Shopping January 30th through February 5th

I had planned to do this the end of last week but being sick I am just now trying to get caught up. I have had a $200 budget per payday for all grocery and hba items for several months now and it seems to be going quite well. Eventually I want to drop it a little more but I am working on stocking up on groceries now. Our payday is for 2 weeks.

I had a wonderful picture where I actually worked for a long time trying to get all my grocery goodies on my table and then had to stand on a chair. Sadly I have deleted it by mistake. :(

Hubby shopped with me this week and enjoyed actually seeing the value of the coupon.
