My wonderful husband volunteered to do the shopping for us again this week. And I happily took him up on his offer! It was kind of a last minute thing, so I just wrote a quick list for him and he went to Dillons. Here's what he got:
In addition, pictured are the other groceries we got this week–2 dozen eggs from my family's chickens (nothing beats farm-fresh eggs!), 4 loaves of bread and 4 boxes of stuffing that a friend picked up for me at Aldi which were reduced to $0.49 each! I think I'm seeing some French Toast in our near future! 🙂
All totaled for the groceries pictured we spent right around $42. I was really happy with that since in addition to what we already have in our cupboards, refrigerator, and freezer, we should have plenty of groceries to last us for this next week and I never even had to step foot out of the house to get any of them! And, at this point in my life, that's a pretty good bargain!
Someday soon, I hope to be back to more regular bargain-shopping and super sweet deals, but at this season of my life, I'm aiming to keep it simple and very manageable. And thanks to our stockpile of past past deals, so far we've been able to do that while sticking with our grocery budget–which I'm very happy about!

You DH gets a gold star for doing the shopping and using coupons. So many men are embarrassed to use them!
I just love it when you can count on your husband to stick to the grocery list and use coupons-it comes in handy when you can’t get out to the store. Great post. Sorry-I think I may have entered my link twice by mistake above. 🙁

Thanks for the chance to link!
I’m hoping for some great Kroger sales later this month as we get close to the holiday weekend. I need to stock up again!
Best to you!

Your blog has been really helpful and inspirational to me. This week I went “Rolling” for the first time at Walgreens, using the tips I learned from you. I can’t wait for tomorrow to begin a new week of deal hunting!
I love your grocery photos as well. I’d love to hear your menu plans for that stuffing – I’ve had some in my pantry and trying to decide what to cook with it. I heard that Kroger was having a sale on turkey breast this coming Thurs, Fri, Sat for mother’s day. Ideas?
Money Saving Mom here: So far, this is one of our favorite recipes using stuffing:

I am really jealous you have a Couponing Husband… Thanks for all the hard work and the chance to link up!
Very impressive shopping!
How many gallons of milk do you guys go through in a week? My family of 5 drinks at least 6 gallons of milk each week.
Money Saving Mom here: We usually go through 3/4 gallon of milk a week. We don’t drink milk so we just use it on our cereal or in cooking. Since we’ve been eating lots of cereal recently, we’ve been going through about a gallon per week.
Hope that helps!
Your DH did fantastic!

I miss having farm fresh eggs. Thanks for hosting!
Have you had a chance to get in on Leeker’s double dollars this week? I went yesterday and was able to get some decent deals. I used the BOGO shredded wheat from Vocal Point as well as a $1/1 which doubled to $2. I ended up paying $.50 for both boxes. After my $1/1 coupons doubled I was able to get most everything I bought for around $1 or less.

I am impressed that he uses coupons! My DH won’t. 🙁

I got several good deals at Albertson’s this week! Pork Ribs $1.49lb and free Tortillias,
OMGosh I agree! My husaband’s idea of a good deal is if he can find everything he wants. I love your grocery photos!

This is the type of extreme shopping I’m trying to get into. Keep it up with these posts they serve as inspiration.
My baby just turned 3 weeks old & I’ve just started venturing out on my own again… now with 3 kids. It takes a while to get back into the swing of things. And that’s OK!
I went to Dillons today and saved over $20! I got BOGO free roasts (2) and since we’re going to a BYOM BBQ tomorrow, I picked up 2 packages of chuck charcoal steaks for BOGO free, too! I also got the 4lb. bin of strawberries on sale for $4.99. If I let them, my kids would eat every last one of those strawberries in one sitting if I let them! 🙂

This week, I transferred a prescription from Target to CVS and cashed in on the $25 gift card CVS was offering for new transferred prescriptions! The $25 covered my purchases at CVS for the week and I even got $6 in ECBs.
Your “just keeping up” shopping would be other people’s bargain dream. Your hubby is a keeper!
Your so lucky to have a hubby that can grocery shop. He always does so great.
