I have not been blogging in a few days because of a death in my family. I haven’t even been grocery shopping yet. We’ve been eating and eating tons of delicious food that my parent’s friends have brought over to their home. My most favorite dish was a breakfast casserole with spinach, mushrooms, onions, cheese, and eggs, but then there was a football country ham that my dad's friend gave us. It was pre-cooked and so yummy! I am from the South and I do LOVE Country Ham! I think one of the best gifts a friend can give me is food! I do love to eat!
As I was cruising through facebook tonight, I saw where one of my close friends saved $105.41 on her grocery bill at Kroger and spent about $165! She used to be a Wal-Mart shopper, but after reading my blog, she has converted to a Krogerian! I’m so thrilled that my excitement for saving money has rubbed off on my friends...it's contagious!
When I was over at my parents this weekend, I took their Sunday coupons out of their newspaper! My husband and I stopped getting the newspaper a few years ago to save money, but my gracious parents continue to give us their coupons! I just got done clipping them all and will make my list tomorrow night while looking over the weekly ad for Kroger. Since we haven’t been around much over the past 5 days, we still have meals from last week left to fix and we also have meals being brought to us, so I’m not in a huge rush to get to the store! Once I make my menu, I’ll share!
I do want to let you know to sign up on https://www.pgesaver.com/ to get printable coupons. I received a packet of coupons in the mail today from this site. I had signed up a while back and they sent me a packet of coupons. I also suggest going to http://www.kroger.com/ and uploading store coupons to your Kroger Card. My husband and I do this and we also use clipped coupons on top of the store coupons! We really get a deal on some items! If you have any good shopping tips, please share! I'm always interested in learning new ways to save!
