PYP on the news!

Guest blog from PYP member Sloan13


One of my hobbies is trying to see how many groceries I can get for the smallest amount of mone I do this with the help of one of my favorite website http://www.pinchingyourpennies.com/

It has allowed me to do two things:

1)Keep our grocery bill low

2)Slowly build our food storage


Sloan and I try to be frugal and our goal is to keep our grocery bill low because we would rather spend our money on other things. I love couponing, and I try to plan my meals around what's on sale and combine those sales with coupons. At two recent sales at Albertson's, I got the following:

1st sale:
168 Pampers diapers
1box Rice Krispies
1box Cascadian Farms raisin bran
1box Froot Loops
1box Frosted Flakes
2 boxes Fruit Roll-ups
2 boxes fruit snacks
2 boxes Fiber one granola bars
1 box Fiber one toaster pastries
2 boxes Fiber one pancake mix
1 box Fiber one muffin mix
3 boxes Hamburger Helper
1 bag Cheerios snack mix
1 6-can pack of Slim Fast shakes
1 box Slim Fast meal-on-the-go bars
1 box Slim Fast snack bars
1 box Bisquick
1 box Betty Crocker instant potatoes
2 bags Malt-O-Meal Blueberry muffin top cereal
My total was $29 and change

2nd sale:
4 boxes Quaker instant oatmeal packets
2 canisters Quaker oats
2 boxes Quaker granola bars
4 boxes Life cereal
4 boxes Raisin Bran
8 jars Beech-Nut baby food
2 jars Beech-Nut white grape juice
1 box Beech-Nut Rice Cereal

My total was $23 plus dollars, but I used $20 in free grocery certificates from the last sale, so it was only $3.28 out of pocket for me.
