Did you stay in your budget or get some good deals?  Link up and share your shopping trip.


  1. OH MY WORD! That is a lot of stuff. Where did you do your shopping this week?

  2. I got the marked down dairy at Safeway and the steaks at Safeway. It is hit and miss when I go there and just happened to go at a good time. I got some of the free items at Albertson's with their double coupons. The produce was bought at Rosauers and Town & Country. I had to pass up a lot of good deals, but I was able to get some good deals. I am trying to focus on what I have not, the fact that I didn't get some feta cheese and a few other items I really wanted!
