The Grand Total:
I spent $36.22 and saved $112.59! That's a savings of 78%! And included in this price was a $15 vaporizer that I did not have coupons for, which means everything else came to $20! Now if only I could save like that every week - luckily this week I already had on hand what we need for most of our meals so I was able to use the weekly budget and stock up on snack/cereal items with the mega sale. After I got that great deal on the Sobes I wish I would have had some meat in that order! lol

Has anyone else got any great deals this week? Have you shopped the mega sale? Comment and tell us all about it!

Menu Plan Monday 8/23

Be sure to head over to I'm an Organizing Junkie where every monday hundreds of bloggers link up their weekly menus - they've all been a huge inspiration to me and I'm always finding new recipes this way!

This week we're keeping it simple! I wanna take a day trip to Kansas City with my best friend in a couple weeks so I'm saving every penny I can so we can hit the outlet stores there and get fall/winter clothes for the kids! So we're gonna try to get the grocery budget as low as we can go! Stephen and Ella would be fine with macaroni and hotdogs every night, it's me that will be sacrificing lol

Monday - Steaks (we have a couple thawed and need to use 'em up!)
Tuesday - Ellas 3rd birthday! She wants Cheesy Rice for dinner and chocolate cake for desert!
Wednesday - Beanie Weenies
Thursday - Bean Tostadas and Rice
Friday - Macaroni and Cheese
Saturday - Spaghetti
Sunday - Hot Dogs and Deviled eggs
