I stayed home today, took a vacation day...the sun is out and the sky is blue and I think I may be battling spring fever. One of the fun things about staying home during the week...when the hubby is at work and the favorite youngest daughter is at school...is that I can just putter and do my own thing. Love it!
I have not had time to coupon...and my grocery budget is reflecting that ~ badly. I am way over budget for February. It seems like grocery prices have jumped recently. I cannot believe the price of cheese epecially.
So with that being said...I thought I had better take advantage of some double coupons that Albertsons has going through today.
Here's what I got:
This was my most expensive transaction...cheese is crazy expensive. Each 12 count package of string cheese is $6.39. Right now at Albertsons if you buy one...you get one free plus I had 75 cent off coupon plus I used a double coupon. The mozzarella cheese (in the center of the picture) normally cost $5.79 (for 8oz)...using a coupon, and a double with the sale price ($3.99)...I got it for $1.99. The green curry sauce was not on sale and was expensive as well...but I want to try a new recipe and the curry is a necessity.

Now it is time to go plant some double ruffled primroses in my planter, move my strawberry plants and do some pruning. I love unexpected sunny days in February!
