Grocery Grab Wednesday

I finally had time to do another Grocery Grab Wednesday!  Last week was crazy, so I wasn't able to get to the Sprouts on Wednesday for my regular shopping, although I did run to King Soopers on Thursday night for a little less than $50 worth of food to get us through the rest of the week.  If I have time this week, I'll try to post what I bought during that shopping trip, even though I didn't get a picture of the groceries.

Here's what I bought this week:

To be honest, even I was impressed with myself this week at how much I got at Sprouts for just over $80!  I could barely fit everything on the table to take a picture of the groceries.  It's not a secret that I like to save money by shopping this sales.  But this proves that sticking to the sales works when grocery shopping.  Out of the 36 items I bought at Sprouts this week, only 6 of those items were not on sale.

Here's a hint on how I save money on my grocery shopping: If it's not on sale, I do my best not to buy it.  I try to substitute other ingredients (that are on sale) in recipes.  I wait until our pantry staples are on sale, and stock up.  I buy items that aren't on sale if they are still a good dale (best price for similar items in the store, better price than other stores, etc).

However, I do splurge on good mozzarella cheese at full price for our pizza nights!
