Meijer Trip June 9th

I did something almost unheard of and usually absolutely crazy today.  I took all 3 of my boys with me to the grocery store!!  We spent the morning at a friend's house.  Meijer was on our way home and I really didn't want to drive back to do my shopping later.  I have to brag that I was very impressed with my boys behavior.  They were helpful, got along well and stayed (mostly) out of the way of other shoppers.  I can't say that shopping together is something we'll make a habit of but today was great!!

I told you I would post my Meijer shopping list before I went shopping.  Well .... I didn't get the list posted so here's the list of what I bought instead.  I did 2 transactions to make sure that all my coupons would double.

It has been weeks since I made a big grocery trip so I'm not too upset that I went over my weekly budget.  We should be stocked for meals (both those at home and those we will be packing to take to the park or Kings Island) for awhile again.

I spent $89.81 and saved $85.90 ..... $34.89 of that was from coupons.  That's 49% saved!!
