Week 10 Grocery Notes: The gas prices are skyrocketing once again, if they continue at this rate, I may have to switch to Bi-weekly menus so I don’t waste our grocery savings on gas expenses!

:thumbsup: A few things I’d like to share

I really do love using coupons to get great deals on groceries (and often free groceries) but using coupons effectively often requires multiple trips to multiple stores to get the best deals. Since the gas prices have exceeded $3.50 per gallon, I am less inclined to drive long distances to check for unadvertised sales.
I also try to make sure that the menu’s I share can be recreated by anyone by following basic seasonal sales patterns, whether they have access to coupons or not.

  1. We tried the Spring Strawberry spinach salad yesterday for dinner and it was SO GOOD! I found strawberries in town for only .99 a pound but they had to be used right away. Thanks :thumbsup:
