Back from Jewel with Tons of Free Food: It’s Easy!

Total: $26.06
(Take away the 20 cans of Green Giant that I thought would work and didn’t so I’ll donate them as it wasn’t a cracking deal and the new total is:)
Actual Cost: $15.06

Yup, diapers, cookies, brownies, burgers, toiletries, crescent rolls. This is how I can feed my family for $50 a week (and how you can slash your grocery bill too!) The original stuff is here

Alrighty well I worked it out, clipped a couple of coupons and set out. The picture above is for everything I bought. I went to Walgreens first and did 3 transactions then onto Jewel where I spent some Walgreens RRs and also did 3 transactions. If that sounds too daunting though, I’ve set this up easy. I’ve got newbie transactions and then expert ones! Ready?
