Rainbow Foods DOUBLE Double Daze!!

Today Rainbow Foods did DOUBLE double daze. Usually they only double 5 $1 coupons but today they doubled 10!! Plus, they have some amazing meat sales this week. My husband and I went today so I could use more then 10 coupons and we got over $160 worth of groceries for about $45. It's more then I would usually spend, but I did a bit of stockpiling, especially on meat which will bring my grocery bill down for this month, and into next month at least.

I meant to take a picture of everything to show you guys but my husband put away the groceries before I had a chance to do it so I'm going to break it down and tell you what I bought. A picture would have been a lot more fun so next time, I'm hoping to share a picture!

I should also add that I clip coupons every week on Sundays or Mondays. Usually on Mondays after my daughter has gone to bed and I'm watching my TV shows. I also get coupons off the internet which are **usually** from but occasionally other places, such as from the manufacturers website!
