Meijer & Target steals and deals

I made a quick trip to Meijer and Target yesterday to do most of my grocery shopping for the week. They had a 10/$10 sale going on with most of the products that I bought, and in addition, I had coupons for almost everything that they doubled! I got several things for free, and the other things just for a great deal, or because I needed them. My total before sales and coupons was $39, and I ended up paying $20.03!

I really just went to target for butter, but ended up getting the coffee for free (with coupons) and the Cream of Chicken soup for $0.20/can with coupons, so I got all of this for $3.14! I didn't have a ton of things I needed this week because I had lots of potatoes left over from the $0.50 bags last week, chicken left over because we only used 1/2 a package, 1/2 of my pizza toppings left over, and a couple of meals that we didn't get to. I'll just tuck my "left-over" $$ in case I need extra next week.
Here is Kathryn enjoying her favorite meal: waffles with "chocate" - she asks for these every day, for breakfast, lunch, and supper :)

Here are the girls playing church. Kathryn found this sheet music of her daddy's, and they were both singing away! Kathryn always has to "blow the note" before she starts singing, and if you start singing without her blowing the note, she'll stop you and say "I never blow the note!!!". Anything round constitutes a pitch pipe :)

Those are some great deals! I am starting to do a little of the research on saving money for myself but don't think I can do it as cheaply as you (our Target is 20 minutes away, as is our CVS) but I definitely will be adding some of the pointers to my shopping and meal planning. Did you purchase the Supermarket Savings 101 e-book? If so, was it worth it?

Cute pictures of the girls! I sure do miss you all!

Thanks for the prayers! Call me when you aren't shopping! :) Jeremy is out of town for the next couple of weeks so anytime is good! Love you! -Jessica
