I spent under $40 and stocked up on the canned goods.  These are things we use regularly and will be helpful.


I hope this can help someone…  My coupons are definitely a mix of printable and circular.  The Gear coupon I got from complimenting a company on a produce they sent me coupons for some of their other products.  🙂   Got to love that!  Nothing “extreme” here, just some savings for my family and our grocery budget which fluctuates depending on my part time job and my pay check which can vary quite drastically.

Spent $67.70

I got $4.00 in Plenti Points / $2.00 in Extra Care Bucks and 2 Rain Checks at ShopRite. 🙂
