Weekly Shopping : 10/14 - 10/20

Not a big week of shopping I thought - and then I went and bought a billion pounds of dog food. Okay, not a billion. But nine bags. Nine. We have one dog, but there has been a $2 off Beneful dog food coupon that I printed like a mad woman because that is Early's favorite food. She loves the big chunky pieces and the variety of flavors they have. Picky girl gets bored with her food easily so I grabbed a few big bags that were on sale and then just went for it and purchased the small bags with the other coupons. If we had a garage you can bet my trunk would have been loaded down with the large bags on sale but there just isn't space.
Not that dog food is in the grocery budget...
We grabbed a number of things that weren't on sale this week because we felt like it. It's fun sometimes.
I was also able to donate pasta this week after receiving an email coupon from Mueller's with a $1/2 coupon inside. Thanks!

Thanks again to Michelle over at I Heart Publix for matching my weekly sales ad with the coupons (and for constantly posting even more coupons as they pop up all over the internet). I couldn't do it without her! These sales are over but make sure to check out next week's ad sneak peek to get your coupons ready for the sale.
