Shopping List

Shop with a plan. Don't go in and just spend money onn what looks good bacause it may cost you ALOT more!

Each week go over the sales adds.. Look in your pantry and freezer and see what you need from those things on sale that will help roundd out your weeks meals..?

What meals could you make using the ad I provided you on the link below?

I make a weeks menu based on what's in the newspapers and what I have coupons for. But I also take requests into consideration. Once I'm in the store if I see something that's a good deal that either wasn't in the paper, or I missed it, I will get it, I keep my list a little flexible.
