This week I visited CVS 2 times and went to Walgreens and Meijer.
Total for items in Picture was $24.83
Then I spent $9.62 at CVS and another $9.95 at CVS Both trips were mainly Mt. Dew This is a major stock up of 12- 12 packs for under $20.
*** This brings my 3 week total up to $84.32
I was hoping for a little less but what can you expect when you buy 12 packs of pop!?!?!
BTW-- I'm thinking of extending my pantry challenge another month! The deals have been so good that I've not seen my stock go down that much.
Plus I have new motive... my computer has shown the dreaded "blue screen" 2 times in the last few weeks.. yikes!! It's working fine now but I fear it's on its last leg (4 years old). So if I can save money, it might go towards that or if it can wait a few more months, my grocery budget might be able to buy me a new computer!! How cool would that be!!!!!
Oh yea, My freezer is loving it too... There is so much stuff in there that has sat on the bottom for way too long. I'd love my freezer to be at least 1/2 empty when garden season comes back around!!
If your family drinks any Pepsi Products or if you like to have it around for special times. This week is a great week to pick some up at CVS! (other items are also included check your ad for specifics)

You can also pick up some Oust (use b1g1 MQ) or some Soyjoy bars $6. get 6 ECB back and use this $5./$30 CVS coupon to make your total even lower!!
1 Samuel 12:24 But be sure to fear the Lord and serve him faithfully with all your heart; consider what great things he has done for you.
Galatians 5:13 You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; rather, serve one another in love.
2 things have been on my heart lately.. **Serve Christ** **Serve Others**
I'm trying to teach my kids this principle. (and myself of course!) If we get this through our head, everything we do takes on new meaning. It's a lot easier to be happy and to do the things we need to do each day!
I was NOT put here on this earth to serve ME..
It doesn't matter if I don't like it, or if it bothers me, or if I don't want to... I Serve Christ and I Serve Others...
When I tell my kids to clean up, I often hear "but I didn't make the mess" Well my response is now... "Serve Christ, Serve Others are you mentioned there?? (no) Then it doesn't matter who made the mess, clean it up to serve Christ and to serve others"...
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!!
This will be the 3rd week in the Pantry Challenge. So far for the month I'm just shy of spending $40.00!!
I'm staying well stocked with the awesome grocery hauls I've gotten from Walgreens and Meijer!! This week I'm not sure if I'll do any shopping or not??? I'll wait to decide until I can properly take a look at the sales!!
Here's what I'm planning for dinner and I'm pretty sure I have everything I need for all these meals!!
Monday -- Scrambled eggs with cheese, hashbrowns, and bacon
As you can see we're having salad again due to the FREE salad that Meijer had this week. I'm pretty sure we'll have it again next week since I got 3 bags and the date was 10 days out!! Good thing the whole family likes it when we have these!!
to the One who remembered us in our low estate His love endures forever. and freed us from our enemies, His love endures forever. and who gives food to every creature. His love endures forever. Give thanks to the God of heaven, His love endures forever.
All Purpose Plunger -- .99 cents after $1.00 Rebate -- limit 2
**** 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.
