Come post your grocery shopping deals and grocery savings at the weekly savings linky. How much did you save on your groceries? The Top Frugalista wins a feature and a free ad space every week.


In honor of ALDI finally opening stores in South Florida, I am hosting a great ALDI giveaway. You get an extra entry just for linking up below, but makes sure to let me know that you did on the giveaway post for your entry to count.


PhotobucketI 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. You will also earn an extra bonus entry into the ALDI giveaway from linking up your frugal posts.

My Grocery Savings

This week has been a very frugal one, but I have not gotten any grocery shopping done at all. Last Friday my four-year-old son brought a stomach virus home from pre school, and by Sunday afternoon I had three very sick boys, and I had gotten the virus myself. Monday morning my husband decided to participate in our sick run, and we are still trying to pick up the pace again. My four-year-old has been home all week, and my eight-year-old has only been to school twice this week.

Because neither of us had much of an appetite, our fridge is still booming. I considered going shopping today, but I still do not have the energy level needed, so hopefully I will get to go and pick up a few things tomorrow.

The only shopping I did this week was through my husband and through the mail man.

My husband picked up free diapers at CVS (after CVS bucks and coupons) (Saved $21)

The day after we got the diapers, I got 2 packs of diapers in the mail to test.

My husband picked up ink at Office Depot – For Free – I had a $10 off coupon, and I used a $40 gift card I had gotten from TwitterMoms (Saved $43)


The Top Frugalista Of The Week Is

This is the first time that Marsha linked up at the Weekly Savings Linky. Marsha is a very frugal shopper, and she is especially great at Walgreens’ shopping. If you have not done so already, I encourage you to stop by her post about last week’s Walgreen’s shopping, as she did fabulous. 
At Marsha’s Spot, Marsha writes a little bit about everything. She does a lot of crafts, and she knows her way around the online earnings world.
I encourage all of you to stop by Marsha’s Spot to see what kind of frugal things she is up to.
