  1. Great shopping trip!

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.

    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. ...
