A new Blog I found and have now bookmarked, asked the question "How much do you pay for groceries?". She is from Canada, and the prices she has listed seem a bit higher then they are here. But here are some prices that I came up with, with help from a Meijer flyer. Note: these are not the prices I pay for these items, I will tell you why at the end!

I save money using coupons WITH sales. When things are on sale, I check to see if I have a coupon. If I do- I stock up! I hardly ever pay regular price for things now. And a lot of things I get if not FREE, are at least quite a bit cheaper than the regular price.
