What Happened To July?  

Posted by Johnny

I feel as if time has moved so fast lately because I have been extremely busy. Of course as you know my in-laws visited at the end of June then again on July 4th weekend. I love having guest however, I enjoy them more when it's one family at a time not three!
Next up was the 4-H fair. Both of the kids did great on their projects and received all blue ribbons. I will try and post pictures of the projects later.
In between all of this we continued with softball. Morgan made the travelling team and they ended up winning the Northern State Tourney and going to Kentucky. They only one the first game which was against the Southern Indiana State Champs. So her team (Angola Kids League) is officially the "State Champs".
That brings me to this week...and I have done some shopping and "had" some pictures to post, but my daughter deleted them thinking I already downloaded them.
I went to Kroger which is closing in our town and is currently running 25% off everything. I bought mostly meat! I still had several Tyson q's to use and I bought some ground meat that was already reduced so it was very cheap! I canned most of the chicken tonight. I have never canned meat before, but after talking with a couple of friends I decided to give it a whirl since I am short on freezer space.

Today I made it into Meijer and picked up 11 items and here is the picture of what I got.

(2) Aunt Millies Buns @ $1 - .35/1 MQ = .30ea
(4) Old Orchard Juices @ $1 - $1/4 MQ = .75ea (coupon was sent from manufacturer)
(1) Coffee Mate Creamer $1 - .50/1 MQ = FREE
(1) Land O' Lakes Marg $1 - .40/1 MQ = .20
(2) Warm Delights @ $1 - .50/1 MQ = FREE
(1) Aunt Millies Bread $1 - FREE (11th item)
Total was $4.15...later when I was figuring this I noticed it only took off .65 for the loaf of bread so my total should have been $3.80...I will go in and get the .35

Well, I hope to have Meijer match-ups on by tomorrow. From what I can see it looks as if it will be a slow week at Meijer.

However, CVS & Walgreen's are firing up for back to school and are running some awesome deals. I intend on trying to hit both of them early this week and maybe a second trip to Walgreen's mid week to roll some RR's.

I'm glad to be back and hope to get back on schedule before school starts.
