Hooked on Clipping

On the menu this week at my house. So delicious!

So I haven't posted a Lagniappe in a while and I also haven't commented on how the couponing was going. Let's just say I have a lagniappe in the works for later this month and I am hooked on couponing. My best savings yet - saved $90.00 at Publix and I paid about $45.00. Pretty awesome, right? Also, each week I have seen our grocery bills go down. Before I started we were spending around $75.00 to $100.00 a week on groceries. Now my tab is normally $50.00 or less.

While it takes a LOT of work, I am not sure that I can go back. I can't believe what I was paying for so many items that I can get for free or less than .50 cents (i.e. feminine products, toothpaste, deoderant, dish soap, and so much more).

And we aren't hurting in the eating department. Actually, my pantry is fuller than before and I have tons of variety for dinners and snacks. For example: Here is our menu for this week:
Sunday: Hamburgers, baked fries and beans
Monday: Roasted shrimp with lemon pasta (see picture: courtesy of The Food Network) and salad
Tuesday: Chicken Salad with fruit
Wednesday: spaghetti and meatballs
Thursday: Broccoli soup with Cheesy biscuits

Oh, and I won't leave you without some yummy goodness before I head out for my getaway with the hubs. I will post a delicious, summer time menu tomorrow. Fresh, delightful, and so, so healthy! :)

I really really really wish I was better at the couponing and saving more money. I have good intentions but I just don't have the time! So proud of you for making the time and sticking with it!
