Grocery Shopping

November 19th, 2012 at 06:53 pm

This last weekend we started our Thanksgiving shopping. We decided to hit any store with sales on it. One grocery store we spent $70.00 and actually managed to save $69.00 between the savings and coupons. Our 17 pound turkey was only 7.50. Gotta love the sales. Another store we thought we would do well in, really hurt our food budget. I'm still not sure why we went there but the DW thought there would be good deals. I'm glad that she finally accepted coupon use (she used to make fun of me) and now considers it a challenge to see how much she can get each week while staying within her budget. I think in the new year I will start keeping a spreadsheet for weekly savings just so we can see how much we save each month with the sales, etc...
*****************************************************
I started my Christmas shopping already, and got some good deals. buy one movie get one free, and the movie was on sale. I'm going to shop online on Thursday and Friday, but am not leaving the house. I have a very strict budget for gifts. The only thing that stinks is my son's birthday and my wife's birthday are in December. I have no idea what to get the wife.

I decided i am going to start a Christmas checking account at ING or Ally for next year. This way I don't have to transfer the money, and wait for it to hit my account. I can just bill pay my credit card right from the account. I use my card for everything, because I get cash back. I've done the research on the two banks, just can't decide which one would be better.
Otherwise it is pretty quiet. I have a short week, (grateful for that) of course my kid and wife are off Wednesday until Monday. I only get Thur to Mon off. Oh well. I will write more later.

    Might look around on etsy.com I personally would love this necklace! However there are lots of neat gifts and jewelry options. Many are reasonably priced too. Good luck!
