Anything from the garden?

  • Around 15 tomatoes

  • 1 zucchini squash

How much did I save this week?

$65.77… which is 58.16%… not too bad… I was able to get the toothpaste, the fish sticks and the Gerber baby food for free. I also did a second list of mostly free items for my grandma to purchase to donate to her church’s food bank. I didn’t grab her receipt so I can’t give you that total as well. It was a super double week at Harris Teeter (coupons doubled up to $2) which was fabulous! What all went to the food bank?

  • 2 boxes of fish sticks
  • 2 ramen noodle meals
  • 4 packages of baby food
  • 1 jar of olives
