First stop was Walmart to pick up some Snuggle...don't forget about those awesome high value coupons! I really truly believe the cashier I had had never seen a coupon before. She just stared at the coupons for about 2 minutes. Then she opened the bags up to see if in fact I did buy Snuggle (that was all I bought, yep, 4 Snuggles in the bag). After she saw that I did buy it she studied the coupons again, then studied the Snuggles again, the studied me...REPEAT! Finally, I mean like ten minutes later and with $4 less in my pocket I was walking out the door. I should have offered her a Snuggle to cheer her up...or maybe I should have taught her how to coupon?
Next stop was Aldi to pick up a few necessities. I spent $7.88, man nuts are expensive!
Last stop was Meijer for some real deals! I spent a total of 23.44! I was excited to get my favorite cereal on sale...it doesn't get better than Maple and Brown Sugar Mini Wheats! I found some beans for $.34 (1/2 off) because the cans were banged up, the cake mix was the same kinda deal.
I picked up lots and lots of fresh veggies. The napkins, hash browns, and the cheese spread were all $1 after coupons. I was so happy to find McCormick spices on sale...I bought poppy seeds and sesame seeds...I really felt like I needed them :) Oh, and I bought pistachios for some egg salad! Again, I repeat, why are nuts so stinking expensive???
Are you ready for the total going into the cow fund for the month of March????
In three short months of buckling down we have set aside $198.89 for the cow...which means we are half way there already. Actually, we have A LOT of change in the jar too, so we are probably a lot closer than half way.
