With finances tighter than I was expecting (anyone in my area need a babysitter?? I'm looking!), I am continuing the food challenge. Some people think I am insane for not spending $250/month on groceries, but like I've mentioned before - it's because I don't HAVE that much money to spend on groceries!
October will be a $20/week grocery budget.
THAT'S RIGHT!!! I will spend $80 for the entire month of October on a family of 5 (about to be 6).
I will keep on shopping from my pantry and freezers (since they are still pretty full).
Is anyone as crazy as I am? You willing to make a tight grocery budget with me?? You stress about money like I do?
Okay, sorry about falling off the face of the earth but my brother came in town and then we took a road trip to Louisiana! I'm doing mostly dinners now because I can't remember that far back what I did for breakfast, but by this point you should have a pretty good idea of what I do!
Here we go:
Dinner - fried catfish with veggies
16 - homemade pizza
17 - leftovers
18 - Chicken and wild rice soup
19 - steak with potatoes and peas
20 - leftovers
21 - Zuppa Toscana soup with salad and rolls
22 - chicken pot pie
23 - 26 - out of town!!!! I have no idea what Dave and Hailey did while me and the boys were gone, but I guarantee they went over my $40 budget!
27 - fajita chicken salad
28 - creamy ranch pork chops in the crockpot with parmesan and garlic mashed potatoes & broccoli.
2 days left!!! We will make it easily although we did go over our $40 because of my last minute vacation to visit my grandparents. I now have a reasonable dent in my pantry (although it could still…

I'm in the mood for a pantry buster challenge. So I'm creating one.
When I began couponing in 2007 - it was out of necessity. We were trying to get out of debt, I was a stay at home mom (still am) and we were (and still are) living off of a teacher's salary. It is NOT easy. I saw couponing as a way to cut down on variable expenses like groceries and toiletries.
Well, it worked. We payed off all our debt (except the mortgage), built up a solid emergency fund, started investing into retirement, started saving for our kids college funds, and bought 2 cars with cash since the beginning of my coupon journey 4 years ago.
But now. Now is a different circumstance where my job remains the same. Get as much as I can with as little money as I can. We are expecting our fourth (surprise!) baby in January, there have been cutbacks at the hubby's job, and he is starting his master's program in January which we are planning on paying cash for. HELLO new expenses!
And while you are there, pick up some swimsuits for next summer! The little kids (I only saw girls) are $5/suit but the big kids section were cheaper!!! Girls xhiliration suits are $3.24! Boys Cherokee suits are $3.48
We are READY for next summer! Note: my swimsuits were not ringing up the advertised price that was on the sign, so I mentioned it to the cashier and she changed it for me.
This is just a good price - 1.25/bag?? awesome. AND, the Huggies slip on diapers deal is still going. $9.49, and get $2 in RR back. Use the $3 coupon from the 8/14 SS (I just got 10 of them!!), and pay $4.49/pack for huggies!
Scroll down a little and there will be a button click that says save $2!! Click on it!
If you are a member of Amazon Mom yet, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR??? Click here and sign up. it's free and you'll save an extra 15%.
Anyway, then click on the Subscribe and Save option on the right hand side of the page:
And then where it says deliver every 1 month?? Click on that arrow thingy and change it to 6 months. That way you'll have lots of time to cancel the subscription after the diapers come. Click subscribe now and check out!! Your total should be $19.45 for .10 a diaper. The other sizes are not worth it on this deal.
So I knew Kroger was doing their typical buy 10 get $5 off business but when I sat down on Saturday to cut out some coupons and really look at everything, I saw some really fun deals that I wanted to tell you about so you can jump on them as well!! Here's what I got so far (it goes until the 30th):
(the watermelon, grapes, nectarines, and bananas were from sprouts - 1.88 for a whole watermelon??!!) Here's the Kroger deals (prices are AFTER the promo comes off) Sunny D .99 - used .25 insert coupon tripled = .24/ea. lawry's marinade .99 - used .50 coupon doubled = FREE (coupon was from September MS booklet at Tom Thumb, customer service counter) Ocean spray sparkling 4 packs 1.99 - used 1.50 coupon from same Tom Thumb booklet - .49/ea. eggs and old spice - free coupons from Kroger home mailer.
And trip #2 Lawry's - same as above Mott's apple juice 1.99 - used $2/2 coupon from Tom Thumb booklet Smart balance 1.79 - used .50 coupon doubled = .79/ea. (I'm low on speadable bu…
If you have any huggies coupons and don't want to mess with RR, then this would be a good coupon to use! Fillers!!
Use $4 coupon from 7/31 PG = $1.99 razor.
Use $2 IP HERE = $5.49/pack There are always random $1 off reach or listerine coupons so combine them with this:
Use the $1 IP from coupons.com for .99 deo. (this is my hubby's fav)
This is just because raisin bran crunch NEVER goes on sale and I rarely see coupons for it. I've seen some $1/2 kellogg's coupons in the inserts lately that would make this $2/box. I normally wouldn't pay anywhere near that price - but I freaking love Raisin Bran Crunch!
For the colgate, use the $1 or the $1.50 coupon from the 7/31 SS. - FREE I might see you at walgreens this week!! (don't take all my diapers!)
