I worked the system last night

My beloved local Fred Meyer recently sent out some amazing coupons in celebration of their grand re-opening after completing a remodel.

So tonight, armed with my grocery list and coupons I embarked on a savings adventure.

After TWO hours (I was by myself, so I shopped leisurely) I had a cart full of groceries, and not just the basket portion, the bottom of the cart was packed tight too!

My total before coupons was $208.43.

After coupons?

$94.02

Yeah Baby!

    Good for you! I am not allowed to do the grocery shopping. But I think that Michael has things down to a science. He says he does anyway. And how did I miss all those other posts? I think there is something screwy going on with my reader. It couldn’t possibly be operator error :-)What a great idea to make the bookini bread! I might have to do something like that this week for Madalyn’s teacher. Maybe pumpkin bread since I don’t have a ginormous zuchini.
