First let me say that I LOVE COMMENTS :) If you stop by my blog, let me know :) I am more than willing to answer questions, help you get started, or explain something. Or, if you have tips for me, I would LOVE to hear them!!
Its been quite some time since I have been to HEB and while Kroger doubles/triples coupons they have been on my nerves lately. I decided to help out my grocery bill, I'm just going to shop sales, and make meals from that. Today's trips were a bit higher because DH HAD to have pop that wasn't on sale, I made a donation for Breast Cancer and I bought 6 lbs of hamburger and 5 lbs of chicken to help replenish the stockpile I lost in Hurricane Ike. I also went to Randalls to check things out there...
First, HEB has "meal deals" buy x and get y free. Usually there are several y's. :) There are also deals coupled in pairs in a true buy x get y fashion.

Ok, little side note on the chicken. Some hard core couponers refuse to pay people to "de-skin and bone" their chicken. However, this is just one of those things that I am more than willing to pay for. I can hardly stand to trim the fat off much less rip a whole chicken apart.... just a little comment there :)
I also went to Target last night. We got a ton of Halloween stuff, but I did get some deals too!
