Loving the deals people, loving the deals....

So after spending several evenings this past week reviewing and cutting coupons, reviewing sales, etc; I finally went shopping today. And I must say, (for me) I did extremely well! I was going to post a picture of all the groceries I purchased for the amount I spent, but frankly, it would have just been even more exhausting since I tend to stockpile when I shop. And shopping, paying for, getting groceries in the car, getting them home and putting them away, while with a toddler, in the freezing cold and snow, is not exactly the most fun I've ever had.

I will tell I made out with some fantastic deals! I'll post them here for you so you can see for yourself! (By the way, this will last my family at least two weeks without returning to the store AND I was able to stockpile several things, including a TON of meat, medications, soaps, etc, that will last for quite a while in our freezer and secondary pantry!!)

(unfortunately my scenarios didn't work out as well as I had hoped because they were out of the Throat Coolers, which really put me in the 'green' in ECB's).
