One of my favorite ways to save money on groceries is to use the Walmart’s Ad Match Guarantee. This week I matched the following:
seedless watermelon $2.88
cucumbers $.25 each
corn on the cob $.24 each
Duke’s mayo $1.60 per 18 ounce bottle
WALMART-–Total Spent $97.54.
WINN DIXIE–Total Spent $57.78.
Grocery Saving Tip: Plan your weekly menu around super sale items.
I stocked up on eggs at $1.25 a dozen which saves me $.62 cents a dozen of the regular price. You will be seeing lots of eggs on our menus for the next couple of weeks!
I also bought about a month’s worth of meat. The ground chuck was around $2.00 a pound, which is the lowest price in our area, and the London Broil was $2.79 a pound. Read here how I prepare and cook all that meat.

Weekly Total: $155.32
July Monthly Total: $290.17
($125/week budget for six people so I am over for the month, but hopefully having that meat in the freezer will help me keep the budget lower for the next couple of weeks.)
