Welcome to LINK UP Friday! Glad you are back I have a few things to share with you today.

There will NOT be ANY COUPONS in Sundays newspaper. There is no need to go out and get the paper Sunday this week. You can focus more on gathering you list and shopping for the week.

Here are my freebies I received in the mail this week. I am not sure where I signed up for these. I am now keeping track of the free items I sign up for to share with you:

Diaper Coupons and FREE Zyrtec:

My totals for the week are:

Walgreens $4.98

Kroger $10.83      CVS $5.64      Tom Thumb $14.20


Kroger diapers $15.00 - $3.00 OYNO  catalina printed

Walmart $4.36 - Milk

Sprouts - $11.17 – Produce

Total spent $61.05 Total saved $87.77. I spent $61.05 on $148.82 worth of groceries, diapers and health/beauty care this week almost 59% savings.

I have enjoyed couponing.  However, I feel I am always chasing the best deal. I have a stockpile, but sometimes I wonder if it is enough. Do you feel this way? I am getting low on pasta sauce, but I have not seen any great deals that match up with coupons. I have plenty of pasta and coupons for more. I just need some sauce to go with it. Kroger is finally carrying Garden delights pasta, but it is $1.99 a box right now. I have a coupon for $1.00 off. I hope this goes down soon. I would like to get some more. I also have a coupon for $0.40 for Wacky Mac. It is $1.59 at Kroger. Which would make it $0.75 with the coupon doubled.

We had tacos this week. I love tacos in the summer time with the crunchy shells, fresh veggies and hot meat. There is just something to that combination I just love. I could eat that forever and never get tired of it. I love mexican food. Especially Queso.  Do you have a favorite meal?

Do you love tortillas, but wanting for a sale? Make your own. I will share my recipe for homemade tortillas tomorrow. Check back.

It is Link up FRIDAY again. Please link up below to share how you did this week.


  1. You did great, and you sure made it to a lot of stores too.. That's the way I save big each week as well.

    Thank you for linking up your savings at the Weekly Savings Linky @ Frugality Is Free.

  2. Thanks! Sometimes I don't feel I do that well, since I buy small amounts at each store. Then when I see everything together. It is a lot of stuff. I will stop by your site next week.

  3. You are doing GREAT! Your stockpile will grow with time. A good pasta sauce deal will come around soon, i'm getting low too. There was a Kroger Mega deal in June last year so i'm sure there will be another one this year. Maybe a good deal on sauce?? :)

  4. I am hoping for a mega deal soon. Kroger is looking a little slim in the pickin's lately. I called and asked about them not doubling coupons. They said they are still doubling and tripling, but the coupon policy will soon change.


I love to hear from my readers. Please leave a comment.
