Yikes! This is the most I've spent at one time in forever!!! It kinda hurt to part with all that money! BUT... as I said before, I have decided to increase my budget for this month so I won't have to shop too much next month and I really did get a lot and save a lot! I got 44 items - that's $1.80 per item! And that includes a 9 lb. ham! A 9lb. ham for $1.80... Ummm yes, I'll take it!
I saved an extra $10.00 with a coupon from Recycle Bank! It is a website that you register and earn points by watching a few videos & reading some info about 'being green'. Then you redeem your points for different coupons. It literally only takes a few minutes!
Now I mostly just need to focus on meat & snacks. And I need to make a few freezer friendly meals! I've never done that before, so I'll keep you updated on my progress!
