I had a pretty big shopping trip yesterday to Winco. My last shopping trip was 2.5 weeks ago and I spent $113 on groceries. My goal is to make the products I purchased last for another 2 weeks. I saved $21.55 in coupons alone and if you shop at Winco you know they do not have “sales”. I feel pretty good about my meal plans and I think I will make it to 2 weeks.

That is wonderful! Sounds like you have a good plan in mind. I love that. That's what I had to do when I realized how much we were spending. Having a plan, such as list for the store and meal plans, has really made it possible for us to spend a lot less.

And, we JUST got that store here! It's somewhat of a drive, but I have heard such good things about it.

Yes, I have my plan and my list
I really like Winco for non-perishable items. Sometimes their fruits and veggies go bad quick but my family eats them so fast it isn't normally a problem for us.

We made it to 2 weeks!
I feel really good about my stockpile that I don't feel like "I have to go to the store" all the time. Beside fruits and veggies I don't have much on my list for this week. Making some progress!!
