I like to shop the same stores except for Aldi; we don't have one here. I especially like to take advantage of Publix's BOGO offers.

Excellent work, I do try and shop around and keep an eye out for deals and I do try and create my meals around coupons so I get a good deal on almost every meal we have....In the UK we have Aldis, Lidls, Asda(walmart) Which are the main shops I go to and Asda have been doing great voucher/coupon deals over Christmas. I try to creat a menu for 2 weeks and try to stick to buying just whats on the menu..which does save me monry! Also glad to see you are feeling a bit better and if you go over to my blog and look for the "award post" you will see that I have nominated your for a "Stylish Blogger Award" as I love reading your blog!!!

Take care and keep on the steady road to recovery
