most of my time. My oldest 18, does help a bunch, but with little ones, it is hard to have extra time.
So how on earth do you do it!

Do you ever feel bad about being out of the house so much , to do the shopping. I always feel bad, leaving mine for a while.

Also do you live close to all the stores??? do you think you are really saving money by going to different stores.

I have about $100 a week to work with for my family.
I have seen many women write about their savings only to find out they use wic and food stamps. That does not help me!! I don't see any where that you say you use either.

So I would love to know how you do your shopping.

Do you use videos for school, does that give you more free time?? I am just wondering , cause it seems like I never have time for my self.
I see you blog a lot, is that your free time and how do you get it. I would love to blog, but again I have no "free" time.

Well have a good day. Thank you for any help you can offer.
