$146 Worth of Groceries for $65 - Share Your Deals At The Weekly Savings Linky

The linky is up a little late this week, but it was not because I was out shopping. It was because I was cleaning! Yesterday I returned home from shopping to find a brand new Haan MS30 Steam Cleaner waiting for me, so today I have been trying it out, and I am loving it!

As for the shopping….I am under my grocery budget for the fourth week in a row…WOW!… Read more

The Weekly Savings Linky - Saved $225 - Share Your Grocery Savings

This week I have been doing a lot of clerance shopping, which means that my non-grocery spending increased. Still, with a family of five there needs to be room in the budget for extra spendings on necessities and fun, and thanks to my frugal grocery budget the wiggle room is there. This is my third week in a row where I am below my grocery budget of $65 for a family of five, so I am thrilled about that.… Read more

The Weekly Savings Linky - $120 Worth of Products For $51 - Under Budget Again!

It is Friday again, which means that it is time to look over my purchases for the past week to make sure that I stay within my budget for the year. This was my second week in a row, where I was under my grocery budget, but I have been over budget in other weeks, so it all adds up. Despite being under budget, our fridge and pantry are still filled to top capacity, although I was able to make room for rye bread in the freezer (even after buying chicken) this week.… Read more

Welcome to the Weekly Savings Linky here at Frugality Is Free. This week has been very hectic for me, because between my kids being home on spring break and my own brave albeit a bit foolish attempt to switch Frugality Is Free to WordPress, well let’s just say that I have been a bit stressed out. I still got a little bit of shopping done, but it was mostly running in and out, while my husband and the kids were waiting in the car.… Read more

$164 Worth of Products for $62 - Share Your Savings At The Weekly Savings Linky

This week I did not do much grocery shopping, as we are lucky to have visitors for two weeks. Instead of shopping, I have been spending a lot of time on the beach, which is the best kind of frugal fun. 

My pantry is completely filled up, and so is my freezer, my fridge and my extra storage space in the kitchen, so it has been easy to lay low this week.Read more
