Grocery Geek Presents: Holding Out for Pay Day

Two weeks and I haven’t done much grocery shopping at all. In fact, we ran out of milk and I didn’t get more for a couple days. We survived. But, my big stocking up and our weekend away basically used up my grocery budget. Bummer! I think there were a few “nickel and dime” stops […]

Grocery Geek Presents: Oh My! I Swept ‘Em!

Last weekend I was a shopping maniac. I went to Walgreens, Stater Brothers, Ralphs, Albertsons, SUPER Walmart, AND Vons. I had a blast and got a boatload of food for great prices. Disclaimers:1. It took some research to find coupons and locate the deals. Thanks go in part to my partner-in-crime coupons, SaveAtHomeMommy, and MoneySavingMom […]

Grocery Geek Presents: Albertsons is My Besty

Grocery Geeks start early around here. This is FishBaby helping me unload the other night. I’ve gone a little crazy with the shopping and cooking ahead. But, according to Quicken, I’ve only spent $360 so far for the month. Often I find an error in my data entry, but here’s hoping not. My freezers still […]

Grocery Geek Presents: Find a Coupon Buddy

I remember having heard an acquaintance scorn the idea of “cherry picking.” (That is, just shopping for the best deals at […]

Grocery Geek Presents: Let Your Little Brother Do It

So you know, my brother moved in with us while he finishes his last semester at college. And since he has late night classes. And since he asks me if I need anything while he’s out. And since I usually do. I sent him to school with a stack of coupons. Yes, yes, I did. […]

Grocery Geek Presents: 50 Cent Cereal AGAIN!

Y’all were doubting me when I said that my target price for cereal was fifty cents, weren’t ya? But, looky here! Kashi cereal for $.50 a box. Oh me oh my. Albertsons has a great deal on Kashi products this week 2/$6 doesn’t sound like a deal, but when you buy 4, they’ll give you […]

Grocery Geek Presents: A Date Night Shopping Trip

Do we know how to live it up or what? Tonight for date night we drove by a possible rental, ate at In-N-Out Burger and went shopping at a new store that had fantastic prices. It’s been a wild week for a number of reasons, so it was nice to spend time with my honey […]
