So, I’ve been posting about my frugal shopping weeks for a while now and it has been fun… but I do not think it will be as fun as my next feature. I want to see your FRUGAL FINDS as well!

I just love seeing the amazing deals people get; it never ceases to amaze me how coupon-smart people rock the sales.

This week I trucked it to Randall’s, Walgreens, PetSmart and CVS and spent $37.15 [only $14.07 from my pocket, however].

Randall’s

See, what had happened was… I went shopping on Sunday after beating the crowds away at Pier 1, Old Navy, Home Goods and Bath and Body Works – by the time I got to the grocery store, I was pooped. So, when I got home I flattened out on the couch and my awesome B helped with the unloading unloaded everything, therefore there is no fancy picture to share.

Eggs $1.99

Ruffles $3.18 – $1.30 in Ad = $1.88

4 Almond Joy @ $1.19 = $4.76 – B2G2 Sale = $2.38 or $0.59 each
