I dread grocery shopping

Jeez it's crazy that a box of cereal is $4 now. I coupon and try to shop at different stores for deals... $100 later I barely have a week's worth of groceries.

Do you coupon? Where do you go grocery shopping?

I fell your pain. I dread going to the store every week. I have a tight budget, picky kids and want everything to be healthy. It doesn't happen :-(



I will not have a temper tantrum nor stomp across the floor.


I will not pout, scream or shout or kick against the door.

I will not throw my food around nor pick upon another.

I’ll always try to be real good because I am the mother.

I am the mother.

I am the mother.

I'm right there with you. I use coupons and shop sales in order to stretch my budget. I stock up when something is on sale for a really good price

Ugh, food is so expensive. I usually shop at Kroger, but I occasionally (about once a month) shop at a health food store and spend about twice as much on half the food :/

I coupon big time.  I saved $34 yesterday lol.  nothing like that show though.  I shop at krogers and they have great deals with their gas savings.  I am able to get gas sometimes for $2.85.  Our prices are close to $4 here.  Krogers sends coupons to me and I load coupons onto my store card too.

I hardly ever buy cereal anymore. Bacon and eggs for breakfast is almost cheaper!
I am starting with weekly dinner menus again. It did make this shopping trip today easier. I have been in a total food rut!

I prefer shopoing at super target. Between coupons, cartwheel, mobile coupons, and my red debit card, I pay much less than publix.

I KNOW!  It's crazy!

Last night I stopped for milk, clorox wipes, toilet bowl cleaner and a few other things.  Walked out with 3 bags of groceries and spent over $100!  It's insane!

ETA - And, this was AFTER coupons!

It's outrageous. Dh goes grocery shopping, he does better than I do. The bulk of our shopping is at Hannaford. Then we cherry picks at Shaw's and Market Basket, depending upon what's on sale. 

Coupons these days are hard to come by. If we find one for something we use, it's usually buy 2 or 3, and sometimes we don't need to buy more than 1. No grocery store around here doubles coupons anymore. 

Dh will sometimes buy meat/steak on his way home after work. Hannaford reduces some of them and he'll pick up steaks that are reduced anywhere from $3-$4.50! We're cooking them either that night or the next night.
