Did anyone take advantage of the FREE Coffee-mate at Meijer this week?

I did. I am trying to like coffee…so I am thinking this creamer may help me along.

I love Dunkin Donuts iced coffee. I am totally addicted to Pumpkin Spice Lattes at Starbucks. Dark Mocha’s at Caribou are a complete money pit for me.

But when it comes to a straight up cup of coffee…I can’t stomach it!


Anyways, back to the groceries…

I made a quick stop early in the week at Sam’s for the economy size Romaine lettuce. Then I made a quick stop at Meijer for a few things for lunches. I spent a total of $10 on my little trips. Then I bought everything pictured at Meijer (again) for $14.75! I meant to get to Kroger, but there just wasn’t time this week. I am hoping the mega sale goes on for another week…if not maybe I can hit it sometime this weekend!

So, I spent a total of 24.75, so I have $15.25 left!

Looks like some good shopping!! BTW…I personally think the pumpkin latte at Dunkin Donuts is just as good as Starbucks and easier on the pocket :0) I love this time of the year!!!

Shelby!!! Thanks for mentioning that. I tend to stick with what I know…always afraid I will buy something and not like it. I am going to try the pumpkin latte at Dunkin…maybe today :)
