August's Stats

*Enter the YAY! YAY! GIVE AWAY $100 shopping spree!
(That's $100 AFTER coupons!!! Just think of the 'damage' we could do together at Super Kroger!!!)
Enter by Noon Monday, September 28th!

I'm kind of embarrassed that it is nearly time for me to add up my September shopping stats and I have just sat down to enter my August receipts... ah, well. Better late than never!!!

Keep in mind that I am a 'hard core stockpiler!' I look for items that my family eats/uses on a regular basis each week to stock up on. I have committed to doing this every single week for the past 18 months. Little by little I have stocked my pantry shelves so that I can 'shop' from my own pantry shelves instead of paying full price when I run out of a family essential.

August 2009
Spent: $146.33
