This has been a busy week as everyone started back with their school work and activities.  Weeks like this make me so thankful for our pantry stockpile.  Not only did we have items for our own meals, we were also able to make a few sides for a covered dish lunch at Church and a meal for a family with a new baby without having to run out for items we needed.

I also stayed home for another reason.  I realized early in the week that we are out of chicken.  That probably seems like a strange reason, but we buy our meat in bulk so it’s a larger purchase.  Normally I get it from Zaycon (and already have an order set for the next Chicken delivery) but they aren’t coming with Chicken until March.  We can’t wait till March so all of this weeks grocery budget will go towards a case of chicken from our local restaurant supply store, US Foods Chef Store.  They have fresh boneless skinless chicken for around $1.49 lb or about $60 for a case of 40 lbs.

So I come with no fun stories of how much we saved using coupons, just how much we saved because we stayed home!

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

      Shopping has really changed now that my Publix no longer doubles coupons. I still saved $66 and did a gas card deal but I left many items off my list since they depended on doubles for a good deal.

        I so agree. I am like in an abyss trying to figure out how I’m gonna shop and save money. I told the guy Saturday that I was not happy they did that. He said, “well you didn’t have any coupons that would’ve doubled anyway” and I said, ” cause I know better”. May have been snarky, but I’m really not happy. My totals had started creeping higher a few months ago anyway so I’m going to have to change how and where I shop.

      I love Zaycon. I have chicken in my freezer right now. I need to stock up on their beef:)

        We have tried the 97/3 and now the 80/20. The low fat made great everything except burgers. The 80/20 is obviously more fatty so you have to choose how you want to use it. We picked up the 80/20 a month ago and tomorrow I pick up the pork tenderloin and boneless chops – can’t wait.
