My yogurt making has stopped for the time being. It just kept getting weird the last few times and I finally decided maybe the humidity had something to do with it. I don't know. But at any rate, we really miss it and until I start making it again I will probably be buying some.

Giant: $3.49
Saved with Coupons: $11.75
Saved with Sales: $0.99

Vince forgot to stop and get milk at the farm we buy it from so I had to purchase some at the store. Wow, when that happens I am always reminded how much we save by normally getting it for the $1.50/gallon that we do.

I had a $10 catalina from last week that I used to purchase these items. Then for buying the sour cream I got another $5 catalina.

Glenwood Foods (local discount grocery): $26.56

Had to stop here in a kind of emergency to get a few things that I needed for making pickles. But I also scanned a few of their other items that I know are usually priced really low and grabbed some of those things as well. My favorite purchase was the juice for $1.39.

Centerville Bulk Foods: $42.34
I was so busy the day I stopped here (had bought corn to do that day) that I didn't even bother to take a picture. So just think of lots of bulk food items and some fresh fruit and cheese. :)

Misc.: $0.48


  1. You shop at Glenwood too? I go about every other week, and buy the groceries that I don't have coupons for. I also got grapes last week there, and thought they were delicious-so hard and crunchy!

  2. Yes, Rosanna, I do occasionally. If it was closer or more on my "beaten path" I'd go more often. And yes, those grapes were delicious. I was wishing I had gotten more!

    Maybe I'll see you there sometime? Wonder if I'd recognize you? :)


I love your feel free to leave them!
