This was another really busy month for me! But this time I was prepared. I knew I had family coming so I made ahead some freezer meals so we wouldnt be as tempted to go out to eat or do last minute quick shopping. So Towards the beginning of the month I went to Winco, Save-A-Lot, and Fiesta and took advantage of their great sales with a few coupons. My shopping total is still a bit high, but I had family here again for 1 and 1/2 weeks. Here is what I purchased:
Winco Spent $96.12 — Saved $30+ with sale prices & coupons
Fiesta Foods Spent $ 18 saved $20+ with sale prices
