It's been a while since I posted...I really need to get more regular with this!

I've had a great weekend finding the deals! I hit Publix hard Saturday morning. The key to my success is definitely planning and organization. I can tell you when I dont do either of the above, I never save near as much money! I spent $91.60 and saved $283.68!! I am so blown away by those numbers. That is simply combining coupons with sales. I LOVE PUBLIX!

Here is a little bit of what I got:

5 Coles garlic bread loaves, 10# ribs, 5# of ground beef, 2# beef stirfry, 1 pkg pork chops, 2 pkgs of chicken drumsticks, 6 Heluva good dips, 4 Kraft singles, strawberries, 4 mayo, 2 rice, 13 salad dressings, 15 BBQ sauce, 20 A1 steak sauce, 2 18# bags of charcoal, 2 Glad wrap, 4 Eggo waffles, 2 Lays potato chips, 3 paper plates, 4 pkgs of Hamburger buns (for a b'day party), 2 brownies, 2 poptarts, pickles, 3 Rice Krispies cereal, milk, eggs, onions, ice cream

That's alot of stuff for $91 and I'm sure that I'm missing some stuff!

Anyways, my freezers and pantry are overflowing and I have made a promise to myself that I will not go back to the grocery store unless something is free after coupons until we eat some of this stuff. And I did end up giving away alot of the above (A1, dressing, and BBQ sauce).

So I combed through my freezer and developed some meals out of what we have on hand.

Here is my Menu Plan Monday entry.. Check out Orgjunkie to find alot of other menu ideas!
We may not necessarily eat these in order.....

I hope your memorial day is filled with family, friends and fun! I'm grateful for the freedom I have and want to say thanks to all the veterans out there who have fought for our country, the ones fighting today and the ones who gave their lives!
