We got some great shopping trips in this week.  I spent a little more than planned but I’m happy with the stocking up we did.  I shouldn’t run out of frozen vegetables for a while or diapers!  I have noticed that in the winter all of our kids eat more food, so I’m considering bumping our grocery budget up to $60 (since I seem to be spending that much lately anyway).

Total before coupons and sales: $113.22
Total spent: $37.62

I also qualified for a $10 mail in rebate with 4 boxes of Shredded Mini Wheats!

      How do you get the MIR on the Kellogg’s Mini Wheats? I bought 4 boxes this week, too.

    • Jenny

      There are forms in a Kellogg’s booklet “New You” at Publix and other grocery stores. I haven’t gotten lucky enough to find one locally but you can also get the form off of ebay, or trade for it on coupon forums. For more info go here:
