Subtitled - 'The Crazy thoughts of a super coupon geek". Yep, it's Monday again. Formerly known as the beginning of another work week, now reborn as grocery shopping deal day!
Well. That's not entirely true. Monday was always my day to grocery shop. But after 3 years of deal shopping with only 3 tiiinnnny cupboards to store all the sweet (food) deals I rocked, I've been severely crippled. No more. My wonderful husband head my (whiney, nagging) complaints, and decided to shop online this year not only for Christmas deals, but for some basement shelving units! Sweet! (I really didn't bug him that much. Pinky swear).
Well, as always, he came through, and last week, 3 shiny new shelves were delivered to casa Glaser. We put one together over the weekend, and I think I'm in heaven! Check it out!
(Note that the stockpiling is commencing as of this week....you bet that was less than $10 for all that food!) Sweet! My rules:
1. Only canned and jarred food can be basemented-soups, tomatoes, gravy, salad dressing, pasta sauce, veggies, fruit, etc. Anything else ends up smelling like the basement. Eww.
2. I will limit my stockpile budget to $10 per week. I bet in a few months I'll be ready for....well...the end of the world is in a few weeks, so this might be a bust. But I'll give it the old college try!
Armed with excitement over my new space, I headed out to the grocery store. After two transactions and $111 worth of product, I walked out only $41 lighter. Sweet. My best deal today?
