Yep, I used up more of my excess but I got some great deals this week and I'm still under budget for the year! The battery deal was the best part of the week and I can't wait to get more next week after my coupons from The Q Hunter arrive. I was also able to use the Food Lion deals from last week to get more things for the upcoming food pantry drive at MOPS. I already have a big plastic tote FULL of items!

Speaking of budgets, don't forget to take my VERY quick survey (2 questions) on monthly grocery budgets. I'm anxious to see what yours is like.

I went to Kroger to get my batteries and lunchables today and found the bread encrusted chicken sub lunchables to be on clearance for .79, so with my coupons, they were $.03 each. woohoo!! Cheapest trip i've ever taken to the grocery store for batteries and subs. There were about 8 more, but I only took what the boys would eat for school lunch for tomorrow, since they will expire soon, thus the clearance. Shute's lane Kroger, TN

Congrats on the savings. You did really great. I'm thinking of getting those lunchables. Are they good?
