Here are some highlights from my favorite trips this month:
Coupons and Store Savings: $50.89
I also sent in my receipt for a $10 rebate. So my total for this trip was $1.79! Because of this trip, I am stocked on trash bags for a long time.
Our small town grocery store ran a .10 cent sale on produce. Each item was .10 cents and here was the breakdown:
20 red potatoes
So for a little over $12 I was able to get loads of fresh produce. I saved over $67 that trip. Unfortunately, that produce didn’t last as long as I thought it would. I’ve decided that we need a greenhouse in addition to a big garden. I was reminded of a conversation I had with an older woman a while back. She told me that while she was raising her 5 boys, she planted a 1 acre garden every year to supply enough food for them as well as provide food for canning. I was inspired by her wisdom and reminded that this type of gardening use to be norm in our culture.
I am looking forward to dropping my grocery bill even more with gardening this spring and summer but more than a grocery bill savings, I am wanting that fresh, organic, natural, local food.
