My Farm Fresh Shopping Trip 9/18

Farm Fresh 9/18

I love shopping at Farm Fresh on Wednesdays when they double $1 coupons!  Today was a small trip because I only went in for cereal and yogurt.  As I was wandering through the aisles I came across the sale on the Minute Maid juice boxes and V8.

My children love juice and getting it for $1 was a great deal!

All the items in the picture were $1 or less.  The yogurt came out to be .25 a cup after the coupons.

March is National Frozen Food Month

Did you know there are times of the year when it is best to stock up on food and other items?

This month is the best time to buy frozen food and stock your freezer.  You will find stores that are going to be having huge sales on vegetables, ice cream, dinners, snacks, and anything else that is frozen or can be frozen.

Be sure to check your newspapers and online coupon sites to get your coupons ready.  it is going to be a big month!

I remember last year’s shopping spree when I was bale to get like 30 boxes of Green Giant vegetables, hot dogs, frozen pizzas, pies, and other goodies for the freezer.  We did not eat the junk food everyday.  Most of it lasted through December.  So, I’m ready to reload my coupon book and get going. 

I missed the HUGE frozen food sale Target had last year.  I’m looking forward to it this time!

If you don’t have a freezer or think you may need to purchase one, check out Walmart, Target, or Sears for some really good deals this month, too.

Happy Shopping!!

It’s Time to Go Shopping

I have been bad!!  I have not cleaned out my coupon binder since December :-(  I know a lot of good coupons have gone to waste, but the good thing is, they’ll be back!

I have been collecting and keeping up with my inserts.  Haven’t filed them, so I will probably have to take 2 or 3 days-not all day-  to get them organized.

It feels good to be back to working on my blog.  I moved it and had to start over.  It’s not so bad getting a fresh start.

Anyway,  I’ll be posting more articles and how- tos over the next few weeks.  maybe some videos, too ;-).

Talk to you soon!
