The Daytona Sale continues this week. Too bad the Gatorade price has increased. Otherwise the sale appears to be the same and than the blueberries and $.99 eggs Kroger is looking a bit uneventful this week.

Dial liquid Hand Soap is .88 minus the .35 coupon doubled makes these .30 each!

Kroger Comforts diapers are $6.49 this week. You can print a $3 off coupon on the kroger website. I've never tried these but the price is right. These are $5.99 a pack in Cinncinnati so you may want to wait till next week and see if we get the better sale price.

How's it Going

I am still struggling to get my budget down to $50 dollars a week. I did not think it would be quite this hard. The problem I seem to have is deciding when to buy the good deals and when to let them go. There are some things I may just not be able to afford on this budget.

My new tactic is to make a list before I go shopping and check my new pantry to be sure what I am buying fills an actually need. We have yet to waste anything I have bought but how much Chef Boyardee are we really going to want to eat? No matter how cheap the cans get with my coupons spaghetti and and sauce will still be a cheap options as well.
