It is time to post your grocery savings at the weekly savings linky, so come link up your savings.

This morning I finally got a chance to head to Publix, and my husband spoiled me to take our two oldest boys. This left me with an adorable 14 month old, who was extremely charming with long fingers.

The Publix store I shop at is on the small side, so there were a lot of varieties that they did not have, but the pluses about this store are great customer service and they take Target coupons as one of the only stores in our area. I stocked up big time on pasta, but half of it will be donated to a local food pantry.

Our fridge was pretty cleaned out of the basics, but at least we had meat to last us a few days in case there were no meat deals.

I am posting this linky early today, as I might not be home later on, so I hope you will all link up below. I would also like to invite all of you to link up your frugal posts (no grocery savings posts) at the Fantastic Frugal Fridays blog party, which just launched today.
