Grocery Deals!!!

Print Friendly and PDFPrint Friendly
This week is a hot week to shop at Smiths!!  There are some amazing stock up deals!  I am a coupon user and I save a lot of money by clipping coupons.  Today I bought 80 items for $32.78, with my total being $94 before my coupons were scanned.  I am telling you this because even though the sale at Smiths is really good, with coupons it is amazing!!  I got free pasta, toothbrushes, cough drops, .24 Propel waters, Stove Top Stuffing for .25, etc.  I am willing to help anyone who would like to coupon shop.  Contact me and I can show you how!  


The following amounts are what a person or family would need for a year storage. I only show these so you understand what it will take for a family to live off of storage. Work on your 3-month storage until that is complete and then work toward the year long storage.

So you see if I had just gone to the store and purchased my items without using coupons I would have saved quite a bit, but I would also have paid $94.00.  With clipping coupons my total went down to $32.78.  That is quite a savings!!

November is here and we have new goals to start.  This month will be all about storing cooking essentials and personal hygiene items.  In November the stores have many baking sales and we need to take advantage of these low prices and stock up!!  Watch for yeast, baking soda, baking powder, oil, spices,salt, etc. to be at rock bottom prices.  Flour and sugar are also great deals, and we will be storing those in Dec., but feel free to purchase those if you find a great price on them.  Watch for canned pumpkin, cranberry sauce, stuffing mixes, olives, cake & brownie mixes to also be on sale.  It is kind of a big month for stocking up on groceries so pace yourself and stay within your budget!!

November Goals:
  1. Cooking essentials-yeast, baking powder, baking soda, spices, oils, flour, sugar,salt, etc.
  1. Personal Hygiene supplies.  Watch for sales and buy enough to last for 3 months.  This includes all feminine hygiene items, diapers/wipes, soaps, shampoo's, deodorants, toothpaste, toothbrushes, floss, hand sanitizer,etc.  And if you don't have a portable potty, this is the month to finally get one put together.  Click HERE to view a previous post on luggable loo's.  
Enjoy the journey!
Enjoy the blessings!
Feel the peace!!
