Weekly Shopping Trip--Savings $38.04

After doing a big shopping trip last week and going to Sam's earlier in the week, I did not need a whole lot from the store this week because my pantry and freezer are pretty full. That means that for this next week our meals will be from "shopping at home". I love having the stockpile from buying ahead so that I can just make a quick trip to the store for needed items or not have to go shopping at all.

I made just a quick trip to the stores this week. Colds and coughs have come upon my household so I had to get more throat spray for hubby to use and didn't have coupons or sales to work from so it was full price! Some of my the health products I haven't been very good at keeping a stock of in my house because when I did have a stock of them--they went bad/expired before we used them up.

Here is what I purchased this week:

Wow! What great deals. I have a family of 4 (myself, 17 yr girl and 12 yr boy/girl twins) We barely go thru 1 gal of milk or 1 doz eggs a week.

I am just being nosey .....what do you do with 6 doz eggs and 4 gal of milk? Is this a normal week's worth? How do you keep it for any length? Again I am just being nosey I am sorry.
