Weekly Groceries- (kind of)

I haven't posted grocery pictures for a while. Basically
because I haven't done any "real" grocery
shopping for 4-5 weeks!
This week is actually no different but I thought I'd
share it with you anyway!!
(plus I had time to take the picture!)

I was in a town with a Kroger so I stopped in
to use some coupons that were getting close to expiring!
(Plus they triple to .50 cents there!!)

I spent $26.01 at Kroger Saving $46.55 (64%)
22 items making it $1.18/ item
(2 butter tubs and 2 Nesquik milkshakes not shown)

Spent $3.99 at Walgreens -- They only had 1 monitor so
I couldn't take advantage of the $13. RR. I only got 5.RR then
I used it for my 2nd trans. and ended up with $2. RR for next time.
Got 2 cereal, 1 milk, 1 honey, and 2 tweezers

Then at CVS I spent $3.24 for 2 conditioners, 2 dawn, 2 packs Ivory soap, and vanilla-- They were also out of the Bayer Monitors.. Oh well Still a great trip!
All totaled I spent $33.24
Oh and did I mention $7.43 of that was on those grapes. I needed them for our Christmas... $3.xx/lb I about croaked!!! I'm glad the kids will LOVE THEM!!
Sometimes It's okay to SPLURGE!!

Psalm Chapter 121

Verse 1-2

In His Word Wednesday

Our God is MIGHTY!!!

Psalm 24:8
Who is this King of glory?
The Lord strong and mighty,
the Lord mighty in battle.

Zephaniah 3:17a
The Lord your God is with you,
he is mighty to save.

Matthew 26:64
Yes, it is as you say,"
Jesus replied.
"But I say to all of you: In the future you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Mighty One and coming on the clouds of heaven."
What has God been teaching you lately.
Do you have a prayer request?
Do you have a Bible verse that has stuck out to you?
You can just leave your link, words, or prayer request here as a comment. We'd love to know how to pray for you. If you don't want to elaborate just let us know you have an unspoken prayer request. We can still pray for you because God already knows!!

Psalm Chapter 120

Verse 1

I call on the Lord in my distress, and he answers me.

Pantry Challenge

I had planned to extend my pantry challenge through
January. So when I read Money Saving Mom was
doing a pantry challenge I jumped on board!!

My Rules
1. Allowed to buy produce, dairy, and eggs
2. Anything super cheap or FREE
3. Hope to spend less than $100. for the whole month of January
4. Possibly spend the extra $$ we save on shoes/clothes for the kids
The bad (or good) thing is with my stock
I'm not sure that this will be very hard.
I really NEED to use up some food...
But a month is a long time so we'll see!

Anyone want to join in???

here, here, and here!

Looks like I'm going to be getting
Free monitors plus $13. overage,
Free Honey Nut Cheerios (wyb milk),

and 2 Free La Cross Beauty Tools!!

I always keep the Bayer $30/1 coupons on hand.
(buy them from Ebay) I Usually buy them when
there is not a current deal going on. They always
raise the price on them since more
people want them during a deal!

Since I started couponing almost 2 years ago
I've never thrown one away and I have always
made at least $5. per coupon!
Take for instance This week at CVS (pg.13)
Buy a Bayer Contour monitor on sale $14.99 get 5 ECB
-$14.99 Bayer MQ (up to $30.)
Total = FREE
plus get 5 ECB back on your receipt!!

Menards 12-27

Menards has 1 freebie this week and
several good deals!

This ad is good through 1/10/10

Smart Caulk Tool -- FREE after $5.00 Rebate -- limit 2

Other Deals--
Tulip passage lock set -- .99 cents after $4.00 Rebate -- limit 6

4" lock back knife -- .99 cents after $2.00 Rebate -- limit 2

Mrs Fields Cookies -- .99 cents after $1.50 Rebate -- limit 4
When you purchase the freebies, you must purchase an additional $10. of non-rebated items per transaction to qualify for the rebate. You can get as many freebies as you want per transaction with only one $10. additional purchase. ((**You can get a $10. Gift card if you don't need anything right now!**)) Your rebate will come in the form of a Merchandise Check. Which means you must spend it at Menards, (I just use mine for more freebies!)
It's been reported that you do not have to spend the $10. and you will still get your rebate. Since the ad says you're supposed to I still think we should as to not take advantage of the program. You can use your own judgement! Thanks for letting us know!
You do not need to purchase any additional $$ if you are only getting the rebated items that are not free.

their rebates go here!
