The Sunday paper had four coupon circulars inside as well as a free trial offer of Prevention magazine and a free copy of the book Healing Foods with no obligation to continue with a subscription. I decided to take them up on their offer and ordered the freebies.
The Fred Meyer ad had coupons for milk at 99¢ a half gallon. I was able to stockpile 12 half gallon containers of milk in our freezer. At 99¢ each, less two 25¢ coupons and a 15¢ bag refund my final price came in at 93¢ per gallon!
I also picked up four bags of frozen boneless, skinless chicken breasts $5.99 each and 4 boxes of pasta 79¢ each less $1 coupon making the final price 54¢ each.
I used funds from February’s and March’s grocery budget for the chicken as I don’t intend to use any of it until then and the same with 8 containers of the milk. I always have to be careful doing this that I don’t get carried away and end up shorting myself so much that we are out of funds at year end or that I have to have a really tight month to get back on track. Now that we no longer have the extra $25 stock up budget each month it is definitely going to be more of a challenge.
I picked up four packs of sugar-free gum at Fred Meyer for 59¢ each to put away for Easter baskets.
I took the girls shoe shopping and was able to get them really nice Avia tennis shoes on clearance - $17.99 and $23.99. I was very pleased.
I received a coupon for a free coffee from Starbucks through WeHeartFreebies.com. I also perused my favorite online coupon sites and printed off a lot of really great coupons including the two I used for milk.
I made 8 more granny squares using up my yarn scraps.
I sent out thank you notes written on homemade note cards.
On my way to Bunco I dropped off my water bill in the drop box and saved a stamp.
I sold three items at my Etsy store this week!
I made refried beans from scratch.
The chickens blessed us with 13 eggs this week.
