Super Savings Saturday: Local eggs, bread and peaches

I did very little shopping this week, as you can tell from the picture, as our freezer and cupboards are pretty full and there just wasn’t much that we needed.

I stopped by a local bread store to use a Groupon I had and bought a loaf of yummy whole-wheat bread (and ended up getting to introduce everyone in line behind me to Groupon since they couldn’t believe my total for the bread was so low!). I bought a dozen farm-fresh eggs. And my mom gave me some peaches they’d picked from a local orchard.

Other than buying two gallons of milk (not pictured), that was the extent of our grocery purchases this week.

So our total in grocery expenditures this week was around $9.

We did go out to eat more than our usual once-a-week because Silas and I went with my husband on a business trip to Kansas City for a few days. That said, we brought some of the food for the trip and we used a gift card we’d been given to Chick-fil-A for one of the meals, so we ended up not spending much out of pocket for food on the trip.

    Love Chick Fil A!

    I skipped shopping this past week to except for a few last minute deals! Thats one way to save!

    I’ve been reading your blog for a few months and this is my first time to post! I love reading about your deals and can definitely say you’ve helped me get through a difficult economic time. Specifically reading about you and your husband (and your sweet little girl!) making it on $1000 a month has been SUCH an inspiration to me! I am in the same boat right now– my husband works full time, we’re in school full time, and I have to stay home to take care of my son, who was born with a congenital heart defect.

    I’ve started my own money saving blog, and it’s pretty plain right now, but I hope to get it up and going (and a lot prettier) soon.

    Thanks, again, for all of your wonderful tips and tricks for saving money. Since I’ve been reading your blogs, I’ve probably saved well over $300… in just a few months!

    Ahhh, you came up to Kansas City? My neck of the woods! Hope you had fun. Those peaches look yum!

    I’ve been reading your blog for a while but this is my first time to link up, primarily because mine is not a frugal/deals blog, but I wanted to share my experience with Kohl’s. I also wanted to tell you how much I enjoy reading your journey. A lot of the things you share, I have been doing for years (coupons, budgeting, etc.) but I still learn from your experience. Most of all, I love that you are guided by biblical principles. For myself, I know how hard that is, especially in the society we live in today.

    May the good Lord continue to shower His blessings and guidance on you and your family, 🙂

    MMM…….farm fresh eggs. 🙂 My mom raises all-natural chickens so I hardly ever have to pay for eggs and I get really good ones at that.

    I wish this could be a no shopping week. I’m out of almost everything. After losing my job 2 months ago, I’ve been making everything from scratch. I’ve finally run out of all my supplies. 🙁 I should just tell my husband to stop eating. lol. He may not be large but he has a high metabolism and a physically demanding job so he eats twice as much and then some as I do. I pick on him and tell him he is expensive to keep around. 🙂

    I’ve saved so much the past few weeks on organic food and I love looking at other blogs to see how they saved so I can create my shopping trip. Thanks everyone!

  • janet says:

    This may sound like a dumb question- but how do you find farm fresh eggs if you don’t know a farmer? We live in the suburbs.

  • Thanks so much for allowing us to link up our good deals here. I get so excited to do it every week!!! I love that you give all of us the opportunity to share!

  • Elizabeth Sue says:

    I had no idea you where in Kansas City for a few days. I wish I would have known. I would have invited you for coffee.

  • Adrienne says:

    Thank you so much for all your great ideas to save money. You’ve literally saved our family hundreds of dollars this year!
