    Default I rocked @ the grocery store tonight...

    After work I decided to get groceries. Its been a long time since I was able to spend a good chuck of money to get the staples and stuff we need. I went shopping for two weeks tonight...

    My total b4 coupons was $205.77 and my total after coupons was $115.49.

    Woo hoo!! Thats $90.28 in savings!! And we got a TON of food!!!

    I even got ground beef that was about to be taken off the shelf tomorrow (I freeze right away) for %50 off!!!

    Just thought I would brag a bit

    Good job. Next time cook the hamb. and cool it then freeze it flat in a gallon storage bag. You can take out quick handfuls forfast nachos,soups,loose hamb sandwiches,chili. Save tons of time after work w/ tired feet.

    You'll prob. get over it as you get older. I do use plastic gloves w/ chicken though. Also I cut up beef w/ kitchen shears instead of a knife and this is quicker too.
