Struggling with What to Cook for Dinner?
This week was a little hectic. I think it was because it was a short week with the holiday last weekend and I just had too much to do. I did get out to do a little shopping though.
I stocked up on cereal this week. We now have 19 boxes of cereal in the pantry. Most of those were purchased for $1 a box or less. I like to stockpile when I can find a good deal on cereal. I just can’t bring myself to pay $4 a box, when the cereal isn’t on sale or I don’t have coupons. I try to stock up when I can get it for around $1 a box.
This week, my first stop was at Everyday Deals Extreme Discount. I found a deal on cereal for just $.50 a box and they still had some of the mini Oreo cookies that my family loves.

2 boxes Mini Oreo Cookies $1.59
Olive Oil $1
4 heads of Lettuce $.25 each
4 boxes Cereal $.50 each
4 Cucumbers $.25 each
Cheese and Crackers $1
Total Spent $9.18
I also went shopping with my dad at Winco Foods. We picked up groceries for his house and mine. I only needed a few things and I had a few coupons to use too.
Winco Foods Purchases
4 boxes of Cereal $2.48 to $3.98, used 2 B1G1 free coupons $1.78 each
Black Forest Ham $5.15
Vlasic Relish $.96
2 Vlasic Pickles $1.78 each, used $1/2 coupon, Paid $1.28 each
Ritz Crackers $1.65 each
Roma Tomatoes $.88/lb
5 dozen Eggs $8.28
Total Spent $36.23
I also stopped by the local bread store. I was sadden to hear they will be moving sometime in the future. I love having the convenience of the bread store so close, but we do have one on the way home from church too. I picked up my usual 5 loaves of organic whole wheat bread for $5.
That brings my total spending for this week to $50.41.
What great deals did you find this week?
