Wow! You guys REALLY had an an opinion yesterday about my dress options! It was so great to see what everyone thought, and I really, really appreciate all the feedback! I still haven’t made a final decision–I may bring them all–but I am leaning towards 1 or 2. Or 6. Or maybe 5. But I like 4 too. Oh shoot….decisions are so hard! At least 3 is definitely a no.
Almost everything on my list was a “staple item” this week–milk, eggs, yogurt, toilet paper, condensed soup–so I thought it would be fun for Princess & I to make a video about saving on those type of items.
One of the biggest complaints I hear from people who don’t use coupons is “I don’t eat all those processed foods, and they just don’t make coupons for the things I buy.” The truth is that while it IS hard to find coupons for certain items, it doesn’t mean you can’t still save on other items. I know I probably sound like a broken record, but any savings is better than none!
Here is what I got:
At Publix I spent $55.86 for $134.05 worth of groceries, a savings of 59%.
