Packing the Pantry

I was taking the title here seriously this week! I was down in my stockpile recently and I felt this overwhelming feeling that it is slowly dwindling. The problem...there haven't been many good deals lately so restocking hasn't been going too well!

I did a good job filling up the shelves this week. Last month I only used a handful of coupons. I thought I was okay with that, but this trip refueled me. I had a lot of fun scoring these deals!

I know it is hard to see everything I got, but trust me...the $37 spent went far.

The highlights...
10 bricks of Kraft cheese ($.17 each)
8 Ziploc baggies ($.25 each)
8 Nestle morsels ($1.17 ?? each)
Barilla pasta ($.50 each)
Juicy Juice ($1 each)
Cereal ($1 each)
Nesquick ($.25 each)

So, how did you packing the pantry go this week?

Well, it takes time to practice.

Now that you are back in the states maybe you can start all the couponing stuff :)

Yeah!! Isn't it gratifying when you get fabulous deals to stock the pantry with? I'm like you I always panic a little bit when I see the stockpile dwindle!

WOW!!! That is impressive... I am jealous that all that yummy gooness isn't in my stockpile. :)

It stinks that you have a choice of grocery stores to shop at...I only have Kroger, which here, only doubles up to .50....then Wal-mart which doesn't double AT ALL!!!

The Kroger in Waverly doubles to.99and I go there if there is a really good sale...but the problem is...their prices are WAY higher than the Krogers closer to Columbus or Cincinnati!!!

I have NEVER scored any of that cheap pasta....well...except some Wacky Mac...ONE time...:(

BUT...YAAAY for you katie...you make me SO jealous!!!

Cherie,

Yes, you need a Meijer. I rarely shop at Kroger. They just don't have good deals anymore. Very frustrating since Kroger is 1 miles away.

Maybe you just need to move up here. Or...you could come up here and see me and grocery shop with me every week...or at least every so often :)
