We went shopping this week!  It was out of pure necessity and we still have a lot more to do.  But at least we made it there.  I got to Publix and Kroger, and hope to make it CVS tomorrow in Atlanta.

Recently I had someone say that it was wrong to encourage people by telling them they could save over 50% on their groceries every week.  While I admit some weeks you have big events or things that come up I hope that these weekly posts help you to see that by stockpiling and only buying sale items you really can save every week over half of your grocery bill.  I hope too that you are learning that it is pretty easy!!

**Look for Walgreens and Rite Aid deals tonight as soon as we check into the hotel**
