Grocery store freebies

I have neglected this blog too long! I went to the grocery store on Monday and between coupons and sales, I saves $102.00. The man behind me in line was in shock. He kept watching the total go down lower and lower and finally leaned over and asked if he could see what I saved. He was funny, he asked if I did this every week and how long it took to cut the coupons and everything. That was a larger total than normal. I was proud! My freebies included cans of tomatoes, a tub of chocolate frosting, and some candy bars. Another good deal--the ginormous box of Cheerios was on sale for 2.99 (normal 5.98) and I had a coupon for $1.00 off of two boxes. So $12.00 of cereal for $5. Not too bad.

On the weight loss front. I kind of got sidetracked on that for a couple of weeks and gained two pounds. But now, I have taken those two back off plus one more. I am hoping that as we are coming into spring in summer that will improve as I can eat more fresh fruits and veggies.

And the frosting and candy I bought? They are for Easter activities, not for me to eat!
