  1. Great shopping trip!

    by , 01-16-2009 at 01:17 PM
    I was up early today, so I decided to take advantage of a $20 off $100 order coupon that they emailed me. I got $181 of groceries for $86.32 oop. Woo Hoo! I need to go back and use the last of my Muir Glen coupons. My total oop for the year is now $90.59. I'm trying real hard to stay close to $200 for food only (so out of the $90.59, $67.59 is non-food). Food budget left is $177.

    Well, DBF is still laidoff. He's thinking he's going to have to move out of his house (he rents) and get a smaller place. I've been stockpiling like mad - but giving him some of it when he needs something (TP, cereal, soap).

    With the inspiration of Jane4girls, I have gotten almost $200 worth of groceries (including TP) for $.84 OOP. I was lucky enough to get 3 gift cards for Christmas. $100 at Raley's (my favorite store), $50 at Smith's (My cheapest store) and $15 at Trader Joe's. ...

  3. Day 23 of Grocery challenge

    by , 11-19-2008 at 01:23 PM
    Ugh! I've been dealing with DBF's layoff, so I haven't been doing as well as I could be. I had to spend about $120 to get him and his daughter groceries.

    Anyway, I still have my $9.02 left. Hoping to get a ham, but this week the store has canned veges 2/$1 so I may just stock up on those.

    I made the BEST dinner last night. I made a sweet and sour tofu thing.

    1/2 block tofu, cubed
    1/4 cup of mixed fruit (I thought it was pineapple only!) ...

  5. Day 10

    by , 11-06-2008 at 10:22 AM
    Still haven't gone shopping, so I still have $30.05 left to spend.

    On day 8, I made enchiladas with leftovers and while they were cooking, I decided to throw in a couple of potatoes for later in the week. Well, yesterday for lunch I heated up one of those potatoes and topped it with the pineapple salsa from my Trader Joes shopping trip. Wow! It was so flavorful, I didn't even miss the sour cream. I'll have another one for lunch today. DBF ate one of my leftover enchilada lunches, ...
