My shopping week Jan 1 – Jan 3

Wow, this is a quick week, LOL. I went to one grocery store. I didn’t do walgreens or CVS this week because I didn’t see anything I needed. The robitussin deal at walgreens was awesome -but I didn’t have enough on my gift card to cover it (it wasn’t recharged yet) and I didn’t want to spend anything OOP, even if it meant I would get more back. Anyway, here is my weekly deals (click the link to see more coupon match-ups & deals that I didn’t buy)!
