In Response to Re: Finding a GREAT bargain in the grocery store.:
Kroger had their 16oz sour cream & cottage cheese on sale 10 for $10.00 with Oct. dates & I found 4 jars of Knorr powder chicken bouillon ( equal to 250 bouillon cubes) 1/2 off with use by dates of Sept. 2013. I bought 2 (that is equal to 500 cubes) for the nice sum of $ 5.78. The other store had a special sale buy 8, get $8.00 off & I had coupons for 2 of the items on the list so I got 2 Kraft cheddar singles Mar. 2013 dates(reg. $ 4.39 on sale for $ 2.49 minus the $1.00 & coupon =)$ .99 each, 2 Kraft 16 oz blue cheese salad dressing(ugh!! for hubby) Feb. 2013 date (on sale for $ 1.99 minus the $ 1.00 & coupon = ) $ .49 each & 4 Crystal Light 12 qt each ($2.00 minus the $ 1.00) for $ 1.00 each AND by buying the Crystal Light I got $ 3.00 coupon off my next shopping trip (like getting 48 quarts for $ 1.00). I also bought hubby his salisbury steak (reg. $ 3.28 on sale for $ 2.00 each so I bought 3) he gets 2 dinners & a lunch out of each. I also bought him his beef pepper oriental dinner(reg. $ 3.25 on sale for $ 2.50), I was going to buy him 3, but there was a sign on the shelf "buy 2 get a 16oz bag of long grain rice free" so I bought him 4 & got 2# of rice free ($ 1.14 each), that is another 8 dinners for him (I do not like the stuff), red seedless grapes were $ 1.00# & really nice so I bought a little over a # (the bird will have to share with me), bought a nice head of iceberg for $ .77 & bought hubby 24 glazed donut holes (on sale), a pretty good shopping trip.

Hi Fran that is good shopping you're like me! it's fun to save money! I actually love to go grocery shopping.Have you ever tried freezinfg the grapes? They will keep in the freezer for 10-12 months.I eat them right from the freezer they make a nice healthy cool snack.
