Happy Friday everyone!
I have been crazy busy preparing for Christmas this week. I spent most of the day finishing up my last minute gift buying while the boys were in school. I shop throughout the year so I never really have to deal with all of the holiday madness. There are always a few items on their wish list that I don’t know about until we write Santa a list. As of today – Santa is all set Now, I have to start wrapping everything and I can officially kick back and enjoy.
I went through my pantry earlier this week and wrote down all the items I will need to grab for my holiday meals. I think I am pretty good but there are a few things that I wish I had got while they were on sale a while back. I did get a $50 gift card this week…so I will use that next week to take the sting out of the higher than normal bill I will have.
This week I worked it so that I could get to $50 just to grab a Visa gift card. For you guys who have an endless supply of those $5/$50 coupons the gift card deals may not excite you…but I NEVER get to use them. So, the gift card is kinda like my opportunity to get a little savings.
Green Giant Veggies x 4 = $4 (two $0.50/3 peelies)
Goldfish x 3 = $5
Bread = $1.37
Lunchables Duos x 4 = $6
Milk = $3.49
Go-gurt = $2.79
White American Cheese Deli = $3.10
Pop Tarts x 2 = 34¢
Buns = $1.99
Chips = $0 (free product coupon)
Tennessee Pride Sausage Biscuits = $5.59 ($1/1 IP)
Bananas = $2.37
Clementines = $4.99 ($1 insert)
Visa Card -$5.05 (after activation)
So, this week I was at around $42 for my groceries. Not too bad considering I got a few items that my guys requested and stocked up on fruit for the lunch boxes!
