This is more then I had planned, but we now have enough cheese to last though the rest of the month. I still think I will stay in budget if I only buy eggs and produce the next couple of weeks.


  1. Wow! How did you get the milk for $1.99? Was it on manager's special?

  2. Yes, the milk was on manager's special. That is why I bought so much. We put a couple in the freezer.

  3. I love your blog! It seems more organized and easy to read than other couponing blogs. Are the Kroger coupons in the Sunday newspaper? I would love to get ahold of them. These are some wonderful savings!

  4. Christine, Thank you for the compliment. I can not stand clutter. Hopefully I can keep things neat around here.
    Most of the coupons I use come from internet sites. Lately I have not been very good about linking to where I found them. Sometimes they are no longer available. I will try to start linking them when I can so you are able to find them. I will also try to post about individual coupons more often.
    I am not sure if you have looked at hotcouponworld or not, but you can always check their data base for coupon brand matchups. Hope that helps.
