Harris Teeter & Kroger Shopping Trips

I had the afternoon to myself and headed off grocery shopping! Since I was without the boys, I was able to shop at several stores- ToysRus, Target, Harris Teeter and Kroger. I even picked up a few Christmas presents!

The meat department had great deals at Harris Teeter this week. Unfortunately the chuck roasts were sold out (will be in stock tomorrow). I did get a raincheck though. The boneless skinless chicken breasts were also sold out. However, the manager told me he would give me the chicken breast tenderloins for the same buy 1, get 2 free deal! Score! I bought 6 packs of boneless chicken tenderloins for $13.39! I will package these for the freezer in meal size portions with a little marinade added. Other Highlights:

      You will get there! It just takes knowing when to “spend” your coupons! Also, make sure you look for coupons as you walk the aisles. There are many displays with coupons on them this time of year!
