I am so excited to get back to couponing, I mean really couponing, actually couponing at a store other than BJ's! I literally have only been shopping BJ's and Target all summer. Not that you can't get amazing deals at the club. But many of us agree the produce isn't as great and sometimes with a little bit of effort your local grocery store that doubles coupons will give you a better deal. Giving every dollar a name
It is important to give every dollar a name when you are budgeting or trying to save money. We are frugal by nature and it now comes second nature to think three times about every dollar I spend, but sometimes you just need a break from couponing.
If you are new to couponing be sure to check out the Beginners page here.
This little trip at Tops Markets should last us the next 6-7 days. The milk probably won't depends on if the kids are eating cereal this week- which for school I try my best to get them to eat eggs. I already have my freezer stocked full of chicken ( we raise our own, Beef, and fish) I always have my pantry filled with these items so that each week I only need to grab snacks, produce, dairy and a protein. It makes it much easier when you can shop from your pantry first when saving money on groceries.
