Did  you seriously think I would shop this week?  I am doing much better than a week ago, but c-sections throw you for a loop no matter how prepared you think you are.  I sent my husband out for milk and pain medication this week, other than that our church has kept us very well fed!  My kids are actually baffled by the fact that people make meals for other families, and I love the conversations it has allowed us to have discussing ways to show people that we love them and are thinking about them…

I actually knew that we wouldn’t shop this week, and we have already used this weeks $50 in the budget towards a Zaycon Chicken order that we will pick up next Monday night.  This is 40 pounds of boneless skinless chicken breasts that come fresh from the processor.  We paid around $68 for it, so that’s a small bit from next week’s budget too but we can handle it.

I’m now off to make sure we have enough vacuum sealer bags and space in the freezer!

How was your shopping this week?  Leave a comment or a link to your savings post.

    • Melissa

      Congratulations on your precious baby! I cannot believe you have been posting at ALL this week! One week after my C-section, I think I was still hobbling around, lucky if I got a shower in – let alone any actual work. 4 months later, it’s STILL a struggle working in those showers ;) Hope you have a quick recovery – with as little pain as possible!

      Congratulations on the baby! I too just had a C section and am far less mobile than you. Looking forward to using your site since I get to stay home now with our twins!

      For my 1st trip after looking into your website I went from $277 at Harris Teeter to $151 so I was very proud of myself. Now I can only get better and better at it. I even got to the point of not wanting to spend more on something I know I can get later at a better price. Haha! Its very interesting on how much I can save and will continue to keep on learning more and more as time goes. Love this! Thanks Jenny!

    • Alison at NOVA Frugal Family

      What a cute picture and I can’t believe that you are back on the computer- let alone functioning. We lived downstairs at our house until my husband had to go back to work two weeks after my c-section and were still trying to make it through the days (and nights). Congrats on the wonderful new addition to your family.

    • Angela

      Congratulations! I found out about Zaycon from your site, and we’re picking up our first order tonight.
