Planning for shopping

Well, on July 31, I made my menu for 3 weeks. We made it 4 weeks and now things are getting low again. I am organizing coupons and getting ready for some shopping. Today, I will run over to Sentry. They double coupons up to .50 cents and I have a $10 birthday coupon I want to use. Tomorrow Pick N Save has double to $1.00 up to 5 coupons. So I will go there. Then I will finish with Aldi's. I need to make it for another 3 weeks and keep the bill under $200. Which gives me $14.00 a day to feed my family. I have to have 3 weeks worth of dinners, some lunches and some breakfasts. I say some because my kids get school lunch and breakfast.

I will post to you how I do. :)

Hi MamaMueller!
Thanks for reading my blog! The Daniel's Sentry has a coupon that you get on your birthday. You would have to call your Sentry and see if they do this! On your birthday, you go into the store ( customer service desk) and sign up for the birthday coupon. It's $5.00 off of $35.00 or $10 off of $50. I picked the $10 off.

Our Sentry is okay. The prices are TOO high, so I am very careful when I shop there!
