I also earned .30 cents on my fuel perks card, so I was able to get a tank of gas on the way home for underr $25.00!! WOO HOO!
It doesn't look like a lot of meal items, and it isn't. But, money is very tight right now and I used all    the free coupons I had. We can make the Kraft Homestyle Mac and Cheese for lunch, the yogart will be breakfast and snacks. The fruit will be the same; breakfast and lunch. Lunch meat and bread will be for lunch sandwiches. I didn't buy much dinner foods. We will have tacos 2 nights, but they will be chicken tacos, since we are out of ground turkey. We will also have meatless speghetti. We still have enough stockpile chicken and ham for about 2 months. So we will be eating alot of that! I am not going to write out a menu right now, because I really have to go through my stockpile. The good news is that I haven't been shopping much and so with my husband's next check, I will do a major shopping trip ( I hope!).

Happy Shopping! Stay Frugal!!

I checked with you yesterday about how the coupons worked at Pick n Save. So I gave it a try for the first time. My total before discounts and coupons was $88.78 and after was $46.95. I purchased some bigger items such as 8 O'Clock coffee ($12.00) discount to $9.99 and had a coupon for $1 and doubled it. Also bought some meat items and cereal. I was pretty happy for a novice. Thanks for the coaching. Kindest Regards,

David! That was great! It was about 50%! WOW! My goal when I shop with doubles is to do 60% off so you did awesome!! Please understand that when you see those coupon queens on the TV that get groceries for 90% off, that is not their everyday trips! Those trips are planned well in advance and typically they go to a triple coupon store..their results are not typical! to hit the double coupon sale and get 50% YOU DID WONDERFUL!! GREAT JOB!!!
