I WAS looking forward to the lake…

Until I bought groceries for this week AND this weekend. I can’t believe how much money is costs to buy food for 8 people for 2 days!

Take a look at all of this:

I can’t believe I spent $140.36! That is almost one whole month’s budget for us!
It makes me feel better when I remember all of this normally costs $336.42!
I saved $196.06 today using coupons!

Look at all I got for free!

Here’s how to get these items for free yourself:
