To Market (008/365)

To market, to market, to buy a fat pig,
Home again, home again, jiggety jig.
To market, to market, to buy a fat hog,
Home again, home again, jiggety jog.
To market, to market, to buy a plum bun,
Home again, home again, market is done.

TIME: 1:36 pm
PLACE: Grocery store parking lot
SUBJECT: Grocery Cart

I went to the grocery store today with StellaDella.  $161.42 before coupons. $147.42 after. I saved $14.00! Yeah me!
This is the only photo I snapped today. I took it right before we went into the store. I wish I would have taken a picture of the cart without anything in the background but the parking lot. Live and learn - Next time, I'll know better and isn't that what this is all about?

I have never used coupons in my life, I know its bad. My husband, aka, The Geek, does all the shopping. He can feed the entire family, 5 of us, for a weekend on thirty bucks. He won't even let me near the grocery money, I am much less frugal!

Vicki - I was pretty impressed with myself - but then, I'm easily impressed! ;)

sarah - Send him over to shop for me. I hate grocery shopping with a passion!

breanna - I haven't "couponed" in awhile, but with the current state of the economy I've got to get back in it. Try this site: She has good ideas for couponing.
