June 15, 2012
I tell you the weeks are flying by, I feel like it was just yesterday that I sitting here going through receipts and doing my weekly totals. Hopefully the summer does not fly by too fast – we still have lots of fun things we want to do!
It was a somewhat boring shopping week for me. I hit Publix once and dropped by Kroger to grab some free pancakes (thanks to a promotion I did on one of my other sites) and to use up the remainder of a gift card I found in my drawer.
As my husband was helping me put away the groceries and trying to cram the frozen pizzas into the freezer, he asked if I really needed to shop anymore –tee hee! We have so much on hand at this point, I really do need to keep my shopping trips small. I will need a few things here and there but like I told him, I really am only buying things that are at the very lowest price possible as well as getting the few things I need for the week.
There was no way I was passing up super cheap Red Gold tomatoes and Pantene!! They both have a very long shelf life and WILL be used here at my house at some point! Ok…so the pizzas were not a must have item. At some point when I am in no mood to cook dinner, I will be very happy to have them in the freezer!
So as you see, this week’s trip was just to grab the best deals on items that will be used over the next few week/months.
