I waited to post this until now because I finally made it out to do some shopping this afternoon.  I was thrilled to get the chance to go shopping by myself!!  Starting this year we have raised our weekly budget to $60 (from $50 last year).  I did pretty good today sticking to that.

    • Great job on scoring those deals! I’ve attached a link to my best deals of the week. My job is coming to an end soon (due to downsizing), so I am *very* motivated these days! :)

    • Are you going to put Mr. Linky up? ;)

    • I know you have enough to keep you busy with all the blogging you do, but I would love to see pictures of what you buy each week..I am such a visual person! Great savings! Wish we had Publix in VA!

    • Thanks for your wonderful site. I try to come up with my own ideas, but there are times when it’s nice to copy another shopping list and go to the store. And you have some very useful lists!

    • Thanks for all of your hard work. I check your site several times each day!
      Do you mind if I post a link from my blog?

    • I’m so glad this is picking up.

      I am new to this site. But seem to like it more than I do HCW. But have looked for a place to register, but haven’t found one. So how do I do this lol And is any of these sales in the georgia area. Thanks

    • Jenny

      No need to register (no place to either). The sales are for the southeast region GA included. You might find the prices a few cents different but that is the case between stores in the same town much less stores in different cities!
