Grocery shopping yesterday was awesome.
No one cried.
We were in and out.
I only forgot to get three items.
I stayed on budget ($70).
I got 10 boxes of name brand pasta for $5.
And the best part: by using a couple of coupons and buying sale items I saved $35.71!
Sometimes I feel like I am really doing a poor job with the whole housewife thing. But when I save 1/3 of my grocery bill without really even trying, well I feel a-mazing. Now perhaps part of the reason I saved so much was because of the huge sale on pasta. And of course it's going to take a couple months to eat it all. But dude, I'm owning it. We have space in the cabinets and we eat pasta at least 3 times a month.
People, I was so excited about the deal I actually texted some local friends.
Maybe you're sitting there thinking that I'm a dork for being so excited about $35. A day later I'm still giddy. But, you see, it was almost $36 - which is even more money!
I don't usually have this kind of success at good ole Kroger's. Whatever. Today, I feel triumphant.
