Pin It This week we spent a lot more than I wanted but our refrigerator was completely bare. And we need to eat!! I hope, everything we bought will last us for two weeks. I went to Walmart, Target ,Smiths, bread store and Reams this week.
My Walmart trip #1:
2 Eggo waffles-99c ea (price-matched to Maceys)
1 SeaPak jumbo coconut shrimp(BIG box, they are our favorite)-$5.99- price-matched to Maceys
broccoli-3lbs/99c-price-matched to Rancho Market
cucumbers-7/99c (got 5)- price-matched to Rancho Market
pork chops-$1.49/lb- price-matched to Rancho Market.
3 Activia-$1.98 plus used $1 coupons
I also bought lots of other produce, especially apples. Apples are fairly cheap right now, and my kids love them. So I try to buy as much as we can. I also realized that I NEED to organize my coupons. There were a few out there(like SeaPak) that would work for what I bought. I just couldn't find it...
