Weekly Shopping Trip--Saved $92.71

IF I had purchased everything that I bought at full price it would have cost me....$222.87!! However, I walked away this week with only spending $130.16!! AND to top it off I didn't have any coupons or gift cards to use for anything that I purchased! I know that it seems like a lot of $$$ to be spending for one week but my freezer was bare so I needed to get meats for meals! So how did I pull this shopping trip off with no coupons and still come under my $150/weekly total. Here is how....sales and meat markdowns!!!

Thanks for stopping by today. You got some great deals!! Have you seen the MealBox printable Meijer coupons? I got 16 oz Kraft shredded cheese last week for $2.53 each with the Sat sale b1g1f and $1/2 Meijer coupon.

What do you recommend for handwriting? We're going back and forth b/c our oldest is left handed (so is my husband).

you got some good deals, and you have stocked up your freezer, that always feels good.
