Ingles Savings

We made our first major trip to the grocery store tonight, since we started playing the "grocery game" and following some great blogs like Southern Savers. Here are the results:

Total Bill Before Savings: $130.72
Total Bill After Savings: $78.14

Store Sale Savings: $39.43
Coupon Savings: $13.15
Total Savings: $52.58

Thats a 40% SAVINGS!

We tried to stick to sale/coupon items, but I will admit that we did buy quite a few things that weren't on sale.  For instance, I had to buy ingredients to make The Pioneer Woman's Hot & Sweet Drumsticks, which I plan on making this weekend.

Here are the pics for proof:

New Blog!

What I've done here, is import the old "simply custom" blog into my own personal blog (since they were my pictures and stories anyway).

Lets hope I can keep this one updated.
