Cheap Groceries: Fill your Pantry for $35!

by Kimberly on May 12, 2012

 Cheap Groceries

Do you want to learn how to get Cheap Groceries??  Follow along and fill your pantry for $35!  I’m challenging myself this week to come up with cheap groceries that will fill your pantry for $35 or less! I have put together items from several different stores.  My goal was to get a decent variety of items, including meat, salad, toiletries, laundry detergent, etc. I think overall my plan turned out fairly well. I know that many of you are really struggling financially. I was thinking about when I first started to use coupons, and desperately needed things like laundry detergent, toilet paper, that I just didn’t have money for. To be honest when I first started using coupons I couldn’t shop every week. I started with shopping trips like this one.  I needed CHEAP Groceries and FAST!   Some of the items I have on here, you probably don’t need, but they produce profit (Money Makers), which helps pay for the meat, and costly paper products, so if you’re new to using coupons, it’s important to follow this plan to keep your cost down. Take a quick look at all of the items below….You’re going to be able to fill your pantry for $30.19 + tax! Pretty amazing!!  You’ve gotta love cheap groceries!!
