    I spent at LF today?

    $10 :hurray::hurray::hurray:

    Got 2 pks of chicken on sale .49/lb
    1 gallon of milk (the cheapest I could find)
    LF brand coffee creamer (hopefully it's not nasty) (instasave q-pon)
    LF brand alum foil (instasave q-pon)
    No Yolks Noodles (instasave PLUS doubled q-pon) = FREE

    I had a $5 off LF q-pon to use off my order so it all came out to $10.
    AND I really won't NEED to go to the store for about 2 weeks. I'm so stoked!!!

    So far the month of January = $150 includes beer and cigs :cheers:

    My goal was to be UNDER $250

    Congrats, before opening the thread I was afraid it was going to be a "Do I look fat in this dress?" Type question 8)

    It seems we buy just basic stuff and our weekly bill winds up being $150 if we're lucky.

    You HAVE 2.

    You'll be amazed just how much you can save on things you already buy. Once you get a system down, it doesnt take long to do.

    Warms my heart to hear that KDC!

    HG - way to rock LF!

    arodrigues - take a look at the smart shopper blog on Sundays for the drug store deals and on Wednesdays for the weekly grocery deals. I post the best deals for Lowe's Foods, Harris Teeter, Food Lion and Kroger. Some of the deals require coupons, some don't (like meat and produce). I am also about to start including weekly Walmart produce deals as well. Will have this week's up later today.

    For those of you who read my WRAL blog - I would love to see you posting on there. People tell me they appreciate the info, but it's kind of a pain to post since you can only enter comments M-F during business hours. The higher-ups like to see action on the blogs (not the kind of action you are thinking HG ;-) so if you haev the time to post - I'd appreciate it.

    Happy saving!

    frugal, thanks for posting! Someone JUST told me about the WRAL blog and I've been paying attention! My Mom and I vowed to start this weekend and challenge ourselves to stick with it..I'm always amazed when I hear about the money saved when you get organized and do a little research. Thanks for what you do!

    Question - LF has bogo this week. If u have a coupon for buying 2 of something do you have to buy 2 (as in get 4)? And do they always double up to 99 cents?

    I'm not sure if this helps or not but I know that each item rings up as a single item, half price. Saying this, I'm almost positive I have just purchase 2 in the past.

    I think you're right.

    I did notice that in the LF flyer, they have steamfresh frozen veggies listed twice. Once says BOGO and once says 5/$10. They are both the same size. But one lists certain veggies and the other just says assorted veggies, so not sure which is right. But I have two coupons for them so that's good either way.

    The assorted ones, like cauliflower/broccoli/carrots in cheese sauce are 5/10.00. Plain Janes are BOGO.
