Frugal Fridays ~ Week of 11/1 Shopping Trip

Another very simple shopping week. I promise that we are eating!  I just had such a stockpile of meat that I've been using up what I have from the freezer.  I'm going to have to make a big stock up trip soon, hopefully we get some decent sales. 
Most of this was bought to make a big pot of Italian Minestrone soup.  Such a healthy, filling, but tasty meal. I'll share the recipe soon. :)

So this week, I spent $27.95 and saved $18.88.  This is only a 40% savings, but since a lot of this wasn't on sale/produce I still felt good about it!

I'm hoping this post will prove 2 things:

#1 - you can save on stuff you buy already. I wrote my grocery list, pulled coupons for the items on my list, and still saved 40%.

#2 - that you can save on healthy food.  I'm thinking everything in this picture can qualify as "healthy" :)

I was featured :) Take a look!
