More Savings!

Ok y’all…I guess this blog is going to be a Maddie update plus random shopping trips and deals of mine and some ramblings of Will J…haha…we’re getting our money’s worth!  I went to Kroger last night and picked up some great deals!  All 16 items in the picture cost me $8.58!  That’s like $.53 per item!  Here’s how I did it:

First of all, I am a BIG NERD and have switched to the binder system, instead of the old trusty accordion style coupon holder…but it’s served me well, after MUCH preparation – ask Will…haha.  Also, the “*” denotes items in the Mega Event Sale which entails buying 10 items and receiving $5 off your purchase instantly!
