This week's savings.

I spent about $24 this week and got quite a few groceries. These are from different stores, different deals. I'll list a few highlights, just for fun.

Gotta love the bread store for the things I can't get made. English muffins always sound like they would take forever to make, and my bagels are still inconsistent, so for $7.50 I got all the breadstuffs in this photo. We'll store things in the freezer and use them as needed, and these items will last us quite a long time.

The great deals here include free-after-coupons Sobe life water and low priced tuna, ranging from 25 to 27 cents after sale and coupons. Skippy was 53 cents after I used a Target coupon and a manufacturer coupon - not bad! Pears were on sale for 50 cents a pound, apples were on sale for 20 cents each. That whole head of cabbage was 63 cents too! Everything was on sale, those were just the really good deals.

Finally, I picked up some 93% lean ground beef. I usually grind my own, but this was a really good price and it will save me some time since it's already ground. I plan to freeze some for hamburgers, cook up some chili and mix some with ground turkey or chicken to make meatballs.

For less than $25 we'll be eating this food for far more than one week. WooHoo!

I have one national blog and one local blog I use to help me find sales, coupons and special offers. For national stuff check out http://www.moneysavingmom.com and if you live in my area, try http://www.springsbargains.com for local specifics.

Happy savings to you!

I live here in Colorado Springs. Where is the "bread store". I would love to know so I can get some good deals too!

Hey, Hilary! I usually go to the one at 4751 Flintridge - Flintridge and Academy - it's on the southwest corner near the Walgreen's there. That one sells Entenmann's, Orowheat, etc. For every $7 you spend you get an item from the free table...they also have a punch card to earn free stuff. Wednesday is 'double punch' day and Fridays you get 10% off.

According to my phone book there is a Rainbo Thrift Shop at 3232 Chelton Circle. I have been to that one too, and they had good prices on bagels the time I was there, but not as many whole grain items. The directory also lists a Wonder-Hostess Thrift Shot at 847 E. Platte, but I think that one might have closed? They are in the Yellow Pages, mixed in with 'Bakers - Retail'. Hope that helps! :)
