I bought two of those FREE Items and I need a new frying pan anyways...DARN!  Lesson learned.

I have a shopping trip to Safeway planned for tomorrow and some CVSing to do, but I have everything in the list above (plus I had chicken already) to make 13 meals + lunches and breakfasts.

Now I have to go read/study/workout.  Yay for sleeping in until 7 tomorrow :).


  1. LOVE LOVE LOVE DOING THIS!!! I went to Giant the other day and OMG. I was def. the coupon lady everyone was looking at. LOL. I was on a mission. I planned out my attack and went in head first!! I ended up getting over 120.00 worth of stuff for $45 figgin bucks!! It was so....liberating!! The other cool thing was that the customer service desk was so nice as to give me my money back for the coupons that didnt go through! SCORE! Youre my inspiration Suzie!! Thanks so much! Looking forward to seeing more pics of your shopping trip bargain piles!

  2. I AM SO HAPPY FOR YOU! I am telling you, this is life changing. The goal is to learn how to live on less so we can spend more time with our kids and be content. I am really completely excited for you. That is an AWESOME deal and I am gonna tell everyone about it :)
