Grocery Geek Presents: Just a Few Things, Well, Sort of, Not Really, Buying Ahead

I didn’t spend the whole week shopping. Honestly. But, from this post, it would seem so. Rather, I had good coupons and no outside commitments this week, so it worked well in our family’s schedule for me to do some shopping. As I explained in the comments of a previous post, all the stores that […]

Frugal Friday: Fillet O’ Chick

One of the easiest ways to save money is on food. There is such a range in food options as well as a range of prices for those foods. For our family, using coupons is one great way that I can save some of our hard earned money. But, I try not to stop there. […]

Get a Move On!

Home Depot Moving

If you’ve got a move in your future, you’ll benefit from signing up with Home Depot. We’ve loved the 10% coupon they provide. It’s so great for buying supplies or helping to fund a home improvement project. With each move, FishPapa has had a running list of all his “wannagets,” and the coupon has always […]

Grocery Geek Presents: I Can’t Eat Bread and Neither Can He

‘Member last week when I said I’d been going overboard? Well, I decided that “enough was as good as a feast” and I didn’t need to do any more grocery shopping until the next birthdays rolled around during the second week of June. It helped that the sales were zippo, so I didn’t feel like […]
