Monday’s With Mavis
I’d say this was a pretty good week in the grocery department… The Kellogg’s deal was my favorite of course… My shopping mantra is BUY when prices are LOW and HANG ON to your money when the prices are HIGH… It takes a bit of self control… and a decent stockpile to live this way… but it’s the end result were after… isn’t it?
** About 2 months ago Groupon had a $21 Fat Burger deal where you could buy for only $10. When I saw the offer I was pumped! I simply took the $10 out of my weekly grocery fund to buy it back in January and decided to save it for a rainy day…because you never know when the mood for a Fatburger is going to hit! If your not signed up for Groupon yet… you can sign up for it HERE
