Last week my friend Amberlina came to visit me. I hadn’t seen her since last December, so I was pretty excited. She’s a trouble maker that one. And that’s all I’m going to say about that.
As far as my grocery shopping went, it’s a good thing I have a garden, and I like to cook most of our food from scratch, because I didn’t buy much. Feeding you family for $100 a month is kind of funny, some weeks I am able to bring home a ton of food with the help of coupons and killer deals, and other weeks I just pretty much avoid the store all together and live off our stockpile.
Below are pictures of what I picked up last week.
Albertsons $ .08
On the last day of doublers last Tuesday, I was able to pick up a block of cream cheese, a bunch of cilantro and a jalapeno pepper for only $.08 after using my catalina coupons from my previous trip to Albertsons. I needed the jalapeno for a recipe, and it didn’t dawn on my until afterwards that I could have just picked a jalapeno from the greenhouse.
Darn! I totally could have saved a quarter.
Fast forward to Saturday, and The Girl and I made a last minute trip into the grocery store for movie snacks. The verdict seems to be about 50/50 in whether or not it’s appropriate to sneak snacks into a movie theater.

P.S. - Why buys Smuckers Uncrustables? Are they any good? I can’t imagine a pre-made PB&J sandwich tastes any good.
