Wow what a week Southern Savers has had.  You guys have kept my fingers busy responding to emails and comments and it’s great to have so many new folks here.  Thanks Amy and Laura for mentioning me in your list!  I thought it was going to be another week of not getting out to shop but I finally made it out after kids went to bed last night.  Still haven’t made it to CVS but I have an ECB that expires so we will get there!

For those that have asked for so many weeks… a picture.  This is my Publix trip minus 2 cans of beans that got eaten before the picture.  My husband still has the camera hostage so I had to take it with my webcam :)
