Mar 042011

I know I filled up the  the pantry last week, but I could not stop myself….canned tomatoes at $0.20 each….I had to get them! I was scrambling to find some cans that had a long expiration date, because some of them said May 25 2012…….I just realized today that we are in 2011. Oh well, the canned tomatoes will last a while. I got some great deals on meat and produce at Publix after coupons, so I filled out the little dent I had made in the freezer. I also made sure to share coupons with the neighbors and some friends, because there were plenty for everyone. My kids are really loving the fact that I have added Aldi shopping to my weekly shopping routine, because this means that they fruit bowl is always full of something delicious. Now come take a look and see all the groceries I got for $53 this week

Just Call Me Cheap is written by Erica, a stay-at-home mom of two, who
is always looking for a great deal. Erica is a fabulous shopper, and she knows how to stretch a dollar. On Erica’s last trip to Shaw’s she saved 46th percent.

Erica has a rough time shopping with the kids this week, and I am sure that she could need some encouragement from other moms.
